Frequently Asked Questions

How should I prepare my eBook file for ePub conversion?

See our guidelines for basic ePub conversion.

How do I setup hyperlinks in my manuscript?

If you want text in your eBook to be linked to a website, we will need for you to insert those into your Word document before submitting your file. This ensures the text in your manuscript is accurate and the url addresses lead to the correct website.

PC Highlight the text you would like attached to the hyperlink. Go to Insert Tab > Hyperlinks (Globe with Chain icon). Towards the top of the window, you will see “Text to Display.” Type in how you would like the text to appear in your manuscript. Towards the bottom of the window, you will see “Address.” Paste the web address to which you would like the text linked. The “Text to Display” can differ from the actual url “Address.”

MAC Highlight the text you would like attached to the hyperlink. Go to Insert > Hyperlink. At the top of the window you will see “Link to:” Enter the web address in this field. Below that is the “Display” field. This is how the text will appear in your manuscript. The “Display” text can differ from the actual url “Link to” address.

Are there any content restrictions?

Material you did not create: If you did not create EVERYTHING in your book, the chances are you should not be publishing it. Items that may otherwise fall into public domain, fair use, creative commons or editorial purposes fall outside of our distribution partners guidelines. Political cartoons (that someone else drew), corporate logos, photos of celebrities, your favorite cartoon characters, lyrics from your favorite song, these are all going to cause you problems. If you are using something you did not create, you are required to have legal documentation showing your agreement with the content creator/copyright holder. Read more.
