OPTION 1: Professional Formatting & Publishing Service on Amazon for Kindle Books
OPTION 2: Professional Formatting & Publishing Service on Amazon for Paperback Books
Many writers are technologically-challenged or do not have the time to learn how to publish books on Amazon. I can help you with my “done-for-you” service.
Amazon publishing is a superb revenue source, giving you access to Amazon’s online bookshops in every country they have a footprint, including the USA, UK, Europe, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and India. You receive between 35/70 % royalties and Amazon takes care of all the sales and delivery processes. There are no further publishing costs involved.
Properly formatted Kindle books may be read on any digital device… including computers, Kindle Readers, smartphones, tablets, iPads, etc., giving you a very wide readership and access to literally millions of people. I do not use automatic software to produce the kindle book (which tends to give some “interesting” outcomes!), but hand-code each book so it looks professional on any device the reader may use.
Why shouldn’t you become the next Amazon Best Seller?

You will be required to supply the PDF cover and PDF contents files (without the ISBN numbers or local printer information if you have published locally). Size required by Amazon for normal paperback books: 6×9 inches. You may select which Amazon publishing service you wish to use, i.e. KDP or CreateSpace.
OPTION 4: Professional Formatting Service for Other Formats
I will prepare your book for publishing in other formats (e.g. ePub) and guide you through publishing it in 51 countries through Smashwords, an online publishing company that publishes to Barnes & Noble and a variety of online bookshops (except Amazon) for all digital devices. Includes help with royalty payment and tax issues. There are no further publishing costs involved and royalties range from 60/85 %. Price includes project management, administrative costs and author support.
It is absolutely essential for books to be well-written and edited. Authors tend to fall in love with their own words and badly-written books invite negative reviews, which will cost you sales.
