Fast! Perfect! Beautiful! Maureen's interior design of my book was far beyond my expectations and much better than what I've seen from most New York publishing houses. It was a fairly complex job, with parts, large headings, and nearly three dozen pictures, and it was all done flawlessly. Also, the files were accepted by IngramSpark, CreateSpace, and KDP, etc., without any errors. Hassle free! Even if you know how to design interiors yourself, hiring Maureen will make your book better and your publishing experience faster.
I couldn’t be more pleased with Maureen and Go Published. I was in a bind when I couldn’t get a timely response from my previous formatting partner. I was on a tight deadline with an Amazon Pre-Order and was starting to get nervous. I did some internet research and came up with three new formatting company options. Go Published was my top choice. Fortunately, Maureen had the time and we contracted to work together! She added such flair to my page designs with hand-chosen artwork that matched the theme of my series. The finished products look absolutely wonderful, and she met my strict deadline with no problem. I can’t wait to work with her again.
If I had to describe Maureen Cutajar and her company Go Published in one word (very difficult for a writer) it would be professional. She was always courteous and helpful. Answered my numerous questions (which were a lot), thoroughly and in a timely manner. I never had to worry as to whether or not Maureen would respond back to my email queries because she always did. The end product exceeded my expectations and had little flourishes and design elements I would have never thought of. I literally cried the first time I saw it. I’m working on two more novels and will be using Maureen and Go Published again and without reservation! I truly can’t thank her enough.
Don't Eat Your Boogers (You'll Turn Green) is the third book I have worked on with Maureen. She is always professional and prompt with deadlines. If you have been looking for an expert, your journey stops here. She is amazing and I plan on working with her for many projects to come.
Maureen made life wonderfully easy, ensuring my book was published swiftly and with style. With her reassuring efficiency and professionalism, she saved me from all the potential stress and uncertainty that the world of self-publishing can hurl at new authors. Consumately conscientious and courteous, she has been a joy to work with. Far from being an intimidating ordeal, getting my book out into the world has been an enjoyable, empowering and inspiring process. You've worked hard writing your book, and deserve a break. So, save yourself a lot of time, effort and worry and let Maureen bring her finishing-touch magic to your manuscript. She is phenomenal!
Maureen's work for me has been truly exemplary. She has always been ready to work on my projects as scheduled, and gets the files back to me as promised. In addition, she has been willing to work with me when I want a particular font or decoration for chapter headings or scene breaks. I take a great deal of pride in the interior of my books looking just as good as the covers, and they do, thanks to Maureen's artistry. If you think readers don't notice, they do. From a Goodreads review of Year of the Monsoon: "By the way the e-book just looks great — nice cover, well done formatting, no errors."
I am very pleased with the work Maureen did formatting my ebook and print book. She graciously worked on my deadline and accommodated my needs. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for formatting. In addition, her fees are at a great rate. I look forward to working with her again on my next book.
Maureen is totally professional in every sense of the word. She is highly skilled and knowledgeable. I loved the formatting options she provided, which was a huge plus. Maureen replies to emails promptly and thoroughly, which certainly eases the mind of any author who may have changes or needs questions answered. Anyone lucky enough to have Maureen as their formatting provider, is lucky enough!
I found Maureen via the Smashwords list, and it was a lucky day for me. I purchased the “Bundle Offer,” which gave me files for Ingram (hardback & softcover), Createspace (softcover), Kindle (mobi), Smashwords, and an ePub file for everywhere else. It was a challenge keeping the steps straight and in sequence for all those formats, plus working with a cover designer, and Maureen was very helpful suggesting when to do what. The files came back looking beautiful, and the errors I found in the printed proof were not hers, they were ones I had missed in my original manuscript. For $30 she fixed 30+ “author errors”—a bargain. Now my book looks great at first glance and throughout. She’s been prompt, courteous, and knowledgeable in answering my questions and meeting timeframes. This was my second indie book (I formatted the other one myself, with much anguish), and using an expert like Maureen was by far the better way. I think I’d have produced something presentable eventually, but the time and tears weren’t worth it. My husband’s glad I found Maureen, too.
I feel very fortunate to have found Maureen Cutajar to format my latest books. She is very knowledgeable, professional, easy to work with, friendly, responsive and provides excellent value for money. Her work was exceptional, clean, and she added her own creative ideas to the process, which enhanced the interior layouts and overall design. Plus, she did it all in a fantastic turnaround time. I was thrilled with her work! Look no further - hiring Maureen will be one of the best decisions you can make for your book. She is highly recommended and will be my go-to formatter for my future releases.
At first I thought it would be easy to format my book for both electronic and print editions. After all, Amazon and others say they've made it easy with their online tools. Getting a book ready for publication is, in fact, a very complicated process. My pictures and text would look fine together on one device, but bad on another, and when I fixed one problem, another would arise somewhere else. That's why I turned to Maureen. I had hoped that she could get my book to work in all formats and that's exactly what she did. She also was easy to work with, delivered on time, and answered my many questions. I'm looking forward to working with her again.
