Services

Need help formatting your manuscript for digital distribution? We can help! We provide the services you need to take your book to the public from formatting all the way to upload!

Cover Design

We don’t offer individual cover design but KEEP WATCHING here for simple, pre-made covers you can purchase.

Book Formatting

We use Vellum to guarantee proper formatting of your digital and/or print project and we offer several design options for you choose from. Click here to see each of them!

    • Print: Formatted to match your digital file’s style cues, there are minor options, such as page header (title and/or author name variations) and page number positions. Print formats will be delivered in PDF.
    • Digital: We offer two modes for digital formatting: Standard or Custom.
      • Standard Formatting provides you with a .mobi file for Amazon and a standard ePub file suitable for most other vendors.
      • Custom Formatting will give you specific files for vendors with embedded live links to your other books on those vendors’ platforms, enabling readers to buy your other books right from their devices. Covers (you provide) will be sized to each vendor’s specifications as well and included in your package.
