Use basic text files to upload.Our experts have learned that eBook formatting works best when authors can supply original files in .doc, .html or .txt file formats.
Don’t use tabs or the space bar to format paragraphs or individual lines.
Use the format paragraph menu or the alignment buttons in the toolbar of your text-editing program.
Use standard fonts for your document, like Times New Roman or Courier New. Don’t use very large or very small font sizes. We recommend 12pt. font size for body text and 14-18pt. for chapter titles.
Resize large images to 300 pixels high if you would like them to display in-line with text.
Do all image resizing work outside of the document,, then reinsert them before saving.
All images must be in .png, .jpg, or .tif format, 72 dpi, and in RGB color mode.* Cover and full-page images: 800-1000 pixels tall by 550-700 pixels wide. Logos or simple images: 75 - 100pixels high.
Don’t wrap text around images.All images (except full-page images) should be set “in-line”with text.
