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.
Not really a waste of time, the reviews are good and did make me aware of these ePub creators. I used to have one that worked on my PC, most of these new ones all work from a website.  I’m still looking for the one I used to have on my PC, it could accept word or pages docs and spat out several different ePub variations. But I can’t find it again, forgot what it was called even. Thanks for adding the links.
I have taught graphics and illustrating for a long time and until I used Book Creator with my students the process was always missing something. Book Creator has given us the tool to create and deliver professional content that is worth sharing with the world I am very proud of what my students create and how their work is displayed when it is finished.
Write: Once we’ve got a solid outline to work with, we flesh out each point with supporting text and ideas for graphics and videos. If we have something specific in mind, we’ll curate visual content from third-party sources; often times, we’ll work with our creative team to source or create visuals from scratch. We always try to keep text blocks short so our creative team has flexibility in how they visualize the content.
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).
Images and graphics in ebooks are hard to get right. The key to making them fit well is to think of them as complementary to your writing. Whether you add them during or after you’ve finished writing your ebook’s copy, your visuals should serve to highlight an important point you’re making or deconstruct the meaning of a concept in an easy-to-understand, visual way.
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.

Now initiate the process of conversion of the document and get it in the ePUB extension within minutes.

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).

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!
One Administrator can oversee publishers and collect fees for use of platform. Each assigned Publisher/author can create ePub3 books, price them, and upload them into the store using Stripe payment system. This is for the self-published author or teacher who wants to team-up with authors or teachers of the same genre or subject area/discipline. The licensee can run this business and collect royalties or fees as the Administrator/Owner. This installs on the server of the client with assistance of our technologist.

eBook creator are those software that makes the authors, writers and publishers enable to create their digital and eBooks. Having an eBook is more advantageous as compared to the traditional hard copies books because you can read these from any supporting devices and can share with others as well. These type of books are in digital form that contains the all formats like simple book like text, images, graphical data, table of content, etc. Moreover, some eBook creators enable their users to embed their multimedia files even in the eBook as well. The trend of reading and compiling eBooks is gradually increasing in the world because of the easiness and simplicity involved in this. One of the biggest advantages of eBook is that after creating the eBook, the users can publish his eBook on the top eBook selling platforms like Google Play Store, Kobo, Amazon’s Kindle, Apple’s iBooks, etc. Below is the list of those eBook creator and management software that will provide you the at least three functions of writing, designing and sharing. By using these below mentioned software, you can make eBooks as these should be. These will make you able to enjoy photo album creation, birthdays and anniversaries data book, cooking recipe database, cocktail recipe database, personal travel guide, personal dictionary/glossary, shopping list, simple generic database, personal wine database and much more.


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.
It’s worth noting how the software you choose stores your work. Does it save it to its server via the cloud, or do you download the software onto your computer? To use cloud software, you need a solid internet connection, so it is a good option if you plan to write at home or a cafe. On the other hand, if you write during your commute on the train, it may be better to find a program you can download. There are pros and cons to both, so consider your situation before making a decision.
A genius logo can be the jewel in the crown of any brand. Logo design is a crucial aspect of the process and one with which many designers are stumped. In this easy-to-understand textbook, you get a chance to get to grips with the basics when it comes to logo projects. It may not blow you away with new, innovative ideas, but it will give you the honest help and support you may be lacking right now.
The container.xml file serves one purpose: to tell the ereader where to look for the OPF file — that’s the one called content.opf here. That’s the heart of the ebook. It tells the ereader where to find all of the rest of the files in the ebook, what order to display them in, and what role each item serves (e.g. cover image, table of contents, etc.)
Read the BOOK CREATOR Getting Started tutorial, and then tap the "+" or New Book icon on the main screen. Choose a book shape and tap the "+" button to add photos, video, text, and sound to the cover page, first page, and so on. Swipe to move your content around the page, and resize or rotate it as desired. Under the "i" tab, find many options for adjusting or deleting items. Every time you want to add something, just tap "+" again. Tap Pages and Edit to reorder or delete pages. When the book is done, tap on the toolbar's send icon to read it in iBooks (iOS) or share it in another way.
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.
There are a huge number of factors that go into the cost of a conversion, from the state of the book (digitized? format?) to its complexity (footnotes/endnotes? tables? number of images? relationship of images to text? sidebars?) to any desired enhancements (audio/read-aloud? video? animation? scripting/widgets?) that giving a range of costs would be a bit meaningless.
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!
If you're considering making your ebook available for sale through ebook marketplaces like the Kindle Store, things get a little bit more complicated . You'll need to conform to the specific ebook format of that particular store, and you'll likely need to make chan ges to the style, design, and file of your ebook. In general, you'll need to modify your ebook to embody a very simple design with few visuals and limited formatting. Publishing services like Lulu.com can make this process more easily manageable. 

Visually intuitive interfaces are the future of web design. Make no mistakes about that. If you’re seeking to improve the way that you design websites, this little ebook is an ingenious place to start. The free text doesn’t just preach the rules of UI design to the reader; instead, it analyzes various examples from the online world. An excellent introduction to this somewhat tricky art.
Okay, so your title choice may not exactly be a design element, but choosing a title for any piece of content is definitely an art , and it shouldn't be overlooked. The title is often the first thing someone judges before deciding whether to click on or read your ebook, especially when the content gets shared in social media. Choose a title that is both interesting and descriptive -- that is, it should be indicative of what the reader will learn from reading the ebook.
Sqribble has been developed by Adeel Chowdhry, who is a well-known internet entrepreneur and best seller, with over ten years of experience and 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.

Depending on your business and industry, you likely have a different buyer personas , whether you segment your target audience by demographics, skill level, topic interest, or something else. So if part of your strategy is to create content that is personalized for or targeted to these different audience segments, one helpful way to organize and differentiate between your content assets is through a tagging system. Incorporate your schema in your ebook design so your readers know which particular ebooks will be of interest to them, and which ebooks won't. You can do this in a number of ways -- through iconography, color schemes, or tags.

Ebooks have some system of chapters and supporting images. Similar to a blog post, they also do well when further segmenting their text with subheaders that break down the discussion into specific sections. If you're writing about professional sports, for example, and one of your chapters is about Major League Baseball (MLB) in the U.S., you might want to establish subchapters about the various teams belonging to the MLB.

That same year, 2012, the final 3.01 version of ePub3 was approved by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF).  One of the best creations to come out of that new standard was the open source Readium Chrome eReader.  It was this invention that led to EMRE Publishing, LLC and our development of the Embellisher™ Mobile Creation, Publishing and Marketing System.  We have answered all of the criticisms made in Pontin’s article, so please allow me to go over them, one-at-a-time:
