Looking for almost anything regarding publication of an e-book. Thanks, Allan

Allan,
You can get a free ISBN. Get one for an ebook.

Do the National library of Canada paperwork do that the book is available to future generations.

You could go with a simple PFD file or a dedicated ebook file type.

If you want people to have it or want to sell it then that’s another step.

You could sell/distribute yourself.
You could look into getting it listed at places like Apple’s iTunes, Kindle, etc.

The big one of course is Amazon for Kindle. As I understand it the publishing is basically free, and you make money off of sales. There are rules around pricing, but there are lots of books available free, as special offers by authors who want you to buy their next book. Customers can buy the e-book or have it printed if they really want to.

Kinguq.
