Print and e-book interiors are designed to accomodate the requirements of technological book-making processes while remaining good looking and readable for your target audience. Design services start at $30 and covers choice of typeface, page layout, headers, footers, etc. If we typeset or format your book, the design fee is waived. 

Print typesetting services and formatting for e-books  start at one cent ($.01) per two (2) words, or $.0050 per word. A 50,000-word manuscript would cost $300 for either service. If both services are ordered, the first is charged at the normal price, and the second at 75% of the first. There is a minimum charge of $50. These charges apply to projects that are mostly straight text with front matter, chapter headings, and header and/or footers for page numbers.

Projects that include a table of contents, graphic images and captions, end notes, etc., and other elements will be charged by the job. Estimates prepared after initial consultation. Completed interior files are delivered as email attachments.

INTERIOR BOOK DESIGN

This is primarily a consulting service; you receive a short pdf file showing the design elements suggested for your project -- fonts and sizes, margins, page layout, header and footer design, decorative flourishes, images and other elements, in a two to three page document.

TYPESETTING

Your print project -- which includes promotional items such as flyers and brochures, post cards, business cards and other items as well as books -- will be laid out and typeset in QuarkXpress and output as .pdf files. Other file types may be accomodated by request.Output is black and white or color. Click HERE to see a screenshot.

FORMATTING

E-book manuscripts are converted to html files. Their word-processor formatting is stripped and added back via html tags. These include paragraph indents and/or blank line inserts, italics and boldface, block indents, and similar formatting elements. The completed html document is then converted to whatever electronic format the client specifies. Click HERE to see a screenshot and HERE to see an html sample.
