We Make Your eBooks in HTML

We make your books  in HTML, a markup language that is also used to make webpages.  What you get back from us are two complete ebook files, one ready to be uploaded to Amazon ("MOBI" format), and one ready to be uploaded to Nook and other ebook retailers ("ePUB format").  What this means is that we do not give you back a “revised” or “reformatted” Word file.

Which Means That You Do NOT Get a Word File Back When We're Done

When we get your file, we immediately start work to convert your manuscript or book into HTML.  As explained in the next section, we work in HTML, and not in Word.  This means that there is no “final” Word file to give back to you when the work is done.  Upon request, we can make a final Word file from the final, approved ePUB file.  This incurs an additional charge, but many authors like to do this so that they have the file for any future needs. 

 

Phone Call Alert! 

(Please read, thanks.)

Due to the COVID-19 onslaught, we currently cannot take incoming phone calls.  

 

A notification about phone calls:  due to the COVID-19 plague, we've significantly increased our incoming inquiries--nearly double our usual volume--and the number of incoming inquiries by phone has been literally overwhelming.  Although most writers will say that their call "will only take 15 minutes," the truth is, that after 10 years of doing this, most author inquiry calls take an hour.  45 minutes at best. I'm currently receiving 7-10 calls/day, and due to that, I've had to stop accepting incoming phone calls, which my voicemail will tell you. You can leave a message--I can't call you back without one--and if a call is needed, I will of course call you.  But we have very complete and extensive email replies, handouts and our website is very informative. Almost all the questions that I receive during a call are actually already answered on our site, or are, in fact, publishing questions, not questions about our services, what we do, what we offer, or the like.  I already handle between 90-130 emails/day, as it is. I can't handle that many emails and take 7-10 hours of calls each day. I can't. So, in order to be able to answer this huge email volume, to help the greatest number of people, with my time, I've had to stop accepting calls.  I'm sorry, but that's just how it is. I'm in the process of setting up a call-appointment function, for free 15-minute calls to answer questions from new prospective customers and longer paid sessions for folks who generally want consulting on "publishing," generally (and for prospective kids' book publishers, as a special category of paid consulting).  But that functionality isn't yet set up. I hope to get that working the 3rd week of July, sometime.  

Thank you for your understanding.
