MACs and eBooks

 We get a lot of inquiries about eBook software compatibility with MAC computers, and yes, it can be done,
although there are fewer software choices than for PC (no surprise!)

Making and distributing your eBook from a MAC computer & Reading an eBook on a MAC computer, in a nutshell...

You can produce your eBooks on a MAC by using a PC emulator (which basically makes your MAC behave like a PC) in conjunction with any of the eBook software from our guide. Done this way, your eBook will be viewable on any PC or MAC (that also has a PC emulator).

As an alternative, if you don't want to use a PC emulator, we suggest the PDF format for making and distributing your eBook so it can be read on any computer (PC or MAC). However, using this strategy restricts the available tools for making covers, distributing, automating commerce and securing your eBook product.

If you do use a PC emulator: any product in this eBook Resource Center will work for you. 

If you do not want to use a PC emulator: check out the products below. Each is MAC compatible.
