Self-publishing and e-book publishing is easier and less expensive than ever. While you are trying to find an agent or publisher, or if you can’t find one, it is a way to get your book out quickly, especially if you want a book to increase your authority and credibility as a speaker or in your business.
It can also help you build the platform which mainstream publishers and agents look for these days, and you can always incorporate what you have self-published into a new book to get a publishing deal.
We can guide you through the process or set up this publishing for you, once you have your final manuscript in a Word or PDF document. We use the CreateSpace, Kindle, and Smashwords platforms. While publication on these platforms is free, it can be hard to know what to do. So we help you get your book published successfully. And if your manuscript needs editing, we can help with that, too.
Our basic costs are the following:
Consulting on what to do:
20 Minutes: $75
30 Minutes: $100
1 hour: $175
Publishing your book on CreateSpace: $350
(includes setting up your account, formatting your book from a final Word document, assisting you in creating a cover and back-cover copy, and setting up distribution and pricing):
Publishing your book on CreateSpace and Kindle: $400
Publishing your book on Kindle only: $150
Publishing your book on Smashwords: $150
