Want to sell your manuscript as an e-book ?

For Apple 's iTune Connect or iBookstore, one needs to have

- A Mac and a broadband connection to upload the content
- ISBN for all the titles
- the format must be in ePub and must pass validation by Epubcheck software version 1.0.5
- US Tax ID ( I see that, at this time, people in other countries can not apply yet)
- valid iTune account, with credit card info on file

Apple also say that they don't pay to partners (authors) until an earning threshold is reached in each territory. (Wow. This means that if a manuscript can not sell well you won't get pay.) So I expect that individual lesser known author should not sell there, unless you have a large number of titles in the collection to get substantial sale.
