Calling all authors: How to sell your books in the iBook store

Filed under: iBookHave you got a novel or two in your bottom desk drawer? Did you participate in the National Novel Writing Month competition last November? Are you a budding author who needs that last nudge to actually get writing? If any of these describe you, Apple has just given you a way to get your masterpiece into the iBooks store for the iPad, and you can do it yourself. You don't need a publisher, distributor, agent or anything else for that matter. You can decide how much to charge and which countries (that have an iBook store) to sell into. You also get the same deal as the app publishers, meaning that Apple takes 30% and you keep 70% of the revenue.

There are some requirements though but help is available.You'll need to have:

    ISBN numbers for the books you want to distribute
    the ability to deliver the book in EPUB format
    the book pass EpubCheck 1.0.5
    a US Tax ID (sorry world, this is only open to the US at this point)
    an iTunes account backed up by a credit card
    a fairly good idea of where you'll sell and how much you'll sell
    an Intel-based Mac running OS 10.5 or better (sorry PC users, their game, their rules) and meet some reasonable technical requirements
