    Colleen just formatted a non-fiction ebook for me for POD, epub and mobi.  I wanted it to look as good as I good make it. She did a superb job and I'd have no hesitation in recommending her.

    Thank you, Wezelrox! For your support and time spent with me. I think we made a pretty good team!

    Everyone, I have a new program open and it's available to everyone: my sample4Sample program gives you the chance to sample your book in print-quality typesetting for FREE. All I need is for you to e-mail the front matter and first-chapter sample of your book to my e-mail at [email protected], and within 48 hours I'll send you back the sample in a potential design.

    Also, (as we can see from wezelrox's lovely review) I've opened up to formatting ebooks. Any and all! The prices are on the first post (and more updated here than on my website. I'll be updating that soon with my new program/prices, too).

    Have a great evening, everyone :)

    Hey, guys! Just popping in to show off some more paperback book and ebook examples!

    Here's our recently recreated Fairy Tale Novelette, A Masque of Shadow. I've reformatted the .mobi, created an .epub, as well as formatted the book interior and converted the ebook cover to a full paperback book spread.

    Also, I'm still running my sample4Sample program, where you send me the first chapter of your book and I show you what I've got-totally free! Just send inquiries to my e-mail at [email protected] or check out my Time to Consult? page on my website. :)

    Now for some recent examples on the Masque of Shadow Interiors and cover(Ebook first, cover and POD interior second):

    Thanks, guys!

    I just want to put my two-cents in recommending Colleen (CSheehan). She's crazy-smart, has a great eye and is tremendous fun to work with. I hope we'll be able to work together for a long time.

    That's okay, sugar. I don't understand the logic behind the bialy, either.

    Hello, everybody! I've got some more examples of what I've been up to recently!

    But first, a nice word from a non-kb member I worked for :)

    "Before I found write.Dream.repeat, I just had a basic word document. When it was all done, I had an actual book! This company effortlessly transforms your work into a beautiful masterpiece, and won't stop until you are 100% satisfied. I will never you another formatting service again!" - Janine Carbone

    First I'll show the ebook I did for her: Wildflower

    And then works form other KB members! First, Kimberly Loth's Destroyed,

    And Micah Ackerman's The Third Gender

    Finally, I have a couple of logo icons to sell! They're just $10.00 a piece as is ($15.00 a piece if you would like something added to it), and they can be used wherever you may need some branding recognition. If anyone wants one just leave me a private message. :)

    Thank you, everyone!

    Can I just add here that Colleen is amazing and fabulous at what she does. She's also exceedingly fun to work with. I think our relationship will be my second-most successful one (the first being my longstanding and still  exciting relationship with my espresso machine).

    I plan on working with her on every one of my books, unless she becomes too successful to bother with the likes of me.

    Hire her, but try to stagger yourselves a bit. I'd be totally farked without her.

    Colleen did an AMAZING job on my books. Seriously, I am so so pleased. She's super easy to work with too. She listens to what you want. Thank you Colleen.

    Kim

    P.S. I just ordered my proofs from createspace and I can't wait to see what they look like :-).

    Dawn and Kim,

    Thank you! I'm so glad you're both so pleased! Being farked aside, you're both great to work with, too. I want amazing clients so I can design for amazing people!

    In fact, I'd love to have more amazing people.

    Here's another example of an ebook I designed for Raventide Books itself.

    Happy Wednesday, everyone!

    Everyone, the $25.00 paperback interior formatting special is back!

    I'm also moving into web design. You can get a website designed by me on WIX! WIX is convenient because it's little-to-no coding, offers free access to Google Analytics with a premium package, has a built-in stock photo search via BigStock (only $2.99 per image!), offers the ability to purchase your domain through them, and is builder oriented so if you ever want to go in and change your bio or the blurb of your book, you can once I transfer your finished site to you.

    Here are some examples of my work so far. I plan on growing this list, so I hope someone is interested!

    Type: Splash page
    Description: One or two pages with links to separate blog and book website. Good for those who want a 'business card' online, and for those published by small presses with a lot of outside links. Features: image optimization, style reflecting your books/genre style, branding optimization in imagery, effects, favicon, etc. Images provided by author, save one or two stock photos found by designer.
    Price: $65.00

    http://csheehanwrites.wix.com/tamiles

    Type: Full Website
    Description: Up to 8 pages with detailed written content (provided by author).

    I'm going to be expanding my portfolio quite a bit in the upcoming weeks, but I look forward to helping everyone get an affordable, reliable upgrade to their website so we can help further your brand and get your name out there right! Just look at Dawn Lee McKenna in the first post in this thread! She got the Prawny Bundle, and since she's been selling so well in the past two weeks it was extremely important for her image that she present her readers with a professional look.

    I'm excited to get started!

    Until I get a stronger customer base! They have to be a kboards member, and they should also purchase one other service to be eligible, whether that's .mobi formatting, web design, a logo, business card, or whatever. :)

    Thanks so much for considering suggesting my service!(!!!!!!!)

    I'm having a busy week formatting a children's picture book, formatting another e-book for kindle, and working on our own personal website, but I still have some slots open for the end of the month.

    I also added the official page for my first package! Check it out here, so we can make you and your next book look well-designed and well-branded.

    Fark fark fark!

    I told you that you were soon going to be too fancy and busy for me. We need to finalize the cover for The Cricket Jar around February 17, plus have the first three chapters formatted. Then we need to format the rest of the ebook pages by the 28th and the paperback by whenever, so go ahead and book what you need to book for those.

    I solemnly swear I will sleep before sending final pages. I solemnly swear, for I do not want you to forsake me.

    One of my best Christmas presents this year was my divine calendar book so let me look upon it and see what secrets it contains.

    Hmm... yes... yes...


    Alright. I'll message you with the available dates with your schedule. We'll get it done! No worries.

    Still open, everyone! Specifically Feb 1 - 6, 14-28. The time it takes to get through your order depends on the type of service you order and how often you check your e-mail/if we're in similar time zones. Usually I have lots of conversation early in the project (because I want to get it perfect by you!) and then things go faster from there.

    I will work as closely with a client as the client wants. I'm totally into the author having as much control as they want in the final product of their ebook, whether that's a bunch or not much at all. Either way, it's our time to design books that sell. :) Or a print interior, cover conversion, website, whatever you'd like!
