Turning your finished manuscript into a published book can be a long and complicated journey for a first-time author.
If you want to see your book on sale but you’re not sure where to start, let me take the pain out of the publishing process with a complete package of services. I can tackle all the tasks necessary to get your writing ready for the bookshelf.
My complete publishing package includes:
- Cover design
- A unique ISBN number — choose between your own or one from Shilka Publishing
- Ebook formatting
- Print layout
- A sales description to attract potential readers
- Putting your book on sale on Amazon and other vendors
- PDF print proofs
The cover design and sales descriptions will be created especially for your book by experienced professionals who I have used many times for my own published titles.
Your print book will be available to buy on Amazon and other online vendors. Your ebook will be available on Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, Barnes & Noble Nook, Kobo, Scribd, Tolino, and 24Symbols. It will also be available to libraries through OverDrive, Bibliotheca, Baker & Taylor, and Hoopla. If you prefer, the ebook can be exclusive to Amazon, which has some advantages.
I charge £800/$1,050 for a manuscript of up to 50,000 words with up to five images or tables, £1,000/$1,300 for up to 100,000 words with up to ten images or tables. For longer manuscripts with up to twenty images or tables, I charge £1,500/$1,950. Any extra images or tables will be charged at £2/$2.50 for each additional image or table. In all cases, payment is in four parts. The book will be set up on the vendors under your name. You will have full control of your book at all times and will receive all the royalties that it earns.
Note that the above prices are for books with straightforward formatting requirements, such as most fiction and narrative non-fiction. If you have more complex requirements, email me for a quote.
