Course Description

Building an ebook with the standard epub format is not as complex as you might think. The process involves some technical steps, but with some self discipline and following the clear steps on this course, I am pretty sure you will be able to reach the goal and build your own ebook from scratch.

The course will take you around 2-3 hours to complete. A great investment of time, as you will add a new skill to your tool belt.

Including all the business opportunities related to it. From a writter being able to create her own ebook and sell it in Amazon or iTunes, to a designer or web developer being able to offer it as a new service to his clients.

You could also use this new skill for your personal sake, sharing your new ebook with your family and friends, so they can read your new novel or cookbook with the convenience of their iPads or Kindles.

Instructor Biography

Guille Lopez, Developer & Designer

I am a web developer and designer from Barcelona currently working in San Francisco. I have experience of 10+ years doing web design and development. I am a partner as well in a small publishing house, devoted to business and economic books, and for the last 8 years we have been building and publishing ebooks that sell through Amazon and iTunes. As the CTO of the company I have full experience with this new publishing format, and the best ways to handle it so readers and distribution platforms can take the most of it.
