Bookalope converts your book

Bookalope is a web service for document analysis and conversion for XML Workflow Publishing without the tedious XML exposure. It structures, cleans, and converts book manuscripts into e-books for Nook, iPad, or Kindle; into PDF print books; as well as other file formats for a continued professional editing and design process using Adobe InDesign or Word.

If you are publisher or a freelance e/print book designer, you will find that Bookalope improves the efficiency and flexibility of your conversion and design process by great margins. If you are a self-publishing author who has just finished a manuscript, you will find Bookalope helpful to turn your manuscript into a functioning e-book or a well-designed print book with just a few mouse clicks.

Of course, all e-books validate and pass the standard tests of the publishing industry.

How Bookalope’s book conversion works

Converting your book is as easy as 1-2-3, and works with almost any text document format. You don’t even have to clean up or prepare your manuscript, Bookalope does this for you and does it very well!

Watch our Video Tutorials to learn in great detail how Bookalope works. You can also integrate our Bookalope tools into your own publishing work flow by using our web API, documented and available on Github.


Pricing for book conversion depends on the format of the final book as per the table below. Prices may change as we evolve our Bookalope service, and as we add more book design styles and other features.

Please contact us for further details, or if you are interested in bulk pricing or flat fees. Note that Bookalope’s prices for the web API are different than website prices because we have not yet exposed all of Bookalope’s features through our API.
