If you use the OS X Mail application, you can quickly email your book directly from iBooks Author in a variety of formats.
Email your book
With the book open, choose Share > Send via Mail, and choose an option from the submenu:
- iBooks Author for Mac:Creates an iBooks Author document (with the extension .iba). Your recipient needs to have iBooks Author installed to open the file.
- iBooks for iPad:Creates an iBooks document (with the extension .ibooks). Your recipient can open the book by tapping the file in Mail on iPad, or by importing the file into iTunes (by dragging it to the iTunes window) and then using iTunes to sync the book to iPad. The recipient must have the iBooks app and iOS 5 or later on his or her iPad.
