Book Formatting Service

Professional formatting for ebooks and print

I have a secret confession: I love formatting books! Back in my art school days, I dreamed of doing magazine layout. Somehow I wound up a history teacher instead, but I'm back to layout and design and couldn't be happier.


If you're a writer who hates DIY book formatting, you're my ideal customer! I use Vellum software for Mac. All I need from you is a Word document and a cover (for ebooks) or trim size (for print).


I want to give you a lot of choices in design so your book appears professionally made and not “cookie cutter” formatted. If you find that overwhelming, tell me your genre and I can help you choose what should be appropriate.


I can format your manuscript for mobi, ePub, and PDF files. This means they're ready for upload to Kindle, Nook, iBooks, Kobo, Google Play, Createspace, Ingram Spark, or anywhere else you want to distribute your book. 


What I Offer

  • High quality PDF print; ePub (ebook); and mobi (Kindle) files

  • Store and website hyperlinks

  • Clickable Table of Contents

  • Images

  • Front and Back Matter

  • 8 book theme styles with 29 sub-styles

  • 7 style choices for first paragraphs in chapters & scenes

  • 9 style choices for scene break designs

  • Your custom image for chapter headings and scene breaks

  • 8 font styles for print


The information I’ll need:

  • Your edited Word document. (No pictures including charts/graphs. Send these separately).

  • Approximate number of pages. My software will tell me the number of pages. This is often different than a Word document count, so your price may adjust accordingly.

  • Your cover for ebook/Kindle files (at least 1600 x 2500 is necessary for Amazon)

  • If you’re including pictures, high resolution .jpg files

  • If you want to include links, they can be linked within your word document or given to me separately

  • Your trim size for print

  • If you’re looking for a specific design style
