Budget Formatting by Jessica Montgomery

Hate formatting?
Don’t know how?
Don’t have the time?
Not enough money to hire someone to do a professional job?
Don’t have a Mac to use Vellum? Or can’t justify the expense?

I’m your girl!

I offer professional quality Print and eBook formatting for reasonable prices using Vellum. I have the drive to make your books shine. And whether you need formatting for print, ebook or both, I will have your project completed beautifully, professionally, and fast.

This is something I love doing, and if I can give you more time to write and less tedium and headaches, I’ll be a happy camper.

FICTION Formatting Rates 

  • Single-Book eBook and Print– $50
  • Boxed Set eBook and/or Omnibus Print– $80 for 3-5 books. +$10 for each additional book.

These are flat-rate fees. With Vellum, it produces ebooks for all retailers plus a print format with the click of a single button, so if you purchase these services, you will receive print and ebook, even if you don’t need one of the formats.

Note: For your back matter, make sure you give me the direct links to each of your books for all retailers to put in your Also By page. Vellum will spit out an ebook for each retailer, with retailer specific links. Also make sure you have a link to your book on your website for generic ebooks, for giveaways, ARCs, and other non-retailer things.

In addition to creating professional e-books that are cleanly formatted and guaranteed to work on all devices, I offer:

  • Personalized service
  • Fixed cost (no wonky commissions or license snares)
  • Clear, Fast Communication-I’m chained to a computer most days, so I provide quick and responsive answers to your questions, working together to make your ebook the best it can possibly be.
  • You will own the finished files.

Because each job is different, I’ll have to know exactly what you need before I can give you a precise quote.

Do not send me a file that has not been completely edited and is not ready for publication.

Upon signing the contract, I will send you an invoice for the required amount. The deposit is to be paid immediately to hold your appointment slot. The balance is due at the start of the job and is non-refundable unless it is determined by the formatter (me) that your manuscript is outside the scope of my capabilities, in which case all monies paid will be refunded. If your format runs over the limits as described within the contract, a new invoice will be generated for the amount equal to the extra work involved. This final fee is likewise non-refundable.

I thoroughly test all files before delivery, but in the event you run into problems, I will tweak files, within reason.  If you do something to try to edit the files that otherwise mucks up what I’ve done, you will incur additional charges for me to fix them.

Note: At this time, I do not format Non-Fiction. I’m eternally sorry for any inconvenience.
