 1. Can you explain the eBook formats to me?

Answer: There are four basic formats offered on this website for sale. A MOBI file is the standard format for the Amazon Kindle (as well as Kindle apps for iPad, PC, Mac, etc.). MOBI files can ONLY be read using a Kindle or Kindle software. EPUB files can be read on the Barnes & Noble nook, iBooks app on the iPad, nook software for PC and Mac, and a wide variety of other eReaders around the world. PDF is a common format for documents, and can be read with the free Adobe Reader. HTML files can be read in any internet browser, including (but not limited to) Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Safari. At times the formatting in the HTML files will not be as aesthetically pleasing as other formats due to the limitations of the HTML format.

 2. How do I access my purchased eBooks on this website?

Answer: Make sure that you are logged in using your eLectio username and password. If you are logged in, you should notice a horizontal menu bar at the top of the page above the banner. One of those options should be \"AVAILABLE DOWNLOADS.\" Simply click on that button, and you will be taken to the downloads for the eBooks you  have purchased. For a more detailed description, click HERE.

 3. Why do I need to sign up for an account to purchase an eBook?

Answer: If you have any issues with your eBook download, you can always contact us to help with your issues at info [at] electiopublishing [dot] com. However, without having a record of who has purchased which eBooks, it would be impossible for us to verify that you had indeed purchased the eBook.

 4. Can you recommend an eReader?

Answer: We cannot specifically recommend or endorse one over the other. They each have their own strengths and weaknesses. However, if you are in the market for an eReader, make sure that you evaluate each one based on its capabilities and how it matches your needs. If you only wish to use it for reading books, clearly there is no reason to spend extra money on a tablet that is generally much more expensive and has far more capabilities than just a simple eReader.

 5. Do I have to own a Kindle, nook, iPad or other eReader/tablet to enjoy your books?

Answer: No you do not. Please see our blog post here for an explanation.

 6. I purchased a paperback from eLectio but don\'t have it yet. What do I need to do?

Typically we ask that you allow two weeks for your order to arrive (if you live in North America). If you live on another continent, please allow an additional 1-2 weeks. While your order can sometimes come faster than that, shipping times can vary significantly. If it has been longer that that and you have not received your book(s), please contact us at: info [at] electiopublishing [dot] com and put \"book order\" in the email subject line. We will be glad to check your order status for you.

In addition, if you log in to the eLectio store, you should be able to see past orders and shipment tracking information for those orders.

 7. I have a great manuscript I wrote and I want to mail it to you. What\'s your address for me to mail you my book?

We do not accept any submissions via postal service, or any other type of physical mailing or shipment. We suggest you convert the manuscript to a high-quality digital file, and follow the submission guidelines listed on this site.

 8. I would like to contact one of your authors. How do I do that?

While we cannot give out any personal information regarding our authors, we do recommend social media as an excellent way to reach her/him and offer compliments or ask questions.

 9. I have a great book I just finished writing but I don\'t know how the process works. Do I need an agent?

No, you don\'t. We work with agents and appreciate all they do. But you are welcome to submit your manuscript to eLectio directly.

 10. I have started writing a book and know how I am going to finish it. Can I send you a proposal or the first three chapters to see if it works for eLectio?

While some publishing houses accept proposals or parts of works, we ask that you only send a work for consideration after it has been completed. We will evaluate the work in its entirety and make a decision based on that. Unfortunately, proposals and partial works cannot be considered.

 11. I\'m really excited about the book I wrote. Can you tell me all about how the process works?

Many new authors are excited about the various aspects of book publication and sales. However, the first step is to get the book published. Each company varies some on how the process is handled after manuscript acceptance. If your work is chosen for publication, we will work with you every step of the way.

 12. My religious views are complicated. Is that a factor when I submit my manuscript?

No. We simply ask that your manuscript follows our submission guidelines; it is the manuscript that is evaluated for publication consideration.

 13. Do you work with churches, clubs, or other organizations that may be interested in buying a book or devotional in a large quantity?

Yes. If you are involved with a church or other group that may be interested in buying a large quantity of a particular study or book at a discount (the minimum purchase amount and discount rate varies depending on group type and book needed), please contact us at: info [at] electiopublishing [dot] com. In the email heading, please put \"group rate\" as the subject heading. Please include your full name, group name, email address, and best phone number to reach during regular business hours. We will have a representative contact you within two business days to discuss your need with you.

 14. Someone told me that my life story was amazing. I\'ve thought about writing it down but never written anything before. Any advice?

Start writing. Some of the best books ever written were by individuals who had never written anything before in their life. At some point, you may want to consider it for publication. But you never know until you start writing. If nothing else, the story will be written down for future generations.

 15. I have another question that isn\'t listed here. How would I get that answered?

You are welcome to fill out the fields in the \"Contact Us\" section if there is an important question/concern that is not answered here. However, most answers to commonly asked questions can be found throughout this site. Thank you for taking a few minutes to look around. We are always adding great new works and updating our content, so we hope you\'ll come back often!
