Introduction to iBooks Author Templates

resources and tutorials for apple ibooks

Hello readers and welcome to the iBooks Author Templates Blog!

We created this site because we want to help authors like you become published. We know that one of the biggest pain points in the publishing process is design and delivery of your creation, which is why we do what we do.

Don’t get us wrong, content is king and always will be. Without great content, it doesn’t matter what you dress it up in, people won’t want it. But you probably also know that human beings have a tendency to “judge a book by it’s cover.” You can write the greatest story in the world, but if you present it in a way that doesn’t grab your reader…you’ve lost them! Your message was not delivered.

So how do you engage readers? Simple. Design.

Engaging design is such a powerful tool. When you give your readers something they can engage with, your content becomes more than written words or images on a page. Engaging design offers the reader an experience, something they can connect with rather than just passively consume. And isn’t that the goal? We think it is.

Since we’ve launched, we have helped hundreds of aspiring authors become published. Along the way we’ve learned a lot about Apple’s new iBooks Author Application and the challenges authors face when self-publishing their work. This blog is where we will share all our juicy findings along with our tips, tricks, and best practices for design. We are also going to be featuring selected authors and their work so be sure to drop us a line when you publish! This is a great opportunity for you to spread the word about your amazing creation (we’ve seen some incredible stuff already).

We’re on the brink of a new era in publishing…go ahead, start singing “video killed the radio star.” We’re excited to be able to bring you the latest from the front and look forward to helping you on your journey as an author.

Be the first to get all these updates (and a few exclusives) by subscribing to our blog. We promise, you won’t be disappointed. Go ahead, subscribe now and see what’s waiting for you!

Here’s to publishing on your own terms,
