Our automated software will take your Word document and create all of the major eBook formats in the retail space today. Since eBooks are very different than print books, we offer the following suggestions when sending us your Word Document and cover
Cover. The front cover should be uploaded in jpg format and be at least 1000 pixels on the longest side. The preferred size of a cover is 1600 x 2400 pixels.
Table of Contents. Do not include a Table of Contents. Our software will create a linkable TOC compatible with ePub standards. To facilitate this, highlight every chapter title you would like in the Table of Contents and select Heading 1.
Fonts. Don’t worry about font face or family … all ePub documents will contain the default Serif font for the device used to read your book. All text in your book must be able to be formatted in the Serif font.
Formatting. Remove all page breaks and pagination from your document. ePub books are meant to be reflowable and resize depending on the size of the reading device.
Images. When using images, do not just copy and paste into your document. They must be embedded within the document (Insert > Picture).
Blank Lines. Line spacing is ignored by ePub readers. If you want to insert a blank line, make sure your manuscript has 4 blank lines to force a blank.
That’s it. Don’t expect your eBook to look like a printed book. Unless we also design and print your book, we have little control over the end product. For the best fidelity eBooks you can select one of our packages that includes printed books.
