Book Formatting and Cover Design for Indie Authors

Satisfaction Guaranteed

We understand you already paid enough upfront to get your manuscript to its final draft. We also know you will love what we do, which is why we offer our services with no upfront fees and give you an option to pay in several monthly installments. Your satisfaction first, easy payment later.

Dedicated support

Clear communication is crucial, so a dedicated, friendly team member will personally keep in touch with you as our book designers, eBook formatters and cover artists transform your manuscript into a distribution-ready, quality book. Whenever you have a question, a real person is just an email away.

All you need in one place

You don't need to search for book layout professional, eBook formatter and cover designer all over the place. Our team provides everything you need to turn your final manuscript into a high-quality eBook and paperback. A dedicated person oversees all parts of the project and keeps you updated.

Send us your manuscript in any format – no pre-formatting required

It doesn’t matter what program you have used to write your manuscript or how you have formatted it. Just send it to us and let us worry about the technicalities. We accept any file you have, including:

  • Microsoft Word (.doc, .docx, .wbk)
  • Scrivener (.scriv, .rtf, .rtfd)
  • Rich Text Format (.rtf)
  • OpenOffice or LibreOffice (.odt)
  • WordPerfect (.wpd, .wp, .wp7, .wp6, .wp5)
  • Apple Pages (.pages)
  • InDesign (.indd)
  • PDF

There is no set of rules for what your text should look like, nor is there any need for formatting to be consistent – that's our job. Forget about manuscript formatting guidelines. Focus on the content and leave the presentation to us.

I was amazed at how easy Formatting Experts made the process.

I cannot recommend Formatting Experts enough, they were simply brilliant.

Get distribution-ready eBook and print files for worldwide distribution

Formatting Experts work and customer service were exceptional. They were responsive and professional in all matters. My next book will be headed to them.
Edward Leach, author of "Extra Extra"
Formatting Experts do so much more than format your book. It was the best possible experience I could have had in getting my book published.
Denise Dugo, author of "Decade of Change"

We transform your manuscript into upload-ready Kindle, EPUB and Smashwords files, which will get your book into the hands of any eBook reader regardless of what device they use. Your book will look great on any device and you will be able to sell it with any retailer, including Amazon Kindle Store, Barnes & Noble NookPress, Smashwords, Apple iBookstore, Kobo and Scribd.

For print edition, we create distribution-ready interior PDF file that can be uploaded directly to CreateSpace, KDP Print and IngramSpark. With CreateSpace or KDP Print, you get fast distribution to Amazon. With Ingram, you get direct access to US, UK and worldwide retailers, including Barnes & Noble, Book Depository, Waterstones, Chapters/Indigo, Blackwell’s, Wordery, Booktopia and dozens of sellers on popular book marketplaces online.

Your book deserves quality and attention

We respect you and your readers. This is why our eBooks are built from scratch by experienced eBook developers. Manually formatting your book results in a much higher quality book when compared to automated conversion. The absence of those annoying problems that are often associated with automated conversion means the text will look great on every device and your readers will be able to fully appreciate your words.

For print edition, we always use professional typesetting software to format your book carefully, instead of using word processors (which are great for writing, but not so much for book design). Our designers always use best practices and their experience to come up with the right trim size, fonts and layout for your book, so you don't need to think about it, but if you have any specific preferences regarding book size, fonts, headers, footers, pages numbers or layout then we can base our work on your specifications and make useful suggestions along the way. After seeing the interior file you can request any changes you feel necessary, ensuring that your book will look its best whether your book is pocket-sized, a trade paperback or hardcover limited edition for special occasions.

We care a lot about the immersive reading experience, which depends heavily on having an error-free text. This is why in addition to crafting a great-looking layout we also create a unique Quality Report for you, which indicates potential errors that authors, editors and proofreaders sometimes miss. This report lists a number of changes for you to consider making before we start formatting and is free of charge. During this stage, you may make an unlimited number of amendments to your manuscript, and any changes you end up making will not affect your free changes limit.

I am very pleased to offer my highest recommendation for the services of Formatting Experts for the work they have done on two editions of my book. They exhibited tremendous knowledge around book publishing, responding quickly, thoroughly, and patiently to all inquiries, and were generally a delight to work with. They are amazingly attentive to detail, responsive, and diligent. An outstanding team.
Andy Hines, author of "Thinking about the Future"
I rarely write testimonials but I made an exception in this case because of the outstanding service I received from 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 getting my book published.
Jule Fuller, author of "What Every Parent Needs to Know"
Formatting Experts is a delightful company to work with.
Richard Collins, ghostwriter

Perfect eBook and paperback cover

As a first time author, I didn’t have a clue what to do about a cover for my novel. Formatting Experts took my idea and ran with it, producing a cover far more interesting than I could ever have imagined. They were easy to work with, timely in communication and extremely efficient. I heartily recommend their services for anyone interested in self-publishing!
Richard Todd, author of "Sitting Still"

“It was the cover that attracted me to this book, I think before I had even read the synopsis I knew I needed to read this book. I absolutely love this cover, and after reading Inky, I have to say it fits perfectly.”

“To be honest, the name of the book kinda put me off to buying it. But then I saw the cover!”

“When I first saw cover, I thought – WOW – what a beautiful and amazingly unique cover!”

Reviewers mentioning our cover for "Inky" by J.B. Hartnett

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.

Our designers will create three initial designs based on the genre, target audience and description of your book. After your feedback, we will apply as many changes as needed to your chosen design to create a cover that will instantly resonate with your readers. If none of the initial designs appeal to you, we will continue to create completely new concepts until we come up with one you love.

Whether we create the perfect cover the first-time around, or whether we have to create seven completely different designs and make multiple revisions, you will always pay the same, fixed price. This includes everything, from our design work to any fees for images and fonts used in the design.

Our designers always strive to create the best concept for the cover of your book. Whether using your ideas and suggestions or whether you leave the entire creative process up to the designer, we will always come up with a cover that grabs the attention of your target audience.

In the unlikely event we don't deliver a cover you absolutely love, you won’t have to pay us for it.

We keep you on the safe side of copyright

Great cover design is a result of the combined effort of many creative people. There are photographers who shoot and retouch beautiful photos. There are font designers who spend weeks on developing unique fonts. Finally, there are designers who come up with the right vision and then find beautiful photos from skilled photographers, matching fonts and mix it all together to create high-quality, unique book covers.

All this work is protected by copyright law. We make sure all those creative people get the payment they deserve for their hard work and that the licensing of all the creative work used on the cover is clear and transparent.

We explicitly take legal responsibility for only using images and fonts cleared for commercial use. This means that sometimes we can’t use a particular image or font but it also means that you won’t lose any sleep worrying about copyright law.

I contacted two of your authors and received glowing reviews. Now I know why. You give more than technical support to your authors. And for novices like me with limited technical knowledge, this help is immeasurable. What appeared insurmountable turned into a task that I could manage.

Your assistance has been invaluable. Saying thank you isn’t enough for all you’ve done to help me, but I will say it anyway. Thank you so much for your kindness, expertise and keeping on top of all the issues regarding the books. Working with you has helped me stay focused on my writing goals in more ways than words can convey. Your team is awesome.

E. C. Jackson, author of "A Living Hope"

Perfect Hard Copy Guarantee

I sent my historical novel, PATRIOTS AND REBELS, to Formatting Experts upon the recommendation of someone in my writers' group for whom they had worked. It was the best decision of my writing career. They worked tirelessly to get both the text and the cover done exactly as I wanted it, and did not stop until I was entirely satisfied.

Even now, with the book in print, they continue to be available for consultation. Anyone who intends to publish a book would do well to entrust it to the experts at this company. They get an A+ in my book!

John C. Bush, author of "Patriots and Rebels"

Do-It-Yourself projects never have intimidated me until I tried to get my first novel’s manuscript ready to publish as paperback. For the second book I turned to Formatting Experts and they patiently led me through getting the look I wanted. They are quick to respond, willing to go the extra mile to get it right, and give good advice about the whole process.

Judy Rich, author of "Like a Fox"

We guarantee the files we create will not only be accepted by any Print-on-Demand provider of your choice, but will also be perfect when they are printed. This guarantee applies to both the interior and cover files.

The digital and print worlds are quite different. Things that look good on screen might be unsuitable for paper and vice versa. On top of that, PDF files don’t represent the actual properties of the book faithfully, such as size, margins or text sharpness and readability, nor they account for printing variance which is unique to physical format. While our book designers use their experience to make choices properly suited for print, you can only judge the final result of their work with the actual hard copy in hand.

In the unlikely event that your paperback doesn’t turn out perfect, regarding fonts, margins, text sizes or anything else, then we will promptly fix it and send you the updated interior file. We will also deduct any fees from the price of our services you end up paying for an additional proof copy as a result of our mistake. That includes printing, shipping and file revision fees that may be charged by Amazon, CreateSpace and IngramSpark. We know that when it comes to a less than perfect hard copy of your paperback, it might be hard for you to tell whether something is a printing issue or file creation mistake. To avoid any doubt and having an author-friendly approach to everything we do, we take responsibility for everything that is an issue in your opinion.

Should you experience any problems with our eBook files, we will sort them out quickly as well.

Fair pricing with no hidden fees and easy payment

Our pricing is simple. Book design and formatting for novels always costs the same, and so does cover design for all books. Formatting for non-fiction books is priced based on the interior complexity. After seeing your formatted book, we understand you might want to change something you have written. For this reason you can request a batch of up to 10 textual changes free of charge. We know how important back matter of each book is for converting your readers into a lifelong fans and increasing sales, so we will update a list of your other books at no additional cost, at any time. Layout changes are also free until you are completely satisfied with how your book looks.

We have been working with first-time indie authors for over 7 years, so we know that paying upfront for a quality service is not always easy. You have already paid for a good editor and you still need money to spend on marketing to succesfully launch your book. This is why not only we do not ask for any upfront payment, but we also make it easier for your budget by allowing you to split the payment into several monthly installments. This way, you have the time to collect your book royalties before paying us the majority of our fee.

We also know life sometimes gets in a way, so if you can't make the payment in time, instead of dealing with banks, credit card companies and other financial services happy to charge you extra for the delay, simply let us know and we will re-schedule the remaining payments. We never take the money from your account or card automatically, so unless you authorize each installment manually, we won't get it.

My experience with Formatting Experts felt like working with a close friend. The project included cover design and formatting for four novels. The same project manager stayed with me throughout this process while communicating beautifully. Questions were answered quickly, intelligently and concisely with courtesy and tact. The service I received will bring me back to these professionals for future publication projects. I intend to recommend Formatting Experts to my friends and associates seeking a professional, reasonably priced and successful path to publication.
C.K. Thomas, author of "Arrowstar" series
Formatting Experts are more than what their name implies. They're also Cover Design Experts, Customer Service Experts…and the list goes on. Writing a book is only one part of the equation. Good formatting and a great cover design bring it all together and they're the go-to guys for all your book formatting and cover design needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Services and files

How are you different from other companies?

Real People – Real Contact. When it comes to book publishing, clear communication is just as important as technical expertise. We respect your time and provide direct answers to your questions, allowing you to focus on publishing your book without the frustration of an unresponsive support team that treats you like a "ticket" or an "account" instead of the creative human being you are.

We don’t charge you upfront. We believe that your satisfaction should come first and payment later. We don’t ask for payment for any of our services until you are 100% satisfied with our work. In the unlikely event that we don’t meet (or exceed) your expectations, you won't need to pay us. We also understand the challenges of being an indie author and launching your first book, so we give you an option to split the payment into easy installments.

We have clear and fair pricing. With our fixed pricing, you always know what you are going to pay. And with a fair number of free content changes to your manuscript, you can fix those elusive errors in your manuscript that avoided detection prior to formatting.

We offer a full service. We provide everything you need to transform your final manuscript into commercial-quality paperback and eBook. We know the real-world differences between eBook and print formats and we don't treat one as a mere 'addition' to the other.

We care about quality. Our commitment to helping you publish a commercial-quality book you are proud of goes beyond manually developing eBook files without automated conversion tools, using only professional typesetting tools for interior page design instead of word processing software and crafting your book cover with attention to details. In addition to these services provided by our experienced team of formatters and designers, we also provide a unique Quality Report when you use us for book formatting. You can use this report to fix any errors affecting the reading experience that may slip past your editor, proofreaders and beta readers. See this answer for details.

We offer two types of service tailored to your needs: ZEN and CLASSIC. With both, you get the same professional-quality interior and cover files, as well as the support you need to use them. CLASSIC will allow you to get all upload-ready files faster, but at a higher price. If you are not in rush and don't mind waiting longer, ZEN option lets you keep more of your money and still present quality book to your readers. Whichever option you prefer, if you want to meet a specific publishing date, please let us know, so we can make sure we can guarantee it.

What services do you offer?

We offer a complete range of services for independent authors looking to publish professional-quality books in print and digital formats.

With eBook formatting, we provide ready-to-upload Kindle (.mobi), EPUB and Smashwords files. Kindle files can be uploaded directly to Amazon's KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing) platform and will work great across all Kindle devices and apps. EPUB file can be uploaded to all other retailers and distributors. Smashwords files are prepared specifically for Smashwords for distribution through their Premium Catalog.

With Print-on-Demand (POD) Interior Layout, we provide print-ready PDF files that can be used with CreateSpace, KDP Print and IngramSpark, as well as other Print-on-Demand providers. Our print files meet PDF/X-1a:2001 standard that is required by IngramSpark and other printers.

With Book Cover Design, we provide front covers as JPG files suitable for all eBook retailers and print-ready PDF files for CreateSpace, KDP Print and IngramSpark. On request, we provide print cover files for any other provider. If requested, we can also send you layered Photoshop (PSD) files with a finished design. Please note that if we use a licensed commercial font for your design, its license might prohibit us from sending you font files themselves.

What file formats of manuscripts do you accept? Do I need to format my manuscript in a specific way?

We accept manuscripts in any file format and we do not require any pre-formatting or preparation. The most popular formats we receive are Microsoft Word (.doc, docx), InDesign (.indd) and PDF files.

When working on formatting, we prefer the following formats, in descending order:

  • Microsoft Word (.doc, .docx, .wbk)
  • OpenOffice or LibreOffice (.odt)
  • Rich Text Format (.rtf)
  • Scrivener (.scriv, .rtf, .rtfd)
  • WordPerfect (.wpd, .wp, .wp7, .wp6, .wp5)
  • Apple Pages (.pages)
  • InDesign (.indd)
  • Markdown (.md)
  • LaTeX (.tex)
  • Plain text (.txt)
  • Quark
  • PDF

If the file format you have isn’t on this list, feel free to send us whatever file you have. We have never encountered a file format we couldn’t work with.

There is no set of rules for what your text should look like, nor is there any need for formatting to be consistent – that's our job. Forget about manuscript formatting style guides. Focus on the content and leave the presentation to us.

What does "file-related support" mean?

Whether you choose our ZEN or CLASSIC service, we will always provide the support you need to use the files we create. So whether your eBook file is rejected by a retailer or you have an issue with opening a print file in your PDF viewer, we will be there to help you.

If any communication with retailers or distributors is required to fix an issue with the file, we will write emails that you can send to their support or we can communicate directly with them on your behalf, with your permission, for a quicker resolution.

Quality and guarantees

What is a “100% Satisfaction Guarantee”

We know that you will be happy with our team’s expertise, quality of our work and friendly support along the way. Once we are finished, you will be proud to present the finished book to your readers. In the unlikely event that you are not completely satisfied with anything we do, and we can’t make it right, you won't need to pay us at all. This guarantee applies to all our services.

And because we do not charge you anything upfront, you can be sure you have a book you are proud of, in your hands, before paying us for the work we have done.

What is a "Quality Guarantee"?

We take pride in the quality of the files we create. Our eBook files are ‘hand-crafted’ by experienced eBook developers: we do not use automated conversion software or a word processor's export options. For paperback layout, we use professional typesetting tools meant for commercial book production, not Microsoft Word or PDF export options from other office suites.

We guarantee that our eBook files will be accepted by all retailers and distributors that support EPUB files and our Kindle files will be accepted by Amazon. We also guarantee that our print files will be accepted by CreateSpace, KDP Print and IngramSpark and will be flawless when printed by them.

Should any file (eBook or print) be rejected by a retailer, distributor or printer, or a hard copy of your book not look flawless when printed, we will quickly fix any issues. If any communication with retailers or distributors is required to fix the issue, we will write emails that you can send to their support or we can communicate directly with them on your behalf, with your permission, for a quicker resolution.

We want you to know that you will never pay for our mistakes. In the unlikely event of any issues, we will reimburse you for any fees that a retailer or distributor charges you as a result of our mistakes. That includes single proof copy printing costs and shipping, as well as file revision fees that are charged by some distributors, such as IngramSpark. We will deduct those fees from the price of our services, up to a total price of those services. If you have paid us before discovering the issue, we will refund you those fees, up to the total amount you paid us.

We know that when it comes to a less than perfect hard copy of your paperback, it might be hard for you tell whether something is a printing issue or file creation mistake. To avoid any doubt and having an author-friendly approach to everything we do, we take responsibility for everything that is an issue in your opinion.

What is a "Perfect Cover Guarantee"?

We guarantee that we either come up with a cover that you love or you won't have to pay us for it. It's that simple.

We also guarantee that all files we create will be accepted by retailers and distributors of your choice and that your paperback cover will look perfect after being printed by Print-on-Demand companies. If your book cover turns out less than perfect and you have to pay for additional proof copies or file revisions, we will promptly fix the mistake, as well as deduct any fees you have to pay the distributor as a result, up to the total price of our services.

We know that when it comes to a less than perfect hard copy of your paperback, it might be hard for you tell whether something is a printing issue or file creation mistake. To avoid any doubt and having an author-friendly approach to everything we do, we take responsibility for everything that is an issue in your opinion.

What is a "Quality Report"?

Since 2012, we have worked on hundreds of books. Thanks to this, we have been able to determine the most common types of errors that appear in manuscripts. They are the types of errors that often slip past editors, proofreaders and beta readers, but can spoil the experience of your future readers.

For this reason, we will put together a list of those common issues in your manuscript prior to formatting your book. Issues that appear most frequently are missing, superfluous or incorrect quotation marks, improper punctuation or lack of it, incorrect use of spaces or lack of spaces where they are needed and repeated words. While those errors are not as important as a broken plot or poor character development, they can negatively impact reader engagement.

After detecting any potential issues we will send you the list as a separate document, allowing you to make any changes you feel necessary to your manuscript. Changes applied to your manuscript at this stage do not count towards the limit of free changes that comes into effect after we start the formatting work on the final version of your manuscript.

How many layout changes can I request for interior files?

When working on eBook formatting and print layout, we will always choose the layout that best fits your book in each format. But if you want us to change one thing or even the whole layout to fit your vision, we can.

Layout changes are free, until we reach a layout you like and approve for each format. And for paperback, we can change the layout until you are happy with your physical proof copy.

How many content changes can I request for interior files?

We know that when you see your formatted book, you may notice things that you should have changed in your manuscript. If they are critical, you will probably want to make those changes in the formatted files before publishing your book.

After seeing your formatted eBook and print files, and before publishing them, you can request 1 free batch of up to 10 textual changes. Any further changes are priced on case-by-case basis.

We know how important back matter listings of your other books are to keep readers engaged with your work, so we will update the list of your other books free of charge at any time and it will not count towards your change limit.

Pricing and payment

Do you require any upfront payment for your services?

We offer all our services without any upfront payment. We only ask you to pay when you are 100% satisfied with our services.

In the unlikely event that you are not happy with our work, being it files that we create, or support provided along the way, and we can't make it right, you are under no obligation to pay us. The same principle applies to cover design: if we can't come up with the perfect cover design, you won’t have to pay us for it.

What payment methods are accepted? Can I receive invoices for your services? Do you charge VAT?

Methods of payment

We accept PayPal payments in all major currencies, including USD, GBP, EUR, CAD and AUD. It is easy and secure to use. You can use both credit and debit cards with PayPal, as well as fund your account with a local bank transfer.

If you live in Europe, we can accept SEPA transfers to our EUR account.

We also have bank accounts in several countries in the local currency, including a London-based account that can accept GBP transfers and New York account which can accept USD transfers.

Currencies

You can pay us in any currency of your choice. If you would like to pay us in a different currency than listed in the pricing table, let us know. We calculate the price in your chosen currency by using the mid-market exchange rate at the time of the quote or at the time of the payment, depending on your preference.

Invoices

We can issue you a PDF invoice for our services. If you are based in Europe, we issue a VAT invoice.

In most countries, you can use the price of professional book publishing services as a business expense to reduce your payable income tax if you are sole trader or a have a registered business.

VAT for European customers

Our company is based and registered in Poland. We are obligated by law to add 23% VAT to the price of all our services for all customers living in European Union that are not a company or sole trader. If you are a EU company, we will issue a “reverse charge” VAT invoice for our services. You may be required by the law of your country to account for this transaction in your VAT declaration.

Starting in April 2019, if the UK leaves the European Union by then, we will no longer be required to add VAT tax for our services if you live in the UK, even if you are not a sole trader or a company.

Do you offer discounts for multiple books or bulk pricing?

If you plan to publish multiple titles in a short amount of time or have a sizeable backlist that you plan to gradually release, please let us know and we will discuss what we can do for you.

Including the following information will help us provide you with a prompt and accurate quote:

  • How many books do you plan to publish and what is the estimated timeframe for releasing them?
  • Are those books fiction, non-fiction or both?
  • Which services do you need?
Do I need to pay extra for stock photos or fonts used on the cover design?

The fixed price you pay for the cover design includes all the costs required to create your book cover: design work, stock photo images and licensing of fonts used. You will never have to pay any additional fees.

Distribution

What is IngramSpark? Why should I use a second distributor for my paperback?

IngramSpark is a Print-on-Demand printer and distributor that you can use alongside KDP Print (formerly CreateSpace) to maximize your paperback distribution reach and royalties. For example, the same copy of your paperback sold by Barnes & Noble on their website can earn you twelve times more if you print and distribute with IngramSpark, when compared to KDP Expanded Distribution.

IngramSpark also offers other benefits, whether you want to distribute your book to all print retailers or sell it exclusively on Amazon, such as:

  • the ease to set up paperback pre-orders on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Book Depository, Chapters/Indigo and beyond
  • the ability to earn 30% higher royalties for copies sold on Amazon.com than with KDP or CreateSpace
  • the option to publish and distribute a hardcover edition using Print-on-Demand model
  • the possibility to publish very short and extremely long books, beyond page counts supported by CreateSpace
  • the option to publish affordable full-color books with far better royalties than possible with CreateSpace, including hardback full-color books

After you contact us, you will automatically be redirected to a page with a detailed 8000-word long explanation on how to use IngramSpark alongside KDP to maximize your royalties from wide paperback distribution.

We are here to help!
