10. The value of saving money. I left this one for last because it’s usually the value that publishers look for first when they are deciding upon a new technology that changes things the way ours does. Remember the value of planning and preparation? It began back in the days of Quality Circles Management, and ended with the death of the professor I got to know personally, Peter F. Drucker, and his “knowledge workers.” Sure, you have to spend some money up-front to train your authors to use the promotional tools and to create using our ePub3 Creator Studio. But once the assembly line is in place, the products you will be creating will have a much more streamlined, efficient and cost-saving value to the eReader and to the author. Sadly, the “big 5” have given that effectiveness to a limited stable of “star authors,” but we aim to change that in a hurry. Are you with us?

With Lucidpress, it’s easier than ever before to create an ebook and share it with the world. You can write the text of your ebook in Google Drive and import it easily into the ebook creator software. You can create a layout in InDesign and import that as well. Make your ebook while in the cloud, or use Lucidpress’s offline version if you’re away from the internet. Once you’re connected again, it will automatically sync. Even if you have very little experience when it comes to design, Lucidpress gives you the tools to create an ebook that will impress and inform.
11. A professional ebook design uses standard formatting, not block formatting. This means that there is not extra spacing between paragraphs, and all paragraphs—except for the first paragraph in a chapter and the first paragraph after a scene break—are indented. We recommend a .25 inch indent, rather than the full .5 inch indent that Word gives. You can read more about standard versus block formatting in our blog post here.
Measure your visitors to your online eBook using Google Analytics. Once you add the tracking code to your eBook, you can get the data from GA. The data will tell you about your audience behavior, including the number of new visitors, the turnout of the existing visitors, the specific pages they visit the most, from which web-sites, social networks, or search engines they access from, bounce rate, how long they stay on your eBook, geographical distribution of your readers and much more.
7. The value of marketing the final products: the eBooks. Once again, I found this value so important that I wrote a separate Slideshare on the topic. The “big 5” makes this aspect of the business the cornerstone of their enterprise, and yet they are not spending the money to innovate digitally the way we have at EMRE Publishing. They simply give the author a website and a book page and tell them, “Go ahead, make your own promotions.” Little time, money or educational effort is spent to train their authors on how to use the digital marketing tools properly. We do this, and it does pay off in more sales, more intimacy between the author and reader, and a happier reader experience.

I'm the indie writer's best friend, for I love the written word and love to edit! I also transcribe manuscripts from both handwritten notes and dictated voice files. With my skills and strengths, I can make your project shine or create one that shines for you that is guaranteed to need little editing! I'm a thorough, all-around editor, not just a glorified proofreader. Look at my test scores: 1st Place and Top 10% only...none of that Above Average or Top 20% or 30% for me! I present these additional qualifications: • Professional writer for over 20 years, nonfiction (newspaper columnist) and fiction (35+ novels of romance and women's fiction published under my pen name(s), plus ghostwritten titles). • Proofreader (worked for pharmaceutical giant Abbott Labs in this capacity), eliminating errors in grammar, punctuation, missing or incorrect words, inconsistencies in names, numbers, and formatting. Although commonly believed to be the same thing as editing, these are two different things; proofreading is properly done *after* editing to ensure an error-free document. • Experienced editor, incorporating the overall document: typos, overused/misused/missing words, incorrect facts, inconsistencies, redundancies, contradictions, implausibilities, pacing, confusing narrative, pronoun misuse, adverb overuse, point-of-view (in fiction) errors, tense, transitions, clarity, syntax, and of course, grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure. *I am an all-around editor, not merely a glorified proofreader.* • With so many published romance novels to my name, I possess a thorough understanding of the genre and know what works and what doesn't. I am a "book doctor" who can clean up plots that contain outlandish elements (e.g., the billionaire who personally meets with the woman hired to clean his offices to explain her job duties to her, etc.) and revise them into a plot that is both engrossing and *believable.* • Ability to turn in a manuscript that needs very little editing due to my writing skills (and if the price is right I will submit a manuscript that's ready to be published). • Ability to make editing suggestions without changing the writer’s voice. • Courtesy sheet of suggestions to improve clients' writing, along with specific examples. • Transcription and typing (90 WPM), specifically of medical reports, dictated or handwritten text for fiction and nonfiction manuscripts, and one-on-one conversations (I do not transcribe reports with multiple speakers). • Thorough knowledge of medical terminology; qualified to do medical editing and proofreading. • Accurate and thorough service. • Ability to juggle multiple projects simultaneously (numerous open jobs often represent repeat clients who provide work sporadically and for whom I am not actively working). • Quality work at reasonable rates, with an increased fee for rush jobs (but I don't write for 1 cent per word and certainly not less than that, nor do I edit for 0.001 cent per word). My...

After researching and signing up for eBook creator services, we think the Atavist platform is the best option, and it is versatile enough to help you with most of your web-publishing needs. Since it isn’t exclusively an eBook creator, it can also help you publish photobooks and magazines.

Its easy-to-use tools are accessible from the homepage, and there’s tons of support to help you navigate through all the options and settings.
