One of the things we hear authors express the most frustration about is formatting a book for self publication. Digital and print formatting are two very different beasts, and the outlets you want to sell your book through all have their own guidelines. Don't want to deal with it? Let us do it for you!
We offer both print book formatting and digital formatting. And if you want us to handle the upload, we'd be happy to do that too.
A print book's interior is just as important as the cover you've agonized over. But this can be a very daunting task. What fonts do you use? Where do you set your margins? Where's that darn dedication go, exactly? Stop worrying, we'll take care of it all.
So what do you get?
We establish the layout, including page and scene breaks, copyright page, author biography, dedication, and acknowledgement pages. Want your book to include the first chapter excerpt of the sequel? We'll do that too, just let us know. As part of the layout process, we select a font style that compliments your tone (and your cover if you have it), so each page is as compelling as the artwork. If you already have a font in mind, or you've established one for series use, just let us know.
Once we have everything put together, you will receive a file to review and approve. For the first thirty days after your release, if there are any changes that need to be made, we will do so free of charge, as well.
Print formatting prices are flat fees. For the most advantageous rate, check out our editing packages.
Turn Around Time - Two Weeks
In some ways, digital formatting is more tricky than print formatting. Depending on where you intend to sell your book, or what e-reader devices you want to make it available for, the formatting can be product-specific. Which translates to a lot of time spent adjusting your book when you could be writing the next one.
So what do you get?
If you want to upload your book to distributors yourself, we will provide a compatible file type for each distributor's specifications. However, if you'd like us to upload your book, that's something we can easily do. Just let us know what you need.
We work primarily with Kobo, Kindle, and Nook formats, and we will guarantee your book will meet those specifications. If you'd like to use another distributor, please let us know, and while it may affect turn-around time, we can probably accommodate your needs.
Pricing is flat fee based. Please see our rates for more details.
Turn Around Time - One Week
You asked, and we complied! Once we've finished formatting your book, if you'd like us to upload it across multiple vendors, we will. Please understand that this requires access to your various accounts and you will need to be prepared to supply us with that information.
Pricing is determined by number of desired vendors, at a flat fee per vendor. Please see our rates for complete details.
NOTE: You must have completed another process with us to be eligible for this service.
