We can basically work with most any format, however here are some tips to assist you in successfully publishing your ebook.
Please submit the documents with the following guidelines in mind:
Microsoft.doc, size of 5 mb or less (unformatted is best); PDF or InDesign files are also acceptable
Images and graphics should be kept to a minimum ‑10 percent or less—as these are being formatted for text readers that cannot load too many images. Images must be in jpg format and embedded in the Word document.
(Note to cartoonists – cartoon books are a completely different ball of wax requiring superhero conversion tricks, alas! But don't lose hope, we are currently working on offering Cartoon, Comic, and Graphic Novel eBook conversions. Contact us for the scoop!)
Tables cannot be aligned in a text reader so don’t use them.
Most eBook readers cannot read tabs so don’t use tabs to indent the line of each paragraph
A note about fonts: fancy fonts are often rejected by eBook readers. So it’s best to stick with one of the Web Standard Fonts (Verdana, Arial, Cambria, Times, Tahoma, etc.)
You may submit a pdf document of what you’d like the end project to look like. We will attempt to get as close as possible to your PDF. However eBook readers have several strict formatting rules that may prohibit exact duplication.
The cover image must be in jpg format. The best size is 500 pixels wide x 700 pixels tall at 72 dpi. The cover art should include title and author name. If you don’t have one we can produce one for an additional $75.00
Book Description: Please provide a book description of 400 characters or less; This will appear in the store listings so a good description is very important.
Some outlets, Kindle and iPhone, require that a percent of the book is available for preview purposes. The amount you designate should be between 15 and 30 percent. Please provide a percentage of the free sample to make available.
Add the eBook conversion to your shopping cart, and fill out the instructional information. We will contact you to make arrangements to accept your documents and images.
