How much does it cost for e-book conversion?

Since every book differs significantly in reference to the number of pages, illustrations present other formatting specific considerations it is highly useful to review the book once before giving a final quote. Also there are some very important factors like the volume of books that we have in hand for conversion which needs to be considered by us before giving a final start date / timeline. We have a large team of ebook coders who specialize in hand coding ebooks instead of deploying automated conversion tools which provide badly formatted ebooks and additionally they are not acceptable to most ebook stores.
