David Kudler

Ebooks are arguably the most important format for independent publishers— since we sell so many more of them than we do print books.

Every month, our Q&A sessions field many questions about what ebooks are, how they’re made, and how they’re sold. And every month, ebook developer and BAIPA board member David Kudler answers as many of them as he can.

This month, we are devoting a complete day to David sharing what he knows about ebooks.

The Morning Session is entitled Ask David About Ebooks. He will give a brief introduction to what an ebook is and how they’re made. Then he will take your questions.

  1. Carol Sheldon says

    Most of us already know what ebooks are, and have used them. I wish the process of turning a print book ms into an ebook would be in the morning. Otherwise, I don’t know what my annual dues are for in this and other meetings that save the ‘meat’ until afternoon, when we have to pay for belonging to BAIPA a second time.

    • David Kudler says

      Carol, the discussion of “what is an ebook?” will take about 15 minutes. The rest of the hour will be taken up with specific member questions.

      In the afternoon, I’ll be walking through a hands-on process of converting an ms into an ePub ebook.

      I promise it will be a valuable day!
