Manuscript Formatting

A good formatter/typesetter goes through an author's manuscript one last time to format it for publishing. Formatting usually happens after the manuscript has gone through all the stages of editing and is ready for printing. 

If you pick me to be your formatter, I'll go through your manuscript and prepare it for print or ebook. I'll arrange the front matter and back matter of your book and create headers, footers, and page numbers while making sure you have adequate line spacing throughout. Last, but certainly not least, I'll ensure your novel has the appropriate style and font for your genre.

Work must be done in English and submitted only using Microsoft Word. You can submit as many manuscripts as you’d like at any time, but a service fee must be paid for each submission. The manuscript can be any subject or style, but it must be fiction, and the cost will vary depending on word count and book format. Once formatted, your manuscript will be prepared to upload to Google Play, iBooks, Kindle, Kobo, Nook, or as a Print PDF. Payment must be made before the service is completed.

For manuscripts less than 50,000 words, the cost is $50.00 for print and one ebook format. You will receive your formatted file within ten days of payment being made. 

For manuscripts between 50,001 and 75,000 words, the cost is $75.00 for print and one ebook format. You will receive your formatted file within ten days of payment being made. 

For manuscripts over 75,000 words, the cost is $100.00 for print and one ebook format. You will receive your formatted file within ten days of payment being made. 

There are no returns, refunds, or exchanges once the service is completed and once payment is made, it is final. If you are interested in this service, please fill out the form below.

I hired Jade Young from www.theeducatedwriter.com to proofread and format my manuscript in preparation for publication. Her work was both detailed and professional. In addition, the work was done in a timely fashion in conjunction with the dates agreed to on our contract. Jade was a pleasure to work with and was both accessible and accommodating in responding to my e-mails. I plan to use her services again in the future and would highly recommend her to other authors.

Having Jade at The Educated Writer format my book was a huge weight off my shoulders. Formatting was such a daunting process for me, and Jade took all of that stress away. She took my book from a manuscript to a novel, and working with her was so easy. She responded to emails promptly and welcomed feedback and suggested changes to the proofs. I will definitely work with Jade again when I publish my next novel!
