Free Guide to Self-Publishing eBooks & iPad Apps Now Available

Press release from the issuing company

Quark announced today the availability of a new, free resource for self-publishers from graphic design expert and self-publisher Jay Nelson. Titled “Jay Nelson’s Guide to Self-Publishing,” the comprehensive guide outlines everything self-publishers need to know about getting digital projects, like ePubs and iPad apps, started and finished – without programming. The guide is free in ePub format or as a PDF and can be accessed here:

“I know from speaking with a broad community of designers, self-publishers, and authors that for many, understanding digital publishing seems like an awfully steep hill to climb, especially if they’ve been focused on print publishing,” said Nelson. “I wanted to create a complete guide that not only gives self-publishers a place to start, but options that are accessible, don’t require programming, and are affordable. I think readers will be relieved to know that it can be a very fun process that leverages tools they are already familiar with and that the costs involved can be managed if you take the right approach.”

With the guide to publishing eBooks and iPad apps, authors and designers working on digital magazines, books, journals, newsletters, and other publications will learn how to:

• Prepare projects properly with the right tools for success
• Create eBooks and get them to the Apple iBookstore
• Publish eMagazines and create iPad apps for the App Store
• Reach a break-even point on costs faster

The guide walks readers through the most popular formats currently in use for digital publications, how to convert or create those publications, and gives a breakdown of their costs. It also describes several ways to distribute and market digital publications. Register to receive it in ePub format or as a PDF here:

    Gave the information and I never got a link or email. Is this just to harvest email addresses?

      There seems to be a bug with non-US applicants. Are you in the US?

        Advise to check spam folder, retry if not there and contact them directly is problem persists

    Thanks! Obviously one shouldn’t complain about a free resource, but people should probably be aware that this book is more or less a digital commercial for QuarkXPress.

    People not using that will probably find their mileage varying heavily.

  5. Ok that’s great. Such a wonderful blog and sharing useful information. Ebooks take up less space. You practically don’t need any space to store them. You don’t need a library or a room for them. You can store hundreds and thousands of ebooks in your computer.
