Some definitions for you

Book Formatting -

Layout and Formatting. Formatting refers to the way you enter paragraph and line breaks, indents, spaces, typefaces and punctuation marks. By observing a few basic text-formatting rules, transforming the pages of your manuscript into a final book that looks attractive and professional.

Bleed -

It is very difficult to print exactly to the edge of a sheet of paper/card, so to achieve this, it is necessary to print a slightly larger area than is needed and then trim the paper/card down to the required finished size. Images, background images and fills which are intended to extend to the edge of the page must be extended beyond the trim line to give a bleed.

Rebecca Ramm Engelbrecht

Greg Hetherington of Lakeview Times did an awesome job formatting my book cover and inside pages. He was able to put those finishing touches on that I couldnt figure out. He is affordable, works quickly, and does an excellent job. I was highly impressed and will be using him again on future projects.

Greg has worked his magic again! I had previously published a children's book with a company that went out of business. Therefore, I needed to republish the book. Greg fixed up the inside files and constructed a new cover, so I could republish. He did an awesome job!

 

Author Maureen Crofts

I would like to recommend Greg Hetherington for all the help he gave me in publishing my childrens picture book on Createspace My book is here .

He helped with the loading/bleeding the images and adding the text to the interior pages.

A very professional service.

 

Author Kimber Renee

This is to all who may want to write a book and get it published. I highly recommend that you give Greg a shot.

He has done both of my books Hells Hallways and Dead Traffic. You can see them at the end of my article in here and in his Book store.

I think all who see these covers can agree that he is creative and skilled at his craft. He collaborates with the customer and does his level best to give them the most awesome cover possible.

Everytime I look at my covers I am amazed. They pop on Amazon which is very important.

So if you are interested in getting a book out he is the man who can make it happen for you at a reasonable price. I am very happy with what he did with my books, and he will be my choice for future books I have. I would not consider anyone else that is how happy I am and you will be too.'

 

Author Dallas Ford Lincoln

For layout and design and formatting including the front and back covers I have had great success with Gregory Hetherington in this capacity.

 

Author Charlene laper

I highly recommend Greg Hetherington to aspiring authors as an excellent guide through the publishing process. I found him a patient and tireless consultant on cover design, format, etc., making himself willingly available through every step of the procedure. His goal is to assist his clients in achieving their expectations and his services are reasonable. See what she says about us.

He is creative and uses that creativity to create beautiful book covers and formatted interiors that are outstanding. He goes the extra mile in that He has an online bookstore where Greg, then helps to promote the books that He’s helped to publish.

 

A satisfied customer

Recently I asked Greg to proof, format and check the appearance of a document I had done in the rough. He successfully reduced my 3 pages to an attractive 2 page layout. I will certainly use Greg's service again as I produce a newsletter and a Christmas Greeting Card....

 

Leah Carroll

Extremely helpful from start to finish. Professional and nothing was too much trouble. Well priced and works very quickly to a high standard. I couldn't work out the issues but Greg was quick to find out and fix them. Thank you.....

 

Helina Bailey

My illustrator and I were struggling with formatting when I came to Greg. What took us two weeks (and we still weren't correct), Greg did in a few hours. Besides just resizing my illustrations so that they met the printing requirements, he also spruced up the Title and info pages, plus added a fun wish list to the blank page at the end of the book, giving it a more polished look. Self publishing my first book has been a struggle but having Greg format the book was a wonderful way to finish off the preproduction journey. I will definitely be using him again in the future!.....

 

Loredana McCarty

I'm thankful for Greg and his instant communication and availability to help publish the book. I appreciate his work......

 

Kealy Connor Lonning

**Thanks to Greg Hetherington for helping me make my dream of being an author, come true! My first book is published! ❤️Greg did an awesome job formatting, uploading, submitting--whatever he did--to make it happen! He answered so MANY questions that I had! Greg went above and beyond, I believe, when he created a photo page for me, typed the copyright page, added my dedication page, and helped me submit information on the Amazon site. He helped me with every step, gave me tips, suggestions, etc... **Greg was patient, calm, positive, efficient and fast, very knowledgeable, and worked tirelessly, to help get my book published! What I love about him, is he is always REACHABLE! He worked one night so late, as we messaged, trying to fix something on my book! Seriously, I don't know if the guy sleeps! He is so busy, but always says "yes," to what I need, and is always so nice about it! I was so lucky to find Greg, and I just hope with these amazing reviews, that he still has time to do another book for me! Thanks, Greg! ❤️ ......
