Authors who choose to develop their titles with the EMRE ePub3 Creator Studio will always have a professionaldeveloper close by to assist them with technical problems. Jim Musgrave prides himself on the fact that he has trained his developers to know what authors want and need to be creative, and the result is in the professional support authors receive when they enroll in the membership. Since the first month’s membership is free, authors can see if they like the tools before they begin to design work.
This file type stands for "Electronic Publication," and is the more flexible ebook formats. By that, I mean EPUB ebooks can "reflow" their text to adapt to various mobile devices and tablets, allowing the ebook's text to move on and off different pages based on the size of the device on which a user is reading the ebook. They're particularly helpful for viewing on smaller screens, such as smartphones as well as the Nook from Barnes and Noble.
This ePub3 Creator Studio is the only application that allows authors to create music playlists right inside their eBook. Jim was using Booktrack.com to create online eBooks with sound effects, and he wanted to include this dynamic inside his studio for authors to use. The result is this cool method of inserting the choice of songs or audiobook reads right inside your eBook. The reader simply has to click on the handy “music note” icon inside the Embellisher eReader, and the playlist appears. The only disadvantage Jim saw at Booktrack was that the reader was forced to listen to sound. Therefore, the resulting Playlist Creator Tool allows the reader to choose if he/she wishes to listen to the selections. You can see a sample of how the result of this tool looks inside the sample for the Family Love Time Capsule. (Note: you must first register to use the eReader.)
