Formatting prices

formatting prices copy

After realising that forming a career around writing and setting out chairs for community meetings will not in fact buy us a castle and a small country to invade, we’re now extending our expertise *cough* to ebook and print book formatting.

So check out our prices. We promise we won’t rob you. We’ll save that for the banks 😉 We aim to format each ebook in 2 days, but we’ll let you know if it will take longer. Contact us for formatting at lynx@fireclawstudios.com or cat@fireclawstudios.com. For ebooks we use the Smashwords Nuclear method and a guide from writer Catherine Ryan. We’ve used this on our own books and have never had a problem with it.

If you would like fantastic, affordable book covers to make your book stand out, then check out our cover artist Ryan from Love Your Covers here.

  1. Right well I’ll be taking up the offer for the print services – I’ve never actually done the print thing and it’s time I started! I wondered, could you get some sort of grant for starting your own business? And you could go into pull on publishing as well.

    • it’s definitely time you started! Not sure about grants, as this is really just a side thing to the writing and we don’t qualify for any writing grants 😦
