Welcome to the EMRE ePub3 Creator Studio!
Create and manage your ePub3 books here.
EMRE is the best ePub3 creator studio to create and publish multimedia books in EPUB3 with HTML5 and CSS3.
Here the top ten reasons why the EMRE ePub3 creator studio is the best way to create multimedia content:

The studio was developed by an established, independent author. Jim Musgrave wanted an intuitive and dynamic way to publish multimedia content that will establish a new trend in reading within the Embellisher eReader.
There is no other eReader that has an accompanying developer studio for members built right inside the app. Although iBook, Blurb and Inkling Habitat have developer software available online, their systems are fixed and proprietary, and they take a cut from the price of every book you sell through them. That may mean more profit for the company, but it’s not conducive to independents. EMRE Publishing’s President and CEO, Jim Musgrave, is an independent author and publisher, so he wants all independents to be able to use his eReader and accompanying ePub3 Creator Studio so they can collect 97% of the profits once their masterpiece is created and uploaded.
This studio will have the only way to develop “choose your own adventure” eBooks in multimedia format. Authors can link alternate plot lines to take readers to new levels of enjoyment. Young Adult authors can use this tool to hold fascinating conversations between characters. Children’s book authors can link animation, video and graphics to the “choices” to create an entirely new interaction based on the reader’s choices. Jim Musgrave believes that “story must be king,” so the “Insert Story” feature was a prime concern in the development of the studio. He was inspired by the popularity of the paper version of the Choose Your Own Adventure Books, and authors will enjoy using this tool to see what it can do for their imaginations!
This ePub3 Creator Studio is the only application that allows authors to create music playlists right inside their eBook. Jim was using Booktrack.com to create online eBooks with sound effects, and he wanted to include this dynamic inside his studio for authors to use. The result is this cool method of inserting the choice of songs or audiobook reads right inside your eBook. The reader simply has to click on the handy “music note” icon inside the Embellisher eReader, and the playlist appears. The only disadvantage Jim saw at Booktrack was that the reader was forced to listen to sound. Therefore, the resulting Playlist Creator Tool allows the reader to choose if he/she wishes to listen to the selections. You can see a sample of how the result of this tool looks inside the sample for the Family Love Time Capsule. (Note: you must first register to use the eReader.)
EMRE Publishing has linked this studio with two courses (one free and one paid) for authors who are new to multimedia development in eBooks. Jim Musgrave wants to train authors in the creative use of his studio, so he has created the Basic Creative Writing Course, which authors can take online for free. The curriculum is aimed at developing the skills necessary to create multimedia content, and when the author is ready he/she may enroll in the Advanced Multimedia Development Course for a membership fee. This course has an accompanying eText, Running with the Big Dogs: A Creator’s Guide to Using Electronic Media. Jim created the course with the goal to train authors how to develop multi-sensory eBooks. Thousands of royalty-free media are included in this curriculum, so authors may invest in the development inside the studio with a lot less worry about cost.
EMRE Publishing, LLC wants to stay ahead of its competition. This is why Jim Musgrave wanted to stay with an open source product. It’s much faster and easier to have a talented developer create an “add on” for the client than it is to lock-in the reader with proprietary code that will deprecate the user experience and cost the customer more. We are the only multimedia app publisher who allows the publisher/author to collect 100% of the cost of his/her titles once they purchase one of our publishing plans. For example, if the author wants to upgrade a present title using the studio then he/she can buy the Advanced ePub3 Production Plan for very little money.
This ePub3 Creator Studio is the first such application that allows the author to insert and store media inside their storage folders and download other files into this storage for inserting into the eBooks. The videos will play instantly inside the eBook, and there is no need to embed YouTube videos with their intrusive “hacker ads.” Since your membership is an SSL protected storage location, the Embellisher will read all the video files you insert as if they are coming from a local server. This is the reason why eBooks created inside our studio are far superior to other creation software.
Authors who choose to develop their titles with the EMRE ePub3 Creator Studio will always have a professionaldeveloper close by to assist them with technical problems. Jim Musgrave prides himself on the fact that he has trained his developers to know what authors want and need to be creative, and the result is in the professional support authors receive when they enroll in the membership. Since the first month’s membership is free, authors can see if they like the tools before they begin to design work.
EMRE Publishing is there for educational eBooks. These educational eBooks can be produced and sold for less than the price of a taco. This should appeal to teachers and students especially. As some publishers begin to charge $200 to $300 or more for individual enhanced eBooks (often to the diminishment of the tree-populations of the earth), eBook publishers can get by with under $10 per book and make valuable material more easily available through an Embellisher app in both iOS and Android formats. Those publishers who continue to charge high prices for eBooks can easily be undercut by enterprising, less profit-driven educators and entrepreneurs who use the Embellisher publishing system. Again, the open source code makes the studio much easier for academic titles to be circulated to students. Teachers will enjoy the instant “preload” feature that places a newly-created eBook directly on the student’s library interface as soon as it’s uploaded.
The Embellisher eReader provides a ton of ready-made templates for its publishers and authors. It just rolled-out its Family Love Time Capsule template for families who want a private way to exchange their movies, photos and other media to each other. Authors will also enjoy the Forum inside the Embellisher because it allows for the formation of direct communications with their readers—right inside the eReader app. Book clubs, Author Q&A, and even live presentations from brick-and-mortar locations can be included in this dynamic social gathering place. Also, it’s private and secure, unlike Facebook or all the other proprietary social websites. Your membership includes this privacy and Author and Reader Forum for instant communications. This was of prime concern to author Jim Musgrave, as he understand that an indie author’s niche readers are of special importance to their integrity and to their feedback.
The following templates for authors to use will also be coming inside the studio:
- A cartoonist, comic and manga template with panels and tools for online drawing and cartooning. (Stripwise is an open source tool for reference.)
- A musician and live performance template with easy ways to load songs and videos of live performances.
- An art sales template, which would include an interactive gallery to sell featured artwork with sluglines for information about artist and work.
- An ePub3 auction template that would provide ways to create auctions of products.
- Academic textbook template that would include footnotes, mathematical and scientific interactive elements, and a way to develop simple interactive quizzes and tests. Also include an extra price option for EMRE Publishing to develop the tests using WordPress Courseware.
- ePub Promotion template: this would be for authors who have an older version of ePub without multimedia. This would allow author to include an interview with author video, book trailer video, and dramatic reading from text video that would be packaged in the final ePub3 formatted eBook that includes the old ePub eBook for just reading.
