Welcome to the Formatting Fairies! Wave a Wand and It Is Done!


You do the writing, we'll do the work to get your books ready for e-book and print distribution!

E-pub/Mobi File Creation
E-pub is the industry standard format preferred by most retailers, except for Amazon, which prefers Mobi files. We can prepare both types of files for you, with or without customization. Without customization will give you an E-pub file you can use at Barnes & Noble, Kobo and Apple. Customization will give you that same file with live links to your other books on each platform, which makes it easier for readers to buy your other books direct from their devices.

Generic E-pub and Mobi output: $50 per book

Customized E-pub and Mobi output: $50 per book, plus:
                  ____Customize for Amazon: $10
                  ____Customize for Barnes & Noble: $10
                  ____Customize for Apple: $10
                  ____Customize for Kobo: $10

**Customization is only necessary when you have other books for sale on the various platforms so you can link directly from the file to your other books on each platform.

Cover Design
Our team of world-class graphic designers stands ready to help you find the perfect cover for your book. Appealing to online audiences requires that a cover "pop" on the screen, and our designers know just how to make that happen. Our fee structure depends on the amount of research and consultation required. If an author comes to us and says, "I want exactly this," he or she will be looking at the lower end of the scale. If an author has no idea what he or she wants, the charge will be higher. Contact marie@marieforce.com to determine the price in advance.

Cover Design: $200 to $300 plus expenses (image costs, etc.) 

Upload to Apple (Apple computer required): $50

PayPal Service Fee: 10 percent of total cost
