Formatting

DN Publishing Logo 2

Writing a book is long process.

As an author, I get that.

But publishing it makes the process longer and a little more complicated when you’re spending time figuring out programs, styles, and layout when you could be writing. Let me save you time by cutting out a piece of the process for you.

Whether you’re having trouble converting your file from Word, Scrivener, or whatever writing software you use to a properly formatted PDF for your printer or if you would simply rather be writing, I will provide you with everything you need in as little time as a week.

One of the things I strive for with each book is simplicity. The focus should be on your words and your story, not how pretty the book looks. (The book should look pretty, don’t get me wrong, but the focus should be on the story.)

The approach I take for each book is “neat and organized.” I appreciate books with a streamlined layout. If that’s what you’re looking for, I’m your guy! (Check out my samples below.)

If you’re interested in having me format your book, please take a moment to fill out the form at the bottom of the page and I will be in touch soon!

***NOTE: I do not offer editing or cover designing services at this time.***

What I Provide:

Paperback: A PDF file that fits print-on-demand requirements.

Ebook: A .mobi and/or .epub file for the following retailers: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iTunes, Kobo, Google Play, and Smashwords.

What You Provide:

An editable file (no PDFs) containing your manuscript. Please include any covers that I will use to embed into the ebook files. Each retailer has different specs, so make sure you’re sending the correct ones!

Turnaround Time:

I typically schedule one book a week for paperback books. Ebooks can be done in a single day. These projections may vary and I’ll update you on what my schedule looks like and my estimation for the completion of your book.
