如何出版你的出版品上傳至Apple iBookstore?iBookstore 的6個上架流程

前提:目前 iBookstore 的出版也只能在 Mac 上面完成,因此必須有安裝了 OS X 10.5 以上版本的 Mac[1]

流程整理如下:

  1. 書籍的檔案格式必須是 EPUB[2]
  2. 書籍必須具備 ISBN 國際標準書號(ISBN 申請方式其實很簡單,不知道可留言詢問[3]
  3. 要上傳的檔案必須通過 EpubCheck 軟體檢查[4]
  4. 蘋果推出的iBookstor ,主要針對的是在美國的出版者,因為目前 iBookstore 要求出版者必須具有美國的 Tax ID 或社會安全碼
  5. 完成品放入 iTunes 同步進行測試,確認是否在 iBooks 軟體中有理想的效果。
  6. 申請帳號:到 蘋果網站中的專屬頁面 填寫表格、設定帳號,並且下載專用的上傳軟體將書籍上傳。最後,等待書籍在 iBookstore 中上架、販售。

#目前 iBookstore 的拆帳比例為 70/30,也就是出版者則可以得到 70% 的營業額,與 App Store 相同。

[1]  MAC 是 Macintosh(麥金塔)的簡稱,是由 Apple(蘋果電腦,就是做 iPod 的公司喔)所製造的電腦,搭載的是 Mac OS 作業系統。

[2] 電子書目前最普遍的格式 EPUB,市面上也有許多各種不同的 EPUB 轉換軟體 !當中,Calibre 這套跨平台的電子書管理兼轉換工具,能將檔案轉換成標準的 EPUB 規格。

[3] 只需要到【台灣國際標準書號的網站】下載表單,依照表單上的步驟辦理申請即可。通常傳真寄出或對方收到後,可能兩三天就可以收到ISBN,但作業繁忙時可能需要一周的等待時間 

[4]  確認文件中是否有任何的轉換錯誤、或者是不符合標準的 EPUB 格式

Can I upload the chinese edition books on iBooks? 

Rely: Chinese books have to be in epub3 format, which iBooks Author cannot produce.  So you would have to use some other app.  See http://m10lmac.blogspot.com/2012/10/ibookstore-adds-language-support.html

Life can be beautiful without perfection. There’s a strong link between unconditional love and posttraumatic growth. In truth, people can only witness unconditional love in hard times. If you believe in luck or miracles, be aware of the seven deadly sins and the power of tenderness. According to the Bible, no one will be exempt from life challenges, including the chosen ones (1 Peter 1:3-9). God expects us to stay hopeful and “rejoice in our sufferings,” because “trials of various kinds” are training to make us “perfect and complete” (Romans 5:3-6, James 1:1-27). It’s comforting to know that “God promises to make something good out of the storm” (Roman 8: 28). We fall and we learn. As we learn to humble ourselves, life gets better. The connection between the brain and stomach is bidirectional. Excessive sugar intake and chronic stress sabotage our immune system that 70% to 80% of our immunity hinges on our gut health. Memory loss and cognitive impairment are common symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, all of which are highly connected to type 2 diabetes. Early signs of type 2 diabetes include chronic fatigue, irritability, frequent urination, vision problems and slow wound healing. Depression is prevalent in people with diabetes due to the fact that diabetes causes “structural changes in the brain.” Muscle-building helps regulate blood sugar levels. There is growing evidence that high blood sugar leads to reduced muscle mass. Beyond that, there’s a strong link between sleep deprivation and emotional weakness People suffer from suppressed anger. God is watching our every move. God sees through our motives. Mental health crisis is sweeping on a global scale because the core value of capitalism is incompatible with what human truly needs. Money cannot purchase inner peace. Wealth incurs fair-weather friends, frenemies and snobs. Inner peace is the utmost blessing from God. Take time to deal with your old mental wounds. 佛教主張因果論,而 Bible主張人生必有難題(不論好人壞人),主張磨練都是鍛鍊心智,但災難的背後會有禮物(禍福相依,壞消息可能是跳板,好消息處理不當就變成頭痛點)!Bible主張人生只有一回,沒有前世今生!人生會有很多上蒼的隨堂考,氣生災,如果你相信成功需要幸運,把「柔」做好,就可以賺福氣,Bible強調自律、謙卑和禍從口出。潛意識24小時不睡覺,中醫主張生悶氣、恐懼和悲觀是疾病的根源。很多人可能想不到很多老毛病是肩頸僵硬引起的,「因為肩頸僵硬會引發自律神經失調」,而自律神經失調恐引發一大串的毛病!久坐者即便沒有駝背也可能有「坐姿前傾」的問題,建議手臂做180%和90%的拉伸動作,按壓指間穴道也有大助益。健康建議:天芢無糖抹茶牛奶+ 無糖豆漿+鹼性飲食(可提高基礎體溫)+淋巴按摩X 頭皮耳朵穴道按摩+甩手操或拍打功或低耗氧的運動。糖尿病可逆轉!「提高肌肉量」是控制血糖的的關鍵!人們低估了「糖過量」及「過食」對身體的破壞力。國外研究證實阿茲海默症患者「禁糖」可望痊癒!如果遭受暴力(家暴)、性侵或性騷擾或任何身心虐待,撥打113保護專線,24小時全年無休!生活、學業、工作等等情緒困擾,撥打安心專線「1925」。寫信給司馬儀:Gmail: jpsiawase@gmail.com
