Digital formatting is the process of creating an HTML code that enables your manuscript to be utilized by different e-readers. In simple terms, its turning the .doc file into an e-reader file. However, it’s not as simple as hitting Save As on your computer. Making an e-book is a labor intensive process, and devices and programs are making updates every year, which change the way we format books. It’s like relearning the wheel every couple of years or so. Every digital format includes:
- In-line table of contents
- Scene break formatting
- Consistency checks
- Main text formatting
- Digital proof
- Device proof
- Chapter headings
- Title page
- Copyright page
- Call to action
Cost: $200 for one format, $75 per additional format
Example: one manuscript turned into an .epub and a .mobi file would cost $275
Turnaround: two weeks.

- Custom scene breaks: $25+
- Rush job–e-book finished in one week: $100+
Remember: e-readers are loaded with ways for users to customize their experience. That means that the font you think is really cool, might not actually be used. For this reason, we don’t recommend custom fonts for digital formatting.
The Quick Fox offers custom payment plans for every service we provide. You can break up the cost of formatting into smaller increments months ahead of time. We understand that publishing is a long term financial commitment, and are happy to work with you to make the cost of putting out your next book a little easier on your budget.
