I need a new formatter
« on: May 16, 2020, 02:04:35 AM »
For five years, I got excellent formatting for a very reasonable price from a well-known formatting studio in Australia. Then last year it all went to hell. My emails always mysteriously got lost or sent to the spam folder, etc., only to be "discovered" days or weeks later. After a gap of many months, my recent emails to that studio have gone unanswered. I think that's a good indication they do not want my business anymore.

I have the names of some excellent formatters (I don't want to do the formatting myself), but I'd appreciate some additional nominations. 

Thanks!

I don't know what your frame of reference is for "reasonable price" but I have loved working with Tamara.

Perhaps I can help, I've been at it a pretty long time now--my websites linked in my signature. And here's a link to my Reedsy profile--not that we'd have to use it, just an easy way to show some reviews: https://reedsy.com/phillip-gessert

Colleen at Ampersand is also really good, though I would just about bet she's already on your shortlist. Very professional in all my dealings with her. https://www.ampersandbookinteriors.com

I've also heard good things about Bodie Dykstra. I haven't worked with him directly but he seems pretty knowledgeable from what I've seen. http://bdediting.com
