eBook & Print Formatting
Simple and elegant formatting
Stylized Design - A choice of fonts and formats to create a professional clean look for your book. Includes stylistic elements like drop caps, beautiful fonts for chapter and sections, chapters starting immediately after ending of the previous chapter (default on print) or on the right page (when requested), headers or footers with book and chapter names, and table of contents with chapter headings and page numbers.
Digital Format: Includes a digital copy of your works in mobi format for Amazon uploads, and epub format for Apple iBooks and other uploading sites. Up to five revisions.
Print Format: Includes a PDF copy of your works in the size you requested, with odd/even adjusted margins. Up to five revisions. You chose which format you need and we will do the rest. Take a look at our stylistic options for print books here
Please Note: To format your work properly I require the final, edited, and complete manuscript. Changes, even on a minor scale, can affect page count/layout. Please have your front matter, book, and back matter laid out the way you want. If you don’t know about these things, please ask so that I can help you prior to you sending me the file.
Choose a single format or both - the choice is yours
We realize not every indie author needs both eBook and Print of their works. Because of this, we have set our investments based on one format.
Initial Investment: Up to 100000 words & 2 Images (roughly 400 pages for 5x8)
Cost: $150.00 (USD)
Additional 10000 words: $20.00
Additional images: 5 for $10.00
Want both Print and eBook? Add second format: $25.00
* images need to be large 300 dpi resolution, and high quality
Please note at this time we are only offering formatting services for single-authored fiction short story collections, novels and novellas in the standard printing sizes. Should you require something else, please contact us to discuss and make sure we will fit your needs.
This is the step you take when all you need is a second pair of eyes.
This package is ideal for the indie author that has already done it all, and is almost ready for publication. You have worked hard on your manuscript, and have even had friends or colleagues look it over, but you want a professional set of eyes to look over the document for any errors that may have slipped through the cracks.
Our contract editor on staff will review your manuscript for all the final grammar, spelling, and punctuation errors.
Cost: $.01 per word (USD)
This package gives you all-in-one formatting for your novel or novella.
You are happy with the structure of your work, and now it is time to focus on readability to keep your audience engaged. This is where copy and line edits come in, to correct and smooth without changing your voice.
When copy/line editing our contract editor will examine your sentence structure for readability, tenses, as well as grammar, spelling, and punctuation errors.
Cost: $0.02 per word (USD)
