Self-Publishing Costs

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 £1,400 – £1,700 (guideline only!).

Other relatively short books, such as a poetry collection or a children’s book, might be similar. Whereas a more extensive work, perhaps with illustrations and greater layout & formatting demands, would be proportionately more.

Services to Consider

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.

We are very ‘hands-on’ in the way we work, giving our authors plenty of opportunity for input throughout the process.

So we’ll be happy to consider the particular requirements for your book, and then provide a more specific proposal/estimate accordingly.

Specific Quotations

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.

Although at this point we do also remind you that there are no absolute guarantees of necessarily recouping all the cost!
