In this 3.5 minute screencast, digital learning consultant Wesley Fryer demonstrates how to use the $4 iPad application “eBook Creator” to export an enhanced eBook (in ePub format) to the DropBox application, and then email a public link to the ePub to a Posterous blog so it will “post” as a publicly accessible link for anyone to download. The following iPad apps are required to follow these steps:

I have been awaiting your review of this application and what you have shared here in this post has encouraged me to download the Creator.
We are using this in a district-wide competition called Penguin Palooza: http://penguinpalooza.wikispaces.com/ Even the youngest kids in elementary can do this with ease. We have also published an information booklet on ebook publishing and linked to a bunch of similar apps on interest: http://pinterest.com/ldaughrity/ebook-publishing-resources/
We have become huge fans of this and others like book creator because of the audio ability. There is nothing better than a student writing a book and then reading it in their own voice!
You can view some examples of how kids created these types of books here under student entries: http://penguinpaloozastorycreator.wikispaces.com/home
