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.

Book Formatting Prices

I will take your manuscript from a Word doc and format it according to traditional publishing standards. A variety of formats and paperback sizes (including large print versions) are available.
The word count is the word count on your Word doc that includes all the front and back matter - ie everything you need in the book. All the info needs to be in the Word doc before I start.
Formatting also includes: placement of 2 full page images (eg maps) and 2 smaller images (eg author photo or advertisement for follow up books), the copyright page, dedication page,  title page, acknowledgements page, about the author page (with links to social media / website) and the table of contents

I work with a 50% deposit upfront and the rest due at delivery.
You can also have a fully licensed graphic (from DepositPhotos.com) to be used as a chapter image for an extra $10. For example:

Box Set Formatting

For multi-author box sets, please add $5 per volume (new author / story / book) to cover the additional back matter for each author (eg 'About the Author' pages, or 'Other Books By The Author' pages.)

Custom Title Pages

I can create a full length custom title page graphic, instead of the standard text based one for $20.
However, this is only available if I've done your cover or the typography for your cover.

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.
