Have you noticed that digital books tend to be the new norm? To remain competitive, publishers are willing to develop a new kind of textbooks. They mix the digitalization of texts with interactive contents to create unique and attractive textbooks: interactive eBooks! Now, not only could the reader enjoy a well-written text, but he can also watch videos, listen to audios, play, exercise, etc. OK, but how to make an interactive eBook? Here is a step-by-step guide to help you understand the process. 

Step 1: Writing

What would be a digital textbook without texts? Of course, it is fun and interesting to add interactive content but let’s not forget that words are still the most important part of a book, whatever format it is written in. 

You can write your book at your convenience on a simple word processor or directly into the epub software. You can also choose to write you book before you add interactive contents or do both at the same time. 

Step 2: choosing interactive content

Whether you are willing to create an educational eBook or a regular book, adding interactive content will allow the reader to understand more deeply the purpose of your book. 

While creating your interactive eBook, you can choose to add the assets altogether at the end or one by one. Once integrated, you can change them, move them, delete them … well, you can actually do whatever you want with them!

Step 3: Creating Design

Now that you have your text and your interactive content, it’s time to create an amazing design. First of all, the cover page should give the reader the will to buy the book and read it cover to cover. If you do not feel comfortable with creating a design, you can ask a professional designer to do it for you.

But the design does not stop at the cover. You should also take into consideration the font, the line spacing, the inserts, the page footer, etc. The more your book will be airy and correctly designed, the more the readers will enjoy it.
