Service Description

Provide a PDF, inDesign, Quark, Pages, or Word file and I will convert your file to ePub and to Kindle. Your ePub will be validated for use on the iPad, the Nook, through Kobo, and through Google's new Digital Editions. These files will have all Table of Contents interactivity, metadata attached, and images included. Some advanced formatting is also possible, such as call out text boxes, image floats, etc.

I have created (hand-coded) over 500 ePub and Kindle files and would love to help you get your books online and in the hands of your readers.

Interested in print as well? When you combine your typesetting/pagination job and ebook conversion it can save you time and money. I can help you get your manuscript ready for Lightning Source, CreateSpace, and/or traditional printers.
