Benefits of E-book Publishing

We truly do live in the digital age. Our cameras are digital. We can store digital music files on our music players. And now, even our books have gone digital. E-books are electronic versions of printed books. They can be viewed across a number of mediums like laptops, mobile phones, and e-book readers. E-books make it much easier to take your favorite books and periodicals wherever you go. No more lugging around tote bags full of paperback books. No more hours spent at the library searching for the latest title on your book club’s reading list. You can now access millions of titles in the privacy of your own home. 

If you're thinking about self-publishing a book, e-book publishing is a great way to go. Digital publishing costs can be much lower than traditional book publishing costs. This process is even more affordable for authors and also makes it possible for them to get their works out to a much wider audience.

E-books are available in a variety of formats. One popular e-book format is the Portable Document File or PDF. This is a highly-compatible format and can be viewed on PCs, Macs or directly on the Web with Adobe Reader.  Another popular e-book format is EPub. This format is an open standard for e-books, and books with this format can be viewed on a number of e-reading devices. HTML e-books can only be viewed with computers or mobile devices that can connect to the Internet; and TXT e-book files are displayed in plain text and are very small in size.
