Formatting & Typesetting


Interior formatting is often the most overlooked, essential part of any book publication. It is where your reader spends most of their time, and you want to make sure they savor every word without having to strain their eyes or deal with frustrating eBook issues. That said, you’ve come to the right place if you’re looking for clean, effective formatting and typesetting.

I offer digital eBook formatting, as well as typesetting for print. I am very familiar with working for printers such as KDP for Print, CreateSpace, Book Baby, Lightning Source, Ingram Spark, and also independent printers. I am familiar with eBook distributors such as KDP, Smashwords, Draft2Digital, iBooks, and Nook. I provide all file formats, including print-ready PDF and upload-ready ePub and Kindle (mobi) if requested.

Make no mistake. A well-formatted book is worth every cent. I go through your book line-by-line to make sure every element is working in harmony. I use professional, most recently updated Adobe InDesign for formatting.
