Electric Book Works Publishing reinvented for the digital age

We turn books into fast, interactive websites.

When thought-leaders need their publications to have the scale of the web and the authority of print, we’re their team.

Perhaps you want to create an online textbook, a professional handbook, or a book series that grows your brand. Are you frustrated with the limitations of conventional book distribution? And with never knowing if people engage with what you publish?

Read more about books as websites here. Our multi-channel approach gives your books the reach of the Internet, the convenience of Kindle, and the gravitas of print, all in one place. We’ll work closely with you to get your content to readers however they need it, wherever they are.
