Digital Formatting & Distribution (eBook)

An eBook is a completely electronic version of a published book that can be downloaded to a single laptop or desktop computer or other digital device, such as a handheld PDA. Trafford will publish your book in this digitized format, enabling it to reach more customers than ever.

Trafford will format and submit your ePub file for the Amazon Kindle, ® Reader, Google Play Books, Barnes Noble nookTM, Kobo Books and iBooks Store** , which is available on the iPhone and iPad application.

Please note:

  • ePub files cannot be created from PDFs. To create a market-ready ePub file, Trafford must have the source file in a Microsoft Word or Adobe InDesign file.

  • Trafford will make every reasonable effort to make the formatting of the ePub edition reflect the format of the print edition; however, some design elements are not supported in the ePub format. Trafford is not responsible for making changes to the design of the ePub edition.

  • You can purchase this service by selecting one of the publishing packages that includes it. This service is not available as an add-on to other packages or for previously published books.

Disclaimer: Press Ready Files (PDF) or designed interior file sizes larger than 650 MB will not be available through Amazon.

*Apple reserves the right to accept or deny content for availability on the iBooks Store.

**To meet submission standards, please review your manuscript thoroughly to ensure spelling accuracy and correct rendering of any diacritical mark such as tilde, caret, acute accent, or the like.
Books written in languages other than Spanish or English are not submitted to iBooks Store due to Apple formatting restrictions. We are currently still trying to work with Apple to resolve this issue.
