Self-Published Book Formatting

professionally publish and sell your book

The Perfect Solution for the Self-Published Author

The benefits of being a self-published author are many, namely that you get to maintain all of the creative control over your book. Some of the elements you must handle on your own, however, are best left to a professional, and the interior formatting of your book is definitely one of them!

A beautifully—and correctly—formatted book will be taken as seriously as its traditionally published peers, but one that looks DIY will not.

Leave the technical work to us: we will format the interior of your novel, memoir, or nonfiction book for e-book and print, plus upload it to the various online platforms (or help you do it), to ensure you have an elegant, professional-looking book ready to meet its readership!
