Should I produce both and ebook and printed Book?

It depends on your objectives. If you want to maximize book sales, and are selling online as well as in bookstores, then produce both printed books and an ebook. Having your book printed as both a printed book and ebook gives your readers options to experience your book in a format that is suitable to a variety of preferences. Having both increases your chances of winning over a much larger audience.

If you are a person who just wants to give away your book, or share it with friends and family, and enjoy the pride that goes along with holding a beautifully printed book in your hand that you created, then a printed book is typically the best choice.

There is a distinct advantage to having both a printed book and the option of an ebook.
