As an avid reader, I just love the convenience of being able to dip into a few pages
of my current read at any time. But as a designer, if the ebook I've bought
turns out to be poorly converted, I just find it too distracting to read. An ebook
should retain all the accuracy of the print book and as much of the character as
possible. Parts of the layout should also be carefully adapted for compatibility
with the widest possible range of small devices. This takes real care and attention
which explains why there are so many poorly converted ebooks out there — so
make sure yours stands out as one that looks great!

receiving your quotation
This timescale is an estimate. The time required to complete your particular job
will be in your quotation. Please note if we are producing your printed book then
this must be completed first. For tight deadlines we provide an
subject to availability.
Your ebook file will not have Digital Rights Management (DRM). Retailers each have their own DRM solution which you can choose to enable later when submitting files to them. However, unless absolutely neccessary we would advice against enabling DRM. It is intended as an anti-piracy deterrent but from our experience can cause problems for legitimate readers such as preventing them from reading the book on multiple devices.
We return a fully verified file ready for you to upload for distribution. Each file
is first checked for compliance with the latest technical standards and requirements
of the major ebook retailers (Amazon, iBooks). You will also receive a high resolution
marketing jpg of your cover. See this page for tips on
how to view your ebook
We send the whole ebook as a watermarked epub and/or mobi for review. Any technical
issues will always be fixed. Please be aware that certain book layouts — columns,
wrapped images, forced breaks — may be reworked to ensure your ebook is compatible
with the widest range of devices. Changes to text may be chargeable.
We request an initial 50% payment before our designers start work and a 50% payment
of the balance once you are totally happy. All instant payments paid via PayPal.
