Interior Formatting FAQs

What does the process look like?

Once we receive your order through PayPal we will need you to email us your manuscript file in .doc, .docx, or .rtf format. This includes the text of your book, any acknowledgements, dedications, author bio, etc. We will typeset exactly what you give us, so please make sure it is proof ready and exactly how you’d like it to appear in your book. If you have an author photo send it with your bio. Photos must be hi-res (300 dpi or higher). They will appear in grayscale in the final PDF. Or, if you want, you can email us at: designs@mountainviewbooks.com at any time with this info. As soon as we receive your payment we can get started on your book!

What size should my book be?


The most common size for a trade paperback is 5.5 x 8.5.


Why should I have you format my book instead of doing it myself?


Because you should be busy writing your next book! Seriously, we take the stress out of formatting so you can focus on what you do best. You won’t have to worry about widows and orphans, dingbats, bleeds, point size, or kerning. We’ll make sure your book looks polished and professional.


What types of books do you format?


We format fiction and basic nonfiction. We reserve the right to pass on books with graphic violence, sexual situations, or extreme language.


How much does a custom design cost?


We can usually change out a font or dingbat for only a few extra dollars, but if you need something more customized, we are happy to send you a quote. If you’d like a custom quote, please click here and fill out the short form. Or send us an email at designs@mountainviewbooks.com


What if I need to change something at a later date?


We know that mistakes or typos do happen, so when you purchase an interior design from us it includes one free update to correct a word or typo here and there (as long as it is under ten words total). We make the changes and then re-send you the PDF. If you have typo changes after that we charge $15 per edit session plus $1 for each minor typographical change. Any changes beyond typos, such as changing images, revising text extensively, etc. would require a new design and cannot be made after the fact.
