Self Publishing Services (An Offer From Mike's Colleague, Robert Kauffman)

The self-publishing revolution is growing in popularity and with good reason. You as an author are no longer confined to the traditional "brick and mortar" limitations of traditional publishing. Today, you can easily and quickly get your books printed and distributed online to sites such as Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com. Many authors using Amazon and similar marketing platforms are finding success in self-publishing. Some self-published authors are surpassing traditionally published best-selling authors in sales and climbing to the top of "The New York Times" bestseller list.

If you are an author looking to self-publish or a small publishing house I can assist you with cover design and formatting, to ensure your book stands out from the pack and looks truly professional.

Please note that these are formatting and design services only. They are indeed crucial to your success, however, let me be clear that I am not a publisher and I do not get involved with actually publishing or marketing your book. Yet in most cases you will save both time and money when you present your publisher with a book that has already been prepared for publication, avoiding their often costly "packages" and extra services.


Interior Book Formatting

Need your manuscript print or E-Book ready? Looking for reasonable prices? Look no further. My book formatting and layout services might be just what you need.

I offer professional level book formatting, for a work of fiction I charge just $1.00 per page, which is equal to 300 words and for a non-fiction I charge $2.00 per page. I charge 50% upfront and then the remainder is due upon completion of your manuscript.

My turn around time is normally only 6 days, please allow up to 10 days for larger manuscripts greater than 300 pages or non fictions with a lot of images, sidebars, text boxes etc.

For example, a 250-page fiction manuscript would cost just $250.00 to have professionally formatted.

And a non-fiction of the same length would cost $500.00. Please note, not all non-fiction run $2.00 per page. Some will qualify for the fiction price of 1.00, or a negotiated price if they are not formatting intensive. If you are unsure about your books cost, please contact me and I'll give you a free quote.

A professional print ready layout is a key element when it comes to the quality of your book’s overall appearance.

What you get from my service:
I set the page size to your specified dimensions, correct any extra white pages or spaces, set your paragraph indents, add in any specified mixed fonts, add page numbers, set page margins, page justifications, add page headers and footers, add in chapter starts, create a copyright page, create a Table of Contents and set the book gutter according to the page count of your book.
