eBook Publishing Service

The eBook Publishing Service is a vital part of your eBook Publication Package. eBooks are a hugely popular way of testing the popularity of a new book, and eBook publishing can be a very cost-effective option. 

In a nutshell

The eBook revolution has changed the publishing landscape beyond all recognition in recent years, and many authors are taking advantage of this. Our eBook Publishing Service converts your book into the three main eBook formats, and includes the formatting and e-conversion processes (generally as part of an eBook Publication Package). We also take care of the metadata and distribution for you, and once your eBook is converted, potential sales are unlimited.

What it costs

The price of this service depends on a variety of factors about your book including word count, number of images included, level of formatting.

Includes

Internal and cover formatting, e-conversion into all three major eBook formats (ePub, mobi, pdf), ISBN assignment for all three formats, and global distribution.

Why do we do this?

The eBook Publishing Service means that your manuscript can be available to eBook readers across the world – in an indefinite supply, thanks to global distribution.

Amateur eBook publishing can be difficult and problematic, as errors can often arise in the coding that may cause the files to be rejected by retailers. Tell-tale signs of a poor quality eBook include errors in the eBook coding and messy formatting and/or hyperlinking. As we use eBook publishing specialists to convert our files, we are able to guarantee the quality of the eBooks produced. All eBooks supplied via our distributor to the online retailers are DRM protected, which restricts non-permitted sharing, copying and printing, so you're in safe hands!

How do we do this?

Your cover and internal files will be formatted to ensure they are suitable for conversion into eBook formats. eBook retailers can be very picky about the specifications of the files, such as how many words per page, spacing and sizing, not to mention the use of external links, so it is important that these are formatted and presented correctly when eBook publishing.

We convert the text into the three main eBook formats (ePub, mobi and pdf) with the help of our eBook publishing specialists. This is to ensure that the potential target audience of the book is not limited to owners of Amazon Kindle devices, for example, like it is with many self-publishing platforms, such as Createspace.

All eBook formats are allocated their own unique ISBN. This is a legal requirement for the sale of published works. The text’s metadata, together with the publication date, will be sent to Nielsen Book Data for inclusion in their database used by the book selling trade. This information is used by bookshops/wholesalers for ordering purposes.

Once eBook files have been produced and converted, these eBooks can sell indefinitely all across the world without any reprinting and distribution costs.

Rowanvale blow me away every time I work with them, their wonderful service and attention to detail at each and every point of the publishing process is heartwarming. They are incredible human beings and I cannot commend them or the work they do highly enough...

As every devoted wordsmith knows, the words we pen often come not just from our love of and passion for words, but from years of study, development, practice, writing and re-writing. Our words are the amalgamation of our attempts to excavate, dissect, explore, breathe in and listen to life. They are a reflection of all we have discovered and of all we have yet to learn. Sometimes those words echo aching hope and bitter disappointment. Other times they sing, dance, laugh and paint wonderful pictures before the eyes of our souls.
Words can and do bring revelation, understanding, health and wellbeing, and often, even though they may challenge us, they also help to restore our faith in life, in humanity.
With all this in mind it is easy to see why it is imperative to find the right publishers to work with. Publishers that not only understand and get where you, as a wordsmith are coming from, but who also believe in you and the work that you do.
For me Rowanvale Books are that publisher.
With a level of professionalism that is second to none, from the very start of the publishing process, right to the finish, they work to ensure that not only the care and support of the author is excellent, but also the end product, your book. Beautifully and lovingly put together in a way that truly captures both the spirit and the heart of your original vision.
Rowanvale Books does what it promises to do. I would like to wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone who is serious about getting their work published.
Rowanvale Books; the future of publishing is safe in their hands.…

…From start to finish it has been a pleasure and a delight to work with Rowanvale with excellent support with such a high professional standard... I couldn't recommend Rowanvale, and all their staff, highly enough for what has been such an exciting and enjoyable process… My journey with Rowanvale started in 2014, after the many questions I asked them about their publishing process, and everything they had to offer. From the very start it was lovely to receive such support, together with their prompt and efficient replies which outlined what I think is such a great publishing package from a great team of people. My book has now been delivered after a really exciting and enjoyable time with Rowanvale. I’m so delighted with the results, the attention to detail, the problem solving, and I just couldn’t be happier about the whole experience. Amazing.

Rowanvale Books are a total joy to work with and it is my privilege and good fortune to be able to call them my publishers. Keep Up The Great Work :) Thank You and God Bless you All. #SuperStars :)
