It’s super-easy to work with us. We accept manuscripts primarily by email – you can send any documents under 20MB to: ldespain@cox.net. For larger documents, we can use Dropbox. If you have any questions, please email ldespain@cox.net or ldespain@ebookconverting.com and speak to Lisa. When you send your files, we’ll assume you’re sending the latest, edited, final manuscript. While we never like to charge more than you’ve been quoted, excessive file edits may incur additional charges. To submit content to convert to ePub/Mobi, we’ll need some basic files:

To convert from PDF:

  • PDF of the document
  • JPG of the cover

To convert from InDesign:

  • InDesign complete file, including image and font folders – InDesign CS3, 4, 5, 5.5, 6, and CC accepted
  • PDF of the document (to double-check desired final formatting). If you are not able to do this, we can usually create the PDF for you.
  • JPG of the cover

To convert from Word:

  • .doc or docx of the file
  • JPG of the cover

To convert from Quark:

  • Your Quark file (will convert to InDesign before exporting to ePub, just FYI)
  • PDF, if you have it
  • JPG of the cover

If you would like an ISBN to be added to your ebook’s metadata, go ahead and send one. ISBNs are not required to sell on most ebook outlets.
