Thank you for contacting me. Since immediate access to information can often be critical in business, you no longer have to wait on an email response from me to get the nitty-gritty 🙂 I will still contact you via email in response to your request and answer any additional questions you have, but this information will allow you to get started learning about the conversion process.
My base rate for a conversion is $150 (for both kindle and epub file types, total) for documents up to 50,000 words and 10 images. Text over 50,000 words is billed at $15 per 10,000 words. Each image over 10 is billed at $.50 per image.
- have active hyperlinks where you need them,
- have an interactive table of contents,
- retain formatting for all of your bold, italics, bullets, line numbering, and color, and
- have high-resolution graphics (as long as you can provide me with high-resolution graphics for the file).
Not only will you be able to use your files in bundle programs, but you will also be able to upload your Kindle/ePub files to Amazon, IngramSpark, your own website, and other distribution channels, maximizing the return on your investment.
I use the reflowable format, so your text will fit to the reader’s screen and can be controlled by their devices settings and is searchable. Fixed formats are reserved for image-based books, like children’s books and comics. Review this article to familiarize yourself with the differences in print books vs Reflowable Kindle Format.
The turnaround time will be 2 – 3 weeks, depending on the complexity of your document.
I will send the file to you for review, make adjustments as needed, and when the file is 100% approved, I will email you the final files and also send the files directly to Mandi at Ultimate Bundles.
What I Need From You
Ideally, I need your original source files, such as a Word document, Google doc, Pages file, or InDesign Package. However, if you all you have is the PDF, then I can work from that, but heavily formatted PDFs can make for difficult text extractions, often requiring me to actually have to retype text and do some technical circus acts to ensure that your kindle/epub file is the best that it can be.
This will result in an additional fee, and I will discuss the final quote with you before starting any work.
I will invoice you via paypal when the conversion is complete.
Kindle/ePub conversions is my secondary service. My primary service is doing full book design (covers and interior for print, pdf, and kindle/epub) and helping authors learn how to professionally self-publish. If you don’t yet have your book in print and would like to pursue that option, let’s chat about that. Since my process includes rebuilding your file in InDesign, you’re already half-way there. The next steps would be choosing a book trim size, formatting the interior for print specs, and assembling a full cover.
