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.

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.

It’s about standing out and grabbing attention. Plus, it’s a way to engage your readers better. If they enjoy the experience of reading your book (“flipping” the pages) they’re more likely to get value from your content and keep reading until the end where your pitch or call to action is! Another thing about flip books is that you can embed them on your website with a simple piece of code that Sqribble provides once you publish your book. Awesome!
A few of the platforms we reviewed mimic social media accounts – almost like LinkedIn accounts for self-publishers. These can be a great resource for finding opportunities to host your work or connect with other authors. We liked services that let you customize your profile and make professional connections so you can publish your work to as many places on the web as possible.

9.  The value of growing the publisher’s brand.  When a publisher purchases a tailored installation of our system, he or she receives much more than a piece of cold software.  No, we provide the human training and the motivation to realize the importance of giving independent authors the respect they deserve.  We want our publishers to send their authors to school before installing our system.  That’s why we created the online courses, online tutorials, and online webinars.  I learned when I taught through the Caltech Industrial Relations Center that the successful companies relied on training to make their teams successful.  We don’t sell our products to publishers unless they completely understand the importance of training to their publishing business.
Apple has never let us down, so does iBooks Author. iBooks Author is an amazing and free app that allows anyone to create beautiful iBooks Textbooks or any other kind of ebook for iPad and Mac. Books created with iBooks Author export as .ibooks files and can be published to the Apple iBooks Store, or they may be exported as PDF. With galleries, video, interactive diagrams, 3D objects, mathematical expressions, and more, these books bring content to life in ways the printed page never could. Start with one of the Apple-designed templates that feature a wide variety of page layouts. Add your own text and images with drag-and-drop ease. Use Multi-Touch widgets to include interactive photo galleries, movies, Keynote presentations, 3D objects, and more. Preview your book on your iOS device or Mac at any time. Then submit your finished work to the iBooks Store in a few simple steps.
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.
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.
So, I'm trying to activate, it simply won't work. I email support, 3-4 days of no help. It was written that I'll get a response in 24 hours or less, that was false. Without activating the product, you cannot export your eBook anywhere. I'm pretty displeased. I'll be updating this review in a week or so, maybe five days or less to inform you if the problem was handled or not. As of now, definitely not worth the money.
I want you to just use a theme for your first ebook… because your ebook only wins if it’s a great topic + a good title + very useful + people are finding it and trusting you enough to download it + people are sharing it because they found it useful. The best custom design in the world can’t fix those if they’re broken. And a theme helps you get it out and get some feedback.

If your typography isn’t on point, this next ebook is for you. Type Classification is a helpful beginner’s guide to typography. It should give you the foundations you need to not only start classifying various forms of type but also understanding when and how to use them to alarmingly great effect. It covers a history of each of the type forms and the basic facts you need know about them.

Get writing! Here, you can approach each chapter the way you might write a long blog post -- by compartmentalizing each chapter into smaller sections or bullet points, as shown in the picture below. This helps you write simply and clearly, rather than trying to use sophisticated language to convey each point. It's the most effective way to educate readers and help them understand the new material you’re providing.


At their core, PDFs are essentially a way to “port” print content such as books, magazines, or brochures into the digital realm. This made sense in 1993: Web-based content was still relatively new, and technology had flaws and limitations that PDFs circumvented. But we’ve had 23 years since then to figure out better ways to create digital content. And that means it’s time to let go of the PDF security blanket and embrace the brave new interactive world.

This software is available for free on the Mac App Store. You can create interactive eBooks using this tool for iPad, iPhone and Mac devices.

You can export your eBook in different file formats if you do not want to limit it to an Apple device. It gives you the option to export files in text, PDF, and ePUB format.
In the Brand House Book, Lindeback aims to make branding tangible by comparing it to building a house. He breaks it down into six manageable stages – dreaming, planning, starting work, designing, building and finally getting the details right – with a branding summary at the end of each stage, setting out all the important issues to think through in your brand building process.
If all of that code looks scary to you — don’t worry. Though it’s essential to know some basic HTML if you want to get under the hood of your ePub file, there are other ways to create ebooks. And I’ll be talking some more about what all of that gobbledygook actually is in coming months. (If you’d like to jumpstart that process, I highly recommend Liz Castro’s excellent introduction, ePub Straight to the Point. It’s a few years old, but still does an great job of covering the basics.)
Add these buttons to each page of your ebook -- either in the header or the footer -- so readers can easily share the book with their social networks no matter how far through it they've read. Just be sure you're sharing links to the ebook's landing page -- not thank-you page -- if it's gated content. HubSpot's ebooks, for example, include social sharing buttons for LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter on each page. For help in creating these social media buttons for your ebooks, check out this handy guide .
This ePub3 Creator Studio is the first such application that allows the author to insert and store media inside their storage folders and download other files into this storage for inserting into the eBooks. The videos will play instantly inside the eBook, and there is no need to embed YouTube videos with their intrusive “hacker ads.” Since your membership is an SSL protected storage location, the Embellisher will read all the video files you insert as if they are coming from a local server. This is the reason why eBooks created inside our studio are far superior to other creation software.

Unless a customer or prospect is reading a book on an eReader, they’re unlikely to read pages and pages of text online. Luckily, an interactive eBook can convey a rich, valuable story without needing 5000 words of copy. Using videos, images, GIFs, animations, and layers of information, you can fully convey your story without relying on tons of copy to deliver the narrative.
A proper title for this software would be Microsoft Word eBook Creator because that is the only input it will accept and its quite particular about what version of Microsoft Word the file was generated in before it will accept it. For it to live up to its name Of Ultimate...it should accept far more input. Microsoft Word is not the only word processor out there.

You can start creating your new eBook with one of the software packages listed above. All of them are pretty easy to use. If it is a text heavy book like fiction novels or biographies, then you might not have a chance to include a lot of interactivities, but otherwise you could really enhance your eBook by adding some multimedia features. Everyone enjoys a good book with compelling content, and if you could make your user’s reading experience even better by incorporating engaging interactivities, your readers might never put down their reading device.
