Book publishing is one of my interest nowadays and incidentally our business receive enquiries from prospective readers for availability of ebooks.
What in the world is an eBook? Any content converted to a digital format and then viewed on an electronic device such as a computer, PDA, or eBook viewer (often called a “reader”).
From a publisher’s vantage point, detailing the form, designing and packaging of an ebook is important. And Writers understand the elements that make up a successful ebook.
E-book readers are becoming more common, and two of the most popular today are the Amazon Kindle and the Sony Reader line.
Unfortunately two different brands don’t read the same kinds of e-books unless bought from the store designed for the reader, e.g. Amazon’s Kindles Store, Sony’s Reader Store, Barnes and Noble Nook touch reader or Apple iBooks.
Many easy-to-use tools exists today for converting to e-books. For Kindle users, the Mobipocket Desktop is a choice. Amazon provides a conversion service which allow emailing to them the e-book and will convert and sent directly to your Kindle reader.
Calibre supports Amazon’s Kindle, Sony, and Nook and a large number of other reading devices.
