Through consultation we’ll determine the level of editorial support you would like, if any. We’ll discuss your book’s format – dimensions, imagery, color status, number of pages, style, cover options and other preferences you may have.
We’ll be in close contact during the style & design review stages of your book’s layout; within the accepted bid for services, we’ll include the number (and kind) of revisions afforded the author before extra fees are added.
If desired, Illustration services are available via black & white line drawings, as well as full-color illustrations in spot, half, and full-page versions. We’ll determine the number and style of illustrations and include that service in the final bid.
Project management is often included within the scope of the project. This involves uploading print files to the publication vendor, trouble-shooting the proof-to-print process and support in familiarizing yourself with your on-line bookshelf.
Once we’ve outlined the details, book projects are normally bid on a project basis. The bid fee can range from $600 – $5,000+ depending on the scope of the project. My fee for additional or consultancy services is $40 per hour.
