file conversion for self publishing authors
$30 flat rate per ebook format!
The instructions here are intended for authors who will be self-publishing their own work to their distributors of choice and merely need their manuscript/s converting into ebook format/s.
you declare that you are the copyright holder for
ALL and ANY work submitted.
FINAL CHECKLIST BEFORE SUBMISSION
You should perform these simple tasks against your completed manuscript to ensure quicker converting of your book. We will let you know if further corrections are needed, but this is a good starting point.
In Microsoft WORD:-
a. Remove all Headers, Footers and Page numbers - these do not
convert to ebook formats.
(click here for useful codes used in Word's Search and Replace Function.)
NOTE: digital files such as EPUB and MOBI can only be edited using sophisticated software.
1. Once completed,
email us your final manuscript for checking and conversion. Remember
to let us know which format you prefer, i.e. EPUB, MOBI, etc. Please try
to keep any single email size to under 2MB to prevent email
blockage (your ISP won't be pleased, either!). You may ZIP files
for easier transport.

A note about ebook formats.
Like all things electronic, there are invariably several 'versions' available. Ebooks are no different and all ebook formats are available in several different versions of the SAME format, such as EPUB. Neither we nor anyone else can guarantee that converted files will be compatible with ALL 'flavors' of any particular format. All of our converted files will, however, be compatible with the most common versions in use today.
We offer to repeat a conversion if it does not perform as expected. Simply email us and explain exactly what the problem is. If it is a fixable issue, we will attempt to fix the error/s and re-issue a new file.
