    just remember that there are rules you must abide by, including having a ISBN and it must meet certain epub standards. I can see a mini- market for someone that knows what they are doing helping others get published in this way.

    Good recommendation, I am just waiting for some budding authors to run into the pub formats standards problems and come on here asking how to get their stuff to pass. Just a matter of time now.

    What kind of suff are you publishing, should we keep an eye out for it?

    Hello

    I've tried the link posted but I get a message stating that: " Apple ID does not have permission to access ITunes Connect" .
    Wasn´t this supposed to be open to all?


    Best Regards

    Chris, thanks for the link. Great to-the-point instructions. I've been using Calibre & Sigil for some time now


    You're welcome!

    Another big oddity that throws an invalidation seems to be when an .epub document has embedded fonts. Apple doesn't support embedded fonts in iBooks .epub files. Just thought I would throw that in.

    I like SmashWords


    Smashwords earns their way by allowing authors to upload once and distribute through many ereaders all-at-once.

    follow up with you on EZePub.com


    We're all going through the same learning curve.

    Not now, anyway. You have to have a US tax ID to publish.

    International Taxpayers can arrange with the US Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to acquire a tax Identification number that may satisfy Apple's contract requirement to sell books. Visit the [IRS|http://www.irs.gov/businesses/small/international/index.html] International Taxpayer website to find out more.

    No guarantee that your situation can be worked out, but it should be worth a try.
