eBook file conversions

We take the stress and confusion out of ebook file formats.  There are many different e-readers; almost all require their own format.  If you have no desire to learn the coding languages of html and/or CSS then our conversion packages are for you.

Our conversions are hand coded, we do not use one-size-fits all conversion software.

You send us your Word or PDF file and we will convert it to Kindle/Mobipocket and epub for you.  These two ebook formats are the most popular and most versatile, which will cover you for the global market and multiple devices.

Fiction – Novels & Short Stories

These types of books usually do not have complex formatting and as such we can offer a flat fee.  This fee also includes up to 5 images.

Under 18,000 words $ 180.00
Under 300 pages $ 240.00
More than 300 pages – Call for a quote

At this stage we are appraising poetry & screenplays on an individual basis. For these kinds of projects please contact us for a quote.

Non-Fiction

This is where a lot more formatting comes into play.  Non-fiction books tend to have images, tables, footnotes, sidebars, glossaries, foreign symbols and other complex formatting issues that make giving a flat fee difficult.

To give an indication of price, most projects come in at around $2 – $4 a page.  Since each non-fiction project is different we need to assess the complexity of your book to give you an official quote.

Natator Publishing offers low cost group workshops and one-on-one consultations to educate authors on self-publishing in this digital age. We have no financial interest in the books themselves, but we are interested in helping writers take charge of their book’s journey.  We believe that it really is possible for anyone to self-publish their book, on their own, without forking out thousands of dollars to a middle-man venture that will take a fee to ‘publish’ their book for them.
 

eBook consults 

You can distribute your ebook all around the world.  It takes a little time and a lot of know how.  There are many things to consider when distributing your works.

  • Do you need an ISBN?
  • How does copyright work?
  • What about DRM (digital rights management)?
  • How do you get it on all the Amazons?
  • What about Apple?
  • Ever heard of Smashwords?

We’ll take the mystery out of the process and explain how to take charge of your ebook’s journey in a language that you’ll understand. At the end of you should have a workable plan to help you on your e-publishing journey.  Group workshops are also available (limited to six attendees to maximise individual attention).
 

Self publishing consults

Publishing your own work has never been so easy.  Print on demand has taken the financial sting out of the self-publishing experience.  If you would like to take this road we can help you avoid some of the pitfalls you might encounter along the way.

Some of the areas covered are:

  • Comparing the top print of demand printers, what they offer and what they cost.
  • The limitations of print on demand options, what CANT they do?
  • Print file preparation – how much technical experience do you have?
  • Distribution – global & local
  • Marketing & promotions
  • Author platforms, including brands, social media options, blogs and more.

We’ll take the mystery out of the self-publishing process and explain how to take charge of your book’s journey in a language that you’ll understand. At the end of you should have a workable plan to help you on your self publishing journey.  Group workshops are also available (limited to six attendees to maximise individual attention).
