[OS X TeX] LaTeX conversion to eBook?

Some years ago a friend and I retyped, edited and otherwise modernized an old book in LaTeX (to PDF) for its subsequent reissue (The Einstein Theory of Relativity by Lillian and Hugh Lieber). The firm that reissued it, Paul Dry Books of Philadelphia, is thinking about doing it as an eBook. They have a firm that converts their books to ePub format and has done their non-technical stuff for a fee. The firm wants three times their usual fee for this one. I am hoping to find a much cheaper (or even free, with my sweat equity) solution. 

I suspect that someone (or several someones) on this list have a very simple solution. Is there a package for turning a LaTeX'd book into ePub format? 

The free program Calibre can do PDF to ePub, but they say that PDF's are just terrible for conversion. My hope is that there is a better approach than LaTeX->PDF->ePub via Calibre. 

Thanks in advance.
