What is an e-book?

 

An e-book is a full length book in a digital format, it usually consist of images and text that are readable on computers and other electronic devices.
A lot of physical books have been converted into electronic versions (e-books) including some of the classics so that they can then be read by electronic means.
Equally a lot of books have been written purely with the digital format in mind.

Worldwide there are over ten million Kindle users with the number increasing daily.
Kindle also provides a free downloadable Kindle app to enable your manuscript to reach virtually anyone with an iPad or android device.

E-books are usually priced lower than conventional printed books, plus there are industry standards which publishers tend to adhere to.
