This is one of my books:

  [obscured]  /Ready-Set-Done-Innovate-Faster/dp/0973655429

I am Oblio Press, and am the publisher.

This book is also print-on-demand through Amazon ; we have a full PDF, start to finish, that has all the fonts embedded. The book also exists in an InDesign file.

I've tried a few PDF to Epub conversion tools, and the results are pretty horrendous. The InDesign process is also something we are struggling with.

I am looking for someone who can create an ePub that is actually readable, formatted correctly on an iPad/Kindle etc, and matches the design of the book as seen in print. We'd want to get an actual ePub file that we could use to publish to Apple etc (using Smashwords or similar).

I'm a little skeptical of the whole ePub thing right now since everywhere I go I just seem to see bad conversions...automatic conversions that produce pretty unreadable junk.

A sample of the book is attached.

We have the full cover in 600DPI color.
