PAGE LAYOUT / FORMATTING
The book formatting and interior layout process for your book is one of the most important steps in the publishing process … it delivers your story.
In the end, the presentation of your words is profoundly important. Your readers demand a comfortable reading experience and make no mistakes, they will be critical of any layout issues.
Interior design questions call 1300 88 58 58
Once you approve the book style sample, we complete the entire interior layout of the book and present you with an electronic proof. You get one (1) round of minor revisions to correct anything you missed (anything we missed is corrected for free). After this stage if you require additional author alterations a fee for service applies.
We provide you with a final checklist to triple check everything and once we receive this (and cover) the book is ready to print!
