New Leaf's Easy eBook program is not limited to conversion. We offer full distribution and sales with the Easy eBook program. Signing with New Leaf and joining the Easy eBook program will launch your eBook publishing adventure.
Once our quote has been accepted by a publisher or author and an agreement is signed, the title is immediately sent for conversion. Most conversions take no more than two weeks depending on the volume of work in progress. Illustrated books may take longer.
Illustrated books will require individual image files in PDF format to insure the quality of the ePub file. You will be responsible for furnishing the metadata* for your title. Someone at New Leaf will work with you with your metadata needs.
You may choose to handle file conversions through another service in which case there will still be a $30 ingestion fee.
A word of caution, converting your book files to the required e-book formats is not as simple as some would have you believe. Your books must display properly on all of the various e-reader platforms such as Kindle, Nook, Kobo, Sony, various Apple devices and various Android devices. This requires experience and skill, and we work with a company that uses a six step process to ensure that conversions are accurate and as close to the original formatting as possible.
Should your files prove problematic and require fixes by your conversion partner, there will be a $100 charge for each subsequent ingestion attempt.
*Metadata is the specifications of your book and include ISBN, price, page count, author name, description and rights information.
