and I'm trying to figure out what the best strategy for ebook publishing is for me. My biggest problem stems from the layout of the book. It's not a novel but a fictional guide with lots of color illustrations. I would lose a lot of the formatting through the epub format, which I can deal with but I'm not sure if it's worth the trouble to make an epub version when I can just export a full color PDF with the full layout.
So, I need to know what the best strategy for my book would be. Do I create a PDF or an epub and PDF or something else? What are the best practices for exporting PDFs and formatting epubs?
I know about Joe Konrath's blog and the broad trends of ebook publishing. I just can't find specific release strategies and techniques for making ebooks.
