Terms for Formatting & Design Service

For work to begin on your manuscript preparation, the terms and conditions must be agreed upon. 

What Happens Next?

The following terms detail the process for submitting your manuscript and the payment schedule.


I agree that the book I am submitting contains messages of hope, encouragement, and faith from a Christian perspective and does not contain any graphic or profane language. 


You may pay the quoted price upfront in one payment, or you may pay a $100 deposit with the balance due upon completion of the project based on the actual number of pages of the completed book for submission to publisher.  


A $100 deposit is due upon submission of the manuscript for formatting. Once the project has begun, the deposit is non-refundable. However, if you change your mind before submitting the manuscript and have paid your deposit, it will be refunded.


All writing, editing, and proofreading must be done prior to submitting the manuscript for formatting. Any changes requested once work has begun on the formatting will incur additional charges of $10 per change. Once the book has been submitted to the publisher and changes are needed, there will be an additional $100 charge for deleting, changing and rescheduling the book for print.


Once the book interior and cover are designed and formatted for print, Manuscript Prep will proofread for any errors on our part and make corrections if any are needed. Then the book will be sent to you for reading and approval. At that point, you may send to your publisher.
