Like much of the software we test, eBook creators are in a bit of transition. Many still download to you desktop, but newer, more up-to-date programs tend to host their operating systems on the web. You often pay per project or for a subscription for online programs, while you purchase more traditional programs outright. We wouldn’t agree to a subscription costing more than $10 a month or a one-time payment more than $50, unless you’re publishing regularly.  
If you’re an Apple user, you have the benefit of keeping all your creative projects in one place and don’t need to maintain separate accounts on different sites around the web. iBooks lets you use your AppleID and password to access the application for free. Even though it’s a standard application released with Apple products, we found this eBook publisher’s templates to be better looking and of a higher quality than those in other programs we tested. iBooks Author has many of the same features as other e-publishing software, including translation and branding tools, and you can use MOBI, PDF and HTML files in the application. One of the only problems we had with software during testing was that it had a slow loading rate – you have to wait around a bit while the app processes your input. Besides that, iBooks Author has all the support and tools you need get started with web and eBook publishing on your Mac device.
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 with cash for. Clearly nobody can afford to print and distribute free physical books, but in this age of tablets, smartphones and laptops the electronic book offers a fantastic, and very cheap, way to spread this content. If you do have some cash to spare, take a minute to browse our guide to the best graphic design books – you can be sure you won't be wasting your money. 
Writing your book was the hard part. Now its time to bring your book to life. In the world of publishing, this means having a solid design, a clean and easy-to-read text layout, and a style that matches the message of your book. It means having a professional and eye-catching cover that will attract your target audience. It means finding someone who is both an expert designer and has a deep passion for book design. Fortunately, I am both of those things. I am no stranger to hard work, tight deadlines, and going above and beyond to create the perfect design. I’ve worked professionally in the publishing industry for more than 8 years. I spent the first 3.5 years working for a self-publishing company formatting the interior and cover designs for paperbacks, hardcovers, and eBooks in every genre imaginable. For the past 5 years, I have worked for a math company creating/designing textbooks for publishers such as National Geographic Learning, Pearson Education, and Cengage. Each of these publishers demands a high level of professionalism and expertise from every design that I create. I am an expert in Adobe InDesign, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Acrobat, and Microsoft Word. I have extensive experience with typography, image manipulation, and page layout. I am very familiar with the requirements for both print and eBooks being published through Amazon KDP, Create Space, IngramSpark, and others. I am also very familiar with the PDF requirements for a book or project that is being sent to a large-scale printer, such as Lighting Source or Quad Graphics. Your project is important to me. If you’re not happy with the design, neither am I. From start to finish, I will work with you to create the design that you want for your book. No matter the genre, book size, or page length – every book deserves to look amazing. Let’s get started with yours.
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. When you sit down with your marketing team and designer to decide on your brand style guide, establish rules for such design elements as fonts/sizes, color schemes, charts/graphs, borders for screenshots and images, headers, etc. Creating easy-to-follow guides and templates for your various marketing assets like ebooks, presentations, etc. will make it easy for you and your team to implement a consistent branding style throughout your marketing collateral. HubSpot, for example, has an ebook template created in InDesign to ensure our ebooks have a consistent look no matter who created them.

Ebooks these days are getting immense response for the simple reason that these are easily available. There are thousands of ebooks about everything. Starting with typography, wireframes, logo designs and apps. All those books you can find in Amazon or Apple stores. But you know that there is no guarantee that book will be useful or you will learn something new. Sometimes ebooks costs from $10 to $50 and more.

QuarkXPress works directly with App Studio to give you complete control over the design of your app content utilizing the world’s most efficient environment for laying out content for multiple devices and orientations.

Promote your ebook through your blog. For instance, consider publishing an excerpt of your ebook as a blog post. Or write a separate blog article on the same topic as your ebook, and link to it at the end of your post using a call-to-action to encourage readers to keep learning. (Note: This very blog post is the perfect example of how to promote an offer you created with a blog post.)

I submit that unless and until publishers learn to create stories that can be total experiences for the reader, and still come in at less than 150 pages, they will not win at the BookShot game.  Also, unless and until publishers learn that good DRM helps the publisher and the author make money, then we will eventually not have to worry about the sales of these books being poor because readers will be getting them for free.

While ebooks can be catered to achieve certain goals, the way most marketers use ebooks is to generate new leads at the top of the funnel. To achieve this goal, your ebook content should be majorly educational -- not product focused -- in nature. But does that mean you can't or shouldn't sneak in a few mentions of your product or service into them when appropriate? Absolutely not! In fact, when people are just starting to learn about your business in the awareness stage of the sales cycle, they probably know very little about the products and services you offer.

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.

4.  The value of intimacy.  All other publishing systems require the author and his reader to be located inside separate spaces in the digital universe.  We have solved this problem of lack of intimacy and privacy by including an Author and Reader Forum right inside the same mobile application.  The forum has all the features of a Goodreads, but the reader and author are not relegated to a separate group within a much larger playing field of authors and readers.  The communication is between one author and his subscribed readers–not between thousands of “Goodreads Authors” and the distracted readers who subscribe to Goodreads.com.  Again, this saves the publisher and reader a lot of communication headaches as well as making the sending and receiving of digital content a private and meaningfully simple affair.   Thoreau would be proud!
Why can't you just attach what you have to a landing page and be done with it? Word documents, PowerPoints, and similar templates are perfect for creating your ebook, but not for delivering it. Because these templates are editable, the contents of your ebook are too easily corrupted, distorted, or even lost when moving from your computer to the hands of your future leads. That's where PDFs come in.

Lucidpress provides a number of features that allow you to include interactive elements with your ebook. Embed a video with your ebook to provide a visual look at what you’re writing about. Include links within the text so people can follow them to learn more about the subject. This helps show readers that you have done your homework and want the audience to know more about it. Include scrolling text areas within your ebook to provide even more information.
Amazon recently unloaded a new version of their Kindle to the perhaps “less than eager” reading public.  With publishers losing over 3 billion dollars a year to eBook piracy, mostly due to the insecure Digital Rights Management of Amazon’s and other eBook retailer’s platforms, it makes you wonder how long publishers will keep selling their digital and print books through the giant online retailers.  But, most importantly, the reading public is changing their reading habits.  Each day, more and more readers are using whichever mobile device they have with them, so it makes having “extra” devices like the Kindle superfluous.
Co-founders Nicole Smith and Richard Tapp explain the concept: “It’s a mini resource for your creative projects and food for your creative thoughts. We’ve included our own valuable references and resources we know and trust as a means to help you get your projects done. We want to give you the creative push from a direction you may not have thought of, be it informative, inspirational, or simply entertaining.”
Creating an eBook can be a big task, especially if you use complicated software like InDesign. Then again, Microsoft Word or PowerPoint might not be robust enough. Starting your design with an eBook template will save you a lot of time and money. A professionally-designed eBook template gives your book strategy a head start. It will impress anyone looking for high-quality content without expensive software. Our free eBook templates are simple to customize, so you can meet your brand’s standards in almost no time. From cover to cover, our eBook templates will help you create a gorgeous book that you'll be proud to share.
ePUBee Maker is a lightweight program that can help you to create e-books starting from simple documents. It has integration with Microsoft Word, so you can easily convert the content of Word documents.  It allows you to save the files as .ePub format while maintaining the images, text formatting, chapter division, and paragraphs. The application converts the document to .ePub file with the help of the express procedure or the extended process wizard. ePUBee Maker provides you the opportunity to choose any image present on your system as cover, as well as edit metadata. Further, you can add information just like the name of the author, title of the book, language, and filename, necessary for saving the document to your system. Plus, add a large series of user-defined pieces of information such as publishing house, date of release, and more.

One publisher and one administrator included. All others are designated as readers and cannot create or sell eBooks in the Studio/Store. Both conventional and multimedia (ePub3) books can be created, sold and downloaded. Perfect for the self-published author who wants to have a quick way to brand him/her self and have a way to publish and market directly to readers through a cross-platform mobile platform. This installs on the server of the client with assistance of our technologist.
It supports input file formats that is .DOC or .DOCX of MS Word which can be altered to ePUB extension. Since this program only converts from an MS Word file, it offers restricted features. In order to start the conversion process you need to go to the option that says “Add Word File/Files” and choose the desired MS Word file from your computer and then select the preferred destination/folder where you want to save your eBook. Now initiate the process of conversion of the document and get it in the ePUB extension within minutes.
Easy Ebook Creator provides the options you need to produce high-quality e-books.

I also offer design and formatting for self-publishers who intend to submit their books to online book printers such as Createspace, KDP, Lightning Source/Ingram Spark, Lulu, or Blurb.

“This year, we choose to show how design enables us to create a common future beyond all the differences, whether it’s for products, services, or public policy choices.” — Gaël Perdriau, Mayor of Saint-ÉtienneThe Saint-Étienne Design Biennale opens today in central France. Over the next month, the city will host a variety of exhibitions, events, and conferences that address salient topics in the design, art, and research community. As part of this year’s Biennale, the Material Design team collaborated with tech guru John Maeda to present the interactive exhibition Design in Tech. Opening this week at Cité du Design—and running until April 22—attendees can get hands-on with Material Design’s approach to color, typography, icons, and elevation, and explore key insights from Maeda’s 2019 Design in Tech Report. We hope to see you there! And for those that can’t make it, we’ve got an interview with Maeda and Material Design’s Rachel Been on the symbiotic (and evolving) relationship between design and development.Read “A New Religion for Designers”
6.  The value of promotion.  I wrote a separate Slideshare about the way our Embellisher™ is a simple and effective way to market eBooks.  In fact, this value is so important that I’m holding frequent webinars and teaching online courses about it.  Once again, the value is in the fact that since we’re a mobile app, the author can take it with him/her to work on the run, so to speak.  The total privacy is the factor that our competition does not have, and it makes our system more valuable to the publisher.

Sqribble is developed by Adeel Chowdhry, who is a well-known internet entrepreneur and best seller, with over ten years of experience. Adeel has previously created worldwide hits such as Pixel Studio FX which sold tens of thousands of units all around the world. He’s known for creating high quality professional solutions and I expect no less from Sqribble.
Most of us start with a manuscript — a Microsoft Word, ODF (OpenOffice Document File), or RTF (Rich Text Format) doc that we’re looking to turn into an ebook. Now, as I said last month, a Word doc isn’t an ebook. But you can format the text and even insert images, hyperlinks and the other paraphernalia that make up an ebook, and then use an app to convert the document into ePub format.
When Abby Hoffman said, “Steal this book,” back in the 1970s, there were no eBooks.  He meant that the reader should literally steal his paperback.  Flash-forward to 2016, and readers can steal eBooks with no trouble as long as publishers allow the DRM of an Amazon or an iBooks.  Anybody right now can do a search for “Cross Kill and torrents” and get a download of the complete BookShot.  This is why publishers are losing three billion dollars per year (and climbing).
As the title suggests, this free ebook from Route One Print brings together key pieces of advice from experienced graphic designers – including Jacob Cass (aka Just Creative) and Brent Galloway – to make your life easier. "From client management to typography, brand identity to finding alternative textures in Photoshop, this ebook offers practical tips for designers and showcases new ways to think about design," says the blurb. 

1.  It’s portable.  In other words, when you use other methods of creating eBooks, buying eBooks and selling eBooks, you have to hassle through a lot of “not-so-simple” logins, separate devices, and other confusing (to the non-nerd) steps in order to read an eBook.  The Embellisher™ system is a mobile app that contains everything a publisher and his readership needs to enjoy both conventional and enhanced (embellished) eBooks.
The problem I have is with editing my work in the software. If your work has lots of text and pictures, as in an illustrated children's book with text under the images, this software will drive you crazy. Move an image, and it just vanishes, and then the line of text snaps up or down to a different page -- there is no 'undo' button to take you back, so you have to insert the image all over again, but when you do re-insert the image, make sure to add a few more blank pages, otherwise the re-inserted image will throw off the rest of the images and text.
