iPhone Apps for eBooks – Publishing Your eBook with an iPhone Application

For a new or aspiring author, finishing your book is only part of the battle. The biggest hurdle can be getting your book published and making some money from your creativity.

Think about publishing your book or eBook as an iPhone app and get paid for your work! It’s a great new way of publishing whether you’re an author and your book is already published or if you are an aspiring author looking for a publisher.

For publishers – consider making iPhone apps for your existing titles. iPhone apps allow your eBooks to be read both on the iPhone and the iPod Touch. A paid iPhone app adds another revenue stream to your publishing line, helping both your list of authors and your own bottom line. Not big enough to partner with Stanza? We can create your own eBook reader for you and incorporate it into your line of eBook iPhone applications.

For authors – iPhone apps for your eBooks can get your work published and on the paid marketplace without waiting for an established publisher to select your book. You as the author control the publication, the price, and the royalties. You get 70% of your book app’s sales price from the iTunes App Store, after Apple’s 30% cut. This means after Apple’s commission, you get ALL of the royalties.  And with the new iPhone 3.0 upgrade coming out later this year, you will even be able to offer your eBook apps on a subscription basis so you can charge more for adding content periodically!

iPhone apps for eBooks FAQ:

Q: Why should I invest in an iPhone app for my book instead of publishing an eBook for Kindle?

A:  You should do both! An author should monetize his or her book in as many ways as possible (unless you’re independently wealthy).

Q: What advantages does an iPhone app have over Kindle? Kindle publishing is free, and iPhone apps cost money!

A:  Your eBook as an iPhone app nets you 70% of the sale price vs. 35% from Kindle. Also, your eBook iPhone app can be upgraded or have added content at any time. You can even sell your publication by subscription with your iPhone app. Also, Apple has sold almost 40 million iPhone and iPod Touch units vs about 500,000 Amazon Kindles. Publishing your eBook with an iPhone app is a market you can’t ignore.

Q: Does an eBook published with an iPhone app also need a reader?

A:  Yes, your iPhone eBook application will need an eBook reader incorporated into the app. Your iPhone app developer can help you create your own eBook reader of may license their reader for your eBook application.

Q: Can’t I use the Kindle reader or Stanza reader for my own eBook iPhone application?

A:  No – Kindle and Stanza are not licensing their readers for use in individual iPhone apps. You or your publisher would need to have the publishing volume to make a special partnership to list your books with Amazon/Kindle/Stanza like the bigger publishing houses are doing.

Q: How much does it cost to turn my eBook into an iPhone app?

A:  The cost for your eBook iPhone app will depend on the number of pages in your eBook, any illustrations or pictures included in your eBook, and any added features you may need included. A basic cost for starters would be $2500.00 – but keep in mind that this is just a rough estimate and a starting point until your chosen developer can review your actual material and necessary requirements. And an app developer can offer volume disounts – the more eBook iPhone apps a developer creates for you, the lower the cost for each can be.

eBooks are the fastest growing segment in the iTunes App Store, ranking even higher than games! If you are an author looking to monetize your work then you should seriously consider creating iPhone apps for each book you already have on the market and each book you may have in the works.

What is a blogging site where people give a lot of quick feedback?

I like how I can ask questions on here and get pretty much instant feedback, however I kind of want to be able to just share my general thoughts and ideas and have people comment on them. Does anyone know of a blogging site that could offer me this luxury? Oh, and I don’t want anything where the people that comment on it are people that know me personally, like on tumblr or facebook or something.

Lafango is a great site for blogging… You can also post all of your other media to a virtual "stage" and interact with the rest of the community!

Hope this helps!

Good Morning NOLA!  In case you didn’t know it, it’s Friday!  Are you ready for the weekend? I am. Looks like a little warmer weather for us here in the Big Easy today.  everything is relative, right?  Partly cloudy but the good news is no rain yet so you can leave the umbrella at home.  Highs will make it into the fifties but you will still need your jacket.  I’m gearing up for a weekend with my grandbabies enjoying all of our  favorite NOLA eats, sights and sounds. Look out French Quarter here we come.  It will take more than a little cold weather to keep us in. I think candy apples and chargrilled oysters are just a couple of the things on the to-do list. Enjoy your day, I know I will! See you in NOLA!

Good Morning Nola!  I’ve got to get up and at ’em today.  Atleast the rain is moving out later today setting us up for from pretty days for the rest of our week.  We have a fifty percent chance of showers and drizzle this morning but should start to clear after lunch.  Most of the heavy stuff will be moving north of us.  Now the temps will be dropping with lows in or near the thirties for the next couple of nights.  I can handle that if the rain is gone.  I will be spending my day on a movie set, but atleast the scene being shot will be indoors.  Y’all have fun at whatever you have planned for your day.  I know I will.  be safe out there and I’ll see you in NOLA!
