This post is also available in: ja日本語 (Japanese) frFrançais (French)

Digitalestate Inc. is a company specialized in electronic publishing & Print on demand (POD) paper book. We will support people who are thinking about producing e-book (and POD paper book) and selling at electronic bookstores. We will respond to consultation about production and sales support expenses.
From February 2015 we are selling at almost all electronic bookstores in Japan (and around the world).
Since June 2016, we have supported printing on demand. Print on demand is a service delivered from Amazon and Sanseido as print books to readers. For this reason there is no additional work for the author. We will do the work of converting EPUB of electronic book production into printing data.

To those who want to publish books

  • to publish a work
  • to publish a book by EPUB
  • to sell books at online stores
  • to selle print on demand book
  • to get author’s royalty

  1. Each book costs 50,000 yen. (We will respond to consultation depending on the contents of book, so please do not hesitate to consult us.)
