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).
BIO: I’m a professional writer living in Portland, OR with a lifelong passion for the power of the written word. I’ve written everything from ebooks (9 to date) to blogs, sales collateral to web content, ad copy to letters, business proposals to sales plans and training manuals. WHAT IS MY BACKGROUND? I bring more than ten years of sales and marketing business management experience to every project. Previously, I've worked in fields including software, real estate, law, publishing, advertising and services in regions such as the UK, Europe, Australia, Indonesia, and the US. JUST HOW DO I DO WHAT I DO? By asking questions, listening and considering what I hear, followed by collaborative brainstorming to develop a plan we both embrace with confidence and enthusiasm. As you seek synergy within your organization, I seek it with my clients. HOW CAN YOU LEARN MORE ABOUT ME? Feel free to browse my portfolio projects, my website www. theguidetobusking.com, and my projects at www. leanpub.com/u/tomsenkus
My passion is storytelling, that almost-lost art of making sense with style, conviction and ease, no matter if that tale is a book of fiction or non-fiction, a training manual requiring precision and branding, or a monthly newsletter to members or prospects that means engagement or leads. I help authors of all kinds refine their stories so they can reach their full potential, free of errors and omissions, yet full of the writer’s own style and voice. I help design environments in books and other publications that attract attention to that message in a sleek and modern style, without clutter and never detracting from the integrity of the narrative. My experience in book publishing allows me to guide authors through the self-publishing maze, including Createspace, Lightning Souce/IngramSpark, Lulu and Blurb for print books; Kindle, iBooks, Kobo, Nook, Google for eBooks; and intermediaries such as Smashwords, BookBaby and Draft2Digital. My clients also benefit from my knowledge of and feel for the general-interest, health, and business audiences, gained through three decades of work as a writer, editor, and designer interacting daily with readers of all types and callings. My editing/design services include: * Concept or developmental editing * Copy/line editing * Final proofreading * Book and periodical cover and interior layout and formatting * eBook conversion and submission * Publishing and distribution consultation Let me help you take your work, your creativity, your message to the next level – the eye level on the Top Shelf.
Writing a book is hard enough, and you shouldn’t have to deal with clunky, unintuitive eBook publishing software on top of it. As you browse through the programs we reviewed, consider whether each one’s interface and support options fit your needs. During our research, we paid attention to each program’s layout and design and assigned it a grade based on how intuitive its interface is.
And now you are confused over which eBook Creation Software to use. Google is kind enough to put across fifty or so software tools for you to choose from. But that doesn’t lessen the trouble of finding out which one is better. You can’t keep trying each and every eBook creation software. So, we have tried to ease your burden by listing a few simple and efficient eBook creation software which will make it easier for you to select the right platform.

No competitor has to create what the Embellisher eReader App includes, and the CEO, Jim Musgrave, has vowed to add even more features shortly. He says that sticking to open source coding is the key to his fast turn-around times. “The proprietary companies are more interested in keeping the readers locked into their app for commercial purposes. We want to sell the publishers a turnkey installation that will give them a most advantageous marketing platform and exciting reading experience.”
It’s worth testing different formats to see which works best in a given asset. The good news is that with interactive content, it’s much easier to perform these types of tests than it would be with a static PDF. You’ll gain more insight into how people are engaging with your content, and be able to update your asset based on performance data a lot more easily.
We at EMRE Publishing, LLC, believe the next generation of publisher and reader will be using mobile platforms to both create and consume all kinds of new eBooks, including the ePub3 formatted multimedia types and soon, the Virtual Reality books and games that will be coming down the pipe.  Why?  Mostly because of money, of course.  Publishers and consumers are getting tired of getting ripped-off while selling their eBooks and while reading their eBooks.  Let me break it down for you, lest you be unaware of the revolution taking place technologically.
The double-payments readers have to make when they buy or upgrade (see the new Oasis Kindle above) their Kindle eReader.  In addition, the inflexible (think proprietary) nature of their eReader software prevents .ePub3 titles from using all that they are truly capable of using.  For example, all Kindles cannot utilize any interactive or JavaScript interactive programming inside an eBook the way our Embellisher (TM) platform does.   Therefore, eBooks that have interactive content (think academic textbooks) cannot be used properly inside a Kindle.

You can look at the books supported and created by epub, or a standard E-book format through iBooks to register them at iBookstore. Support for iBooks` fixed-layout format. Please note that fixed-layout format is not ideal for long texts such as novels. You can put the photo and video, music in iPhone/iPad in your book and write on it. You can record your voice into the book. You can also move, enlarge, reduce and rotate a photo in a book by touching it. The book can be shared via iTunes and E-mail. You can also create PDF document and print it.
Note: there was some worry when iBooks Author first came out that the app’s terms of service didn’t allow users to sell their books anywhere but the iBooks store. That’s not the case. If you use Apple’s .ibook format, you can only sell through the iBooks store. All other formats have no restrictions. Read more on Apple’s FAQ here. We make all our guides in iBooks author and export as a PDF.

A staple for any book, both print or digital, be sure to include a table of contents in every ebook you publish. This not only gives readers a sense of how the ebook is organized, but it also makes it easy for them to reference individual chapters if they decide only certain ones are relevant to them or if they want to refer back to specific sections later. To make this even more user-friendly for your readers, some programs like InDesign make it possible for you to hyperlink chapters/sections, creating a sort of interactive table of contents and allowing readers to jump to a certain section of the ebook when they click on the corresponding link in the table of contents.

This ePub3 Creator Studio is the only application that allows authors to create music playlists right inside their eBook. Jim was using Booktrack.com to create online eBooks with sound effects, and he wanted to include this dynamic inside his studio for authors to use. The result is this cool method of inserting the choice of songs or audiobook reads right inside your eBook. The reader simply has to click on the handy “music note” icon inside the Embellisher eReader, and the playlist appears. The only disadvantage Jim saw at Booktrack was that the reader was forced to listen to sound. Therefore, the resulting Playlist Creator Tool allows the reader to choose if he/she wishes to listen to the selections. You can see a sample of how the result of this tool looks inside the sample for the Family Love Time Capsule. (Note: you must first register to use the eReader.)

Also, all of these programs have idiosyncrasies; most create ePub files that are very difficult to customize, since they treat any style change (italics, font size, indents, etc.) as a unique case, rather than applying a document-wide style. If you use the Styles formatting rules that all of these apps allow — apply a Body style to all body text paragraphs, for example, rather than formatting them as 12pt. Palatino and hitting the tab at the beginning of every paragraph — the results will be better, but inevitably the ePub file produced this way contain WAY too much code, enough to swell the file size. This is a problem when you upload the file to Amazon’s KDP, which will deduct a “transport fee” of $0.15 per megabyte of file size on each download from your royalty. (I’ll be speaking to all of these challenges more in coming months. I’ll also say why it’s probably not worth your time to create files in Apple’s wonderful iBooks Author. iBooks Author is now more of an option than it was when I wrote this originally; still, not for the feint of heart.)

The artful collision of technology, learning, and literacy is an idea promoted in the Common Core Standards, which is likely your rule book if you teach K-12 in an American public school. This is a new age of literacy where students can read, research, write, publish, and socialize on the same device sitting right in their lap with a pinch-and-zoom elegance that somehow makes the whole process seem easier than it really is.

8.  The value of being on the cutting edge of new technology.  You guessed it?  Yep, I wrote a blog about this one valuable feature of our product:  ePub3 technology.  This is important to the publisher because once your authors are trained properly about how to create ePub3 “calling cards,” they will also learn to tailor their messages to fit their genre or “brand.”  Big 5 publishers often forget that each author should be given the respect of being a brand unto him or her self.  In fact, this was one of the main reasons I switched from publishing through traditional publishers to building a platform to publish independently–with the most value in mind.  Therefore, all authors in our system are trained to understand they are promoting their creative work and their overall brand (their uniqueness).  They are not, in effect, corporate clones.  They are creative artists.
