So, what will it cost? Well, just as every book is different, so too is the cost.
As a general guideline, we could certainly publish, let’s say a standard formatted but fairly short novel, to a professional finish, whereby it is available in both printed and e-book formats, from somewhere around £1,350 – £1,400 (guideline only!)
But we really need to take into account all aspects of the book, i.e. the extent of proofreading or copy-editing required, the cover design and page layout requirements, the size and format, whether it’s in colour or mono, which is the favoured printing method, and so on.
So rather than offer a range of standard “packages”, we prefer to discuss and consider the particular requirements with the author, and then provide a specific proposal / estimate.
And at this point we do also remind you that there are no guarantees of necessarily recouping this cost!
