Editing levels can be purchased separately or in packages, as desired. Package options are cheaper, so think about your end goal before you decide which one you want.

ebook Formatting

We also offer an ebook formatting service. This produces a document that is ready to be uploaded to most major ebook self-publishing services (such as Smashwords and Kindle Direct Publishing). It includes:

  • Front matter checking, including copyright statements
  • Back matter checking
  • Table of contents creation and linking
  • Styles, layout, and formatting

We will provide the file in epub, .docx, or Pages format, as requested.

Note: front and back matter content is to be provided by the author. We are happy to provide advice and check to make sure everything is present and correct.
