Stepping into the world of independent publishing can be a daunting endeavor for those who are not the most technology minded or computer savvy. If you’ve written a book but don’t know how to go from finished manuscript to published author with a novel in your hands, have no fear. We offer a full array of services to help get your publishing business off to a running start. Below, you will find a full list of our services, available a la carte or as an all-in-one package. Our goal is to meet your needs in a timely and affordable fashion.
Our publishing services are available a la carte so you can choose what you need, when you need it, or in a variety of packages so you can order everything you need at one time.
This service provides proofreading for 1 manuscript up to 50,000 words long. Proofreading is the last step before publishing, and is intended to catch typos and commonly misused words.
Proofreading is not to be confused with line editing or copyediting. Starting price is $125, please contact us for a personal quote if your work is longer than 50,000 words.
The cover of your book is, hands down, one of the most important aspects that helps make or break the success of a novel. When it comes to cover art, the adage ‘you get what you pay for’ holds true. Cheap covers usually cut corners, whether that means using stolen images or just putting it together badly. But beautiful cover art doesn’t haveto cost a fortune, either. Our custom covers start at just $100.
Covers aren’t the only thing we design. We can also design a wide range of supplemental marketing materials, from Facebook headers to sales banners, promo teasers, 3D mockups, and author logos. If it’s a design project, we can do it. Our most popular starter package includes 2 regular teaser graphics and 1 3D mockup (showing how your book looks on a tablet / phone / in paperback) for just $35.
When a reader opens your book, the internal formatting is important. You want the inside of your book to look just as beautiful and polished as the cover. But proper formatting can also be prohibitively expensive and time-consuming. It doesn’t have to be that way!
Our standard formatting package starts at just $70 for eBook and paperback formatting of 1 manuscript.
Sometimes you hit a brick wall before your project is finished. You need help, but it’s not really time for a developmental edit and you’re a long way from the proofreading stage. What you need is a brainstorming partner to bounce ideas off of, preferably someone who’s in the business and has a good sense for what sells.
Look no further: we offer brainstorming assistance and plot doctoring starting at just $35 / hour.
Your book is done, hurrah! So what’s all this fuss about a target audience and how do you identify yours? If you’re clueless about keywords or uncertain if you’ve written sci-fi or fantasy, romance or women’s fiction, don’t worry. As consummate bibliophiles and industry professionals, we know all about finding your target audience and selecting the right keywords for your book. We offer market research packages or guided training starting at $35 / hour.
KDP, KU, staying exclusive to Amazon or publishing wide, Kobo, Nook, Google Play—go direct or use a distributor, and what the heck is expanded distribution? If you’re new to the world of independent publishing, all of these terms and retailers can be a lot of grapple with, especially if you aren’t the most technologically inclined.
Don’t worry, we’re familiar with this wonderful world. We offer guided consultation and training to get you started on the right foot—or, if you’d rather just stick to writing and prefer to have the rest of the experience be as hands off as possible, we can even set up your publishing accounts and get your work to the market so all you have to do is check your sales and collect your royalties.
If you’re overwhelmed or don’t know where to start, contact us today. We’ll establish what your needs are and give you a personalized quote.
These packages combine services that are complimentary to each other or frequently ordered together. You can order just one service package or multiple packages based on what best suits your current needs.
