eBook Design

Inkwater can create an eBook from a basic Word document, or we can convert print-ready files of an already published book to the eBook format. Three different eBook formats are available, including Kindle eBook, ePub, and PDF. We custom design each eBook in a professionally published style so that it matches the design of the printed version. An eBook can be added to any book design or publication package for an additional cost.

Custom eBook Design (Kindle, ePub, & PDF) – $799.00

For authors looking to publish exclusively in eBook format, we offer an Custom eBook Design package. We custom design the interior and full-color cover of the book with the author’s help in the creative process. Once the book is designed, the author has two opportunities to review electronic proofs and make any remaining changes to the text. When the final proof has been accepted, we upload the files to Amazon.com, iTunes, and Kobo.com. The author receives a one-hour marketing strategy consultation with our marketing director. The author receives royalties on all eBooks sold.
