Hi there Freelancers
I have a 124k word M.S typed in WORD doc and ready to convert into file to upload to amazon kindle uploading . To do so will need the following done. If you think you can help please apply and we can talk further, big thanks for your time.
Like everyone involved in the book i'm very happy to include your name and URL in the book. If it sells well at least you may get more clients contacting you :)
1. TO READ WELL ON ALL KINDLE/OTHER DEVICES
Will you test on your end on all devices (as i will do the same when you send me the
completed files) ?
2-FILE SIZE REDUCTION/COMPRESSION
Aim is to get book filesize down from 6MB to 1MB or lower possible size (may be hard)
To assist ive done the below, and can do more
A- I've put most images in GIF format to compress, is this ok?
B- Should graphs/charts be turned into images also ?
3- TABLE OF CONTENTS LINKED + PAGE STARTS + FORMATS
A - i assume table of contents are linked to the relevant sections ?
B - Do i need to indicate where i want pages to start (i.e you know how when reading
physical books its a new sentence at start of each page turned, not a continuation of
sentence from the previous one)
C - What file formats will your produce ? epub, mobi ...?
4- PREVIEW OF BOOK / HOW MANY FIXES ALLOWED?
please confirm if you will make fixes if your converted file is different than the WORD doc sent to you? How many such fixes will you allow for ?
5 - ARE EDITS ALLOWED OR AT COST ?
Do you allow for minor edits....without additional cost... if so please define a minor vs major edit ?
5- WILL WE USE BELOW KINDLE PREVIEWER TO CONFIRM THE FINAL FILE ?
or is there another service...?
6- IS SIGNING AN NDA ok ?
7- TIME FRAME
Given the above, and your own schedule, how many days are we estimating this done ?
8- BONUS/PENALTY SYSTEM
Will you accept a bonus/penalty system? So if you agree to a completion date you also choose a Bonus $ daily amount. If task done satisfactorily before completion date, your paid the bonus $ x n.o of days. If its late, then the same daily amount $ is deducted from final payment..... If so what daily amount are you happy with ?
The above simply acts as a deterrent to past bad experiences where freelancers have taken on our jobs yet have continued way past deadline. In all jobs to date with this system no penalty has yet to be applied, and most times the project is done by the completion date.Where a delay from me occurs this does not count against you or the time-frame remaining.
9- Please write "Green Dragon" as first words in reply, helps know you have seen whats
Thanks for your time in replying to the above and i hope to work with you asap :)
