ECPA's Rush To Press

BISG and Firebrand present four city training of eBook Ninjas: Ebook Production and QA 
Classes in Austin, the Bay Area, Chicago, and NYC

Have you ever seen a one-star review on Amazon that criticized the quality or readability of the Kindle file—but had nothing to do with the book’s content? This full-day workshop will ensure that your readers can judge your book on its merits, not how it looks on their ereaders. 

High-quality ebook files have a direct impact on reader satisfaction and on your ebook sales. Stay ahead of what you need to know, whether you use an outsource vendor or create ebook files yourself, despite the challenges that result from constantly changing devices, formats, and retailer requirements.

This unique one-day workshop is intended for anyone independently publishing ebooks, anyone on staff in the production and design department of publishers large and small, or anyone employed as an ebook developer.

It will be offered in four cities this spring:

  • Austin, TX | April 9, 2015
  • New York, New York | May 7, 2015
  • San Francisco Bay Area, CA | May 15, 2015   
  • Chicago, IL | June 15, 2015
