What do you need me to include in order to format my book?
Aside from your manuscript, you may want to include the following in the order you want them to appear:
- Title page as you’d like it to appear
- Copyright & Disclaimer page (may include credits for cover artist, editor, ISBN# if you have one)
- Author’s Note
- Other books you’ve written. If you want them linked, please include the links. I will charge an additional $15/hour if I have to hunt down all the links, as it takes a considerable amount of time.
- Author Bio
I’ll also need a high-res copy of your cover, if I did not design it.
What types of files do you provide in your general ebook formatting fee?
Digital formatting comes with a mobi copy for Kindle/Amazon and an ePub for all other retailers. I can include a PDF as well, free of charge, if you have need.
Does your formatting fee include formatting for Smashwords?
No, formatting for Smashwords will incur an additional fee of $20, as they have very specific requirements that must be followed.
What if I want a watermarked ePub version of my book for Advanced Reader Copies?
I will include add an ARC Copy for ePub that is watermarked with “ARC – Advanced Reader Copy” on every page for an additional $10. If you would like each book to be watermarked with an individual coded number (in order to keep track of who has your ARCs – and who is sharing them with others without your knowledge – it happens) it will be $30 for up to 15 coded copies.
