The name of this company says it all. They are truly Formatting Experts.

Their attention to detail makes a good book a better book. Professional. Excellent work and fast. I’ve retained them to format four of my novels and will definitely continue the relationship.

Tom Lowe, bestselling author of 8 novels in Sean O’Brien series

This was my first e-book and I was amazed at how easy Formatting Experts made the process. They patiently answered all my questions and walked me through what I needed to do. They were professional, delivered fast service, and excellently priced. I would highly recommend them and will use them again on my next manuscript.

Delena Epstein, author of “Second Chance” and 7 other novels

Formatting Experts did a fantastic job on The Last Moriarty. I did self-publish it and the book was successful. And then it was picked up by Amazon's publishing arm Thomas & Mercer.

Formatting Experts were a pleasure to work with and very easy to communicate with. I have no hesitation about recommending them.

Charles Veley, author of “The Last Moriarty”, Sherlock Holmes novel, now published by Amazon’s Thomas & Mercer imprint

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)

  • 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 eBook formatting style guides. Focus on the content and leave the presentation to us.

We create eBook files that can be sold anywhere

We transform your manuscript into Kindle, EPUB and Smashwords files, which will get your book into the hands of any reader, regardless of what retailer or device they use.

Your book will look great on any device: Kindle e-readers, Fire tablets, Nook, Kobo, iPad, iPhone, Android devices, laptops and desktop computers.

You will be able to sell your digital book with any retailer, including Amazon Kindle Store, Barnes & Noble NookPress, Smashwords, Apple iBookstore, Kobo and Scribd.

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 whose focus is attention to detail. 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.

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.

If we don’t find at least 3 issues that you want to fix, then as a reward for a spotless manuscript we will give you a $50 discount to go towards your formatting.

You deserve fair pricing with no hidden fees

Our pricing is simple. Formatting for novels always costs the same, no matter the word count. For non-fiction manuscripts, we provide a quote with a fixed price once we see your manuscript.

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 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 eBook looks.
