frequently asked questions

how does this work?

  • You order your formatting job using the form below.
  • In 1-2 business days, you should receive an invoice, which must be paid in full before work begins.
  • Once the invoice is paid, you'll be contacted to email the manuscript which needs formatting.
  • We format the manuscript and email it back to you.
  • You submit it.
  • It passes - hurray!

(or if it doesn't, let us know immediately - we want you to be happy!)

what counts as my free revision?

Let's say right before you pay, you find a typo, or you realize you forgot to put something into the file. Or perhaps the file is rejected by the publisher due to typos or grammar errors. That would count as your free revision because it's not a formatting error but instead is your error.

what if I need further revisions?

If you should need further revision due to typos or grammatical errors, or revisions after you've paid, those would be charged at $5 per revision session. You'll need to submit the finished doc files I've returned to you, so please keep those safe.

important

  1. We don't do editing, proofreading, or any other changes to the manuscript itself.
  2. Once the formatting job is completed and you're satisfied with the results, your manuscript is deleted off our servers.
  3. If the file does not pass, please notify us at once with the error message - we'll fix it until it passes.
  4. If we can't get it to work as verified by it being unable to pass on our end, you get a full refund.
