If you write children’s books, then consider the Kindle Kids Book Creator, which is a specific tool for image-heavy children’s books. Check out this interview on the tool and also this interview with Karen Inglis on all aspects of children’s publishing. You can also check out iBooks Author, which can be used for children’s books on the iPad as well as textbooks with enhanced video and images.

2. Designer’s cost varies depending on what you want. You don’t have to pay an extravagant price. Also note, the cover doesn’t have to be extravagant. It has to be clear. Simple. Attractive. Sends the right message about what your book is going to be about. I would recommend a dear friend of mine who is both fair in pricing and excellent in her work. Her website is http://doublestopdesign.com/
The prefix “wiki” has perhaps already gotten your interest peaked. While Wikibooks doesn’t really have anything to do with Wikipedia, it does have a large database of books under its umbrella for you to enjoy. What’s unique about this source is that you can get e-books in several languages including Dutch, English, Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Polish. You first have to pick a language and then type in the title you’re trying to find.
Ok, now we come to the main topic. I am providing you here with direct links to the section on these torrent websites where you can search, browser, explore more for getting free ebooks of your choice. All the below mentioned torrent downloading websites are great torrent files portals and they all are among the most popular and reliable torrent downloading websites.
If you can’t hire an editor, use your resources (friends, mentors, coworkers, blogger/writer friends, etc). A lot of my editing in my last book was a lot of teamwork and open brainstorming/openly editing. I was also fortunate to have a friend with great editorial skills, but mainly it helps to have a fresh pair of eyes read over your work (and usually being right next to them to hear what they read).
A million thanks for the article and all the commenting. There is enough in here to keep me reading and researching for a month (when I have the time.) Right now I’m looking for information for a friend who’s nearly finished writing and illustrating her book, but is no more computer savvy than I am, and as I read all this, I realize I’m going to have to scramble up a steep learning curve to understand Kindle publishing and so much else.

I’ve only published short documents (crochet patterns) on the Kindle Platform, but really want to write and publish an ebook. This article will help get me started. I also need to look into the Kindle Select program more deeply. I remember when it was announced, but didn’t pay too much attention to it because I didn’t want to give my patterns away for free. But 5 free days over a 90-day period isn’t bad at all, and the potential to earn via the lending library has really got me interested. Thanks for sharing.
Manybooks has hands down, one of the best user interfaces and design in the microcosm of e-book torrent sites. You can easily navigate through the site using categories/filters like Genres, Titles, Authors, Language, Popular, Featured Authors, and Recommended. Some of the sub-genres on the site are Action/Adventure, Biographies, Children’s, Literary Fiction, Romance, Paranormal, Young Adult, and Non-Fiction. As of today, the site hosts over 33,000 free e-book titles. If you’re a writer yourself, you can even use their platform to promote your book.
Here are the three big questions to bear in mind with e-book creation: first, what is the easiest and most cost-efficient way to produce an e-book? Second, where will it be distributed? And third, how much of a cut do you get? With those in mind, let's take a look at some of the more high-profile options available currently. I'm limiting it to these options because I want to keep this as simple as possible.
With more than 90 categories of books in its library, this site has been dedicatedly built for eBooks and this is the site, wherein, you can expect to find the books of your choice, covering all the probable genres. This registration process takes the minimum time, and you need not pay a penny to complete the formalities in this regard. It is a free ebook torrent site. Once done, you are just a click away from finding the massive collection of books as per your choice.
Not enough specifics. I’ve learned that writers need to be told very specifically, exactly how you do something. For instance, one I got recently: “If I’m contacting a charity about doing a pro bono sample, what exactly should I say to not seem desperate?” You can bet the next version of this material will have a lot more granular detail and answers to these nitty-gritty questions.
Sure, you can be a cheapskate and get a stock photo for your cover, you can write your own book description, with some dose of luck you can even format it properly, but the biggest issue with self-publishing so-called writers is that they still believe showing your script to a beta reader (or two, or ten) solves the problem. It doesn’t. That’s why self-publishers are still loathed, because they produce content of absolutely no quality. Even Sturgeon’s law is a huge underestimation here.
Kobo claims to offer one of the world’s largest e-bookstores, with nearly four million titles available across 68 languages and 190 countries. Kobo Writing Life offers a user-friendly, five-step process for uploading e-books, and the company will convert your manuscript into an e-pub file for free with no additional cost to the author. Kobo has recently simplified its royalty structure, offering authors 70% of the list price on books priced $2.99 and higher with no cap. Royalties are 45% for books priced between 99 cents and $2.98, and authors can also choose to offer their e-books for free. Unique to Kobo is its partnership with the American Booksellers Association, which means thousands of independent bookstores make Kobo e-books available for purchase on their Web sites, helping enhance discoverability. Kobo also sponsors author events at independent bookstores
1. I don’t know how much it would exactly cost. I paid roughly $100 to the company that I mentioned, 52novels, and they formatted the eBook for me in both Amazon format and ePub. With that, you can publish very easily. You fill in all the data about your book, the keywords, title, etc., and then you simply upload the file you were given. Then you set the pricing. Then you’re finished. Maybe try the website smashwords; I’m not too familiar with them but I know they have a service that helps you upload your eBook to various places.

Free-ebooks is one among the most famous torrent sites for books, as it offers you the advantage of reading your favorite eBook in PDF format. there is a wide genre of book collection within this site. You can pick anything between mystery, fiction, non-fiction, technology, youth, drama etc. one drawback of this application is, you must register on their site to be able to download a desired ebook torrent.
Now, after being greatly upset by the above post, we after all are just myself, my wife and a couple of writer friends trying to do something new and different, I decided to do some searching on the net and found a site closely related to our name (zippyshare) which DOES have quite a shady reputation as both spammer and illegal downloader, but I want to make the readers here at Library Thing aware that those folks have NOTHING to do with us. (I picked HotZippy because I thought it had a cute sounding name like Google or Kobo etc and probably should have looked a little more closely, though I never anticipated something such as this happening to us.)
