Print Book Formatting

A paperback copy of your book is just as important as an ebook copy. In fact, many people like the idea of holding a physical copy of a book in their hands as opposed to an electronic one. If you're an author who completed a manuscript and had it proofread, let me polish up the book's interior for you. I have ten years of experience in writing and formatting my books, and the basic print book formatting service includes...
