Newly established small press needs a formatter to work with on a regular basis that can get manuscripts ready for print and ebook publication. The books are of various lengths and various genres. You will create a print ready document (PDF or LaTex) according to CreateSpace (or whichever print company we choose) specifications, and it is your responsibility to know what these specifications are. It is important that you already have experience doing this. No newbies, please. I will also need a small res locked document to use to send out to reviewers. You must also create a document for Ebook specifications to upload on Smashwords. This includes blue hyperlinked TOC and any other links that might be in the book. Knowledge and experience formatting ebooks is an absolute must! Please do not apply if you have never done this before. There's more to formatting a book than simple file conversion. I will already have a cover for Smashwords designed by my artist. I will provide this cover to you so that you can use it to format the print cover. Knowledge and previous experience formatting covers for print is a must! This includes the spine and back cover. We prefer to agree on ONE PRICE for each book, no matter the length or genre of the book. This helps make bookkeeping and budgeting easier. We certainly understand that some that are longer or more complicated and will take longer to do, but most of our books are short and not complicated. It is our hope that in the long run the price evens out in your favor, so if you occasionally get one that is difficult, the easier ones will have made up for that. We prefer to find someone to work with on a regular basis, that is able to get this work done in a short time period (within a week of the word being assigned), and will do revisions for any mistakes as needed. Please note that you will not get an unedited document. The manuscript will be final when you receive it. Any revisions will be due to formatting issues not being correct, and not due to us needing to change editing errors. Native English speakers will get preference. I don't care if you use LaTex or Adobe, as long as the job gets done the way I need it to be. I WILL NOT RESPOND TO APPLICANTS WHO SEEM TO HAVE NOT READ THE JOB DESCRIPTION AT ALL. DO NOT SAY "I HAVE THE NECESSARY SKILLS TO DO THE JOB YOU REQUIRE." THIS TELLS ME YOU DIDN'T READ OR UNDERSTAND WHAT I NEED. TELL ME YOUR PRECISE UNDERSTANDING OF MY NEEDS, ASK QUESTIONS, AND TELL ME EXACTLY WHAT KIND OF WORK YOU DO AND WHAT PROGRAMS YOU USE. LET ME KNOW YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT I NEED DONE. Please note that the job requires you to provide me with a total of 4 documents. One print cover, one print ready interior, one ebook formatted interior, and a low res locked document that I can use for emailing out to book reviewers. The bid price is for one book, meaning all 4 of these documents need to be provided for the bid price. You do get credited for your work and will be mentioned in the book as well as on my website. Thank you.

We are a digital coaching business and present business coaching strategies via infographics. We shoot a talking head video and splice it into the infographic. We work in a templated environment. That is, our i/g's are similar in layout however the concept are completely different. Due to the sudden explosion of the business we need someone to take over the creation of our i/gs. There will be a steep learning curve and a close relationship with us. It is ongoing work and we are thinking that one product per week will keep our market happy. You will be paid per infographic so please, be real in your offer.
