E-book FAQs

What types of e-book publishing formats are there?


Here are the two most common formats available:

.epub

The EPub format is an open standard for e-books that was established by the International Digital Publishing Forum. This format is based on XHTML and XML, and is a popular format choice for a wide range of devices. When you take advantage of Rutledge Hill’s e-book publishing service, your book will be available in this format, which is compatible with Barnes and Noble’s Nook, Kobo, Apple Books, and Google Play Books.

.mobi/ .prc

This format, an open e-book standard that uses XHTML, JavaScript and frames, is for Mobipocket e-books. The files can be viewed with many PDAs and smartphones. At Rutledge Hill, we generate this format so that your e-book is available for Kindle e-readers at Amazon.com.
