Getting to paper and on Amazon’s Kindle was a snap. To migrate the ebooks over to the Barnes & Noble Nook ereader required that I convert my content files to Epub. I did that by sending the PDF’s to New Delhi. Aptara, Inc. made short work of the conversion, and Barnes & Noble made it easy to add Mark Rollins Mysteries to their Nook store.
But I still wasn’t in Apple’s iBookstore, and I wanted my books to be available for the Apple iPad. Getting there wasn’t that easy. Everyone says just use Smashwords. But they didn’t accept Epub files. I attempted to deal directly with Apple, but they weren’t returning my calls. I guess as a publisher I was too small for them. Finally I decided to go through Ingram’s Lightning Source group as an iBook’s aggregator. Yes, they take a little off the top, but at this point I was looking for easy. It is finally a done deal.
