Book Formatting Services

Affordable and quality book formatting for your Novel!

Book Formatting Katie Salidas

Book Formatting is a special kind of skill, and Word, while great for writing a book, is not the best at outputting the correct layout for the different styles needed. Ebooks for example come in two flavors: KDP requires Mobi, while all other retailers use Epub. I can convert both of those as well as create the PDF version for print (hardcover and soft) to work with your printer.

You can choose from three different methods of hiring me.
Or Contact me Directly:

My rates are as follows: $35 per hour. Formatting jobs vary depending on how long or complicated the manuscript is, and how many versions need to be created. We will discuss all the variables prior to starting a project so you know, up front, what your estimated cost will be. 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, & footnote, or 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. I do not charge for the first two rounds of proofing changes to perfect look and feel of content. Additional changes due to client altering internal book content after submission are not considered proofing changes. These will incur additional charges.

Additional Services:
Do you need some promotional images done for your soon to be published book? Ask me about 3D cover conversion and sales graphics. I can take your book cover and make it pop!
