Question: e-book and print

Hello.


If I use Apple as my e-book distributor can I still manufacture my own print books and sell them on my own?

Apple only has restrictions on the .iBooks format if you sell it for a fee.


You can distribute works you've created with iBooks Author on the web as a standalone purchase or subscription product or service. When you sell your book on the web, it must be in a non-.ibooks format. Examples of a non-.ibooks format include PDF and ePub. If you wish to sell your work in the .ibooks format, it may be sold only through the iBooks Store. When you provide a work for free, you can distribute it in any format (including .ibooks) through the iBooks Store or by other means.

Yes, printed books are not restricted in any way by Apple, no matter how you make them or what you charge.
