E-book Publishing


Digital Formatting and Distribution (e-book) allows for your book’s content to be digitally reformatted for the leading digital devices in the market today. Once formatted into an ePub file, Partridge Africa will submit your book for Google Play Books, Barnes & Noble NookTM, Rakuten Kobo Inc., and iBooks Store*.

With this format, you can reach more readers as it will be made available to tech-savvy, digital content buyers across the globe. Partridge Africa makes your book available in e-book format across all our publishing packages. For more information, please visit our FAQ page under the Digital Formatting and Distribution group.

Please Note:

  • ePub files cannot be created from PDFs. To create a market-ready ePub file, Partridge Africa must have the source file in a Microsoft Word or Adobe InDesign file.
  • Partridge Africa will make every reasonable effort to make the formatting of the ePub edition reflect the format of the print edition; however, some design elements are not supported in the ePub format. Partridge Africa is not responsible for making changes to the design of the ePub edition.

Disclaimer: Press Ready Files (PDF) or designed interior file sizes larger than 10 MB are ineligible for this service.

*To meet submission standards, please review your manuscript thoroughly to ensure spelling accuracy and correct rendering of any diacritical mark such as tilde, caret, acute accent, or the like. Books written in languages other than Spanish or English are not submitted to iBooks Store due to Apple formatting restrictions. We are currently still trying to work with Apple to resolve this issue.
