Blurb Online Ebook Creator and iBookStore

Hi, 

Anyone know if it is possible to use the Blurb online Ebook Creator and have the book accepted by Apple iBookStore? 

There are several formatting criteria for the iBookStore, eg. "at least two beginning entries in the iBooks application functional table of contents", what ever that might mean, and no formatting options as such in the online software. 

Anybody know?

If you haven't already try a search of The Knowledgebase (menu above) for ibookstore,  there are quite a few posts in there, maybe one will help..

Sorry I couldn't be of direct help.

Hi NRio,

Ebooks created with our online ebook creator can be submitted (and accepted) to the Apple ibookstore. In fact, all ebooks submitted to the iBookstore through us have gone through the ebook creator in some form.

Hi Padraic, 

Thanks for answer. So, you are saying that the kind of formatting required by iBookStore is automatic in the Ebook Creator and that the remaining bugs in the Ebook Creator that cause rejection from iBookStore will be fixed up soon?

Update:

Actually it seems the problem is due to a bug in Blurb's own system, here is feedback from customer support: The rejection that you are seeing is actually a bug in our system inaccurately reflecting the sate of the iBookstore submission. This book is still being reviewed by Apple and when it is accepted, you will be notfied.

Question:

if I create a book via inDesign CS5, and convert all the sRGB images I've placed into the layout to CMYK using Blurb's profile -- and then upload the final manuscript for a print-on-demand book -- can I use the same uploaded file to produce an ebook which will be read on an iOS device? Meaning, will the converted CMYK files look good on the iOS device?

Or must I create two versions of the book, one for CMYK paper output and one for the RGB screen?

And also, I believe I must have separate ISBN numbers for the paper book, and the ebook. Can I put both ISBN numbers on the front matter page in the same layout, with the copyright info, or must there again be two separate files uploaded to Blurb to do this?

TIA,

thokitts
