What is included in the E-book Package?
Our E-book Package includes both E-PUB and MOBI files so that you may upload to Apple, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, Kindle/KDP and Google Play. Both files are formatted using your chosen theme. We guarantee that our files meet the formatting requirements for all five platforms.
What is included in the Print Package?
Our Print Package includes a PDF file, acceptable for CreateSpace and formatted using your chosen theme. Prior to sending you the file, we validate it ourselves, assuring that when you upload to CreateSpace you will receive zero errors.
Can you update my manuscript?
If we have previously formatted your manuscript, we would be happy to update it. Please see our guidelines here:
Can I upgrade my package?
Yes. If we have not yet completed your formatting, you can update your package and simply pay the difference between packages. If we have already completed your formatting, the costs of updates are: Ebook to print: $150. Print to Ebook: $100.
Will you place images in my manuscript?
Our formatting work is limited to author photos for either print or e-book packages. If requested, we will place an author photo in your manuscript. While we love visuals, they tend to interrupt the e-reader experience. For example, because each reader sets his or her device to a different screen setting, images with a white background reveal borders when read using the white font/ black background setting.
What resolution do I need for an author photo?
No less than 300 dpi. Images with fewer than 300 dpi lack clarity and return errors when checked via CreateSpace.
Can you format my manuscript based on a PDF file?
PDF files are difficult to work with as they are meant to be final-version documents and thus not intended to be edited. We accept word processor files: DOC, RTF, TXT, PAGES.
Can you upload my manuscript to Apple/Kobo/Barnes & Noble/Amazon for me?
No. It's not that we don't want to be helpful---we just don't want the responsibility of having access to your personal information included in those accounts! We can, however, direct you to some really helpful videos which illustrate how to upload to the various platforms. Trust us. It's easy.
