Welcome to Ebook Assist


Hello, I’m Maggie. Welcome to Ebook Assist!

Ebook Assist provides formatting services to help independent authors publish ebooks with minimum hassle and maximum enjoyment.

If you’re mystified by technology-talk (like me), self-publishing can seem complicated, but it doesn’t have to be.

I know this because I’m a writer too, and I’ve recently discovered that, with the help of great websites like Smashwords and Kindle Direct Publishing (Amazon), you can have the thrill of seeing your words come to life as an ebook and be available for distribution through retailers like Amazon, Smashwords, Apple iBooks, Barnes & Noble, and more.

All you need is two things:

* A Word document that is formatted to Smashwords or Kindle Direct Publishing requirements.

* An image for the ebook cover that has the right specifications. (If you do a Google search for ‘ebook covers’, you’ll find lots of cover designers.)

How Ebook Assist can help you

It’s the first bit I can help you with. Ebook Assist will format your Word document to ensure it will  upload with no problems and turn into a great-looking ebook. You could do the formatting yourself, but unless you’re familiar with using styles in Microsoft Word and are willing to learn and follow the ebook formatting ‘rules’, it can be tricky.

That’s where I can help! With nine years’ experience as an editor, I work with Microsoft Word all the time and I actually like fiddly formatting jobs. (Weird, I know!)

Ebook Assist’s prices for ebook formatting start at AU$40 / US$35. See the Ebook formatting page for details, and the How to Order page for a step-by-step explanation of how the process works. (It’s really straightforward, I promise.)

If you need your manuscript copy edited or proofread, I can do that too. See the Editing and Proofreading page for more information.

Ebook Assist provides personal service and speedy turnaround to help you achieve your e-publishing goals. Contact me today, and let’s get started!
