You're Ready to Publish Your Manuscript But You Don't Know How to Format It

You've made a huge effort to get your manuscript to the point of publishing. It's ready to fly! The only thing holding you back now is the formatting required for uploading to a platform as an e-book or the print-ready file required by the printer. It all seems too complex and technical. You're a bit overwhelmed or nervous about doing it yourself. 

You don't want to upload a document that looks awful or does strange things when viewed on the multitude of different devices used by readers. You don't want readers to give up on you and your wonderful book because of terrible formatting. 

Relax. When I format your manuscript you'll have properly formatted documents to publish as an e-book that will operate correctly on a range of devices, or a print-ready file to be printed as a paperback. You can even order both versions. 

Your book will be published to professional standards for your readers to enjoy. 

 

How Formatting Will Help You Publish Your Professional Book

 

Step1

Tell Me What You Need and Book Your Formatting

Complete a form giving the details of your formatting requirements. I'll need to know whether you want formatting for e-book, paperback, or both. 

I'll need details such as the size of the book (if paperback), your ISBN numbers, and any specific text styles and features you'd like included in your book.

I format texts that are predominantly print. If you have a picture book, lots of images, or require other visual design features, you'll need another professional who provides formatting with graphic design. 

Once I understand your requirements and your timeline for the project, I'll confirm your booking.

Step2

Send Me Your Document

Once I have your document, I'll start formatting. 

I'll keep in touch with you through the process so that we can quickly address queries and make any necessary adjustments. Early on, I'll send you a short sample so that you can confirm your chosen styles and make any changes before too much of the work is underway.

Step3

Your Formatted Document is Returned

Once your formatting is complete, I'll return your document to you. 

You'll upload your e-book to your chosen platform(s), or send your print-ready file to your printer. Soon you'll see your e-book for sale online, or hold your beautiful paperback in your hands. 

Congratulations! You're the author of a brand new book.

What these Authors Say about Me

Author Tom  E. Moffatt
Tom E. Moffatt Author of Barking Mad
I highly recommend The Story Polisher. My manuscript had been through several edits and proofreads, and despite being quietly confident that there were no mistakes, I thought I’d get one more pair of eyes to go over it. And I’m so glad I did! The Story Polisher found four or five glaring errors that were missed by other professionals, as well as far too many inconsistencies and formatting issues. She finished the whole job within 48-hours, her communication was exceptional and the price very reasonable. I will certainly be getting all my manuscripts polished from now on.

I recommend having your manuscript brought to life by Vicki. Her thoughtful suggestions will enhance your literary work. She is a skilled and accurate proof reader: thorough, meticulous and efficient. You'll find her to be knowledgeable, reliable, and encouraging. Her support, and contributions to the Rotorua Writers Group have been valuable, and appreciated by our members.

I've had Vicki critique some of my writing. Her feedback has always been spot-on, she's caught all kinds of mistakes, and offered suggestions on pacing, tension, and character development -- and better still, she offered honest feedback in a way that left me feeling energised and ready to tackle those edits. I love working with her. I was fortunate enough to work with Vicki on formatting an anthology for a local writers group. Her professionalism in making sure that their ebook was formatted correctly was second-to-none. She offered suggestions, listened to feedback, and made sure that the manuscript shined and was free of any errors. Can't recommend her enough.
