For many BookBaby authors, understanding the nuances of eBook formatting – like fixed vs. standard layout – can be a challenge. Gino Vasquez and Kyle Fadigan from our eBook Convertion team play an important role in many BookBaby authors' lives, converting manuscripts from programs such as Word or Pages into formats that work on eReaders.
There are different types of book editing – including proofreading, copy-editing, and developmental editing – for different stages of the publication process. You should be aware of what kind of editing your manuscript needs and what is involved in each type.
