What are eBooks?
eBooks are electronic books and offer an alternative to reading from a printed paper book. There are a number of different types of eBook, and they can be read on a variety of different devices including computers, mobile phones and eBook readers. One of the main advantages is that they don’t require any storage space, unlike a paper book, so you can carry many books with you much more easily.
Now, many publishers make their books available in eBook format, which you can download from their website, or from online retailers. There are also a large number of self-published authors making their work available as an eBook as it is very affordable way of distributing their work.
How do I publish my work as an eBook format?
There are a variety of eBook formats such as PDF, ePub and Mobi. How easy it is to convert your work to an eBook format depends on the source and end formats. Some formats are easy to convert to – the most recent version of Microsoft Word, for example, has a ‘save to PDF’ option. However, some require more specialised software or the use of online services.
