About The Service

This is a service for formatting books and novels, ready for self-publishing in print, as a paperback book, and / or as a Kindle eBook. We can undertake this service for any type of book, be it fiction or non-fiction.

We can format your manuscript into a print-ready PDF or Microsoft Word document, ready to publish on CreateSpace, Amazon and other self-publishing platforms. We can also upload your book and set it up for you through print-on-demand services, helping you make it ready for sale on Amazon, or just so you can purchase copies for yourself.

Formatting an eBook can be complicated, as you have to enable a clickable table of contents and a layout compatible with eReaders. We can undertake that work for you, so you know that your book will be professionally presented when it is published.

If you want to do all the work yourself, you might be interested in my step by step self-publishing guide.

For more details, please see the FAQ section of the page.

How to Pay and Submit

In first instance, please contact Chris by email at chris@christopherfielden.com. Please provide details about your project and the work you'd like us to undertake for you.

Chris will reply to your email within 3 days, to let you know he's received your message safely. If for any reason you do not hear from him within 3 days, please get in touch.

On occasion, Chris travels with work and takes holidays / vacations where he has no internet access. This is rare, but in these instances he sets up an 'out of office' reply on his email, letting you know if there will be a delay in his response.

Once we have discussed your project and have all the information we need, you can pay via PayPal or bank transfer.

You do not have to have a PayPal account to use PayPal, and can pay by credit card, debit card or even direct debit. We use PayPal because it is secure, safe and protects your personal information, ensuring a safe transaction. You can read more about PayPal in the FAQ.

Once you have paid, email your manuscript as a Microsoft Word document (as a .doc .docx or .rtf file) to chris@christopherfielden.com.

If you can't supply a document in the required file format, please email me - we can usually find a way around it.

Manuscript Formatting Services FAQ

Here are some frequently asked questions.

Do you share my personal information with anyone else?

No. Never.

We won't give any of your personal information or writing to anyone. We treat all you send us in complete confidence. We respect your privacy at all times.

If you want, Chris can add your email to his database. He sends newsletter emails out, on average, once every 2 weeks. If you do not want to be added to the mailing list, simply let him know when you submit your story. If you do decide to receive newsletters and change your mind later, there is an easy unsubscribe option in every email sent out, so you can remove yourself immediately.

If you want any further information, please review our privacy policy.

How long will it take to receive my book?

We aim to complete your book within 6 weeks (42 days).

Often, the turnaround time will be quicker than this. We will try and give you a more accurate idea of timings when discussing your project by email.

Please can you give me some more details on what I can expect from this service?

Yes! You will receive a professionally formatted manuscript, ready to publish in your desired formats (paperback book and / or Kindle eBook).

We will discuss options with you as we go through the process. This can include:

  • Book size
  • Book cover
  • Colour options
  • Interior presentation
  • Images
  • Paper
  • Pricing
  • Much more

What we discuss depends on the requirements of your project.

What don’t you do?

We do not proofread your book or make edits. We simply prepare your manuscript for publication.

If you want your book copy edited, please review our copy editing service page.

If you want a critique, please review our critique service page.

Why do you use PayPal to receive payments?

PayPal is a world leading payment service provider. They offer a secure service, ensuring that monetary transactions are quick, easy and safe. You can set up an account and pay via your bank in any currency, or you can simply pay by debit or credit card without setting up an account. Whichever payment method you prefer, you can be confident that your personal information is safe.

Setting up secure payments within this website would be very costly and is not something we're currently able to do. PayPal are trusted and widely used, most famously being eBay’s preferred payment service provider. For more details, check out the PayPal website.
