Formatting eBooks from a print book can be a pain. Quark and The Perseus Books Group have teamed up to help streamline the process. The two companies have created a new publishing software for book production that will let publishers create print and eBooks through the same platform.
Here is more from the press release: “Through its Constellation service, Perseus will use Quark’s dynamic publishing solution to simplify and automate the process of publishing books across formats. A core feature of the Quark solution is the ability to create a single-source document that can be delivered across multiple types of media. The original book file is created in an e-book compatible format that is ready for export to the Web, social media, and mobile devices without further conversion.”
The software is slated for release this fall.
