So buyer ordered book formatting gig.
This was instruction from him.
“I need the attached Word doc formatted for a CreateSpace 6x9 paperback. Please let me know if you need any additional information.”
I said thanks for ordering and asked him about font he prefer for books.
He said “Any font is fine.”
So I did formatting like any other formatting where people are happy with.
I delivered pretty quickly, even that isn’t important…
Next day, he asked for modification.
"I would like to make the book longer. Below are some suggestions:
- Make all fonts 1 point larger
- Insert a few blank links before each new chapter
- Split the copyright and legal disclaimer (Page 2) into separate pages
- Make the margins a little larger
- Add “book title (this was actually his book title)” to the header of even pages with content/text.
- Please also add a dedication page before the table of contents page (text attached)."
So that are completely new instructions. Ok, fine, I did it.
I read it wrong at first something, but fixed it later again.
So everything was perfect except book headers. I suggested him about that it will not look good with so many titles in it. And he said “I don’t see any chapter headers?”
That is new requirements again. So I showed him how it looks to have header and title on same page.
“You are not following my instructions. Please issue me a refund and I will use someone else.”
I followed every instruction and you will not get free job
You absolutely DID NOT follow my instructions and I will not be using your work. I had to order a formatting gig from someone else. Attached is their first draft. As you can see, they followed my instructions. Please refund me.
I mean, WHAT THE HELL is with buyers. Asking multiple new stuff, and when book is over, that I refund him.
I am really struggling to say to him something that I shouldn’t… ARGHHHHH
