Below is some of the feedback I’ve received for my Microsoft Word Book Formatting services (Note: I don’t format books in Framemaker or InDesign anymore):

My Microsoft Word Book Formatting Services Form

The prices do vary, but the below are general guidelines of what you need to think about.


If there’s any doubt, or you’re quite simply unsure of what you want, just Contact me; we can then schedule an informal chat and I can advise on what I think would be the best way to go.

My Credit in Your Book

Word-of-mouth is how I get most of my business, so you allow me the right to include my name as your book formatter (complete with email address/link in an ebook, and email address if a print book) in your book. This is already covered in the above fees; however, should you wish for my credit to be removed, then be advised that a $150 non-credit fee will be required (it’s built into the form above).

Procedure After I Receive Your Quote

After you’ve sent your request to me, I will contact you if I have any questions and, once all is agreed, can confirm payment amount. You can then Paypal me the amount and I will then start work as agreed.


  • I have to agree with one of the testimonials on his profile that says, “Makes me reconsider what 5 stars means for everyone else I’ve worked with.”

    I’ve worked with many consultants in my career (both on Upwork and in real life.)

    I’ve found that good consultants provide you with the requested deliverable on time and on budget while keeping you informed on progress. Great consultants on the other hand also do this, but teach you something in the process.

    I actually learned something from Russ in his initial proposal, before I even awarded him the contract. He showed me some problems in the document I provided for quote purposes, that I was not even aware of, which would have plagued me down the road. This also answered some long-standing questions I’ve had about Word in mind that I could never quite find the answer to.

    Working with Russ answers once and for all,what’s the difference between working with a professional/specialist vs an amateur/generalist?

    As a result of working with him, I have a new way of working with Word. I also now have an asset – a properly structured, beautiful, REUSABLE Word template – in addition to my initial request.

    And if that’s not enough, he provided videos explaining his work and findings that I can refer back to as needed.

    By using Russ for this project, I feel as if I’ve made an investment in my project rather than simply conduct a business transaction.

    I cannot recommend this man highly enough.

    I have used multiple book formatters in the past, but none of them came even close to the expertise and skill of Russ. I am 110% certain I will be hiring him again in the future. I know when I give Russ a job, it will be done correctly without my having to double check everything. I was also blown away by his shooting videos to explain some things to me. He deserves stars well beyond 5!

    Russ over and above exceeded my expectations. His level of professionalism and communication was second to none. Not to forget he was super efficient on turn around as well. Couldn’t recommend him highly enough!

    Russ was excellent to work with. He not only completed the job in a timely fashion, but he went over and beyond by providing detailed explanations of how he did the job. He reached out to communicate via skype to ensure my comfort with the end deliverable. He is definitely work considering for your next project..”

    “Russ Crowley is a true professional. I had to have a complex manuscript formatted in Microsoft Word for an academic press, and Russ delivered a perfect final product right on schedule. Along the way he was patient, understanding, courteous, and extremely resourceful in getting problems solved. I am 100% satisfied with his work, and I would gladly hire him again. He was great.

    “This was my first book, and I needed it to be formatted for print and Kindle version, etc. Since it was my first I had a lot of questions about the formatting and also how to release it. Russ was very knowledgeable and able to answer my questions and was happy to accommodate me in that. His work was timely and excellent and small changes I required were responded to quickly. Overall I am very pleased having worked with him and would definitely do so again.”
