Because I keep getting asked… just a quick run-down

Formatting

Now it’s possible to format on your own.  Nadia Lee has a fantastic book on it.

If you don’t want to do it on your own, you can have somebody do it for you.

I use LK Campbell.

From her site, formatting a book runs roughly:

Normal fees for basic formatting (based on word count) are as follows:
Short Stories Under 10K – $10.00;
Short Stories 10K-20K $15.00
Novella 20K-45K – $20.00
Novel-length 45K-80K $25.00
Novel-length 80K-100K – $30.00
Novel-length 100K-125K – $35.00
For very long novels $35.00 + $5.00 for each 10K over 125K

And she can do it in Kindle, Nook & Smashwords formats.
