FORMATTING YOUR BOOK FOR PRINT PRODUCTION
CALL TO DISCUSS A PRINT FORMATTING QUOTE
Ardent Writer formatting experts will take your Word document and using publishing software generate an easy to upload print production file for Amazon/Kindle Direct Publishing or Ingram/Ingramspark. The result will be a beautiful and professional-looking printed book in PDF format for the book’s interior. If you have created or bought a cover design, we can also insure that the file is in the correct PDF format for the cover.
We can include images as well as text for the print production file. All images will be setup for color and the file should print fine if the author self-publishes with a black and white interior.
Call us to discuss your needs. Your quote will be scalable to the number of words and images you decide to use.
Note that our quote will be based on a manuscript that has been fully edited by the client before submittal to AWP. We encourage all submissions to be fully scrubbed by the author. However, if the author feels additional editing is needed, AWP can provide professional editing for both content and copy.

OUR FEATURED SERVICES
Ardent Writer can provide start to finish publishing services for the authors who don’t want to be troubled with the work to move their manuscript through editing, proof-reading, formatting, cover design and submission to wholesalers. We can provide these services on either print or ebook versions! Nonetheless, if the author desires to do some of the work themselves, such as full editing, they can tailor the selected services to their needs.
Using Indesign publishing software, we can prepare a print-ready interior and cover for your use in self-publishing your book that will sparkle and have a professional look. Your input to the look of the interior will be taken before formatting starts.
If you need your book put into a ready-to-use eBook file, simply send your manuscript to AWP where our experienced staff can polish the document into the right format for use with self-publishing companies such as Kindle Direct Publishing or Ingramspark. We will include an epub or other eBook format as requested that will contain an embedded table of contents, allowing for easy search by any buyer. AWP can include images too!
Ardent Writer will work with you to advance a cover to your specifications. With a telephone discussion the author can propose elements for his personal treasure and even submit photos he has chosen for background images for his book. Pricing is dependent upon the complexity of the proposed cover design by the author.
Ardent Writer can submit your book to the wholesaler for you. We will fill out all forms, upload files, create metadata to enhance SEO, and talk to the wholesaler if necessary over any issues with publishing your book. Pricing is dependent on the range of support an author requires for his manuscript after a discussion with AWP.
