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 and Non-Fiction Ebooks — excluding image heavy Ebooks.

What is included in formatting?

  • Simple, but clean, Ebook Formatting using the Vellum software.
  • 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).
  • One free update of links after the book goes live, if you don’t already have the links ahead of time.
  • Epub and Mobi files — up to 6 different retailer versions, if requested (a list can be found in the Form).
  • A choice between 3 different styles — links to samples can be found below:
    • Style 1 – Kindred – Sample downloadable EPUB and MOBI, as well as an easy to view PDF.
    • Style 2 – Artisanal – Sample downloadable EPUB and MOBI, as well as an easy to view PDF.
    • Style 3 – Meridian – Sample downloadable EPUB and MOBI, as well as an easy to view PDF.

What is NOT included in formatting?

  • No images — except for the cover.
  • 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.

What’s the process for formatting services?

  • Fill out the Ebook Formatting Request Form.
  • Email your cover file and your document file per the instructions at the bottom of the above form.
  • I’ll reply to your request within 48 hours. You’ll receive a price quote and time estimate, and I’ll ask any other questions I have.
  • You must accept the price quote before formatting work begins. I’ll contact you with any other questions as I’m formatting.
  • Once the formatting is complete, you will receive a bill via Paypal.
  • The bill must be paid before the formatted files are delivered.
  • Once you’ve paid, I’ll email you your files!
  • Please let me know if everything looks good — any comments and feedback is welcome as well!
  • Throughout the entire process, I’ll strive to keep communication open and reply to emails within 48 hours of receiving them.

What are the Extra Fees for formatting services?

Any discount codes do not apply to these fees.

  • $9 for up to 3 images (aside from the cover) included in the files — I won’t format image heavy titles at this time.
  • $9 for up to 6 more minor edits past the 3 included in the initial price. Minor edits include simple front/back matter updates (simple determined on a case-by-case basis).
  • $9 for mass updating all links if the number of links exceeds 6.
  • Major edits may be discounted compared to normal pricing depending on how extensive they are. Please contact me and I can discuss prices.
