If your product or service can be used in multiple ways, or it's hard to set up alone, dedicate a brief ebook to showing people how it's done. In the first section of your ebook, for example, explain how to launch your product or service. In the second section, break down the individual features and purposes your product is best used for.

The market for ebooks is huge; people have literally become millionaires by selling books in the Kindle format alone.  It’s a fun way to make money, too – you can decide what you’re going to write about, write it, publish it yourself on the Amazon site (or Barnes & Noble, or any one of a number of other sites) and you can decide for yourself how much you want to charge for the finished product.  Amazon puts a bit of pressure on you to price your books in the $2.99-$9.99 range, but aside from that, you can ask what you want.
Over 27 years experience providing complete contract publishing services, including editing, design, typesetting, printing and binding. Now offering ebook formatting (ePub, Nook, Kindle, etc.). 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. I can upload your book to your printer for you if you prefer. I can advise you if you would like to do the layout, setup, and uploading yourself.

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.

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.
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.
You'll notice we only have one "chapter page" in the template (slide three). To create additional chapter pages, or any pages really, simply right click the slide and choose Duplicate Slide. This will make a copy of your slide and allow you to drag it to its proper place in your ebook via the sidebar or Slide Sorter section of PowerPoint. You can then customize it for any subsequent chapters.
After searching the market for a professional and simple to use eBook software that will integrate with our LMS we ended up using Kotobee Author. Generating the eBook itself is effortless and the final product integrates smoothly with our LMS. Users have commented on the usability and the tools available within the book such as highlighting and notes taking which has significantly improved their learning experience.

Ideally, our free ebook templates would magically match your brand colors. But, they probably don't; this is where you get to truly personalize your work. However, because ebooks offer more real estate for color than your logo or website, it's a good idea to consider secondary colors within your brand's color palate. Ebooks are where this color scheme can truly shine.

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.

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.”

This allows you to insert any URL you want, and Sqribble will automatically pull the content from that page and insert into your book. It strips the html code and only inserts the text from the page. This is a great method because it saves a ton of time, and allows you to use expert content (with credits) so you can target topics and niches you’re not an expert in!

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. It has a lot of features which you can use to enhance your eBook, such as images, audio, videos, animations, 3D objects, mathematical expressions etc. It helps in creating an engaging and interactive eBook. 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.

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.

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.
5.  The value of keeping authors and readers happy.  The main problem of reading digital content, as we see at EMRE, is the fact that all those proprietors of information want you to be locked-in to their hardware, their software and their mobile systems in order to make the biggest profit.  What has resulted is more confusion and less happiness.  Not only have authors become less happy with the Amazon way of delivering their “babies,” their creative eBooks, the publishers who represent them have begun to sell directly to those same eReaders–bypassing the Amazonian experience completely.  We, too, are members of this rebellion.  We want to also make the creating and reading experience even simpler by keeping it inside one app and delivering all the content (even print) to keep the reader happy.
Also it wants a table of contents even if your book does not need it. And it is biased towards EPUB books not the more popular MOBI format. It is crash prone and extremely complex to try to use with a fairly high learning curve. It wants to duplicate the functions of a word processor as well as try to convert the file. All in all too elaborate of a program and not worth the bother. There are plenty of free alternatives out there on the internet to convert your eBook far more easily than this.

While interactive elements and graphics can enhance an ebook, the content itself must be compelling. Otherwise, all the other parts are just a glossy finish. Ebook examples that use compelling content will be able to grab the reader’s attention much easier. Turn your content into a narrative that makes it easy to follow. Fill your text with interesting facts that will get the reader to think. The more fascinating the content, the more likely the reader will want to share it with others—and that means even more people will be reading your material.
Iconic designer Massimo Vignelli, who sadly died in May after a long illness, didn’t just like to create good design: he was also passionate about sharing its principles, rules, and criteria so others could do the same. His landmark book The Vignelli Canon uses numerous examples to convey applications in practice from product design via signaletics and graphic design to corporate design. And best of all, in 2009, he made it available as a free PDF.

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.

I'm a seasoned professional with solid, practical expertise in writing, editing, content development, author services, print and electronic publications, public relations and media relations. While I'm flexible and enjoy variety in the work I accept, most of my work at present is with authors seeking to self-publish. I really enjoy helping them polish their work and bring their books into the world. I believe that every author has unique strengths and unique needs, so my goal is always to be flexible and find the best way of working with each particular author. I can provide editorial help at each stage of the process: developmental editing, line editing, copyediting, or proofreading. I can also provide formatting for both print and ebooks.
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.
EMRE Publishing has linked this studio with two courses (one free and one paid) for authors who are new to multimedia development in eBooks. Jim Musgrave wants to train authors in the creative use of his studio, so he has created the Basic Creative Writing Course, which authors can take online for free. The curriculum is aimed at developing the skills necessary to create multimedia content, and when the author is ready he/she may enroll in the Advanced Multimedia Development Course for a membership fee. This course has an accompanying eText, Running with the Big Dogs: A Creator’s Guide to Using Electronic Media. Jim created the course with the goal to train authors how to develop multi-sensory eBooks. Thousands of royalty-free media are included in this curriculum, so authors may invest in the development inside the studio with a lot less worry about cost.
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.
