    Hello All,

    I am in the process of writing a few ebooks, and have a few questions pretaining to best practices. I have two questions:

    1. Can any of you recommend ebook design templates/covers for me to use. Whether they are oay or free I need a good place to start with the formatting of my content. The content is there, it just needs a pretty wrapper.

    2. Security - Does anyone know of a half decent way of securing a pdf? It boggles my mind that PDF's arent more secure, there mus tbe some way....

    Thanks in advance for any help and advice you can offer!

    All the best,
    Jeff

    If you've got any design skill of your own, you should really look into a copy of Adobe's InDesign for your PDF design. It is phenomenal. In regards to content security, as with all things, you can make it harder to steal, but it will never be completely secure. Look into turning text selection off for a start.
