Echo eBooks enters into a distribution contract on your behalf and we declare we have no tax affairs in the US. We also have an EIN number to confirm this. We, and you, pay tax on any income from sales in the normal way in the UK.

Just about anything, although limitations of the eBook format mean that it is best suited to text heavy rather than illustration heavy books. Photos and illustrations can be included, but with a wide range of screen sizes on eReaders, results for very large images may be variable.

We require a selling price, cover image, author details, and unique ISBN number. If you don't have an ISBN number for the eBook we can issue you with one.

You can either use your own ISBN numbers and be listed as the publisher on the iBookStore and other stores, or we can issue one for you.
