We are in the process of creating an eBook. Now we are contemplating to release this ebook in two versions, full and lite. 'Lite' version would be created to reach the extensive Amazon audience. The reasons we are not willing to sell our 'full' version from Amazon are -
1) We won't be creating the full version in pdf or word format (piracy concerns) rather it will be a flash file stored behind our secured website. Also, as per our understanding Amazon doesn't allow any digital version other than ePub (Kindle's proprietary format) 2) Amazon keeps about 65% revenue on every ebook sold.
Lite version will contain highlights from the full version and will be available at a fraction of a cost. At places within this lite version, we plan to put promos(ads) of the full version so that people can 'upgrade' to the full version.
Do you think this would be a good approach? or can we make our approach better? Any ideas would be appreciated.
