eBook Conversion Formats
ePUB file for Amazon, Apple, Kobo, Google all other retailers, subscription services and e-libraries.
Suitable for mostly text books, or books with a simple format – if your content contains more complex formatting you should consider Fixed Layout formats. See this blog post for more information about how to prepare a manuscript for conversion to standard files.
The standard reflowable eBook format offers the widest distribution opportunities and is compatible with all the major eBook reading platforms, devices and software.
If your book contains lots of images, or illustrations, or the content style needs to be maintained, Fixed Layout files will be the most appropriate way to create an eBook.
We produce a variety of fixed-layout eBook formats for different book types. Visit our fixed-layout file formats page for more details.
If your book is most suited to fixed layout formats see this post: Preparing your file for conversion to fixed layout formats.
How our eBook Conversion Service works…
- We will provide you with a price for conversion based on your description of your manuscript or, ideally, after we have seen your file or book. You can email your manuscript to email@example.com.
- If you choose to use our service we will need the following from you:
- Final manuscript – edited and proofread.
- Book cover – we offer an eBook Cover Design service if required.
- Sales information about your book – we will provide you with a form to complete which collects important information about your title (the metadata).
- Payment – for new clients we require payment for conversion at the start of the project. You can order online or we can issue you with an invoice and you can pay by a number of methods including PayPal and bank transfer.
The conversion process usually takes 10-12 working days. When we have converted the manuscript we will email eBook files to you for review, along with instructions detailing how to view the files on a Kindle, iPad or other eReader device. If you do not have an e-reading device, you can still check the eBook files, using free software on your PC or Mac.
If you spot anything that needs changing we can update the files and send them back to you for further review. Please note that if you request editorial changes after the conversion, there is likely to be an additional cost – this is why we strongly recommend that the manuscript you send to us has been edited and proofread.
Once you are happy with the converted eBook files they are ready for distribution. We offer a global eBook Distribution Service that manages the upload of your eBook files and metadata to all the major eBook retailers and thousands of libraries across the world. With our service you receive 100% of the royalties generated by your eBook sales and are paid monthly (assuming the amount due to you is at least $30/£20). For full details visit our eBook Distribution page.
You can place an order online, complete our short Quote Request Form or email details of your project, ideally with the full manuscript or a good representative sample from, to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond quickly, with a price based on the information you provide. We can convert manuscripts of any length or complexity.
