When I read the article in the Technology Review entitled “Why Publishers Don’t Like Apps,” it helped inspire me to start my business.  Besides being a Caltech guy, I truly believed apps could answer all the problems raised in this article written by the editor of the MIT magazine.  Like a lot of journalists, Mr. Pontin wasn’t really aware of the technology developed right under his proverbial “nose.”
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.
There is no other eReader that has an accompanying developer studio for members built right inside the app. Although iBook, Blurb and Inkling Habitat have developer software available online, their systems are fixed and proprietary, and they take a cut from the price of every book you sell through them. That may mean more profit for the company, but it’s not conducive to independents. EMRE Publishing’s President and CEO, Jim Musgrave, is an independent author and publisher, so he wants all independents to be able to use his eReader and accompanying ePub3 Creator Studio so they can collect 97% of the profits once their masterpiece is created and uploaded.
The topic of the first anthology is war.  The title of the anthology is WAR STORIES ACROSS THE UNIVERSE. The method of the artistry will be to create stories that have an element of speculation in each one.  Therefore, they will categorized as fiction, although we will be soliciting stories by authors who have experienced war, whether while in the military or as a civilian living in a war-torn country.  These stories can be in the genres of Science Fiction, Adventure, Mystery, Alternate History, and Fantasy.

Lucidpress provides a number of features that allow you to include interactive elements with your ebook. Embed a video with your ebook to provide a visual look at what you’re writing about. Include links within the text so people can follow them to learn more about the subject. This helps show readers that you have done your homework and want the audience to know more about it. Include scrolling text areas within your ebook to provide even more information.
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.

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.
You keep pushing through... "I'm so close" ... "It's just the design to go!" ... "It really shouldn't be this hard!?"  ... BUT what if this time, you didn’t have to go it alone? What if instead, you had an amazing designer and digital publishing expert by your side to create you a one-of-a-kind eBook design – from idea to design to finished product (aka: income) – without a hitch?
While interactive eBooks are much more dynamic, engaging, and trackable than PDF eBooks, they require a somewhat different approach when it comes to execution. At Ceros, we see a lot of content marketers using the same approach they follow when creating static content on their Ceros projects. This approach usually results in an interactive eBook that doesn’t fully take advantage of the platform’s capabilities.
My favorite projects are newsletters and brochures, from full color to simple black and white - each one is like a puzzle, but you get to be creative in how you solve it! I also have years of experience creating booklets, flyers, magazines and marketing materials, business packages (letterhead, envelopes, business cards) invitations and forms. Please take a look at my Portfolio to see samples.
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.
Smashwords actually prefers Word docs — and will allow you to download your converted file in ePub format after they’ve run it through their famous “Meat Grinder” conversion tool (it’s actually a customized version of the software at the heart of Calibre). Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing does a pretty good job of converting simple Word files. Kobo’s Writing Life and Barnes and Nobles’ Nook Press have online ebook editing tools.

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.
What does it take to build a great AR experience? That’s the question we asked ourselves when creating a new augmented reality app for MWC Barcelona (formerly Mobile World Congress). To celebrate Android’s annual Partner Walk scavenger hunt, we put an AR-spin on what’s become a beloved tradition. Rather than search for enamel pins as in years past, the app prompted attendees to roam the event collecting life-sized animated AR characters, further enhancing the experience and improving engagement.As you think about how AR can help you with your next design project, we wanted to share some things we learned from building this experience and watching people use it in the wild.Download the app to try it for yourself, and read on for our tips.1. Test your assumptionsA seemingly simple interaction of “scanning” a floor decal and looking up to see an entertaining 3D animation is surprisingly difficult. Breaking down this user interaction, it actually includes a lot of parts—like the physical design of the decal, all the 2D UI, and all the 3D AR elements. We discovered that people continued to look at the floor decal unless there were multiple AR elements, like an animated dotted line, to assist the user to pan their camera phone up.2. Make it usefulThe pin hunt gives attendees a goal to find all the partner booths in the cavernous halls of the MWC conference. As we thought about the AR companion to that experience, the problem became clear: How do we point the person to the next partner booth? This question is one that AR is uniquely equipped to solve. We took some lessons from Google Maps to help us design the scavenger hunt’s AR elements. We made each floor decal unique; scanning one would tell users where they are in the Android Partner Walk, and enable us to point them to uncollected pins nearby.3. Bring delightIt was awesome to see MWC attendees’ smiles and surprise when collecting their AR Android pins. These were people in business suits, roaming the show floor between meetings, engaged with a collection experience where they were willing to walk long distances to complete the challenge. We put a lot of care in developing the 21 fully-animated 3D scenes and were glad people enjoyed them.4. Be responsiveOne of our biggest worries was a user pointing their camera at the floor decal and it either 1) not triggering at all or 2) unresponsive for an unacceptable amount of time. Anything over two seconds starts to make users question whether they have done something wrong or whether the app is buggy—both are poor user experiences. Related to responsiveness, we also felt that these AR collection interactions should be short and sweet. We wanted the attendees to see a delightful Android, collect it, and quickly orient to the next booth to visit: all in under 30 seconds.5. Learn from your mistakesLike any project, once it’s in the wild, you realize some things should have been done differently. One lesson is that we should’ve made the floor decals much larger. When placed next to our office desks, they seemed huge, but when placed in the Fira Barcelona conference hall, they looked quite tiny. Lesson learned! For future projects, we’ll be sure to test physical elements onsite.You don’t have to have attended MWC to experience this app for yourself. Download it now on your ARCore-compatible device and play around with placing the animated AR pins anywhere you like.By design director Joshua To and designer Steve Toh of Google AR/VR

If you’re publishing an e-book, it’s obvious you’re a skilled writer, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other skilled writers out there. If you have a great online resource that you want to share with your followers, include an external hyperlink in your e-book. (Let that source know, too, and hopefully they’ll promo your content to their followers.)

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!
I was interested in the new BookShot eBooks that popular novelist James Patterson was publishing.  My Detective Pat O’Malley Series was also predicated on the fact that readers don’t have the time to read long books, so none of my titles runs much over 40,000 words.  The American Library Association liked my idea so much they published all of my series titles as “highlighted” novels throughout the libraries of the United States.  In most word-counting systems, a novel today comes in at a minimum of 40,000 words, so I wanted my books to be on the lighter side.  Patterson is now coming out with an even shorter eBook, so I wanted to see what he had to offer.
