What is an eBook?
An eBook is a digital (or electronic) version of a book which can be read on a computer, tablet,
smart phone or handheld eReader device or app. An eBook has dynamic, reflowable content which allows
the reader to tap, or click, to continue reading the properly formatted text no matter what size of
screen they are using--and images automatically resize to fit the viewer's screen.
With eBooks, readers can take hundreds of books on the go with them without taking up any space or
weighing them down!
Why do I need an eBook?
eBooks are the fastest way to self-publish a book. If you've already published a print edition of
your book (paperback/hardback) eBooks allow you to expand your audience and reach readers wherever
eBooks allow people with visual impairments to access books which otherwise would be unreadable for
them (since they can increase the font size until they are able to read the text).
Where will my eBook be sold?
Online retail bookstores like Amazon (in the Kindle Store), Barnes & Noble (in the NOOK store),
Apple (in Apple Books), in the Google Play store and hundreds of other eBook retailers will have the
opportunity to sell your eBook.
