IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM YOUR CHILDREN’S BOOK SERVICES ABOUT EBOOKS:
Today there are an endless variety of devices that are available for ebooks and new ones are coming out all the time. Some of the ebook devices do a better job at maintaining the look and feel of your book than others. We specifically work with Kindle for ebooks because their device provides the most consistent and best platform for enjoying your book as it was intended to be enjoyed. They work with the other major ebook devices and support them with free apps, so you don't have to own a Kindle to purchase and read your book. Your customers can now read their Kindle books on iPADs, iphones, MAC and PC computers and Blackberry's as well as Android and Windows Phone 7. It opens a world of possibilities.
Also authors need to keep in mind that ebook readers are smaller than most printed children's books, and they have more technical limitations. The devices have a smaller area to view the book, so books with larger amounts of text per page will be harder to read than books with a larger font sizes and fewer words. Not every children's book will work as well as a digital book as it will as a print book, so it's important to evaluate whether your title will be a good fit for the ebook package.
