Formatting Fairies

Services Offered by the E-Book Formatting Fairies 

You do the writing, we'll do the work to get your books ready for e-book and print distribution!

E-pub/Mobi File Creation

E-pub is the industry standard format preferred by most retailers, except for Amazon, which prefers Mobi files. We can prepare both types of files for you, with or without customization. Without customization will give you an E-pub file you can use at Barnes & Noble, Kobo and Apple. Customization will give you that same file with live links to your other books on each platform, which makes it easier for readers to buy your other books direct from their devices. 

Generic E-pub and Mobi output: $50 per book

Customized E-pub and Mobi output: $50 per book, plus:

  •  Customize for Amazon: $20
  • Customize for Barnes & Noble: $20
  • Customize for Apple: $20
  • Customize for Kobo: $20

**Customization is only necessary when you have other books for sale on the various platforms so you can link directly from the file to your other books on each platform.

Please note: After your books are exported into ePub and Mobi format, expect additional charges for corrections to typos and author-related mistakes found during review. Depending on the extent of the corrections, the charge will range from $25-$35 due to the time incurred in making the corrections and then re-running/re-validating the e-books.

 

Formatted Layout for CreateSpace (Print on Demand via Amazon) 

Preparing print-ready files for on-demand printing requires some know-how that we can provide. Your book will be laid out in the industry-leading InDesign software and outputted in PDF format, ready for upload to CreateSpace.

CreateSpace Layout: $150 for first 75,000 words/$20 for each additional 10,000 words

CreateSpace Cover Preparation: $150 if the cover was done by one of our designers/$175 if the cover was generated elsewhere.

Cover Design

Our team of world-class graphic designers stands ready to help you find the perfect cover for your book. Appealing to online audiences requires that a cover "pop" on the screen, and our designers know just how to make that happen. Our fee structure depends on the amount of research and consultation required. If an author comes to us and says, "I want exactly this," he or she will be looking at the lower end of the scale. If an author has no idea what he or she wants, the charge will be higher. Contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
