I rarely write testimonials but I made an exception in this case because of the outstanding service I received from the Formatting Experts. I felt that they genuinely cared as well as going out of their way to provide high quality work. To say I am impressed with Formatting Experts is an understatement. They not only went above and beyond the call of duty, they also took all the stress out of getting my book published. I would highly recommend Formatting Experts to anyone considering publishing a book or requiring cover design.

eBook Formatting

We create Kindle, EPUB and Smashwords files so that you will be able to publish your eBook on any platform, including the Amazon Kindle Store, Barnes & Noble NookPress, Apple iBookstore, Smashwords and Scribd. Your book will look great on all devices, including Kindle e-readers, Fire tablets, Nook, Kobo, iPad, iPhone, Android devices as well as laptops and desktop computers.

You can provide us with any source file you have and there is no need for you to do any pre-formatting. We create every eBook file from scratch to ensure a great reading experience for all your readers. This manual process eliminates common readability issues associated with automated conversion.

Print-on-Demand Interior Layout

While eBooks continue to grow in popularity, there are still many readers who prefer physical copies. By creating printed editions of your work, you can reach new readers and take paperbacks to special events like book signings and fairs.

Companies like Amazon (KDP Print) and Ingram free you from paying upfront fees for physical copies of your book and stockpiling them in your garage. With Print-on-Demand, you can earn a royalty every time a reader buys a copy, just as you do with eBook versions. All you need to do is simply upload the print-ready files we prepare to KDP Print (formerly CreateSpace) and IngramSpark.

Our designers always choose a design and trim size that matches your book, so you don't need to worry about it. But if you have a specific layout, font or trim size in mind, we are happy to create the interior design that you envision.

Paperbacks can not be proofed properly simply by looking at a print-ready PDF file. To make sure that the book you present to readers is flawless, you need to order a hard-copy proof from a Print-On-Demand printer. We guarantee that our print-ready files will be transformed into a perfect paperback. In the unlikely event that your proof copy is not perfect, we will fix it immediately and deduct from our fee any costs you are charged by the Print-on-Demand company relating to the production and shipping of single proof copies.

Book Cover Design

The cover design makes a big first impression – good or bad – on potential readers. In order to get them excited about your work, an eye-catching image needs to instantly grab their attention and convince them your book is just what they are looking for.

Whether your prefer a custom cover with unlimited concept designs and revisions or you simply want to choose a striking premade cover that resonates with your target audience, you can be sure we will deliver a cover that stands out.

With our simple, fixed fee, we not only provide the perfect cover for digital and print editions of your book, but we also make sure you don’t have to worry about copyright infringement.

Author Website Design and Hosting

An author website is the center of your author brand and backbone of all your marketing. It drives your email list sign ups, provides a straightforward, retailer-agnostic way to list all your books and makes it easy to contact you.

If you are like other first-time authors, you would like to have a place online you can have a full control over, but you are confused and overwhelemed by all the tech. The high upfront cost of a professional design and the ongoing hosting fees don't help either.

Does it mean you have to only rely on unpredictable social media for your marketing or spend countless hours fighting with technology instead of doing what you love? Or sacrifice your writing time to set up cookie-cutter WordPress website that will be a pain to manage?

No. Our team is here to help. For a reasonable, one-time fee, we will design and develop an author website that looks like something you would pay web agency thousands to create, and we will host it, too, with no recurring charges. We will deal with all the tech, so your website works flawlessly, bringing new readers to your author newsletter and introducing them to your books, so you can focus on what you love: writing.

Book Publishing Assistance

We always provide technical and creative help throughout the process of eBook formatting, print layout and cover design, as well as friendly support to help you download, review and use the files we create. But what if you are new to the book publishing world and need more than just file creation of distribution-ready files? Maybe you need them uploaded to your accounts at retailers and distributors. Or you need a helping hand from someone who can provide answers to all your questions and give you ongoing personalized advice at the right time. If that is what you need, we can guide you step-by-step along each stage of the publishing process.

We can help you choose the right categories for your book, answer questions about royalties, distribution channels, ISBNs and pre-orders, as well as provide assistance with your website, MailChimp mailing list creation and setting up your author email address.

All this extra assistance is only available with our GUIDED service.

Book Publishing Consulting

Whether you are a seasoned author with an impressive backlist or you have just finished your first manuscript, publishing your books independently can become a complex process. At one stage or another, you will need reliable answers and up-to-date advice you can trust to move you towards your goals.

Maybe you are looking for someone to suggest how you can improve what you are already doing or you simply need someone to confirm you are on the right track. Maybe you want to run your publishing strategy by someone who has a clear insight of how all the pieces of self-publishing puzzle fit together. Have you considered crowd funding through Kickstarter and rewarding your backers with a limited edition hardcover copy of your book? Do you know how to adapt your non-fiction book to reach a wider audience through different mediums? Perhaps you are completely confused by all the information out there and want simple, clear advice on what step to take next.

Unlike Publishing Assistance, which is subject to pricing per book, our Consulting service allows you to get all the answers and advice you need without being tied to any other service. We can discuss any publishing-related topic by phone or by email, in as much or as little detail as required for you to achieve your goals. Consulting is offered at a fixed, one-off price, as opposed to an hourly rate, so we can spend as much time as you need covering the topics that matter most to you, without worrying about the price.
