If you are looking for an effective way to get your published work across to a wide, target audience, consider putting the work into e-book format. Ebooks are easy-to-read, readily available and many of them are available for free. Readers can download the e-book and read content when it convenient, which is one of the most important reasons as to why e-books are popular.
E-books are quite popular now-a-days because they are priced lesser than printed books, since they do not have the usual overhead costs. They can be quickly downloaded and read from a PC or through mobile devices such as iPod or a PDA.
The process of publishing an e-book is fairly simple. You need to get the manuscript ready. The work you want to publish must be divided into chapters, must include a table of contents, index, and must be proof-read to ensure that there are no errors. E-books are set typically into word processing format, with a page format set to 6×9 inches or 5×7 inches. There must be a 1 to 1Â½ inches spacing on all sides of the e-book page and line spacing used must be set to double-space. It is best to use fonts with serifs such as Garamond or times New Roman for the content and san serifs font such as Verdana or Arial for the Heading.
Once your work is ready in word processing format with all necessary images, it should be converted into a PDF. You can publish details about the e-book in various directories and ezines. It can be uploaded to sites that allow free e-book publishing. None of the costs associated with regular book writing and publishing is present in the publication of an e-book. E-Books are available in various subjects such as art, education, health, science fiction, parenting, geography, medicine and much more. You can publish your work in the right category and market it to gain attention and response from target audience.
