eBook Formatting, Creation and Layout
Are you an author with a backlist looking to take advantage of the eBook boom, but you don’t know how or even where to begin? Are you a do it yourself person looking to self-pub? Maybe you’re part of a business who has documents you’d love to offer to clients and employees for their Kindle, Nooks and even iPads.
Whoever you are, I can help you deliver your content across these platforms and more.
Correctly formatting your book for Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords can be time consuming and difficult. Each format requires something specific that can throw you off or frustrate you and result in having to create and maintain multiple files. I can take your digital files and produce a ready for upload file in the proper format including:
- Mobi – used by the Amazon Kindle, this format will include an interactive Table of Contents, cover, copyright, dedication, title page – everything you are used to seeing when viewing a professionally formatted eBook on the Kindle. (download a sample eBook in .mobi format by clicking here)
- ePub – the free and open e-book standard by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF) used by Android devices (using Aldiko, CoolReader, FBReader), Barnes & Noble Nook, BlackBerry PlayBook, iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch, Kobo eReader and the Sony Reader. Again, I’ll provide a file with an interactive Table of Contents, cover, copyright, dedication, title page – everything you are used to seeing when viewing a professionally formatted eBook. (download a sample eBook in ePub format by clicking here)
If you are an author with a large backlist, we can work out a bulk rate quote.
I can also help with the design and development of your eBook cover.
I have spent some time mocking up covers for various stories and books that I have written over the years just to give you an idea of what I could do for you:
Please contact me with any questions you might have, and to discuss your project and work up a quote. I am willing to do a very small sample project (cover (provided by you) + a few pages) for free to show you my abilities and what you can expect. Or feel free to download my sample eBook in either .mobi or ePub format to see what I can offer.
