Want to get your eBook into Amazon and iBookstore in time for the holiday shopping rush? Here are some general guidelines to ensure your eBook is available for sale by early December, 2012:
Submit your ePub file and check out by Friday, Nov. 23, 2012.
(Includes eBook conversion)—Submit your .doc, .pdf, or other electronic file and check out by Friday, Nov. 16, 2012.
(includes eBook conversion and ePub proofs)—Submit your .doc, .pdf or other electronic file and check out by Friday, Nov. 9, 2012.
Important: By following this schedule, your eBook should be available for sale at Amazon and iBookstore by early December, 2012. Other stores’ timelines will vary and often take additional time.These suggested timelines are guidelines only. Your eBook may be up for sale faster than times quoted. Standard and Premium timelines assume a simple file conversion to ePub and .mobi. If your book requires more complex conversions (photographs, illustrations, etc.) your eBook production will take longer than quoted above.
