Frequently Asked Questions

Please let us know if you have a question that's not answered here
  1. How much does it cost?
    You can sign up for free, and use the editor for as long as you want, without charge.

    Once your book is ready, it costs $19 to convert it into two types of eBook format files: epub and mobi (more details).

    There are no recurring fees, and you can download, redistribute, and sell as many copies of your eBook as you like.
  2. What if I need to make a change after I've paid?
    Once you have paid, you can make minor edits, including changing the cover image, and re-generate the ebook files as many times as you want.
  3. Do you offer a volume discount?
    Yes. If you intend to use eBookBurn to create more than ten eBooks per month, please let us know, and we can issue you a promotion code.
  4. Where can I sell my eBooks?
    Both Amazon.com and Apple's iBookstore offer self-publishing options (if you are interested in going this route, you should also read this).

    You can also just sell directly from your own blog or web site, and avoid the commission fees Amazon and Apple charge.
  5. Which file do I download, epub or mobi? Or do I need both?
    You should download both, in order to reach the broadest audience possible.

    The epub file works on the Apple iPad, Barnes & Noble Nook, Sony eReader, and most other devices.

    The mobi file works on the Amazon Kindle, Kindle DX, and Blackberry smart phones with the Mobipocket Reader app installed.
  6. What is the full list of epub devices?
    Other epub readers that we know about are: Kobo Reader, Bokeen Cybooks (Gen3, Opus, and Orizon), iRex Digital Readers (iLiad, DR800, and DR1000), PocketBook e-readers (models 301, 302, 360, 602, 902, and IQ), and Astak EZReader, though there might be others.
  7. Why is my browser being rejected?
    It is probably because you are using an out-of-date version or Internet Explorer, or both.

    Nostalgia aside, there are good reasons to be up-to-date. Please download and use the latest Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Opera browser instead, and make sure javascript is enabled.
  8. What are your terms and conditions?
    You can read the fine print here. Basically, as long as you don't use eBookBurn for anything illegal (such as pirating content), you should have no problems.
