What is ebook formatting?
Ebook formatting is the preparation of a digital file, to ensure that it meets the publisher’s requirements and is an enjoyable reading experience.
Why do you need your ebook formatted?
Each publisher has specific requirements that need to be met to be accepted. Just uploading an unformatted Word file does not give good results.
Who do we format books for?
We format books for self-publishing authors and small publishers. Our formatted books are prepared to upload, without issue, to Smashwords, Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing, Kobo, Apple, Barnes & Noble, IngramSpark and more.
When can I expect my formatted file?
We have some of the fastest turnaround times in the business. Turnaround time within 7 days of payment (3 days for rush jobs).

Yes, that is no problem at all.
We recommend that you order the following files:
- Smashwords Word doc file
- Amazon mobi file
As Smashwords distributes to most of the major ebook retailers except Amazon, this will ensure that you are published at most of the major ebook retailers. If you wish to publish directly on Apple, B&N, Kobo, etc., we recommend the 2 epub files (1 with the cover, 1 without) option.
Yes, images are okay in ebooks. Just remember that images increase the size of the ebook file. Smashwords only allows 15 MB for each Word doc file uploaded. Also, Amazon charges a fee/MB to send your ebook via WhisperNet.
Any changes related to book formatting are free. We just ask that you review your whole book and send the changes as one list. For typos, please see our revision process.

Authors Love & Trust Us
“My books have very complicated formatting with over 100 illustrations each, external links, and numerous bulleted lists. None of the formatters I contacted would even take these on but John said “No problem!” He completed my original three e-books quickly, for a more than fair price, and they look great. I have no hesitation recommending Ebook Launch’s work to other e-book authors!”
“I cannot say enough good things about the team at Ebook Launch. As I am not totally computer savvy, they took the time to explain to me how everything works in ebook publishing. They have tremendous cover artists. Any ebook author would be wise to choose Ebook Launch for their formatting and cover needs.”
“I am the self-published author of four novels: both ebooks and paperback. I have used the formatting and cover design services of the amazing team at Ebook Launch for two of these titles. I’ve found all at Ebook Launch to be patient, incredibly helpful, super quick in delivering, but above all, very professional – and reasonably priced to boot! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ebook Launch for your next project; these are, without doubt, the go-to-guys for the self-published.”
“I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful work you did on my book. My book made the premium catalog at Smashwords. I wouldn’t have been able to do it without your help. I am working on a new book and would be honored if you will work on that book as well.”
“We WON! Not only for best Young Adult ebook cover design (gold medal thank you very much), but ALSO for overall top 50 (gold medal number two)! Two gold. I’m speechless. Apparently winning 2 gold is an anomaly. I always loved that word.”
For professional formatting, Ebook Launch is worth every penny. Prompt, knowledgeable, cheerful, superb quality, wonderful about revisions. No doubt in my mind that Ebook Launch cared about my project and went the extra mile to make sure I was satisfied. Highly recommended.
I wanted to thank you again for creating such beautiful covers, for your responsiveness to my questions and concerns, and for being so patient with me as I stumbled my way through this process. I appreciate it very much! I will definitely recommend you guys in the future (and I'll be back, too!)
Ebook Launch hit the ball out of the park with their designs for my oddball short story collections. I have been inundated with compliments on my covers from both readers and fellow authors alike. Some readers even gushed over them in their reviews. Now that's saying something!
Finding ebooklaunch by surfing the Internet was awesome!!! I used them to format my most recent book "Christian Caregiving: Practical Advice for a Happy Ending" and I am so glad I did. They are fast, efficient, and careful. I will use them again next time I am inspired to write another book. I will also be telling all my author friends about their great service. Five Star!
The team at Ebook Launch was highly recommended by a publishing website I trust, and I turned to them for helping me format my ebook. They have been wonderful to work with! The turnaround was unexpectedly fast and I got incredible value for my money. But more importantly, Adrian gave my book the same care I would as an author. He offered suggestions that improved its appearance and provided a beautiful, clean format. I also appreciated his patience and friendliness. If you want great service at a great price, Ebook Launch is the way to go.
