    I am a book/ebook typesetter. I have completed several books for Tilted Axis Press, and written/designed/self-published a book of mathematics problems. I can work from text files, Word, PDF, or other sources, and typeset in InDesign, Affinity Publisher, Hederis, Microsoft Publisher, and/or XML formats such as Markdown, HTML, LaTeX, and more. I will ensure both print and ebook formats are fully accessible (alt-text, fallbacks, proper formatting). I also have some experience coding SVGs from scratch and tweaking SVGs generated from software. I am detailed oriented to a granular level. I will address the tiniest details to ensure your project matches your vision. Given that, please bear in mind there may be small details we catch after a client gives final approval. I am always happy to make corrections, but we should negotiate what that entails after the initial project is complete. I will provide you with the source files, and I am happy to add extra time to show you how to make any small changes if you feel this would be helpful. Of course, you may prefer to have me (or anyone else) do those updates, so I will keep it as clear as possible for the next person. Ideally, our workflow is: - You provide me with all necessary source files, images, directions on how the publication is to be organized, and formatting instructions for images, diagrams, charts, etc. - You let me know what source format you would like the work to be typeset. - For print, you can provide me the exact printing guidelines, or direct me to the printer's guidelines, and I will format the source files accordingly. - For ebooks, please note that Amazon has now switched to EPUB3 format. I am able to convert EPUB3 books to the older MOBI format for legacy readers, but it is my understanding that even older readers can now read EPUB3 comfortably. - There are cases where special formatting (poetry or other specially formatted text) may not translate directly to ebooks. This is because most e-readers will override the default formatting we set for the ebook. There are no "pages" in an ebook, technically -- but, there are ways to replicate justifications, spacing, etc, in many cases. There is also the option of a "Fixed Layout" EPUB, but this is generally discouraged as it leads to accessibility problems. It is mostly used for Children's Books that require a very specific layout. - Once everything looks great and you approve, I will send you the output files and the source. Please feel free to contact me with your project and timelines, and feel free to ask any questions when I bid. Thanks!
