Books in an electronic format, also called e-books, are quickly becoming a popular way for readers to read books. With our E-book Publishing, your e-book can be downloaded onto an electronic reading device, such as the Amazon Kindle. These devices are portable reading devices that allow readers access to thousands of books, blogs, newspapers and magazines on a screen that reads just like a real book. Once your book is published, it will be formatted as an e-book so you can reach even more readers. Your readers can take your book with them wherever they go without having to carry a physical copy of your book. In addition to the wider audience you can reach with this service, you will also receive royalties on each e-book sold.
Currently, our E-book Publishing is compatible with the following devices: Amazon Kindle, the Sony Reader, the Barnes & Noble eReader, Nook, Google Play Books, iBooks Store*, and Kobo Books.
ePub files cannot be created from PDFs. To create a market ready ePub file, Balboa Press must have the source file in a Microsoft Word or Adobe InDesign file.
The file size of a colour book is too large to be placed in the e-book format. Therefore, Balboa Press can only publish black and white books in the e-book format.
We 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. Balboa Press is not responsible for making changes to the design of the ePub edition.
You can sign up for 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, colour books, or designed interior file sizes larger than 10 MB are ineligible for this service.
