Every element of your book’s interior gets designed and formatted specifically for your book. We do not use templates.

Additional Services to Make Your Book the Best It Can Be
Fiction/Nonfiction Editing: $250/10k words
Professional editing makes your book better. Through our editing process, we pull out all the tricks to make your story flow, so readers remain engaged. Not sure if professional editing is worth the fee? Email us 1,000 words of your book and we’ll show what our editing can do for your story—for free.
Children's Book Illustrations: $900
Having the perfect illustrations for your picture or early reader book is vital. Otherwise, your book will feel flat and—even worse—unprofessional. Don’t have a great illustrator? We’ve got you covered. Note: Realistic illustrations cost extra.
Need an illustrator for your book? We’ve got you covered, and we’ll do it within your budget. Want some custom black-and-grey illustrations to sprinkle throughout your novel, nonfiction book, poetry collection, or middle-grade fiction? Let’s make it happen!
Your book is copyrighted the moment you write it. For that reason, many authors never file for an official copyright with the US Copyright Office. For those who do, we’ve created an easy-to-follow video that shows how. Rather have us do it? No problem!
