A new client recently approached me with the following predicament ...

" I am currently attempting to make my self published book, into an eBook through Kobo books and discovering it is much harder than expected. Firstly according to Kobo they don’t accept PDF files, so I converted the file to a Word file and spent days correcting what did not convert successfully, until I believe I had it nearly looking how it should be ... So ready to go, after having all the information at hand, such as the eBook ISBN and even the CIP information, I got to the stage of uploading the file for it to be converted to an ePub file, but it was a disaster and the formatting was all over the place. "

Using a premium service like ours is very different to using a meatgrinder like those found at automated self-publishing websites. Australian eBook Publisher offers you the valuable services of an English-speaking, highly-trained human being who will look carefully and personally at your book and convert it to the desired formats.

I have spent the past two years learning all about ebook production and publishing, and have experienced some stress myself, even thought I started out with ten years of graphic design and web design experience!

Word is not a good piece of software to use for formatting websites or books— an ebook is essentially a bit of both. The knowledge my team and I have built into Australian eBook Publisher is described in part in this training video:

As you can see, there is more to it than copying and pasting, fixing some formatting and making fonts look nice in Word. In fact, ebooks are basically a mini-website, requiring not only expert typesetting knowledge, but also website and coding knowledge.

The team at Australian eBook Publisher are trained graphic designers, book designers and editors. We use software and computer systems that cost thousands of dollars to carefully set your work in the correct format. Free cookie-cutter crunchers like those at Smashwords and Kobo are automated robots that smunch your work through a meatgrinder, costing nobody anything (per job) and turning out a piece that matches closely what you put into it.
