I am a professional book formatter/designer who enjoys working with clients from all over the world on their self-publishing journey. I format books for print and digital markets in a wide range of genres and have a passion for working with indie authors from all walks of life.

My love for books has been present throughout my life, and being able to work with authors to bring their books one step closer to publication makes my heart sing.

I have worked across a wide range of genres, and especially enjoy genre fiction, such as Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Horror, Romance, Thrillers, and sub-genres, such as YA, Urban, Paranormal, Dystopian, and Post Apocalyptic. I'm easy going, can work to tight deadlines, and have a good sense of humour. There is nothing I like more than seeing a client's work move out in the world and enrich it.

A few client testimonials:
Being that this is my first time self-publishing, I wasn't sure how the formatting procedure would go. Lorna was excellent in informing me of how this process was going to go and she exceeded my expectations when it came down to professionalism and meeting deadlines. I plan on collaborating with her again in the future.

Lorna was fabulous to work with. She made changes without complaint and was patient when I ran a little behind schedule (waiting for the cover design from another designer.) Her work is picture perfect and I'm so happy to have found her.

I loved working with Lorna and look forward to the next time. She does fantastic work and is a great communicator. Highly recommend!
--Trisha LaVan, Nov 16, 2020
I approached Lorna as a complete amateur and she was extremely patient and answered far too many questions! The formatting in 3 different formats was just as I hoped and more. I would not hesitate in recommending Lorna
