Struggling writers and emotional hipsters, take note! Apple is now accepting applications for independently published works to fill the virtual shelves of its iBookstore. First and foremost, to get the ball rolling you’ll need to sign in with iTunes Connect and register a valid US Tax ID. Then, after converting your work into an ePub file and verifying it with ePubCheck 1.0.5, you’ll need to apply for an ISBN. After that, send the file Apple’s way and not long after you’ll (hopefully) start to reap the financial rewards of the burgeoning medium. Way too much work? Simply get in contact with one of Apple’s seven approved iBookstore aggregators and they’ll do most of the gruntwork for you. We look forward to seeing your angst-ridden works gather virtual dust on our iBookshelf.
