EMRE Publishing, LLC wants to stay ahead of its competition. This is why Jim Musgrave wanted to stay with an open source product. It’s much faster and easier to have a talented developer create an “add on” for the client than it is to lock-in the reader with proprietary code that will deprecate the user experience and cost the customer more. We are the only multimedia app publisher who allows the publisher/author to collect 100% of the cost of his/her titles once they purchase one of our publishing plans. For example, if the author wants to upgrade a present title using the studio then he/she can buy the Advanced ePub3 Production Plan for very little money.

First of all, none of the files created by these apps will display quite the way that you expect them to in various ereaders, especially if you’ve got an ebook that’s got any complicated formatting such as drop-caps, tables, inset images, fancy typography, etc. The apps will try to reproduce on the screen what you were trying to create for the printed page, but often the style rules that the apps try to create make an incredible mess in one or more ereader. Everything may display as plain text on a Nook, while small images may fill the page on an old Kindle, while no images display at all on the Kindle app on your computer.
An amazingly easy-to-use digital bookmaking tool, this app is accessible even to kids in early elementary school grades to produce and publish their own simple books or comics with images, videos, and audio.

Keeping the reader in a single application allows the publisher to charge less for each title sold, and so nothing needs to be paid to a middleman distributor (like Amazon) if the publisher plays his cards right. Marketing money can be better spent on directly reaching potential and current readers on their mobile devices rather than through the unwieldy algorithms and proprietary software of the Amazon Kindle (or the Apple, or the Nook, etc.).
If you take a look at the ebooks HubSpot has launched in the past 6 months, for example, you'll notice that they all have very consistent branding and design elements throughout.

9. Use dingbats or images for your scene breaks. Simple asterisks look unprofessional (although, truth be told, most readers don't care), and empty lines look accidental and can be confusing if they occur on a page break. A dingbat or an image will make your ebook stand out, and you can use something that represents an element of your book. Click here for instructions on how to create the perfect scene break using the Jutoh software. (Note: the first paragraph after a scene break should not be indented.)

When you’re selling products online, professional eBook design isn’t just “nice-to-have” – it’s a must have! I know from my 8+ years industry experience when your eBook looks polished and professional, it boosts your credibility, keeps your brand cohesive and consistent, attracts truckloads of sign-ups (to your lead magnet), converts into sales (ka-ching), and draws lots of new clients and eyes on your product, AND it also amps up your brand recognition (... now who doesn't want that?)
While your ebook is a digital publication, you'll likely be offering it as a downloadable file such as a PDF, and despite what you might think, many of the people who download will actually prefer to print it out and read it on paper rather than on a screen. For this reason, it's important to make sure your ebooks are printer-friendly. For example, avoid designs that leverage double-page, horizontal layouts that don't translate well to print. The best way to know if your design is printer-friendly? Print it yourself!
There has always been a healthy market for commercial books written by experts, and this isn’t likely to change any time soon; sometimes there’s just no substitute for splashing your cash and getting high-quality content in return. That said, there’s a growing movement towards free and “freemium” content on the web, and the quality of the content is often on a par with the books you’d part cash for.
2. The value of delivery to the end consumer: a reader of digital content. The reader gets to experience exactly what the author/publisher intends to deliver. Not only that but the eBook can be in conventional (ePub2 format, .mobi Kindle format, or .pdf Adobe Reader format) as well as the cutting-edge ePub3 format. And, if they wish, they can push a button to order the print-on-demand version of the book and have it shipped to them. There are no “middlemen” taking a slice out of that business experience, as in a gatekeeper’s fee or as in confusing extra logins and deliveries to different devices. The communication is between the publisher and the reader–scratch off those sneaky middlemen!
