Designing a novel is much different from designing a non-fiction book with numerous illustrations. Consequently, the fees listed here are just a guideline, and we’ll have to look over your unique project before giving you a final estimate.
For a standard paperback or hardback novel, printed in black and white, we charge a base fee of $150, and $0.015 per word.
Cover design is included at no extra cost, and includes three design ideas to choose from…
For example – a 60,000 word novel would cost $1050 for a completed book, with a proof copy of your book and a book website included!
(60,000 x $0.015) + $150 [ base fee ] = $1050
Half of the fee is required to begin the process, and the second half is required when the book design is complete, before publishing final book. We accept checks and all major credit cards through Paypal.
