Are you struggling with KDP? Today I was working with a customer file because KDP interface decided to poo poo my work many, many times in a row. How frustrating! I use InDesign and not Word for the PDF formatting files that KDP wants for print purposes (at least for the layout of the manuscripts, use Gimp – Photoshop based open source program for covers). If one little thing is slightly, nano minuscule off…whoa boy, watch out, you spend the day cursing and going coo coo.
Can’t figure it out? Well then, let me introduce to you the KDP Proofing services that Black Cat Editing will be providing (also available to the TLS portal customers). For a nominal fee we will take your manuscript file and proof, layout and do the formatting for you.
If you choose not to part ways and decide that it’s worth the cold hard cash (or in this case, interac email) to have me look at your files and fix it for you then the next step would be to send me the original manuscript files to layout, package and export to PDF for you. Need a cover too? Well, I can do that – Check out my portfolio for covers.
These services do include a file for Ebook, the PDF for print which includes the descriptions, SEO and meta data for both – you just provide the information for the description and the genre and a small mini synopsis of your manuscript.
