There are several ebook file formats to choose from; and there are even more software programs and hardware devices designed to download and view them. To keep things simple, PPG automatically produces an Adobe PDF/DRM ebook of all our authors’ paperback/hardcover books and makes it available for sale online through ecommerce sites such as KoboBooks.com and eBookMall.com, to name only two. (DRM stands for Digital Rights Management, which protects the copyright of the PDF ebook by preventing people from copying, printing, emailing, or sharing it with others free of charge.) The benefit of this ebook format is that we automatically produce it free of charge for the authors who publish paperbacks/hardcovers through us, and it is available for sale all around the world. The one notable limitation of this ebook format is that it isn’t available for download on ereader devices themselves. Your customers can only purchase it through websites for download on computer desktops.
For our authors who want their ebooks available in even more online markets and, more importantly, want them to be downloadable on ereaders and various other devices, our ebook file conversion service can convert their Adobe PDF/DRM ebook files into any number of different file formats: http://shop.polishedpublishinggroup.com/eBook-File-Conversions_c29.htm. I personally recommend the .EPUB format, in particular, for a couple of reasons:
- The KOBO-friendly .EPUB ebook is available for worldwide distribution on eReaders, Tablets, IOS, Android, Blackberry, Desktop, and Windows.
- Publishing an ebook through KOBO gives you 100% flexibility and personal choice regarding how you will set your own retail price (as opposed to publishing on Kindle which pretty much forces you to price your book at a ridiculously low price). If you are marketing your book using price-based marketing, you may consider Kindle; but, with KOBO you get to choose. You can market your book using value-based selling or price-based selling. It’s entirely your choice as the copyright owner of your book—as it should be!
