Conversion of your manuscript to ePub and Mobi/Kindle formats
Most of our online bookstores accept the ePub format for e-books they sell, except for Amazon’s Kindle that uses a version of Mobipocket. We convert your Microsoft Word file to both of these formats.
CONVERSION OF MANUSCRIPT TO EPUB FORMAT.
ePub is an acronym for electronic publishing. ePub became an official standard of the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF) in September 2007. ePub is the software that is used by Barnes & Noble NOOK ™, Kobo.com, Apple’s iBookstore, iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch and smartphones that use Android technologies.
We can generally complete the ePub files conversion services in ten (10) business days following receipt and approval of your edited and approved manuscript.
CONVERSION OF MANUSCRIPT TO MOBI/KINDLE FORMAT.
The Mobipocket technology is utilized in the Kindle® e-Book reader, with a proprietary format known as AZW, with optional Digital Rights Management (DRM)* embedded in the software. Because the Kindle® eBooks are delivered over its wireless system known as the Whispernet, the user does not see the AZW files during the downloading process.
*DRM technologies attempt to control use of digital media by preventing access, copying or conversion to other formats by end users.
We can generally complete the Mobi/Kindle conversion services in ten (10) business days following receipt and approval of your edited and approved manuscript.
Because your manuscript will be proofread by our editors in Microsoft Word using the “Review” protocols of this program, all manuscripts must be submitted in Microsoft Word (.doc, docx formats only, please).
