kindlesE-reading is on the rise, of this there is absolutely no doubt, the far reaching capabilities of the internet has given the planet a resource unmatched at any time in our past, this resource is freely accessible across a wide range of connected devices meaning this vast chasm of information is available to us at pretty much anyplace, at any time. This is a platform that Publishers and businesses alike have embraced, it is estimated that over a quarter of all books sold in the US and the UK are now eBooks, for this reason we thought we would supply a little help to anyone out there who is planning to create an eBook or maybe for those of you who are unsure of where to start, today we will walk you through creating an eBook from start to finish and show you how easily it can be achieved and discuss the benefits they hold.

In a similar vein, in recent research by PEW it was found that over 50% of Americans now have a dedicated handheld device–either a tablet computer like an iPad, or an e-reader such as a Kindle or Nook–for reading e-content.

Ebooks are clearly a market which is enjoying considerable growth and one which demands the modern day publisher is involved in, factor in smartphones and other connected devices and you start to get a clear idea of just how influential these devices have become, eBooks are the very future of publishing itself.
