How long will the formatting of my book take?
Once we receive the finalized version of your book or manuscript, and you have completed the online ordering process, you will receive the first draft of your formatting within approximately 14 days.
What types of different formats do you accept for manuscripts?
We prefer all manuscripts to be submitted in a Microsoft Word document. However, we all accept a wide range of other document types. PDFs, RTFs, ODTs or InDesign files. However, some of these file types may cost an additional fee due to the added work needed to convert them.
Do I receive an ISBN number from you?
No, it is very important that you begin to organize your own ISBN before ordering your formatting. There is a website where you can purchase your own ISBN, www.ISBN.org. If you chose to print your book via CreateSpace, then they will supply you with an ISBN for the print version of your book. You can get your ISBN organized while we work on the formatting of your book if you choose to.
What files types do I receive from you?
If you are ordering for an eBook, then you will receive both an ePub file for eReader devices and also a MOBI file, which is to be used for Kindle. If you are purchasing formatting for a print book, you’ll receive a PDF formatted for Print On Demand standards. If you require anything specific, please ask during the ordering process.
Will your print formatting files work for all Print On Demand services?
The majority of all Print On Demand services have very similar requirements. However, if you have specific requirements, please feel free to request these during the ordering process.
What will happen after my formatting is completed and I require changes to the text?
We understand that often, there are going to be corrections which authors, editors, and publishers require to be made to the text. You will receive 15 free edits, once. After this edits are charged at $1 per edit, per format. Edits can be requested by completing the Edit Request Form on demand.
What if I have pictures, illustrations, graphs, text boxes, or tables? Will you be able to accommodate all of these?
We are happy to help with all of these. You must fill out how many of these elements your book contains during the ordering and checkout process.
Can you help me with adding design and decorative sections to my book to make it stand out?
We would be happy to help your book look fantastic! You can choose to have additional décor added for a fee of $25 per book format.
