Ebook Formatting Services

Please read the details below about Haunted Unicorn Publishing’s Ebook Formatting Services. And then if you want to request my services, fill out and follow the directions on this Form.

What will I format?

  • Fiction Ebooks — at this time Haunted Unicorn Publishing is only formatting fiction, as that is what I have experience with.
  • Non-Fiction Ebooks — this will be offered in the future, once I learn more and develop my skills with this genre.

What is included in formatting?

  • Simple, but clean, Ebook Formatting.
  • Maximum 2 week turn around. Normally, it won’t take this long, but wiggle room is necessary due to work load and possible emergencies that crop up. You will be notified of the expected completion date.
  • Any fixes and changes that were Haunted Unicorn Publishing’s mistake — human error does happen, but I’m happy to fix my mistakes as long as you let me know!
  • Up to 3 edits of minor spelling and grammar tweaks — when you realize you need to change some things in your book, I’m willing to update your files if the changes are minor (minor decided on a case-by-case basis).
  • 1 Epub2 file (and 1 Mobi file of the exact same if requested) — if you want different versions for various retailers (more than 1 Epub file), there is an extra charge per version.
  • Looking for examples? Here’s an Epub and a Mobi you can download to look at!

What is NOT included in formatting?

  • No images — except for the cover.
  • No bells and whistles like drop caps and embedded fonts. This is simple, but clean, formatting.
  • Proofreading and editing of the book, front matter, and back matter. It is the author’s responsibility to make sure all information is ready to be formatted. Don’t send unedited material!
  • Major edits. If you extensively revise your book and need it reformatted, you’ll need to put in a new request and pay the required fees.
  • Immediate turn around. I can’t do rush jobs at this time, sorry.
