Someone asked me if I could make them an ebook. I have a mac and I’m pretty good on computers so they thought I’d be a good fit. I said I need to check it out.
Did you know that real ebooks need ISBN numbers?
And did you know that you have to BUY the ISBN number?
I missed that memo somewhere.
Now, they do only run around $250 for 10. But still, I didn’t realize that making an e-book would actually cost money.
That being said, I found this nifty little guide out there. In short, they explain all the services out there for ebooks and ebook creation, who gives you ISBN numbers, how much you get, how long it takes, ect. I also found this article that explains the few common forms of ebooks, why PDFs and picture books are not the brightest idea in an epud format and how to make your own epub format.
In short, I think making an ebook would be terribly easy to do. I’m just surprised some that it actually costs money.
