eBook Dynasty: FAQs

 

Q: What kind of organisation is eBook Dynasty? What services do you provide?

A: eBook Dynasty is an imprint of Solid Software Pty Ltd (Australia). Our aim is to provide software that helps people realise the full potential of their Personal Computer to be a powerful, useful and friendly servant around the home, school and office. Our products are designed to help people be:

Our services include: Chinese eBook Publishing, Chinese Print Book Publishing, Chinese eBook and Print Book Promotion, and English/Chinese and Chinese/English Translation. For details, please see Our Services.

 

Q: Why is eBook Dynasty helping English-language authors translate, publish and promote their titles as Chinese digital and print books?

A: Because we love good books, and are willing to do all we can to promote them. Our long-term goal is to help all authors, book artists and readers cross the English/Chinese linguistic and cultural boundaries.

 

Q: What does eBook Dynasty need to start promoting my book?

A: To translate, publish and promote your title to the Chinese World in digital and/or print formats, please get in touch using our Book Submission EOI. We will respond within 24 hours. For our publishing procedure, please see For Authors.

 

Q: How are eBook Dynasty's Chinese ebooks distributed?

All our ebooks are published in Simplified Chinese (mainly used by readers in China) and Traditional Chinese (mainly used by readers in Taiwan and Hong Kong). All our titles and their authors have promotional web pages in Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese and English on our website.

Since August 2019, all our Chinese ebooks are distributed via IngramSpark's global online retail partners and eBook Dynasty's online bookstore. Authors can choose extra promotional services through our distribution partner in Taiwan. For more details, please see For Authors.

 

Q: Apart from Chinese ebooks, does eBook Dynasty provide Chinese print book publishing service?

A: Yes. Starting from November 2014, eBook Dynasty has been providing Chinese print book publishing service to authors worldwide. All our Chinese print books are published in horizontal format as perfect bound paperbacks. The interior is either black-and-white or colour, and the cover is either matte or gloss.

Since November 2017, all our Chinese print books are distributed via IngramSpark's global print retail partners and Global Connect, as well as eBook Dynasty's online bookstore. Authors can choose extra promotional services through our distribution partner in Taiwan. For more details, please see For Authors.

 

Q: How much does eBook Dynasty charge for the whole project?

A: We have explained this as best as we could in this page: For Authors.

 

Q: What is the difference between Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese? What about Mandarin?

A: Mandarin is the official dialect used in both China and Taiwan. As for writing, however, we translate and publish ebooks in both Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese. Here is an explanation from Wikipedia:

"Traditional Chinese characters are currently used in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau and in [China's] Guangdong Province... In overseas Chinese communities other than Singapore and Malaysia, Traditional Chinese characters are most commonly used, although the number of printed materials in Simplified Chinese characters is growing in Australia, USA and Canada, targeting or created by new arrivals from China... In contrast, Simplified Chinese characters are used in China, Singapore and Malaysia in official publications."

 

Q: Will I still have all my rights as the author?

A: Yes. All your rights, including the Chinese digital and/or print rights to your book, will still remain with you. We only ask that when you promote your Chinese ebook elsewhere, you keep the price the same as that agreed in our contract. The standard term of a contract is five years.

 

Q: Does eBook Dynasty use Digital Rights Management (DRM) technologies?

A: The different ebook formats we use involve the use of different kinds of DRM mechanism. For example, the MOBI and ePUB formats have their own DRMs. The PDF format is encrypted to prevent illegal modification and duplication. For all Chinese ebooks distributed via eBook Dynasty, we also embed the paid customer's personal details in the Chinese ebook's copyrights page to encourage a sense of ownership.

 

Q: How do I contact eBook Dynasty if I have more questions and/or concerns?

A: Whether it is to publish and promote your writing as a Chinese ebook and/or print book, or you wish to comment on any aspect of our operations, please feel free to Contact Us. We are always happy to hear from you.
