The ebook marketplace has settled down, and ebooks have found their niche. They won’t disappear; in fact, there’s a lot of work going on to make them better looking, better performing, and with more accessibility than their print counterparts. This 4-week webinar will address:
- What are ebooks, and how are they made? How are they like web pages?
- How do reading systems differ? Apple vs. Kindle and more.
- What does an editor need to keep in mind from her first look at a manuscript?
- How can production and copy editors add value to ebooks?
- Why are editorial, design, and production responsibilities as linked in digital publishing as they are in print?
- What do editors need to know to do ebook QA (quality assurance; aka proofreading)?
