At Oxford eBooks, we understand what it takes to make a successful eBook. We’ve been doing it for 10 years now and have it down to a fine art. We use a delicate blend of technology and artistic talent to turn your original manuscript or printed book into a nicely formatted eBook file that you can sell. We don’t believe that eBook conversions can be truly accomplished by pushing a button, it takes skill and experience to know what works and what doesn’t. We use our own software tools and processes to do most of the heavy-lifting so that we can be fast and efficient, and on top of that we hand-craft and check your eBook’s design and layout giving a result that we’re confident you will be delighted with and at a price that makes it all worthwhile.
