What can Kat Attack Publishing Services do for you?
eBook formatting is oftentimes painful to navigate. Professional print design is necessary for any author self-published or not. For that reason, Kat Attack Publishing Services offers both paperback and eBook formatting services at an affordable rate.
Paperbacks start at $200 | eBooks at $50
Kat Attack Publishing Services can format books in nearly any format, though they do not specialize in photo-intensive projects. Services are offered on a first-come, first-serve basis, and are provided in a leisurely manner specific to the product. Rates will scale depending on the complexity of the project. If further changes are required after the quality-assurance guarantee threshold (i.e., the amount of time it takes for Createspace to approve your paperback for distribution or for Smashwords to approve for premium distribution to their outlets,) or you feel your work must be returned to you upon a specific date, stress fees will apply. (Fees vary depending on amount of work required or the speed at which the project must be returned.)
The following are examples of paperwork formatting from a variety of clients. You may navigate samples by clicking the arrows in the flash documents below. (Requires Adobe Flash.)
Amorous Things | Single-Author Collection | Kody Boye

eBook files are provided for Kindle, Nook Press, Draft2Digital, Smashwords and Google Play in word (.doc) files for meatgrinder conversion.
If you would like to contact Kat Attack Publishing Services about possibly working on a project, please use the form listed on this site and include as much information about your book as possible (what it is about, what genre it falls under, what your aim is with its general style and aesthetic.) Be specific about what you want, including preferred font choices if applicable. The more information that is provided, the easier it will be to deliver a project you can be proud of. Authors who have not worked with an interior formatter should consult Kat Attack's What To Include in a Paperback Formatting Proposal Guide, which can be found by clicking here.

Kat Attack specializes in working with books that fall under the speculative genre range (i.e., horror, fantasy, science-fiction,) but can work on virtually any project. When working with you on copyedits, they will strive to ensure that your project reads smoothly and is free of typos. If you wish to commission them for a stronger content edit, they will work to ensure that your manuscript is structurally sound and will offer feedback on sentence structure, plot, character development and continuity.
Manuscripts are asked to be formatted with Times New Roman, size 12 font, 1.5-spaced lines, and 1" margins all around.
If you would like to contact Kat Attack Publishing Services about possibly working on a project, please use the form listed on this site. Upon query, they will offer up to 5 pages for your consideration free of charge.
All work commissioned through Kat Attack Publishing Services is subject to a lifetime warranty. Should you discover a problem within your work that is the result of the service provider's error, or that causes it to be rejected by a distribution outlet, it will be corrected without charge. Additional changes requested by the author (ex: added content or additional edits) will result in applicable stress fees.
50% of your commission's cost will be charged prior to beginning the service. Once your project is complete, a watermarked version of your copyedited or formatted manuscript will be sent to you for review. Once final adjustments are made, you will be charged the other 50%. You will receive your project once payment has been received in full. Please note that anything paid beyond the amount listed in the rendered invoice will be considered 'gratuity' and will not count toward future services.
