What’s an e-Book?
An e-Book is a book that is distributed in digital form to be read on an electronic device such as a kindle, iPad or computer. An e-Book might also be available as a printed book. Many e-Books are solely text but they can include images, hyperlinks, etc.
All sorts of books are published as e-Books: classic works, niche interest books, reference and technical titles.
You can publish your book as a conventional printed book, as an e-Book, or both.
Why choose to publish your book as an e-Book?
✓ Low price: No printing and delivery costs, no stock
✓ Convenient: Readers can access their large library of books on the move
✓ Searchable: For guidebooks, technical and reference works readers can search within the book
✓ Availability: Can be found and downloaded 24/7, worldwide. Can also be made available for print-on-demand
✓ Speed: An e-Book can be published on the Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing site and made available within a day
An e-Book can be produced in different file formats such as .pdf, .epub and AZW formats. AZW is the Amazon Kindle file format.

I can’t fault the service First provided – they made it very simple and stress free! They were helpful at all times and very reliable. When I run out of books I will be looking to use them again to reprint. The e-book has been a hit – I’ve had some lovely reviews!
