Hallo everyone! default_smile.png Given that i am rather unexperienced in the E-book topic. I was wondering, apart from PDF what are some other fantastic options that you yourselves have used and could maybe recommend? I have read quite a number of options but i would like to hear a few personal recommendations.

Since establishing the company in 2012, we have published ten books, including short stories by several AQC writers and debut novels by AQC authors A.T. O'Connor (aka Cat Woods), "ScubaSteve" Carman, and R.S. Mellette. Heading into 2016, we're aiming to publish at least two books, including the second Mellette novel and an anthology. In 2015, I saw a few memoir/nonfiction pieces published in Red Fez. I expect to do more of that in 2016 and beyond, while also looking to add freelance editing and writing clients.

epub and mobi are the most common, I believe. You want at least to include what most e-readers can read.

Thank you. The EPUB format seems to be highly ranked, especially if you are most likely to sell on platforms like Kindle and iBookstore. Given that i was highly interested to learn more about this topic, i ended up discovering that there are dozens of 3rd party softwares. I found some great information on this simple guide that i stumbled upon today. It might be worthwhile checking out.
