Rik is the only formatter I use, and I strongly recommend him to anyone looking to publish a book. His e-book and hardcopy formats are flawless, and his creativity and ingenuity work together to make each book unique and custom-tailored to the author and story at-hand. His system for making corrections and edits post-formatting is simple and quick, ensuring no book goes out his door with errors or anything less than flawless content. And his prices can’t be beat.
Rik’s a professional, and that’s what professional writers should be looking for. Use him if you want a professional product.

I love the name of Rik Hall’s business—Wild Seas—particularly because that’s what I felt I was experiencing as a debut author.

Seeing my book formed and birthed under the tutelage of experts in their field, such as Rik, produced feelings of exhilaration, wild optimism, and yes, at times nail-biting fear and just a bit of sea-sickness.

From the first time we digitally met, I felt comfortable with his level of expert precision and knowledge of formatting; and his years of experience put me at ease. I knew I and my book were in good hands.

The end result, a professionally formatted print and eBook, confirmed my suspicion that I will be calling on him for my future formatting needs.

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Rik Hall and Wild Seas Formatting to any author, whether seasoned or debut.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Rik for all of my e-books, and I can’t say enough great things about him. I recommend him to all serious authors. His work is clean, mistake-free and speedy. He’s a consummate professional. And a pleasure to work with because he’s an awfully nice guy!
