A complete book formatting package, including a custom, full book cover (for print and Kindle) and interior formatting for both print and Kindle formats. (Add an .epub version to your package for only $25 more.)


You will receive:

1 Full-Color Cover Design - full cover for print book - Price includes up to four stock photo images, and fonts selected to coordinate with both the cover images and the overall feel/themes of your book to create a unique, eye-catching cover just for you, formatted to fit the trim size you set. To ensure that you won't find a carbon-copy cover on anyone else's book, I will search for images that haven't been widely used, AND I will alter and combine the images we do find to make them uniquely yours. (For details, please see my How it Works page.) Of course, you are always welcome to commission your own artwork for the cover. I'd be happy to recommend some fabulous artists, if you wish. This price also includes formatting the spine and back cover of your book to be both eye-catching and easy to read.

It's Complicated - Sample book cover design by VBartles Design


Interior (black-and-white) POD & Kindle Formatting for up to 300 pages - Even the littlest details make a difference when formatting a book. And I pay attention to the little details. This includes (at no extra charge) things that some people might consider "extras." You will receive, included in the package price, fancy swashes to signal scene breaks, chapter titles formatted to match your cover font, and different fonts to indicate things like letters, diary entries, and emails. (Note: extra fonts are for the print formatting only, as ebooks don't recognize different fonts and will revert to the default font anyway.)

As with all of my design packages, this DOES NOT INCLUDE editing/copyediting, or proofreading of your manuscript or cover text. Please make sure that your file is fully edited and free of typos before ordering this design package. (If needed, I can suggest a few great editors/copyeditors for you.) I will work to ensure that the finished product is visually appealing and formatted properly, but I cannot be responsible for typos or grammar errors in the finished book or cover art.

Optional Add-On - $25: Add an .epub version to your package, so you'll be ready to share your book across a variety of ebook retail sites.

Or, if you only need part of this package (cover design only - or just the interior formatting), please contact me, and we can create a custom package to fit your needs.

*Package prices listed include the cost of royalty-free stock images licensed for your design package, up to the number of images noted on the package detail page. These are basic image licenses only - for use on things like book covers and promotional materials. If you need an extended license, or if your design requires more artwork than the number of images allowed in the package description, I would be happy to help you find the perfect options as inexpensively as possible. (Note: you will need an extended license if you plan to use the images on products for sale where the main value of the product is in the image - like t-shirts or mugs. You will also need an extended license if you will be distributing more than 500,000 copies of your book or swag items.)

** Note: Package prices DO NOT include proofreading/copy editing. Please make sure to proofread all of the information you want included before submitting, as I will not be responsible for typos/misinformation in your final images (unless the mistakes are a result of a copy/paste error on my part).
