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 per book 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. You will receive your formatted file within ten days of payment being made. 

For manuscripts over 75,000 words, the cost is $100.00. 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. Email me at theeducatedwriter@gmail.com, with the subject line: Formatter, and I will contact you within forty-eight hours. Please do not send your manuscript until I reach out to you.

NOTE: If you purchase three or more formats at the same time you will receive a 15% discount.

Reviews

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.
