These prices are for works of fiction with word counts of 90,000 and less (additional $10 per 10,000 word increments–not $1 per 1000 words), include platform-specific copyright wording, and assume proper MSWord formatting for the source document. Quotes will be given prior to any charges for manuscripts that do not have proper MS formatting and for non-fiction manuscripts, and are good for 30 days. Prices subject to change.

Bookmarked, front-matter, hyperlinked Table of Contents extra (NCX included at no charge).

*TNR 12 pt font, single-spaced is standard, but if you have a special request, I will work with you. Standard print layout includes headers and page numbers, continuous chapter flow. If you wish to have chapter pages start on right side without header, extra charges apply. Headers are: author name on left pages, aligned on left margin, title on right hand pages, right-aligned, unless title is long enough to distract reading experience, in which case I typically center it on all pages for continuity. Page numbers centered on bottom.

  5. Judi,

    Do you format books with pictures on each page or just words?


    • Hi CH. yes, I can do picture books


      • Yeah, I have written an eBook but couldn’t format it right for Kindle, I thought it was because it has so many pictures.
