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.

Lorna was amazing to work with during the formatting process of my novel. She was very patient with any questions I had and helped to educate this first time author. Not to mention she is very talented and produces beautiful finished products! I would highly recommend Lorna to anyone.

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 is professional, courteous and works efficiently, delivering her work on time. This is the second book that she has worked on for me and I have no hesitation in highly recommending her.
