If you’re going to distribute your book on iBooks, you’ll need to get approved. That’s expensive. So instead of a direct push, use a third party like “Smashwords.” My publishing company (my side line business) uses Smashwords to generate all ebooks.
If you are unsure how to do formatting for Smashwords (it’s difficult even after you practice), you can send me a private message and I can connect you with some of the people we use… they do charge though, but I feel that their prices are reasonable given the work that they do. And, it means you aren’t frustrated trying to understand the automated system errors that get sent to you by Smashwords when your book doesn’t format correctly.
