Ebook Conversion

High quality valid file creation is a critical process that requires attention to detail. Corrupt files equal low readership. Books International stays current on the latest file-development processes and requirements of the various vendors and ebook sellers. We offer high quality file creation valid for all major vendors the first time and provide you with a full-year guarantee on all your submitted files.

If you give us your book, we’ll create ePUB, Mobi and ePDF files, which includes proper tagging and online-search capabilities, to make your ebook-publishing experience seamless and help maximize your ebook distribution potential.
