    Could we not have a sticky in this section with a step by step guide on how to upload a book onto iTunes, I've searched and can never find anything that explains in easy detail.
    I've written a book that centres around Carp Fishing and want to try selling it through iTunes.

    Thanks in advance people.

    Chris.

    Thanks, I've got a book that is out in paperback nd available as an e-book on amazon.com. I wanted to make it available on iBooks as well, but never bothered checking out how to do it. Strangely enough, though, I think the amazon e-book shares an ISBN with the physical book -- AND amazon sells both.

    There is also a book available on iBooks called "IPad Publishing Guide", I think it is free but can't remember, it's by Michael Ashley.

    Thanks. It's downloading now. And you were right, it is free.

    I did see that link Tim yes, but like everything with Apple, you need to have a degree in computer science to get through it, I tried understanding the ISBN number, my book already has one as it is in print, so I would need to create a new one from scratch, but to be honest, 2 clicks in and I'm stumped.......I'm a bit of a numpty with technology!!
    What I would like to see is, one of the authors on here who has managed to create A book in the iBook store, to give a step by step with explanations of how they did it. Like you find in the hacking sections.

    Let us know how you get on - I'm sure they'll be quite a few people interested.
