Time to get writing your Ebooks!!

With the explosion recently of the Kindles and the Nooks and the iPads, it's no wonder. And the markup % on those files is absolutely ridiculous and saves on publishing costs and many other start-up problems for the author / publisher.

a major paper bookstore has gone broke in Australia.
What's involved with ebooks? What kind of software? Can it be a very small book? Sell on own website?
Since Ebooks are sold as down-loadable and not indexed on the net, you can use some of your hubs, blog post and/or website articles for the bulk of your content.
I'm going to gather up my best Disney tips, Orlando vacation information and stuff and make several E-books out of them.

The most hubs I have on one topic is on the Impressionist artists. The main part is the pictures which I won't be able to add. Maybe I could just post the biographies but I don't know how much interest that would generate.

If there are any professional, published authors here on hubpages (and I'm sure there are tons of you guys) I was wondering if someone could tell me if self-publishing is good or bad, and maybe give a couple of pros and cons. It would be my first book.

I am curious what kind of experience e-book authors have had. I am at a crossroads right now and am trying to make some decisions about where to focus my writing. I could focus more on HP or I could do the e-book gig and see what happens. What kind of experiences have people had...
