Is your completed manuscript ready for publishing? Are you considering the path of self-publishing? Does your small press require a print-ready file?

Formatting in Word or relying on expensive subsidy services is neither professional nor economical for print books. For authors and independent publishers, I create a professional, print-ready pdf version of your book, tailored to your printer's template, as well as several EBook formats.

 

PRINT BOOK FORMATTING

The Basic Interior Print Design Includes:

Title pages(s)
Copyright page
Dedication
Table of contents
Chapters
About the Author
Additional pages - acknowledgements, other books, etc.
Running headers and page numbers
Properly set gutters, margins, and line spacing
Text properly justified
Up to 20 quotes / bullet lists
Grayscale graphics / photos / logo outside of main body of text. (Images are for interior only - I do not format book exteriors or covers.)

Trim size - 6 x 9 (Extra charge for larger sizes)
Fonts available - Arial, Times New Roman, Bookman Old Style, Cambria, Georgia, Trebuchet MS, or Verdana - other styles available on request
Font sizes - even numbers (10, 12, 14)

I will correct obvious errors in formatting (extra paragraph returns, tabs, etc.) as they arise. I do not correct spelling, grammar, or other editorial errors. Unusual or special formatting or paragraph styles are taken on a manuscript by manuscript basis.

Content is created from the MS Word file and jpg images you supply. All work completed in Adobe InDesign.

The Process:

- Contact me directly at wolferockATearthlinkDOTnet to discuss your book project.
- Once we have decided on the basic design layout, I will format up to ten pages for free for your approval.
- When satisfied with the format, send me your completed manuscript in a Word file (plus jpg images if applicable) for formatting. Only send a file that is 100% proofed and ready. Any editorial changes requested after manuscript is formatted will be at an additional charge. I am not your editor, I am your book formatter.
- The minimum fee of $60.00 (up to 120,000 words/300 pages/35 chapters) is due before work begins. Additional charges (higher page or chapter counts and/or additional challenges) will be assessed when work is complete.
- Turnaround time is 5 - 8 days.
- Once completed, you will receive a secure pdf file for approval. Only cosmetic changes or errors can be made at this time.
- When satisfied with your proof and remaining balance (if any) is paid, you will be sent a printer-ready pdf file of your manuscript. I’m not happy until you’re happy!

All work guaranteed. Printer-related issues will be corrected free of charge.
