A more complex conversion of your manuscript involving text wrapping of images, inclusion of hyperlinks to audio and video files and other specialist requests will cost £50

And Now Some Author Solutions Companies
The Choice is Yours
If you’ve had the chance to browse the sites of the author solutions companies you’ll see they’ll take the worry and stress out of publishing your book, but they’ll also take your money too. So the choice is yours. As you can see the services you get here cost as little as £25. By comparison, an author solutions company can charge you around £900 to typeset, edit and print just 100 copies of a children’s book, which really isn’t economical if you want to make money from your writing.
The Benefits of Low Budget
On this site, you can get a book formatted and up on Amazon for as little as £75. But remember you get what you pay for. I don’t offer you a proofreading service. I do most of the mundane tasks and help with some of the writing to get a book up on Amazon. But I’m not a typesetter, proofreader or copy editor. Those folk will charge you much more money and rightly so. The work they produce will spare your blushes and is worth every penny if you want the highest standard humanly possible.
By the way, if you need a proofreading service. I recommend the following:
Vic Watson is a reasonably priced proofreader. I know from experience that she can proofread a 94,000 word manuscript in 12 weeks. She gives your manuscript a good shake to see what comes loose and it only costs a few hundred pounds so contact her for a thorough shakedown of your manuscript.
I hope to hear from you soon. In the meantime, happy writing.
