Manuscript Formatting

Your Deliberate Friend

Formatting for publishing can be a Fickle Fiend.

PastedGraphic-4When done properly it virtually disappears from the page. Your reader can get lost in your literary world, woven with words and crafted with care. Conversely, poor formatting, or formatting that is inconsistent with a reader’s expectations, is interruptive and distracting. It yanks your readers back and causes them to focus on the awkward spacing or mis-formatted text, not the story. It can even lead to bad reviews and poor sales.

Let us help you keep your reader engaged. We’ll work directly with you to produce custom-styled, publish-ready, electronic and print books files that will keep your readers focused on what matters, your writing.

Every book that we format is done with care and purpose, formatted specifically for your chosen publishing outlets.

We leave nothing to chance, so that you can focus on what you do best.
