Add-Ons

Additional Services to Make Your Book the Best It Can Be

Fiction/Nonfiction Editing: $200/10k words

If your book hasn’t been edited, it needs to be. It increases the cost to publish your book, but it’s worth it. Professional editing makes your book better. Through our editing process, we pull out all the tricks to make your story flow, so readers remain engaged. Not sure if professional editing is worth the fee? Email us 1,000 words of your book and we’ll show what our editing can do for your story—for free.

Children's Book Editing: $250

Most picture books have 1,000 words or fewer. That means every word counts. With this add-on, our professional editors edit your entire manuscript five or more times to make sure every word is just right. Wonder what professional editing could do for your story? Email us your manuscript for a free sample.

Illustrations: $250+

Need an illustrator for your book? We’ve got you covered, and we’ll do it within your budget. Children’s picture book illustrations are $400. Want some custom black-and-grey illustrations to sprinkle throughout your picture book or middle grade novel? That costs $250. Prices depends on your budget and amount and style of art desired.

Copyright: $110

Your book is copyrighted the moment you write it. For that reason, many authors never file for an official copyright with the US Copyright Office. For those who do, we’ve created an easy-to-follow video that shows how. Rather have us do it? No problem!
