  1. Will David Kudler be covering the production of fixed format layout or only the usual standard eBooks (ePub and .mobi) with (flowable) layout for text and images? All my books are graphic intensive. I need to find a designer who I can pay to convert into the fixed format, the Word files and jpgs I used to create manuscripts that were published as picture books by Atheneum in New York and for which I now have revision of rights.
    I gave up my membership in BAIPA because I could find no help with this question. Pathways to Publishing was of no help either.
    Thank you,
    Victoria

    • Victoria, what a great question! Yes, I can discuss this — though the process of creating fixed format ebooks is not a simple one, so we probably won’t be able to solve your problem completely — you should at least have enough to move toward a solution.

      May I ask you to bring the books, in whatever formats you have them — physical and digital? If I can help, I will.
