Imarsh, the fastest way is to self-publish an ebook. You can do it in a week on Kindle if you have your images and text all ready! Kindle Direct Publishing has some comments on formatting a children's book in its forum at: http://207-171-168-158.amazon.com/kdpforums/thread... Same is true with Nook. It's harder to get into the Applestore for the ipad, so I went to bookbaby.com for help with that conversion. The downside of not going to a publishing house is that you have to do all the promotion, marketing, selling, etc. by yourself. I sell about 5 of my children's ebook a month for Kindle, Nook, iPad, combined by doing nothing. For me, it's having it out there that's important right now. The only way a publishing company will pick up an ebook, from my understanding, is if your book skyrockets in the ebook market. They'll jump onto that bandwagon and create tangible copies.
