Will e-publishing help Africa? - BBC Article

Hi All, I have just been sent a great article on eBooks and their affect within Africa. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-25141849

The article starts by acknowledging that Africa lags behind the rest of the world with the internet boom but that as a direct result of the increased use of smart phones and other smart devices we are experiencing a "boom" of our own!

It recognizes that the embracing of technology especially "Western technology" is still hindered by suspicion however progress is being made as African's warm up to eBooks and eBook related technology!

A Simplified Guide on Choosing the Right eBook Format

As somebody interested in having your work in eBook form and possibly sold or distributed online one of the technical questions you would need answered is "what format should I have my eBook converted into?"

This, at face value, might seem like a technical forest you need to explore but luckily the answer recently has really been greatly simplified by the natural evolution of the eBook format Standards and eReader devices themselves!

A basic Google search on the topic will throw back terms such as PDF and KF8 however the answer (from people who have actually had work published) will be that there are only 3 formats to really pay attention to. Assuming your written work is in either MS Word or Adobe InDesign or PDF (if there is no other choice!) there are really only a few portals where you would want to be selling your eBook. (internationally)

7 Reasons to Publish an eBook

7 Reasons to Publish an eBook

By Jim Wawro

 

Should you publish an ebook? Following the traditional publication of two print books, the self-publication of a third print book, and the publication of seven ebooks, here are seven reasons I recommend for publishing an ebook: 1. Ever since Gutenberg (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johannes_Gutenberg ), the publishing industry has effectively monopolized what books the world reads. Why? Producing printed books from written words requires capital and the expert knowledge of many businesses, including print manufacturing, book marketing, and distribution. However, this key intermediary between reader and writer is no longer exclusive.

Why eBooks Can Be Better

Some Background on the Major eBook Formats

In today's world there are eBooks have two major formats: EPUB and MOBI. EPUB is an open source format compatible with most eReading devices and software (Apple and Android Smartphones, PC, Mac, etc.) There are a wide variety of apps that are usually free to reading the EPUB format. Adobe Digital Editions works well for PC or Mac, iBooks is great for iPhones and iPads, and Moon+ Reader and Mantano Reader are decent Android apps. EPUB is also the format distributed by all vendors (Nook, Smashwords, Kobo, etc.) with the exception of Amazon, which leads us to… The MOBI format is owned by Amazon and is used for Amazon-type devices such as the Kindle eReader, Kindle Fire tablet, and apps. Even though it is a different format, it is very similar to the EPUB format. The best way to make a MOBI eBook is to start with an open source EPUB eBook and convert it using Amazon's proprietary program KindleGen.

 

eBooks are not Print Books

A common misconception among publishers and authors is that an eBook format should mimic its print cousin as closely as possible. This is often a recipe for disaster. The content of a print book is designed to be read in a fixed layout (e.g. a 5"x8" paperback). However, eBooks must be readable on a wide variety of devices: from a large PC monitor to a small smartphone. Therefore, the content of an eBook needs to be "reflowable" so that it can adjust to the size of the viewing screen that the reader is using. Things like complex tables, images placed next to text, and background images may cause problems on eBooks and create a poor reading experience if not handled properly.
