We love ’em. B10 Mediaworx provides e-book formatting services to small presses, indie authors, and self-publishing authors. Our goal is to make ebooks as pretty as they can possibly be within the constraints of the devices that will read them. We do fiction, but we specialize in nonfiction, particularly difficult-to-format nonfiction of all types. There are very few things we cannot format, but if we can’t, we’ll tell you.
Our turnaround time for new clients ranges from 5 business days to 4 weeks, depending on workload and complexity of the project.

Please use the contact form at right to request a quote (with attached document) or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We try to answer requests within 96 business hours. Please note: When we receive a file(s), we assume that it is in its final form and that we have all the materials we need to complete the assignment.
- Usable “clean” document extraction from a PDF ($25). The price goes up from there, especially if anything has to be retyped. For a document that is too “messy,” we will return it with a request that it be proofread or, if you desire we proofread it, we will send a quote for that service.
- Footnotes converted to endnotes and reciprocally linked ($25 for conversion + $1.00 per reciprocal link) Note: Indices will be removed. Every device has a search feature, which makes an index unnecessary.
- Images ($2.50 [extractable image] to $3.50 [screen-shot image] each)
- Rush service is available.
- For edits that are not formatting errors, and to insert additional materials: $150/hour.
Other author services we can provide based on vendor availability and/or scheduling:
- Content editing, copyediting, proofreading
- Print design for print-on-demand specific to Lightning Source and CreateSpace
