Frequently Asked Questions
What can you do for me?
Send us your manuscript. We will convert it into a professional format kindle book. You can then upload the Amazon-ready Kindle book and sell it on the biggest book marketplace in the world - Amazon.
Great, I want that, but how much does it cost?
The short answer is around $1/page. Less if is just text, more if there are lots of graphics, footnotes and hyperlinks. And of course it depends on the number of pages - the more pages the less expensive each page is.
We would love to give you an exact cost but because each manuscript is different the costs vary. Is your manuscript 10 pages or is it 500 pages? Is your book all text or is every second page a graphic with footnotes. These are some of the factors that determine the end price.
We have a minimum charge of $59.00 per book, regardless of length. This applies even for a 10 page manuscript because of the HTML conversion required for each book.
As a rule of thumb, if your manuscript is around 100 pages and has a few pictures then expect to pay around $100 (or $1/page).
If you want an exact quote use the Order Page to send us your manuscript. We will have a look at it and respond with a quote in less than 24 hours.
I can convert the book myself, why should I pay you to do it for me?
True, you can convert it yourself. But it won’t look good. If you do a simple conversion (convert your doc file to HTML then convert that to Kindle) your book will be amateurish and all your kindle readers will know it. The chapter navigation will not work, the nav bar at the bottom which separates the chapters will not work, the ‘goto’ feature will not work. Without page by page careful formatting the pages and paragraphs will not be spaced properly, chapters will not start on a new page, images will be fuzzy. To create a quality Kindle book requires the proper tools and experience - we have that (have a look at our sample book).
You will be selling your Kindle book on Amazon which offers you a huge marketplace. That is the good news, the bad news is that if your kindle book is poorly formatted people do not hesitate to mention it in the comments. You will lose lots of potential buys from just a few negative comments about formatting. Kindle users love their Kindles because of the experience of reading a properly formatted book - ruin that experience with a poorly formatted kindle book will surly make them upset.
What kind of content can you convert?
We accept almost everything digital. As long as there is a way for us to read it on either our PC or Mac computers we accept it. The most popular format we receive are Word, PDF and WordPerfect.
Once I receive the Kindle book, how difficult is it to publish on Amazon?
It takes about 10 minutes to open a KDP (Kindle Direct Publisher) account and it is free.
Once you receive the converted Kindle book from us you will simply upload it to Amazon. We will also send you a JPEG image file to upload as the cover image for the book.
After that, if Amazon approves your book (and they usually do unless you plagiarized content) your book will be live in 12 hours.
What if I do not have a Kindle, can I still view the book and upload it to Amazon?
Yes, just download this Kindle Book desktop viewer.
Will you fix my spelling mistakes?
Sorry but we do not do any proofreading. We are expert Kindle converters, not writers. Please have your manuscript proofread before you send it to us. (Of course, if we notice something obviously wrong we will let you know and ask whether you want it corrected.)
What if I need a couple changes done after you convert the book?
We are not happy until you are happy. But on the other hand, we cannot make an unlimited number of edits. We will make up to 5 corrections without charge.
What if a year later I want to add another chapter. No problem. There will be $25 reproduction fee and price per page charge as stated in your original invoice. So if your rate was $1/page and you want to add a 10 page chapter then you will be charged $25 (reproduction) and $10 (10 pages).
Can you help me with my cover design?
We are not graphic artists so we cannot create a cover page for you from scratch. But if you can provide at least an image then we can add the title and your name on the cover. But if you need a professionally designed cover then we are partnered with cover design professionals that can help you. Just let us know and we will point you in the right direction.
Can you convert to other formats besides the Amazon format, like ePub?
Yes. We can also convert to most of the popular formats. Besides Amazon's mobi format the other popular format is ePub. With ePub (sometimes a few tweaks are required which we will do for you) you can upload your book to iTunes, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords etc. If you are interested in a special format let us know when you make your order.
Ok, I want to convert my manuscript to Kindle, what do I do now?
Go to the Order Page and send us your manuscript. Within 24 hours will will send you the exact cost for you manuscript conversion. Or if you have a few questions before you start, contact us and ask away.
I want to create a paperbook, can you help me?
Yes. We can format your manuscript into CreateSpace ready for printing PDFs. We will work with you to create a beautiful looking paperbook. And the best part is, because we created your Kindle book, we can create your paperbook for a lot less than anybody else. Here is more information about our paperbook creations service.
