What is Interior Print Book Design and Formatting? And why do I need it?
The Interior Layout of your book and the design of your Book Cover are two of the most important steps you will take during the publishing process.
For Print on Demand, a PDF file formatted to the specific dimensions of your book, paperback, or hard cover is required. Also, your file must follow the printers required specifications.
Most importantly, the design of each page must do justice to all the hard work you put into your writing.

We provide print ready PDF files usable for any major print on demand company, including Createspace, Ingram, Lighting Source, and Lulu.
What do I need to provide?
Your finished manuscript, preferably in doc, docx format.

I can just upload a Word file to Amazon to publish my book. Why should I pay someone to format my book?
If you upload any file other than a mobi file, Amazon will automatically convert your file into the mobi format. During the conversion process the presentation might be altered and will not display the way you intended.
I want to include images, pictures, graphs in my manuscript. Can you do that?
Yes, we can include all of those elements in your book, both print and ebook.
How long will my formatting take?
Depending on the length of the manuscript, the process typically takes one week.
What if I don’t have my manuscript in a word document?
