What is eBook formatting?

eBook Formatting

eBook formatting is a standard design process that turns your eBook’s text and images into an attractive layout for readers to enjoy. It’s similar to printed book interior design and formatting, but focuses solely on your book in the digital space. Standard formatting for eBooks (ePub and .mobi) feature a dynamic, re-flowable layout for text and images to make sure your eBook looks great when viewed on every size and shape eReader, mobile device and tablet.

BookBaby’s expert designers will help you deliver the best possible reading experience with a custom format complete with an inviting page hierarchy and clear typeface designed to keep your readers engaged.

How it works

Professional formatting is an essential part of any eBook design. A clear hierarchy and readable typeface helps create a layout that is inviting to your reader. After you've selected your design options and saved your quote, you’ll be asked to complete a short design questionnaire. It will give you the opportunity to share your ideas about the mood of your eBook or the style of your pages.

Every section you include in your manuscript (foreword, dedication, chapters, etc.) will be custom formatted to create a polished eBook layout. You will also have an opportunity to upload images of your own for us to work with. Our designers will combine your input with their years of expertise to create a custom-designed book that readers will dive into. We will then send you an EPUB proof of your eBook for your approval.

IMPORTANT: Interior eBook design and formatting does not include editorial services and is strictly a design service. BookBaby does offer stand alone editing services. You should upload your fully-edited and final text. Non-design related text edits after uploading will incur additional cost.
