Service Description

I can convert virtually any existing document or material into the .epub format. I have worked with OCR'd text, raw text, .pdf files, Word files, InDesign files, and a variety of HTML file formats to create epub docs. I am detail oriented and I guarantee your satisfaction!
There are factors that will influence my charges. These include what format the existing "book" is in. Just because a file is already in html format doesn't mean it's a piece of cake to get it into epub format. Regardless of the existing format, consistency within that file (formatting, fonts, etc.) is the most important factor in what the project will cost.
Additionally, what your goal is for the final product has a big impact on the project. I have created ebooks for people who were only submitting their manuscript to traditional book publishers, and didn't care about their typos, grammatical errors, incomplete sentences, etc. Such a project is low cost because it requires less work on my part. Other projects have required my experience in traditional book design work, as well as the technical ability to actually create the epub file. Please know what you want as the final product so we can get there as quickly and efficiently as possible.
