Pricing Table

Custom eBook
eBook LayoutQuote NeededWe need to know more about your book in order to provide a quote.
We will provide you with formatting guides to help with the conversion process.
PDF Conversion to eBook
Print book to eBookQuote NeededWe need a PDF copy of the printed book to determine the complexity of converting.
We make your text live so the text can interact with the device's functions (defining words, etc.). Amazon and Apple will accept these live text ePubs. Some conversion apps and programs just make an ePub without live text. This works fine for computer ePub readers. Apple will not accept an ePub PDF - they want the text to be live and created with HTML.
