Book Formatting

Affordable and quality book formatting for your Novel!


With over ten years in the indie publishing industry, I know what goes into the layout of a novel. I won't use templates to design your book. With your input I can create a custom layout affordably and quickly.




Formatting rates are $1 per every 1,000 words per format (print and ebook are separate formats)  Minimum $10 per work order.
$25 Discount available if bundling print and ebook formatting.

For Ebooks:
You will receive your book in 3 eBook formats, Kindle (.mobi or .kpc) and ePub ready to upload to Amazon KPD and Barnes & Noble Press! as well as a Word doc ready to upload to Draft2Digital or Smashwords.com.
If you need any additional formats please let me know within 30 days of service.

For Print Books: 
Per your trim size and specifications, I will format your book to include:
front matter sections (title, copyright, dedication, acknowledgments, table of contents, etc.).
chapters pages with chapter titles, running headers and page numbers,
back of book sections such as an about the author page.

When completed, you will receive a PDF draft of your completed book layout for you to review before the final PDF is made.

Payment:
Once a price is agreed on I will send an invoice to be paid 50% up front with the remainder due when you approve the final files.

Terms and Conditions:
Standard Book formatting services do not include:
Editing or proofreading
Image editing or manipulation
Creation of charts or graphs
Indexing
Tables
Blockquotes
Lists
Subheadings
Poetry
Footnotes
Formatting of books written in a language other than English.

I do have some image manipulation capabilities, but I generally request that the client provide exactly what they would like to see within the book. Should those services be needed, we will discuss cost at that time, before any work is started. 

For non-fiction books requiring tables and indexes to be created will add an additional $50 to the print and ebook formatting price for novels 50,000 and under. Larger works will be negotiated before work begins. Due to the technical nature of individually locating and linking exact phrasing within the text these additional charges must be applied.

Client provided glossaries and backmatter do not incur any additional charges.

Proofs are a part of the process. I understand that nothing comes out perfect on the first go around.
Up to 3 rounds of revisions are included in the formatting price so we have plenty of time to work toward a finished product that meets my clients standards. 

If excessive revisions are requested additional fees will apply. Please make sure your manuscript is edited and ready to be formatted prior to sending it to me. I must make very clear that I am not an editor. What you give me to work with is what I will use. I do not read or correct manuscripts sent to me for formatting. My task is to place the text - as you have sent it to me - within the perimeters of the book it will fit inside.
