The communication back and forth was quick, helpful and friendly. I was new to this process and the staff was patient with me and guided me through it smoothly. Booknook is completely competent and professional and I would be happy to recommend them and in fact have already posted about the company on Facebook.

Booknook provided professional, on time, personalized service for my novel formatting "journey". They responded promptly to all of my queries and were lightning fast with fulfilling the changes I needed for the final manuscript draft. Zvonimir and Kimberly were practically available around the clock to answer questions and receive revisions. They patiently reviewed my requests and ensured that both my print PDF and epub/MOBIs were aligned. The interior layout of my novel is polished and visually engaging. Having used the now defunct Amazon Createspace platform (which proceeded at a glacial pace) for prior pubs, I was more than satisfied with Booknook. For authors who are stressed with looming deadlines, marketing/promotion quagmires, and the Amazon/KDP regime, Booknook is the way to go. I will happily utilize their services for future publications!

Even with my own extensive editorial experience of 30+ years, my book was no easy formatting project due to the bilingual aspect of the book - English and Japanese, including Japanese characters that required additional coding for proper formatting. BooknookBiz met that challenge with stellar attention and customer service and commitment to quality results!

BooknookBiz - and Kimberly Hitchens in particular - has my unequivocal recommendation for anyone who needs professional formatting and cover design.

This was my first foray into ebook publishing and as a newbie I had a lot of questions. Hitch and her crew patiently answered all my questions which made the whole process less stressful. In the end, everything went smoothly and the book was easily listed on Amazon. I plan on producing a new edition next year and I will be using Booknook.biz again!

Always amazing! We love working with Booknook and have many times. They are very thorough and thoughtful, helped me through many questions that I had about the process, and offered advice where I felt I was out of my depth. The final product turned out perfectly. There are a lot of moving parts but they made it easy.

Booknook.biz far exceeded my expectations when they formatted my book, “A Year Around the World.” Kimberly Hutchens, the owner walked me through the rigorous process step-by-step. Jayzel kept me updated, and Zvonimir (Vic) was the most wonderful formatter and layout artist any author could want. He did an exceptional job incorporating the 1000 photos and illustrations into the manuscript with graphics, colors and direction lines. Booknook.biz has and deserves top honors in the industry.

You guys are great. A Godsend to me. I had no clue how to format a book or even submit one for formatting. But you guys made that issue moot and got it done. Again simple awesome. Pricing is perfectly in line with the great work you do.

I found BookNook very helpful from the beginning of my desire to have my book reformatted. My book--Jolly Old Elf: the Art of Santa H. Claus--is full of pictures and my initial attempt to upload showed it to be problem-filled as well. Kimberly Hitchens, aka "Hitch", the boss, gave me solid advice from the beginning. She told me how to rebuild my pictures with better DPI, what to consider in terms of copyright, and pushed me to improve my book. Near the end, when I was having trouble uploading my Ebook to IngramSpark, Hitch volunteered to have her crew re-do the book and make it easier to upload. So often I have dealt with businesses who turn down customers but provide no helpful advice. BookNook, especially Hitch and her crew members Judith and Jayzel, were helpful with specifics. I would recommend BookNook to any and all! To put it in sports terms, BookNook is more like a teammate than a hurdle. Great company and very accessible.

Booknook really earned its 5-star rating. My nonfiction manuscript is long, at 655 pages ending with 1200-plus endnotes, and it had numerous formatting problems. Booknook had the expertise to sort it out. They spent meticulous, long hours linking up things which I, a mere mortal, had not known when I sent it in. All the while they presented a cheerful voice to me. Hats off to a marvelous job. I must add that my book has a couple of good endorsements, so it has some merit in the field, and so I am extra grateful that Booknook came highly recommended to me and proved true to that reputation.

For a first time self published author, the process of formatting and marketing is daunting. Booknook's team of professionals made the process clear, understandable, and achievable. I can recommend their services without hesitation. Friendly encounters, prompt responses and will use them again.

Not only were they prompt to reply and provide a great deal of information and assistance through the process they were fantastic to work with and patient with us as this was our first e-book. If you are looking for a great group of people to create your e-book and to have your expectations exceeded you have come to the right place. I highly recommend and intend to use them again in future for our next project.

After several months of witnessing how helpful “Hitch” was to authors on the KDP community forum, I hired her company, BookNook.biz, to format my next book which happened to be an educational appeal to kids on the environment. I had previously collaborated with a marine mammal zoologist and collected tons of high-resolution underwater photos of sea creatures and ocean life. Although I’d conceptualized what I thought the book would/should look like, Kimberly Hitchens (aka. “Hitch”) and her capable team of designers not only brought it to life but produced a product far beyond my expectations. They also created multiple versions of it to meet national and international standards for digital, paperback, and hardcover. Since its release, “Pogo the Porpoise with a Purpose” has received two national awards – Best Children’s Educational Book from the Independent Press and a finalist for Best Books on the Environment from National Indie Excellence Awards. Despite wanting to take credit for these honors, BookNook.biz played a huge role in Pogo’s award-worthiness. Hitch and her team are such a creative group, and I am thrilled to have partnered with them on this project. If you are lucky enough to work with these folks, trust them to do their thing. They’re very good at what they do and dedicated to their craft. Kudos, Hitch, and thanks again for everything!
P.S. Yay for “Pogo the Porpoise with a Purpose” 😊 Lorie Givens, Author

I am the author of eight books. So, I can assure you I know the level of effort that goes into writing one. When your baby is born, you don’t want to place it in the care of just anyone. That’s why I strongly recommend that you partner with Booknook.biz

This is the second time I partnered with Hitch’s organization. I think the world of them!!! They are knowledgeable, experienced, and a joy to work with.

I pride myself in finding top notch people/organizations and letting them do their magic. Once you hand your project over to Hitch’s team, you never have to worry. If they say they’ll do something, consider it done. It’s refreshing to find an organization that prides itself on the highest level of integrity and professionalism. I recommend Booknook.biz without reservation.

Phone Call Alert! 

(Please read, thanks.) 

Old Timey Switchboard Operator Cartoon

 

Due to the COVID-19 onslaught, we currently cannot take incoming phone calls.  

And since nobody reads anything, I've simply removed the phone number from the site.  

A notification about phone calls:  due to the COVID-19 plague, we've significantly increased our incoming inquiries--nearly double our usual volume--and the number of incoming inquiries by phone has been literally overwhelming.  Although most writers will say that their call "will only take 15 minutes," the truth is, that after 10 years of doing this, most author inquiry calls take an hour.  45 minutes at best. I'm currently receiving 7-10 calls/day, and due to that, I've had to stop accepting incoming phone calls, which my voicemail will tell you. You can leave a message--I can't call you back without one--and if a call is needed, I will of course call you.  But we have very complete and extensive email replies, handouts and our website is very informative. Almost all the questions that I receive during a call are actually already answered on our site, or are, in fact, publishing questions, not questions about our services, what we do, what we offer, or the like.  I already handle between 90-130 emails/day, as it is. I can't handle that many emails and take 7-10 hours of calls each day. I can't. So, in order to be able to answer this huge email volume, to help the greatest number of people, with my time, I've had to stop accepting calls.  I'm sorry, but that's just how it is. I'm in the process of setting up a call-appointment function, for free 15-minute calls to answer questions from new prospective customers and longer paid sessions for folks who generally want consulting on "publishing," generally (and for prospective kids' book publishers, as a special category of paid consulting).  But that functionality isn't yet set up. I hope to get that working the 3rd week of July, sometime.  

Thank you for your understanding.
