There are two ways to get your book into epub format so that it can be sold on the iBookstore and other distribution channels. the first is to use the free Lulu Epub converter. It can convert your properly formatted .doc, .docx, .rtf, and .odf files into an epub. In order to do this option, you must read a 40 page guide that gives very detailed instructions on how to format your word dock for submission to have it converted into an epub for free. For more information and to get the guide, please visit: http://connect.lulu.com/t5/eBook-Formatting-Publishing/eBook-Creator-Guide/ta-p/109443

The second option is to purchase a conversion service from us. Using this method you submit a pdf to us and we will convert it into and epub for you (this process can take 3-5 weeks). For more information please visit Conversion Services:

For a start it would have been better to create a New Message rather than invade one almost four years old.

 

I find it hard to understand what you mean.

 

If the copyright is yours and there's no exclusive agreement with some other publisher then it is legal. If not then it's far from legal.
