Who We Are

Marie Force, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author, Owner and Founder of the E-book Formatting Fairies
Marie started the business in 2012 in response to authors who came to her for formatting help. As one of the first successful self-published authors, Marie learned how to format using Legend Maker for e-book files for InDesign for CreateSpace print-on-demand files. She’s trained the Fairies on the ins and outs of formatting and how to successfully navigate uploading to the retailers. Although she’s no longer involved in the day-to-day operation of the Fairies, Marie still checks in to share knowledge and sprinkle a little fairy dust.

Julie Cupp, Chief Fairy
Julie is Marie’s full-time assistant and has been running the Formatting Fairies since January 2013. She is the main point of contact for all Fairies clients and coordinates projects and deadlines with the formatters, editors and designers. She’s your go-to person if you have questions about services and scheduling.
