eBook FAQs

What is an eBook?

An eBook is a digital version of a book designed to be read on eReader devices like the Amazon Kindle. Most eBooks are reflowable which gives the reader the control of fonts style and size. Books that are image heavy such as children’s books or cookbooks, are made into fixed layout eBooks. Fixed layout eBooks look identical to the printed book, but can be opened on eReader devices. Depending on your genre we can help you select the right eBook conversion for you!
