    Conversion to eBook
    On Request

    There are multiple advertisements for Ebook conversions starting as low as $75. Those conversions usually amount to a point and click operation on behalf of the vendor.

    Your most lucrative market may very well be digital, so great care must be given to designing your Ebook, and a cover that may appear the size of a postage stamp.  Your book will appear on multiple venues and devices; what looks perfect on one device may look cut-and-paste on another.  We experiment and come up with the best compromise that looks professional on the broadest assortment of devices. We can give a firm price for Ebook conversion once we have formatted your manuscript in hard copy. 

    You can expect to pay in the vicinity of $350 to have us tailor your manuscript for this exciting market.
