What are the different types of eBooks for children and young adult readers? Fixed format eBooks vs. reflowable text eBooks. How does distribution differ for eBooks vs. print books and considerations for smaller children's eBook publishers, especially those of illustrated children's books.

This was a presentation to the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators to help them understand the ePublishing options if they choose the indie publishing route to self publishing.
