Reading the Fine Print: Considering Different eBook Publishing Options for the iBookstore
Jul 28, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes
Some good analysis by Wesley Fryer on different eBook publishing options. To publish on Apple's iTunes you need an iConnect account and can work with one of five publishers: Lulu, LibreDigital, Smashwords, INscribe Digital and Ingram Digital. Not all provide the same services; only Ingram and LibreDigital, for example, provide multimedia eBooks. And they charge very different rates; not surprisingly LibreDigital costs a lot more than Lulu. Apple, of course, gets 30 percent. There's also "standard eBook" publishing on Kindle Direct Publishing and PubIt! by Barnes and Noble. So what do you think - should I commit some of my finely hones thoughts to the world of commercial eBook publishing?
