I know, I know. I would love to be able to give you a number right here on the page. I also get disappointed when I look for online quotes, and they want me to fill out the form, and then they’ll get back to me, and so on and so forth. Frustrating, right?
But I assure you, I need to see the content to give you an accurate quote on your nonfiction eBook. Nonfiction titles cost more due to items such as special formatting, subsections, endnotes, and illustrations, which take extra time to format. Plan on $120 and up for a typical nonfiction book. But if yours has little to no endnotes or special formatting and no graphics, I may be able to reduce the cost.
Keep in mind nonfiction eBooks do not use sidebars or text boxes, so those will not translate from your print book to your eBook. In addition, indexes are not necessary for eBooks, so those will not be formatted.

You supply your manuscript or other content in Word, PDF, InDesign, or Open Office, and I will supply you with a PDF print-ready copy that can be uploaded to Amazon or other print-on-demand services such as Lulu. The total cost will depend on the complexity of your design (for example, books with pull quotes and sidebars take more time to design). Fill out the Get Started form, and let’s talk about your project.
