How to Publish Electronic BooksLike one publishes electronic books
Role of e-books in the transformation of the publishing industry
It explores the effects of e-books and e-commerce on the present and prospective development of the publishing sector by targeting different stakeholders: writers, publishing houses, on-line and conventional distribution companies and consumers. Bookshops are affected, as their clients are shopping more and more often on-line, for both normal and electronic books.
It also transforms the publisher-author relation, as authors can now publish their works directly on a publisher's website. While print books are likely to remain, publishing houses and bookshops need to examine the evolving tastes of their targeted markets and rethink the way they create and distribute contents to their clients.

Part 1: Hard Copy vs. Ebook - How to publish an Ebook Series
Remark: For my latest advices for buying and publishing your e-books, please read my guideline e-books The Smart Way (Editor's Grade 09/2015). Okay, so I was talking about revenue, I was talking about sales and customer relations - but I wasn't really thinking about how I was going to create my eBook. While I hadn't intended to create a script, after a few "OMG, your website is so useful, you should create a script" commentaries, I thought I might as well try.
When I decided to start writing the textbook, the choice was whether it should be a print or an electronic one. EXPENSITIVE CONS: more costly to produce, publishing charges, print copy, dispatch to clients, the ability to have not enough books for the number of clients (backorders), the ability to have too many books and no orders (oversupply), storage area, only part of the selling cost is a gain, once it is published, it is really difficult to re-publish a revised version.
It is simpler to make, can streamline the supply chain, does not have to be concerned about excess supply or repeat orders, does not have to be present to make a purchase, all purchases are 100% profitable (no printing companies or publishing houses to pay), simple to give free copy to your customers for review and presents at no charge, simple to fix bugs and update.
It is more difficult to get an eBook, to buy it, to "pirate" (security), more difficult to see on the monitor, less contentment because it is electronic and not a "real" one. However, I continued my research and ALMOST decided on a print services provider. As I learned about on-demand pressure, I vowed I would take this approach for my student advisor.
But I found a ministry on LuLu.com, and it seemed very auspicious. You publish your own books, send them in PDF or Adobe Illustrator formats, and then create a store. LuLu prints it "on-demand" in a desired volume and envelope style when someone comes into your store and buys your work.
This is a screen shot of the LuLu.com computer, which corresponds to the file name of the eBook I used. That'?s what it would take for one copy of the volume. Notice that the pages are front and back, so the number of pages here is actually 186 (My guideline is about this big).
There are no specific LuLu service, such as creating a design sleeve, edit an ISBN number, etc. $9.20 goes to LuLu.com for every single eBook I am sellin'. I' m gonna make a little money on my asking money. 100 prize for each work. What seems to be the problem with this one? There' s nothing amiss with the on-demand version, but there are a few things I liked better when I sold an electronic product from my own website:
So I ordered some samples books from LuLu.com (some fictional tales and a jigsaw-puzzlebook) and the qualtity was just fine. I also did some research on the PDF (or AI format) for converting hardcopy books, and it took a while to make sure all adjustments are accurate to get the right endoproduct.
It was not too exciting for me to set up a shop window on LuLu.com to be able to market my work. That means that my site takes them to a page on LuLu.com where the "Buy" tab is and I probably wouldn't be able to do much customizing. Through the sale of an electronic copy of my site, the prospective client will feel like they are getting interested with my site with fewer stages (the Buy Now is on my site).
Keep in mind that the fewer moves there are between a customer's interest in your products and the purchasing side, the smaller the chances for the customers to go (aka. bounce). And the electronic books I wanted to set up also handled all of my purchases and shipments and I can keep almost 100% of the selling prices for the profits.
So for every $29. 95 product I sale, I get to put $29. 95 in my bag (less than a buck for fees). About a hundred books, that makes a whole bunch of cash. All in all I bought about 3000 books, so if I had gone on-demand I would have "lost" $27,600 (since my books are actually selling for $29.95).
The next article will be about how exactly I have made a definitive eBook item for purchase. Once you have your brainchild, the first thing to do is just write in your favourite text processor program (like Word) as I did! Learn more about my eBook trip to success....have fun!
