 3- How to obtain an ISBN number:
===============================================================

Why would you need an ISBN number for your ebooks? In order to
sell your publication on Amazon.com you will need one. But you
need to publish your book in hard/soft shell first. Depending
on the layout, Graphics and paper source you are going to use
it can come costly. Then after you have publish it the
conventional way you can go and apply for your ISBN number
here online :
http://www.bowker.com/standards/home/isbn/us/application.html
or print out the form and post it.
Ebooks will have either an ISBN or similar code to be identified
in the future.

Major Issues in the Implementation of the ISBN:
PRINTING THE ISBN: When the number is either written or
printed, it must be preceded by the letters "ISBN" and
each part must be separated by a hyphen.

 5 - Merchant Accounts:
===============================================================

By now almost all or at least the majority of online users
have either heard or obtained a merchant account for processing
on-line orders for various products. It is a rather convenient
choice and in some instances " can cost more then you earn".
To open an merchant account at your local bank is a tedious
procedure and often you get turned down for reasons that might
be out of reach (for the moment).
That's where the on-line banks come into place, quick set-up,
low cost maintenance, and  a very attractive rate.

But how much are you really earning? By a rate of, will say,
7% and a additional fee of $1.50 per sale you are not earning
much if your product sales for around $10.00.

The "real" earner is the BANK. So, do the math and shop around
to get the best price.
Download some ebooks about merchant accounts here:
http://www.kdhbooks.com/ebooks/finance.htm
and make sure that "YOU" are getting the most return.


===============================================================
 6 - Ebook Publishing:

of how we read books.

 7 - e-interview
===============================================================

Michael Meanwell, interviewed by Kathryn Hardman

you can read the article on our website at:
http://www.kdhbooks.com/interview/michael_meanwell.htm

...............................................................

Kathryn:

After 20 years in the writers business, how do you feel
about ePublishing?


Michael:

In a word, re-born. It has re-invigorated me and, funnily enough,
taken me full circle to what I wanted to do
-- and started doing -- as a teenager. Writing books.

It's a little strange, however, being both the author and the
publisher. Now there's no barrier at all to being published
but, with that, goes a layer of responsibility to ensure
content is at the highest level.

Having started my career as a newspaper reporter and sub-editor,
I am used to editing my own copy, so it hasn't been too difficult
a transition.

When dealing with the traditional publishing world, many writers
invest a lot of time, submitting their work to publishers, then
play the waiting-game. While the rules are different with
epublishing, there is still a considerable investment needed
to be successful. When I finished my first ebook, I joked to
a colleague that writing it was the easy part -- and I right
(the hard part was learning and developing a workable ebook
format, building the Web site and launching an ongoing
marketing campaign).

And that's true, even for authors who are handled by a third-party
epublisher. Often, they will be responsible for not only providing
the ebook in a professional, published format, but also arranging
reviews, publicity and online marketing.

ePublishing is, however, an exciting, evolving industry.
It's a wonderful experience to be in complete control of your
e-destiny.

 8 - Microsoft Reader Format
===============================================================
Publish in Microsoft Reader (LIT) format. If you can not or
don't want to buy www.readerworks.com publisher ($69.00), then
you can download for free the ebook publisher software direct
from Microsoft.
Only two catches: Must have Word2000 and you can not change
the ebook cover. Other than that it works straight from
within Word2000.
If you consider to publish ebooks in 'LIT' in the future, then
take it for a test drive.
