What is book formatting?
Book formatting, whether it be for ebooks or print books, is the layout of the text and how it appears on the reader or on the the printed page.
Readability is the most important factor, whether you intend to sell your book as an ebook or as a printed book. You want the layout to look professional.
Why must I format my book?
Each book aggregator or publisher has their own set of unique requirements for your book to be accepted onto their platform.
How long does it take to format a book?
It generally only takes a 3-4 days to format a book depending on the complexity of the book and what our current work load is. Novels format much quicker than technical manuals. Please inquire first and we will commit ourselves to a deadline.
Who do we format for?
We format for all the major book aggregator (publishers) platforms selling ebooks as well as print on demand books. See the list below.
Which source documents can we use to format from?
.doc | .docx | InDesign | Photoshop | PDF
Contact us and we will see what source documents you have and determine a price.
Into which formats can you convert my document?
.epub | .mobi | PDF | .doc | .docx
Will the source files be returned to me?
Yes we return all formatted source documents.
Do you offer any guarantees?
Yes we guarantee that your book will be accepted by the aggregators of your choice.
Am I allowed to make edits?
We will accommodate you with as many formatting edits as you require. (Please don’t send us an unedited manuscript to be formatted, and then expect us to continually make changes, each time you find a typo in your document. Replacing a paragraph or section of a chapter is not a minor change. It constitutes a new format. You will be charged accordingly.)
Do you use software as book formatters?
We do not use any formatting software. All the manuscripts are meticulously formatted by hand to make sure we give you the high quality product, you deserve.

*Prices are indicative only, and are based on the number of words in a simple novel. The actual quoted price will be determined by the number of images, tables, graphs, foot notes, end notes, etc. When extracting the source content from a PDF document, in some cases the contents might not extract correctly and will necessitate piecing it back together before any formatting can be done.
Triomarketers has been assisting authors for more than a decade, to effortlessly get their books online or printed. We have been on Mark’s List at Smashwords as a recommended book formatter for many years.
We know what a daunting task, this can be. Not everyone has the inclination or the time to learn the technical skills required to format an ebook to the exacting standards required. And to complicate matters even further, different aggregators require different formats.
We treat each manuscript as if it was our own, and take the time to format it to the exacting rules required for each platform that you intend to sell on. We format each book by hand. We do not use any automated formatting tools.
