Losing sales over unprofessional formatting is a real thing. In today’s world, your customers are expecting professional results.
As a full-service book designer, I will format your book for print, interactive PDF for download, and for Kindle/epub. Your files will meet industry standards in both appearance and in the design framework, ensuring approval at Amazon, CreateSpace, Draft2Digital, and IngramSpark.
