    Fixed layout eBooks

    If it’s important that your images and text appear in a specific and consistent way, fixed layout formatting is for you. Perfect for children’s books, graphic novels, and cookbooks. 

    What is Fixed Layout?

    Standard eBooks (ePub and .mobi) feature a dynamic (flowable) layout for text and images. This means that your eBook will look different when viewed on different eReaders.

    Fixed Layout files quite literally “affix“ images and text to exact spots on each electronic page--just like their printed book counterparts—so that they look the same, regardless of which reader you use.

    Does your eBook need a Fixed Layout?

    Most eBooks do not require a Fixed Layout file. Fixed Layout files are only needed when it’s important that the images and text appear in a specific and consistent way.

    These books are usually good candidates for a Fixed Layout conversion:

    • Illustrated children’s books
    • Cookbooks
    • Biographies
    • Graphic novels
    • Textbooks and technical manuals
    • ...and any book that relies on a heavily-designed, static presentation, full-page images, or text that overlaps with images.


    Oba Kunta Octopus Fixed Layout for iBooks — Just KShs. 19,99 ($199) plus KShs. 300 ($3) per page.

    The technical experts at Oba Kunta octopus can convert your high-resolution PDF files into an eBook with a Fixed Layout designed especially for the iBooks app. This will ensure that your eBook displays the same way whether it’s being viewed on an iPad or an iPhone. (Important: This is for iBooks only. We do not currently produce Fixed Layout files for the Kindle Fire or the Barnes & Noble Nook reader.)

    Need help preparing your files?

    There are a few simple things you can do to prepare your manuscript so your eBook will look exactly the way you want it to. 

    We take no commission

    Oba Kunta octopus is unique among self-publishing companies. Every author gets paid 100% of net sales from online retailers. We take no commission. After your net sales are collected from our retail partners, we pay you every last cent. No hidden fees. No charges. Nothing. Plus we pay every week, so there's no waiting for your money. You set the payout amount and when your account has reached that amount we will automatically pay you on the following Monday, via the method you select. This is online self-publishing made easy.

    ISBN and Barcode

    Add a unique ISBN and Barcode for KShs. 3000.

    An ISBN is a unique identifier for your book, providing publishing information and giving retailers a way to report your book’s sales. Bookstores simply cannot sell your book unless you’ve got one. Important: You will need a separate ISBN for your printed books if you are planning on selling them in stores. Simply add an ISBN when checking out.
