  • 3. 1. What is Eliberato Eliberato is a new way to publish your book. In the past, the vast majority of authors remained unpublished and as a result many works remained unread due to the commercial restraints on publishers. Conventional publishers were unable to publish books due to their own self imposed niche requirements and the perceived lack of interest in some subjects. Now, with Eliberato, it is possible to publish any work quickly and easily. All publishing is electronic. As an author all you need to do is upload your book to the Eliberato website and you can immediately make it available to readers worldwide. Readers can download your book to their computer or e-reader. Not since the invention of the printing press by Johannes Gutenberg in 1440 has there been such a huge step forward in the availability of mankind’s written thoughts. 2. Will Eliberato publish my book? Yes. Eliberato is available to all authors to publish their work. Books can be published in any language and on any subject. At the moment there are over seventy categories into which an author can place their work. It is up to the individual author as to which category they place their work. In some cases a book may be suitable for more than one category and this will enable readers to find it. 3. What type of material is published? Any. Eliberato is keen to encourage the publication of books, magazines, poems, technical manuals, research papers etc on any subject. The only restrictions on subject matters are clearly explained in our standard terms and conditions, but in short, books adhere to common decency.
  • 4. We always reserve the right to remove books which do not meet our terms and conditions. In addition to this, we give all our readers the opportunity to highlight books which they feel are objectionable in some way. If a complaint is received regarding a particular book we will notify the author concerned. 4. How much will it cost me? Nothing. Our aim is to provide a method for authors to reach readers. We believe that good books will sell. Our role is to provide you with a way to reach people. 5. What about the cover design? The cover of any book is important. It is the very first impression that you will give a potential reader, so give it some thought. When you upload your book to the Eliberato website you will be given the opportunity to upload an image that will become the cover. The cover image should be in jpeg (.jpg) format. It must be separate to the PDF. You can upload it to the server from your control panel. This image does not use up any part of the 20MB allocation for your eBook. 6. Who will read my books? Anyone, anywhere in the world. Our aim is to set the word free. We want your voice to be heard. 7. Who edits my book? You do. Eliberato does not edit your book. If you feel that you would benefit from the work of a professional editor you are free to do so at any stage. You can always amend your book at any stage. 8. Does Eliberato publish traditional paper books?
  • 5. No. Eliberato is only involved in electronic publishing and does not plan to publish paper books. 9. What language should I write in? Any language. There are no restrictions on the language that you publish your work in. We welcome authors from all corners of the world. This Simple Guide to Publishing on Eliberato is translated into over 58 languages. 10. What file format should I use? PDF. We ask all authors to publish their work in the PDF format as this has become the standard for all electronic books. PDF stands for Portable Document Format (PDF) and is a generic computer term. PDF files are the most common way of publishing eBooks and can therefore be used on all computers and and are easily converted to other formats for Kindle, iPad and other eReaders. If you are new to creating PDF files you may already have the appropriate software on your computer. To find out – simply open a file you have been working on, then SAVE AS a pdf or EXPORT AS a pdf, depending on your software. Alternatively you can learn how to create PDF files using a variety of programs and techniques by searching the internet. This approach will help you with both basic PDF creation and ways to enhance your PDF files. File Size For eBooks with images you can experiment with lowering the JPEG compression quality. The lower the percentage the more the images are compressed, and so the smaller the PDF file becomes. A figure of between 75% and 90% is likely to be satisfactory. Don't forget to review the PDF file before uploading it and please remember that your file must not exceed 2MB for it to be uploaded to Eliberato.
  • 6. If you need more information about PDF files please visit of Guide to PDF available on the Eliberato website. 11. Can my book be read on the latest e-readers like Kindle and iPad? Yes. There are a large number of new e-readers coming onto the market and they all support the PDF format or software into which PDF can be converted. 12. How do I choose a category? There are over seventy categories to choose from. It is up to you to decide which best suits your book. It may help to ask yourself where a reader would look for your book if they knew it was on the Eliberato website. 13. Can I be listed in more than one category? Yes. Again, it is up to you to decide how may categories you wish to be listed in. 14. Will I be paid? Yes. When you upload your book you are given the option to decide if you wish to sell your book or if you wish to give it away for free. This is up to you. If you wish to sell your book, we will pay you 75% of all sales. We do not make any payment to you if you decide to give your book away for free. 15. How will I receive the money? PayPal When you upload your book to the Eliberato website we ask you to provide some details about yourself so that we can make payments to you. You will need a PayPal account if you wish to be paid. 16. What is the best way to promote my book?
  • 7. Tell everyone about it! Once you have uploaded your book we will provide you with the direct link to it. You can copy and paste this link into your blog, emails, social network sites etc and let people know about your book. Many authors use Twitter, Facebook, Ushi, QQ and many other social network sites to promote their work. In addition to this, Eliberato works hard to promote all authors so that you are not alone! We are all working together to set the word free! 17. OK! I’m ready to publish. Great! Here is list of what you will need. (a) Your finished book in PDF format. (b) A cover image in JPEG format (c) A PayPal account Please remember that you can always contact us if you need any help or support in publishing your book Finally, good luck!
