If you’ve ever had the itch to write your own book, it’s never been easier than now!
There are two recent changes that are to your advantage:
- eBooks: Now that eBooks have become popular (and even preferred by many), you no longer have to worry about physically printing your books in order to sell them.
- Online stores: The other big change is that online stores like iBooks or Amazon.com allow independent authors to submit their books directly, without having to go through the hassle of making a book deal with a major publisher.
So this means to create and sell a book, all you have to do is create a file! And one of the best tools to create eBooks for the Apple iPad is iBooks Author.
In this iBooks Author tutorial, I’ll show you how to create a book in iBooks Author from scratch – complete with embedded video, interactive quizzes, and more. You’ll see how easy it is, and will be making your own book in no time!
Note: that to use iBooks Author, you’ll need a Macintosh computer running OSX 10.7.4 or later and if you’d like to do previewing, an iPad with iBooks 3.0 installed on it.
