File formatting is both technical and artistic in nature, depending on the needs of the individual author. This service can help you with:
- Early ARC distribution
- Special story giveaways
- Direct download of your work
Artistic File Formatting
This feature is where you can include special things in your book to make it stand out. This can include but is not limited to:
- Special chapter headings
- Page graphics
- Special colored fonts
ALAREON can guide you through what these little features can do, and what they can cost you as an author due to how they increase the file sizes and could lead to additional download fees from your vendor, i.e. Amazon, B&N, etc.
Technical File Formatting
This feature is about making sure your book comes through the upload process and ends up with the desired appearance.
- Correct indentation
- Appropriate italics
- Page breaks
- Proper linkage in ToC and to other features like newsletters and FB groups
