How Do Our Book Formatting Services Work?

Did you know that most formatting companies providing ebook formatting services offer a package deal? This includes us at Author Services Australia. We offer ebook formatting and paperback formatting, but you get a package price when you choose both formats at the same time.

Why is this? We often get asked why getting ebook and paperback book formatting at the same time is cheaper than getting them done separately at different times. We’ll explain below in more detail.

For the book formatting process, we use the advanced design program Adobe InDesign.

We start with your manuscript in a word.doc and import that word.doc into Adobe InDesign. Once we have your book manuscript in Adobe InDesign, our experienced formatting team then apply all the correct formatting rules. This first step in the formatting process works on your paperback interior formatting.

When the paperback book formatting is completed, it’s exported as a PDF, ready to upload to your chosen platform.

Once you’re 100% happy with the paperback version, we use that completed PDF to create your ebook file. This could be either a Mobi or ePub file. It depends on what type of book you are getting formatted, fixed format or reflowable, and where you plan on self-publishing your books. That’s why we give you a discount if you choose both print and ebook formatting rather than just ebook formatting.

Even if you’re just planning on self-publishing an ebook, a paperback option is a good idea. It’s an excellent idea for special giveaways, promotions, or just for author events and book signings.


Where Can Australian Authors Self-Publish Their Ebook?

Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) offers both ebook and paperback POD options for free! Recently, IngramSpark Publishing also dropped their fees for new books and now offers Australian self-published authors another alternative self-publishing platform.

It’s 100% possible to format your ebook yourself if you are on a tight budget or have the hours to spend learning all the different programs involved. However, there are some fundamental rules to book formatting that you need to follow. Otherwise, you risk putting out a book that’s not formatted in a way that readers find attractive, and you could get a bad review or bad feedback.
