Book Formatting

Brass Rag Press offers a tiered pricing structure for book formatting based on page count. E-book and print are separate orders. When both are required, a $15.00 discount is automatically applied.

The cost includes scene separators and text specific chapter headings, title page etc. using fonts and graphics available in MS Word. At the client’s request, additional fonts and graphics may be arranged, and the cost added to the final bill. At this time, BRP accepts all non-fiction and non-illustrated fiction books for formatting.

All formatting orders require a deposit of $20.00 before work can begin. The remaining balance is due when the formatted copy is complete. 

1 – 25,000 words – $40.00

25,000 – 50,000 words – $45.00

50,000 – 80,000 words – $50.00

80,000 – 100,000 words – $55.00

Books over 100,000 words will be charged an additional $10 per 10,000 words, with no maximum fee.

Please note: We offer a 500-word overage allowance for all formatting. For instance, if a manuscript has 25,360 words, it falls under the $40.00 price point, whereas a manuscript of 25,501 words would fall under the $45.00 price point.

All work is scheduled on a first come, first served basis. A job is tentatively scheduled (penciled in) when the contract is signed and returned. We confirm your time when the deposit is paid. Therefore, it is important to complete the contracting process in a timely manner, so that scheduling may proceed smoothly. 

**Book formatting does not include editing of any kind. It is expected that the author will deliver a format ready copy of the manuscript.
