Ebook formatting and print layout design
You've spent weeks, months, years writing your book. You spent hundreds if not thousands on editing and a book cover. But what do most authors do after that? They upload their Word file straight to KDP or download a template for a print book to copy and paste into and call it a day. What's wrong with this?
Well, for your ebook, Word to Kindle by automatic software conversion can produce broken formatting, unsupported characters turning into those blocks with upside down question marks in them, and hundreds of lines of junk code that costs you $$$ when Amazon deducts their download fees.
For print, there are hundreds of decisions that go into layout from font (nothing screams "self-published" to readers and reviewers like Size 12 Times New Roman), to margins, to things that Word processing software can't even do, like adjust spacing between letters and individual lines to ensure that you aren't left with widowed or orphaned text and still have every page begin and end with exactly the same margins.
Luckily, there is another option. I can take your manuscript and format it for print or ebook to make it look like anything the Big 5 are able to produce. This isn't some Fiverr gig where your book gets minutes of attention. Don't let interior design be the limiting factor on the success of your book.
Rates:
$5 per book plus a per word fee of $.003 for first 25,000 words and $.002 after that for ebooks
$25 per book plus a per finished page fee of $5.

I can vouch for Wayne - he's the real deal and has done work on many covers (and interior illustrations) for my books... check out BERSERKER and THE ISLAND OF TERROR in my sig for examples...

Kelly,

sorry, I've just seen this; thanks for letting us know.  I'll take a look and remove the one without the banner.  I'm not sure if there's a glitch or not, but we'll look into it!

Betsy

Hi Betsy, I have had the same issue with my addition to the yellow pages. I have three listings, but only the one with the banner should be active. Thank you for looking into this!

Hi established and aspiring authors!

I just wanted to drop you a quick email to introduce myself. My name is Shayne of Machovi Creative, a new novel formatting design company.

As I'm building my formatting portfolio, I'm extending an invitation to design your next eBook project for free! I'd really just love the opportunity to work on new, creative projects!

You can find some examples of my previous design work here: http://facebook.com/machoviprods

Send me a direct email to machoviprods@gmail.com if you're interested in one free eBook format / design. Of course, I also do covers, print formatting, trailers, press releases, and more.

Thanks so much! Looking forward to chatting,  :D

I'd like to post my cover design and formatting services in the Yellow Pages, but I am unclear on exactly where to start a discussion thread to link back to. Do I start it here in the Writer's Cafe in general or somewhere else. I do not want to post it in the wrong spot and incur the wrath of mods, or anyone else. Please let me know where the appropriate place is. Thank you very much! (Hopefully this isn't just me being clueless because it's 3am.) :-)

This is great! Never knew such a directory existed.

Question: I offer 2 similar services that tie in with each other (beta reading and proofreading) and also file conversion and formatting.

Can I add both services separately, or is there a way to combine them?

Thanks a lot,

Dave

Hi there!  I recently added my services to the Yellow Pages. Then I updated it with a new banner; when I did, it seemed to create a second listing for me. I now see my listing twice, once with the banner, once without. I've noticed a few people's services listed multiple times, as well. Is this just a glitch when we update our listing? Thanks!

Kelly,

sorry, I've just seen this; thanks for letting us know.  I'll take a look and remove the one without the banner.  I'm not sure if there's a glitch or not, but we'll look into it!

Betsy,
Just wanted to mention that it did the same for me just recently. I'm not sure if I may have clicked something incorrectly (later updates did not create a second listing, only that first one). I waited a bit to see if it would go away on its own, as it seemed to have shown up, but it didn't. I've manually deleted the second listing but thought I'd let y'all know just in case.

Hi Jack -
Go to the main Writers' Cafe board (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/board,60.0.html), and on the mid righthand side (just above the listing of all the individual posts) click on 'New Topic.' Then create a thread there about whatever service you're offering.

Browse some of the other threads (look for titles that seem to be offering services) if you need inspiration for what to say there. I sure needed some! I'm not good at selling myself. (c: 

Once you've got your "advertisement" written up, hit 'Post.' That will create your personal forum thread; then copy its URL and paste it into the 'Forum Thread' field.

Good luck, and welcome!
