Why Professional Fiction Formatting Makes Sense!

If you have been struggling with your fiction formatting, then it’s time to forget the stress and leave it to a professional!


You put a lot of effort into your book, but you’re also looking to save some money throughout the self-publishing journey. It’s always a balance as an indie author or a self-published author. Where do you try and save some money? On professional fiction formatting? How do you know which part of the process is worth investing in and what you can do without? So again, it’s a balancing act.

Realistically, the truth is that the whole book is worth investing in, and speaking from personal experience, I would rather wait a little longer and release a book that’s perfect, rather than rush or try and cut corners to release a book that I skipped a couple of steps on.

3 Reasons Why High-Quality Fiction Formatting Makes Sense!

One. Professional Formatting Is Easier to Read!

Not only is professional formatting designed to make your book easier to read, but it also makes it easier to read on multiple platforms and devices. Readers these days use a variety of different electronic devices to read ebooks. It could be a phone, tablet, iPad, Kindle, or Reader. So, you need to ensure that your fiction book is formatted correctly and displayed correctly on as many different devices as possible. Regardless of what your readers are using to read your book, you want it to look great.

When it comes to paperback books, incorrectly formatted interiors can be a real nightmare. Have you ever tried reading a book, but you’re constantly having to try and break the spine to see the full sentence or move your hands around the edges of the book? That’s a book that’s been formatted incorrectly.


Two. Professional Formatting Adds Décor to Your Book!

One of the design features that we can incorporate into your fiction book is beautiful décor that perfectly matches your genre and book.

In addition, décor can be added to chapter headings throughout the book to add a little flair and personal style to your fiction book. Below are some examples of fiction formatting décor. However, ideally, we take inspiration from your book cover to help us find the right interior décor to suit your book.

Three. Professional Formatting Is Affordable

A lot of new authors incorrectly assume that fiction formatting is expensive and time-consuming. Wrong!

In reality, you could have your fiction book professionally formatted for a few hundred dollars. Great formatting doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg! There are also some great formatting programs that you can use if you have the time, skill, and patience to learn them for yourself.

Most of our fiction formatting packages for print and ebooks start at around $425. When you consider how much you spend on marketing, editing, and cover design, fiction formatting is just a small percentage of that. It makes no sense, even if you’re a self-published author, to cut any corners when it comes to formatting.
