fee structure*

If I take on a project, I will carry it through the processes of editing, design, and printing—from rough manuscript to well-edited book in hand. I do not currently offer piecemeal services. Below are my fees:

Editing

  • Anything but poetry: $0.06 per word

  • Poetry: $12 per page

Design

  • $40 per hour (estimated hours will be given prior to contract signing but will range anywhere from 10–30 hours)

Printing

  • Ranges widely depending on length, paper quality, color, size, etc. Roughly within the $4–$10 per book range but this price will be given to you prior to contract signing.

Examples

For a 50-page poetry book:

  • Editing: $600 (50 pages x $12 per page)

  • Design: $400 (estimated 10 hours @ $40 per hour)

  • Printing: $400 (100 copies @ $4 per book)

  • Total Project Cost: $1,400

For a 100-page, 25,000-word (roughly 250 words per page) novel:

  • Editing: $1,500 (25,000 words @ $0.06 per word)

  • Design: $560 (estimated 14 hours @ $40 per hour)

  • Printing: $300 (50 copies @ $6 per book)

  • Total Project Cost: $2,360
