website-headerWe work for authors & publishers to convert their books to high quality ready-to-sell digital versions, suitable for publishing directly (allowing you to retain 100% of the profit for life, get paid directly, avoid monthly fees, and retain full control for the life of your book) to the major marketplaces. You only pay a small affordable one-time fee, we provide the file formats and all the training to assist you in uploading your titles, allowing you to become the digital publisher. This means you get paid directly by Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple, Kobo, Google, and any other marketplace you choose to setup accounts with. This means you will never be hassled with an annual fee (or service account fee). There won’t be any middle man taking a percentage of YOUR royalties. You retain complete control which is essential to succeed in the world of eBooks!

I highly recommend you begin by reviewing our initial consultation page. It answers many of the initial questions we receive from new clients.

We are a FULL SERVICE author/publisher services firm, offering a value proposition that has been tuned to the needs of hundreds of authors & publishers we’ve had the pleasure to work with since 2009.  All of our work on a work-for-hire basis, meaning you retain all of the rights to your work (as it should be!).  In addition to eBook formatting & layout, we provide:

Pay only for the services you need.
Most conversions are completed within 7-14 days (turn around will depend on our backlog at the time of your order and the complexity of your title).

In addition to the services we provide, at no additional cost, you will also receive:

  • Over 3 hours of video tutorials to assist you with marketplace setup, optimization, and marketing.
  • 60 days of post-sale support through our Pixels To Profit website.
  • A copy of our ePub Template and with access to over 50 tutorials ($79 value).
  • 24/7 Access to our customer support portal

Unlike the large volume conversion shops, we are not satisfied until you are. You won’t be stuck with an eBook that doesn’t reflect how you the author intended it to look. You get to proof your eBook before it’s published and our conversions are guaranteed to be 100% compatible with the major eBook marketplaces.  Before a converted file is delivered to you, we test it on each device and always allow ample time to do a thorough review so you don’t have to.  If there’s ever a problem with the file, we’ll fix it for free.

Our pricing varies depending on the complexity of the book and the file type provided.  You can submit a bid request here.

You can also hire Brian Schwartz, the Kindle Expert for one-on-consulting through Clarity.fm:

Often I receive books to format/convert without a copyright page. I think it’s best that you have one to protect yourself and increase the credibility of your work. And while I’m no lawyer, the following is commonly used by the vast majority of authors/publishers. I also recommend putting your contract info on the Copyright page in case someone would like to request permission or license your work!

By virtue of you publishing it, it’s protected by copyright, however if you do want to register your eBook with the Copyright office, you can do so for $35 if you e-file. The website is: https://eco.copyright.gov/eService_enu and you will need to have a PDF version of your book available to submit.

You should include something like the following on the copyright page of your eBook:

Copyright 2014 © [AUTHOR NAME]

All rights reserved. No part of this book may be reproduced in any form or by any electronic or mechanical means, including information storage and retrieval systems, without written permission from the author, except in the case of a reviewer, who may quote brief passages embodied in critical articles or in a review.

Trademarked names appear throughout this book. Rather than use a trademark symbol with every occurrence of a trademarked name, names are used in an editorial fashion, with no intention of infringement of the respective owner’s trademark.

The information in this book is distributed on an “as is” basis, without warranty. Although every precaution has been taken in the preparation of this work, neither the author nor the publisher shall have any liability to any person or entity with respect to any loss or damage caused or alleged to be caused directly or indirectly by the information contained in this book.

If your book is fiction, add this statement:

This is a work of fiction. Names, characters, places, and incidents either are the product of the author’s imagination or are used fictitiously, and any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, events, or locales is entirely coincidental.


Hope that helps!

Happy new year – Brian
