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.

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.
I would like to thank everyone at Rowanvale Books for all their help in getting my first book published. In particular I would like to thank Tessa for taking me through the whole process up to publishing and then Bethan for all her hard work with the marketing etc. I would also like to thank Max for his excellent illustrations which have really enhanced the presentation of the book. I am looking forward to working with Rowanvale Books again with my next writing project. I would certainly recommend Rowanvale Books to other independent authors.Tom Kerr, author of Octave
