Three years after the UK’s ebook publishing market collapsed, the sector is still in its infancy.
As the digital revolution continues to grow, there are some clear areas for growth, but it remains a small industry, with an extremely limited supply of authors and an uncertain future.
This article is an introduction to the industry, examining what’s next, where it’s going and what’s the best way forward.1.
What is ebook publishing?
In 2014, ebook publishing was a small, but important sector.
For the first time, digital authors had access to the same opportunities as print and print-on-demand authors.
Digital authors could create their own ebook formats, as well as create a publishing contract, which would make them legally liable for copyright infringement.
It was the first step towards a more open and transparent industry, which is why it has had a hugely positive impact on both the UK and worldwide publishing markets.2.
What has been the impact of digital publishing?
Digital publishing is currently growing at a phenomenal rate.
According to a recent report by the Authors Guild, digital publishing accounted for a quarter of all book sales in 2014.
In the UK alone, digital sales amounted to £13.6bn.3.
Why is it important to understand the digital publishing market?
Ebook publishing is unique in that authors need to be aware of the rights they have in a work before they can submit it for publication.
The author needs to know what they own in order to submit a work to the market.
The copyright owner of the work has the right to terminate a work in the event of its unauthorized use.
However, once a work has been published, it can never be legally used again.
There is a long way to go before authors are able to obtain their full copyright in a novel or film, for example, and it’s difficult to predict when this will occur.
There are still some key issues, such as how long a work can be legally published.4.
How can I access digital publishing services?
There are currently four different ways you can access digital publishers services:1.
Kindle: A Kindle reader is the most popular ebook publishing platform in the world, and is currently available to UK authors.
It is available for £12.99 a year and is available on a wide range of devices, including smartphones, tablets, and laptops.2, Amazon Kindle Unlimited: Amazon Kindle is a subscription service, available for free.
It offers a range of digital book services, including books for download, aswell as eBook publishing.3, Audible: Audible is a service available to authors who subscribe to an audiobook or audiobook reader, which provides access to audio-only audiobooks and audio-plus-video-on demand (AVO) audio books.4, Audio Publishing: Audio offers a variety of services to publishers and authors alike.
It has digital books, eBook publishing, and other services.5.
Where can I find more information?

In addition to this, you can also check the UK publishing industry’s websites for more details.6.
What can authors do to protect their rights?
If you are a UK author, you should be aware that publishers can use a number of legal methods to silence or delete your work.
For example, in 2014, a UK court ruled that Penguin Publishing Limited, a major UK publisher, was able to legally force an author to stop publishing their work.
Authors are also advised to protect themselves from other copyright infringement claims, by ensuring they have copies of the author’s copyright and other relevant documents.
If a publisher believes your work has infringed their copyright, it may also sue you for damages.7.
What are the key issues in digital publishing right now?
Epublishing is one of the most rapidly growing sectors of the book publishing industry.
The UK has seen an increase in ebook sales in the past three years, and the digital book market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.7 per cent over the next five years.
This growth has been fuelled by the introduction of ebooks as a format in 2014 and a number to choose from.
However the industry is still relatively young and many publishers are still struggling to keep up with the changing digital publishing landscape.8.
