“Absolutely amazing. Fast, beautiful, professional work. I’m indebted to her kind service and generosity.”

R.J. Conte, authoress of The End of the Dream and Lucent Sylph

I have a passion for interior formatting
and desire to help produce quality books.

As an author myself, I understand publishing the best version of your story can be pricey. And, of all the items to pay for, formatting is one of those that can be tempting to do-it-yourself.

But a poorly designed interior can be just as distracting to a readers’ experience as typos and grammatical errors, and there’s more to producing an interior that adds to the story’s tone than learning to wield templates and software.

That’s where I come in. Offering quality results in two basic formatting options: One Pass and Two Pass.

Sample image only.

“KaLyn did LOVELY work on my novel, was pleasant and easy to work with, and communicated quickly and effectively. She was patient with me and passionate about making it the best it could be. I will absolutely work with her again! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!”

Erin Winters, author of The Cost of Humanity

Design work begins as a wide-open field of opportunity. Narrowing the choices and then making adjustments afterward can add a lot of time to the process. Which in turn increases the cost.

But being determined to offer economical options without sacrificing quality, I focused on ways to reduce the time spent narrowing design choices and the number of post-formatting revisions. The result was a streamlined process that includes a fixed amount of upfront selections and an online booking process.

Editing must be completed prior to interior formatting.

If you’re an experienced publisher with a good idea of what you want and you’re confident your manuscript is ready to go, then One Pass maybe the option for you. It includes same-day delivery and one post-formatting revision for adjustments that need to be made after reviewing your printed proof.

But what if you’re new to publishing or you know you’re going to keep finding typos?

Then Two Pass is the better option for you. It includes a quick turn-around with one post-formatting revision for last minute changes before ordering your printed proof and one post-formatting revision for after reviewing your printed proof.

Look over the sample styles and two formatting options below to decide which options best suit you then book online to get started.

If you have any questions or the date you need is not available on the calendar, feel free to contact me. I’m happy to accommodate requests when I can.
