The world is embracing the standard of PDF format for e-books. The costs for reproduction would be disk manuscript preparation (converting your hardcopy or disk files to PDF) plus disk reproduction. In many cases the disk manuscript preparation for a book sent to us on disk can be waived – email us for details. The PDF reader (Adobe Acrobat) is free to anyone and comes in many new computers standard. This allows anyone with a computer a chance to read your book on disk (after purchasing it from you!). The PDF format also allows you more control of the E-book that is purchased – you can make the book read only (the customer can not make changes) as well as restricting printing.
