The General Format is for text-only manuscripts. The manuscript can be set to whatever size
the client requires with margins and gutters set at the correct dimensions for printing in that size. Sizes offered include
but are not limited to 6x9, 5.5x8.5, A5, 8.5x11, pocket book etc. The service includes spacing of text appropriate for the
style of the manuscript, paragraph indenting, chapter breaks, page numbering, and page headers in any style requested. A title
page and a copyright page will also be inserted if requested, along with any other preliminary pages the client may require.
During the formatting process, we will remove any incorrect formatting such as unnecessary carriage breaks, manual double
spacing, badly formatted tabs, and unnecessarily hyphenated words caused by new lines. The service will take approximately
one week, and includes up to three revisions. It also includes a font-embedded, print-ready PDF.
