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.”

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.)
If you make sales, great.  You give up a small commission, but you earn the bulk of the price in profit and you don’t even get charged for having your books stored on Amazon’s site.  Ebook publishing is a great way to make money if you like to write, but there’s a huge problem – formatting your content properly to meet Kindle guidelines is really hard.
This is another interactive eBook creator. The interesting part about this software is that it gives the flipping page effect when you turn to the next page in your eBook. This flip effect comes as an interesting change when compared to normal eBooks. You can add multimedia elements to your eBook files. It allows you to convert PDFs into suitable eBook files for whichever eReader you want. The eBooks can be accessed from any system and platform. You would have to download this software on your Windows, iOS or Android system before using it.
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).

Just click on “Add Word files” to choose an MS Word document from your computer as well as select an output directory to save your converted eBook. So initiate the converting process and get an ePub output file in no time. The progress bar of the program displays the completion of the task.

Sigil is an advanced Ebook creator utility that offers comprehensive options and configuration settings. Sigil has a user-friendly interface and offers support for XHTML, HTML, image, TXT, and video files. The split viewing mode of Sigil facilitates you to view the code and design side by side, an option mostly present in complex and paid programs. When putting together new ebooks, you have the option to design the covers, span text into multiple files by taking into account the position of a cursor or after putting markers, edit basic metadata along with role properties, as well as create a table of contents or edit the existing one. The program keeps track of all text copied to the Clipboard, save it to the history and facilitates you to paste any preferred clip. Plus, you can run complex searches with advanced files, replace keywords, as well as save searches to run them again at a later time. It contains a spellchecker and provides you the option to validate ePub and CSS styles using online services.

After searching far and wide many months for an editor/publisher for ebooks to assist me in self-publishing a hard copy print book (2005) that is updated, modified and adjusted to run smoothly on a fully digital format, I discovered Kotobee in Sept 2015. Over the past 5 months, we have collaborated closely to generate a stunning, highly interactive and fun ebook to teach Youth about money and healthy habits of money management. I commend Kotobee for its professionalism and reliable efforts in support of iwealth.org‘s pioneering program for teaching Financial Intelligence and Literacy to Youth ages 11-18.
Mobipocket Creator is another versatile eBook creator. This eBook maker is available absolutely for free. The user Interface is quite easy to understand and operate. You can either build an eBook from scratch, or you can  import already written contents. The accepted input formats are HTML, DOCX, TXT, and PDF. After the import is complete, you can add Cover Image, Table of contents, and Metadata to the eBook. Add the eBook title, author, Publisher, description, publishing date, etc to the eBook in the Metadata section. Click on the Build button, which is located on top of the application, to start the conversion of your eBook. Your eBook will be exported in PRC or PRCX format. You can also publish your eBook directly from the software, or manage your online publication. This is also a prominent eBook editor.
Sigil is a free, open-source application that will allow you to import and edit ebooks in .TXT, .HTML and .EPUB format, and only convert them to .EPUB format for export. Sigil has a number of nice functions that make editing much easier, like exploit audio, video, images within your eBook and tweak words by superscript, subscript, strikethrough, tables, lists, hyperlinks etc. Although there are ebook editors out there with more functions, not all of them are this pleasant to use. If you are happy with a basic range of features for your epub editor, Sigil is the one for you. But we have to admit that Sigil's only disadvantage is that it can't support many formats.
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.
I can convert, format, and layout your book as an eBook or print edition. I use html/css coding to create all eBooks. I don't use any auto conversion software. I have formatted many books for Amazon/Kindle (mobi file), Apple/iBooks, Barnes & Noble/Nook, Kobo, Google Play, and anywhere else that accepts ePub files. I am also familiar with Smashwords and can create both a Word doc and ePub file for their distribution channels. I have created print editions for many print on demand sites, such as CreateSpace, IngramSpark/Lightening Source, Lulu, and Amazon's paperback printing via KDP (currently in Beta). I use Adobe InDesign to create a PDF file that will comply with all requirements from these sites.
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.
While my example has a few chapters, keep in mind that your ebook does not need to be lengthy. I have one golden rule for ebook length: Write what is needed to effectively educate your audience about your selected topic. If that requires five pages, great! If that requires 30 pages, so be it. Just don't waste words thinking you need to write a long ebook.
We’re gearing up for the Book Expo America, 2016 in May.  That means we’ll be running some specials, and we’re also streamlining our unique platform for our new clientele.  As a result, there will be three types of Embellisher™ Mobile Publishing Platform installations available to self-published authors, teachers, and large publishers/distributors of eBooks.  Our clients will be able to download the complete installation and follow the directions included.  They will also have the excellent technical assistance of our developer, Bas Van Stein, who will also be working with clients to “brand” the installation to the owner’s “look and feel.”  Once licensed, the platform can be up and open for business in 24 hours.  Here’s a brief description of the three installations that will be available for download:

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.
What was most impressive about this application was the way it was easily accessible by both the reader and the creator. The creator can use the handy tutorials provided in the editing platform to learn the different features. The readers can be instantly made aware of new preorder books available in print and digital versions, and their reader interests are kept in a unique database so the creator simply assigns the category of the book and it will be featured automatically in the reader’s library.
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.
