As Andrés said - other copyleft licenses may be more appropriate.

Charles Stross' Accelerando is published under an interesting model:

CC-BY-SA may do what you wish, but it may also depend on how you want others to be able to modify and redistribute the work. As for platforms, this might be a good opportunity to survey the range of ebook distribution networks for those that support CC at all levels (this is already common place for non-fiction works, e.g. arxiv).

Have fun!

I can't comment on the best licenses for publishing, but when I think e-books, I think Project Gutenberg.  They have their own license and I haven't read it, but it might be worth looking at.
