Formatting

Paperback and Ebook Formatting

I’m now formatting in Vellum and have adjusted my rates accordingly. All ebooks include mobi and epub files.

Vellum Ebook/Paperback Basic Package

  • If you want just basic formatting without any frills or graphics. – $25

Vellum Ebook/Paperback Choices Package

  • If you want choices in the “styles” I use in Vellum, and you already have the graphics you want to use for the chapters, scene breaks, and title page, this is the package for you. – $35

Vellum Ebook/Paperback Star Package

  • If you want me to find images for your chapter headers or scene breaks, I can search for those and help you decide what works best. This package also includes if you want a full image title page for your paperbacks. – $50

InDesign Paperback (and Vellum ebook combo)

InDesign allows me to add graphics in places that Vellum might not. If you need something special done for paperbacks, then I’ll need to do it in InDesign. This program allows for a full bleed if you have graphics that go to the edge of the page. Pricing below lists just the paperback and then combo pricing beside it if you need ebook as well.

  • KDP under 30K — $40 ($60 with InDesign PB and Vellum ebook)
  • KDP  under 70K — $50 ($70 with InDesign PB and Vellum ebook)
  • KDP over 70K — $70 ($90 with InDesign PB and Vellum ebook)
  • KDP over 120K — $90 ($110 with InDesign PB and Vellum ebook)
