To make the process run as smoothly as possible, Amazon require the following information:
A valid Amazon account
We are happy to set up an account on your behalf using your email address although you may need to verify the account for us to finalise the process.
Please note that while we are able to do minor formatting changes in line with Amazon.com’s requirements, any editing or proofreading will need to be done prior to publishing and will incur additional costs. Your e-book must be in Word format.
A cover image
We are happy to create your cover image for you. However if you wish to design one yourself, the cover art should be a minimum ideal height/width ratio of 1.6 meaning a minimum of 625 pixels on the shortest side and 1000 pixels on the longest side. For best quality Amazon recommend 1563 pixels on the shortest side and 2500 pixels on the longest side.
A book description
Again, we are happy to write the book description for you although if you have some ideas about what you want you would like added to the description please let us know. If you are able to supply us with a testimonial from someone who has read your book, we would love to add it to your book description.
An about the author section
An about the author section is required for both the e-book and your author page. We are happy to put something together from an existing web page or if you prefer, you can write something yourself and send it through to us. Similar to your Amazon account, you may need to verify your author page via email.
An up to date photo
As part of our comprehensive publishing service, we are happy to create an Amazon author page for you at no extra cost. If you have a current photograph that you would like added to your page, please send it to us.
The following two sections are optional as we are happy to select these for you as part of the service we offer.
