Book Formatting Services

You've finished your book and now you want to publish it. Congratulations. Your next step is to format the interior of your book so readers can enjoy it.
It can be a time-consuming task making the inside of your book look equal to one produced by one of top publishers.
That's where this service comes in. Instead of having to buy specialist software yourself or knowing what the standards are that you'll need to stick to, I can do it all for you.

The Gunman Novella Example

I did the cover layout / typography, taking the original artwork and making it into a book cover. I also did the interior book formatting with a custom title page and a custom chapter graphic - click the button below to see inside.

Custom Title Pages

I can create a full length custom title page graphic, instead of the standard text based one for $20.

Got a Project?

If you have a book you'd like formatted, please fill out the form below and I'll get back to you asap and get things rolling for you.
I usually complete projects much faster, however, I only guarantee to complete them within 5 business days. Extra-long or complicated books / box sets or unusually busy periods can slow things down. If your order is more urgent than 5 business days, please let me know now so I can do my best to prioritize it.
Arcane Covers Logo
Hi! My name is Karen Dimmick.
I've loved fantasy and magic for as long as I can remember & have been in the publishing industry for nearly a decade.
I know how important is it for a book to look its best, and for potential readers to be able to tell at a glance it's a book they'll enjoy. Without that, even great stories go unread.
As you'll see from my testimonials, my clients love working with me because I'm easy to work with, communicate well and deliver on time, like you'd expect any professional to do.
Born in England, I now live in Florida, USA with my husband. I've traveled the world, living in Europe and Asia. I've had my own bestselling non-fiction book, as well as fiction books, so I've seen both sides of the cover design process.
I believe authors should be able to give their books every possible chance to succeed, with a cover that attracts readers and meets the reader's expectations for the genre.
That's why I created Arcane Covers - to help you make your book shine.
