When it comes to the interior formatting of a manuscript, authors often fall into one of three camps.

1) Standard - The author does not have specific design or formatting ideas and would rather rely upon our expertise in formatting the book according to industry best practices based upon the manuscript's genre.  Authors in this camp are best served by the free Standard Interior Formatting option.

2) Custom - The author has very specific formatting requirements that often differ by chapter and/or even by page in some instances.   The establishment of a manuscript formatting style sheet rarely pertains to these books because the interior is so specific, and so custom that the author requires one-on-one, page-by-page input with the designer.  Authors in this camp are best served by the optional Custom Interior Formatting with Author Input option.

3) And then there are the authors who fall somewhere in between. Perhaps they have a general idea of the font they want to use, or the treatment of the headers or footers or chapter pages, etc.  Perhaps they want their final book formatted as closely as possible to their originally-submitted manuscript.  Authors in this camp are best served by the Enhanced Interior Formatting with Author Input option. Standard interior formatting comes included with every package and results in a professional design according to industry best practices for your genre.

Custom Interior Book Design

The initial custom interior formatting will be based upon your originally-submitted manuscript  and any formatting efforts you made in your original manuscript will serve as instructions for the custom interior book designer, of course, you can request specific changes on a per-page basis as necessary.

You may be contacted by the interior book designer for specific participation in the interior design of the manuscript at the sole discretion of the interior book designer. Outside of the direct communication initiated by the interior book designer, any additional communication concerning your interior design will be with your Author Representative.

Your manuscript will be formatted and designed manually and, as such, the potential for human error exists. There is no way to guarantee the complete absence of any grammatical, spelling, punctuation, or formatting errors originating from the custom interior book design process. It is the author's sole responsibility to review the formatted manuscript at the galley review stage, not only for the existence of any previous errors, but to locate and resolve new errors that may have been inadvertently introduced by the formatter during custom formatting. The Custom Interior Formatting fees are non-refundable.
