***eBook files cannot be created from PDFs. To create a market-ready ePub file, Certa Publishing must have the source file in a Microsoft Word or Adobe InDesign file. Certa Publishing will make every reasonable effort to have the formatting of the eBook edition reflect the format of the print edition; however, some design elements are not supported in the ePub format. Certa Publishing is not responsible for making changes to the design of the eBook edition. The file size of an image-based book and/or color book is too large to be placed in the eBook format. Therefore, Certa Publishing can only publish black & white text-based books in the eBook format.
Disclaimer: Print Ready Files (PDF), image-based books, color books, or designed interior file sizes larger than 10 MB are ineligible for this service.
****Author must agree to supply up to 30 copies of their book for review. Author might not actually give away that many, but has to be willing to if the demand is there. All S&H is to be paid by the author.
