Eric narrowly averted a career in food service when he began in tech publishing at Ziff-Davis over 25 years ago. He was on the founding staff of Windows Sources, FamilyPC, and Access Internet Magazine (all defunct, and it's not his fault). He's the author of two novels, BETA TEST ("an unusually lighthearted apocalyptic tale"--Publishers' Weekly) an... See Full Bio
EMRE Publishing is there for educational eBooks. These educational eBooks can be produced and sold for less than the price of a taco. This should appeal to teachers and students especially. As some publishers begin to charge $200 to $300 or more for individual enhanced eBooks (often to the diminishment of the tree-populations of the earth), eBook publishers can get by with under $10 per book and make valuable material more easily available through an Embellisher app in both iOS and Android formats. Those publishers who continue to charge high prices for eBooks can easily be undercut by enterprising, less profit-driven educators and entrepreneurs who use the Embellisher publishing system. Again, the open source code makes the studio much easier for academic titles to be circulated to students. Teachers will enjoy the instant “preload” feature that places a newly-created eBook directly on the student’s library interface as soon as it’s uploaded.
eBooks are not only the best platforms to keep yourself engaged digitally, but are also one of the best ways to pass on your content to a larger audience base. In today’s competitive world, it becomes imperative for the book authors or content marketers to create an eBook that appeals to the readers. While providing a free eBook of your content will help create a prospect list of clients, an elaborately prepared eBook in the meantime will also convince your customers of your prowess, knowledge and resources.
This software is available for free on the Mac App Store. You can create interactive eBooks using this tool for iPad, iPhone and Mac devices.

Publish to iBookstore, Smashwords and LULU the First Time! If you think publishing to Amazon is hard, wait till you try the other platforms! I have had so many customers tell me that UEC is probably the only software available that publishes to Apple's iBookstore, Smashwords.com and LULU.com the first time. You see UEC compiles 100% perfectly validated EPUB files, so no need to spend money on services that do this for you.
Packed dense on the home page like a news site more than a database of user instructions, User-Manuals.com also allows account creation, mostly because it has an e-commerce component, trying to sell you user manuals. While that means typically getting a perfect digital version—not just a scanned-in bunch of pages—it's pricey to pay $4.99 to $7.99 for a book you didn't think enough about to keep in the first place. Plus, I found none of my items in the listings here.
Get Your Book Accepted On Amazon KDP the First Time! Getting your eBooks accepted on Kindle, iBookStore, LuLu, Smashwords and Barnes & Noble is probably one of the most difficult tasks you will encounter. Don't believe me? Just do a simple Google search on say "iBookStore formatting" and you will read tons of blogs and stories about people struggling with the iBookStore. Here's the process. You upload your book using a service like lulu.com. Wait 3-4 weeks to get your eBook validated. If there is even one error, your eBook will be rejected! But here's the kicker. They DO NOT tell you ALL the errors at once. Then you fix that one error and submit again. Wait another 3 weeks to see if your eBook got accepted. This goes on and on until you fix all the eBook errors... PAINFUL!! Not with UEC though. I have so many UEC customers who email me back and say "Hey Nitin, my eBook got accepted the first time! And I only had to wait 4 hours!".

This site makes it clear up front you can upload manuals; there's also an easy-to-navigate manufacturers list right on the front page. The problem is, it threw a lot of errors during what should be simple searches. Narrowing things down using the listings by manufacturer helps, but takes longer, and still didn't lead to the products on my list. I found the scanner again, but that was it for specific matchups.
However, its format selection is a little bare-bones, and it wasn’t as easy to navigate as some other services we reviewed. In fact, we were overwhelmed as we sorted through the project options in the software. It doesn’t have formatting options for magazines or comic books, though you can make more traditional projects like picture books, novels and guides. Ultimate eBook Creator also includes photo rendering tools to make images look clear. The company has ties with publishers, so it’s easy to monetize your projects. Ultimate eBook Creator downloads to your computer, so you don’t need an internet connection to access it.
