BOOK PUBLISHING and SELF PUBLISHING

So . . . You want to publish a book?

Here are some things you need to know and decisions you need to make:

How are you going to publish it

  • Print on Demand, 95% of all the books I work on are printed by POD.
  • Traditional printing, you are going to need a garage to store all the books and set up a fulfillment process or hire a fulfillment company to do it for you.
  • Copy printer; cost a lot per copy but if you only want a half dozen copies, this is the way to go
  • eBook? Free except for my labor.

Are you going to self-publish, or have Bookwarrem publish it?

Depending on the size, page count, and revisions, I should be able to format your book for either a traditional printer or print on demand for between $200 to $500 depending on complexity..

My rate is $45/hour plus $50 if you want to use my barcode and publishing company. I don't mark up the printing or other outside expenses.

This would include:

  • Initial consultation
  • Formatting your text into a book format
  • Designing a cover to include photographs or graphics
  • Helping you get your own ISBN and barcode
  • Helping you set up your own publishing company
  • Sending you a draft copy for final proofreading
  • Send your files to what ever printer you want or to Lightning Source Inc, a Print On Demand printer (division of Ingram)
  • Listing your book with Amazon and Ingram Books catalog making it available to all bookstore nation wide
  • Format your book into an eBook, convert it to nine different eBook formats and placing it in eBook stores including Kindle, Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, Apple, etc.

References can be furnish upon request

If you want to have it printed using Print on Demand technology, it should not cost you more than $110 in addition to my labor charge to have your book setup, including a proof copy. After that, you can buy copies of your book shipped directly from the printer for the cost of printing and shipping.
