Read this page carefully before purchase

Delivery:
1-2 weeks from time of purchase (Please remember to check again if you bookmark this page for the future)

Discounts:
Multiple ebook conversion packages are not currently available through our web form. We do not offer discounts on less than three books. All files should be ready for conversion at time of purchase. If you need more than one ebook converted and want to request more information, please contact services@crimsonmelodies.com

Purchase of a single conversion can be upgraded to a MOBI + EPUB if done so within three days (72 hours) of original purchase.

Restrictions:
We specialize in converting FICTION books. If you have a NON-FICTION book you’d like us to consider, please contact us at services@crimsonmelodies.com before purchase.

- no charts or tables (unless they are contained in images)
- no footers or other “on page” reference elements
- all images must be at least 250px x 250px
- cover image must be at least 1400px on the smallest side, with a 1.5:1 or 1.6:1 ratio (meaning a 1400px wide cover image would need a height of either 2100px or 2240px)

Prepare your book for conversion:

- clearly marked chapters and sections
- use [***] (without the brackets) on a single line for scene breaks during chapters
- use a consistent method of paragraph formatting throughout your manuscript
- do NOT use extra spaces to adjust line or character placement; use only the alignment functions of your word program
- use a standard font like Times New Roman or Arial or Courier New
- use 10-12pt font for the body text, use 14-18pt font for chapter or other headings
- be aware symbols may not convert properly; this is one reason to use a standard front

Your book will not be converted until these requirements are met. A new submission file will be requested if any requirement is not met. Resubmission requests will outline what changes are needed.

We recommend the following:

1. Crimson Melodies does NOT proofread your book. Proof your file for syntax, grammar, and spelling. Once your ebook has been converted, we will not make changes and you will need to purchase another conversion.
2. Include details about any formatting you may have struggled with while preparing your file for submission. This can save time and prevent errors by letting our formatters know what to keep an eye out for.
3. Create a copyright page and ensure it appears within the first 1-5 pages of your book file. Click for an example of what this should look like: Copyright Page Example (Please note: Our copyright page example is only a guide. It should not be used as a substitute for understanding copyright as it pertains to any published work. Crimson Melodies is not the publisher of your work.)

Our goal is to make every conversion error free. We will not send you any MOBI or EPUB that has not been thoroughly checked. If, for some reason, there is a problem with the files you receive, contact services@crimsonmelodies.com with the subject line “PROBLEMS WITH [the title of your book]” and we will work with you to resolve the issue.
