Self-Publishing Packages

My professional self-publishing packages are designed to take your book from draft to publication via a series of structured steps. Whether you opt for an Ultimate or Standard package, one-to-one support will be provided throughout the process. My aim is to make publishing your book a stress-free, creative and fun experience.

Notes

Extra charges may apply if the images supplied by you do not meet minimum printing requirements (my designers can fix this, hence the extra charge).

A small extra fee will apply if the designer uses a stock image. Extra charges may apply if you require more ideas from the designer (other than their initial three) or further tweaks after the image has been signed off.

A setup fee of $49 applies for books and ebooks published through IngramSpark.

Don’t forget to email me at danielle@wrateseditingservices.co.uk for your free Publishing Guide, which explains my process in more detail. I’ll also be happy to arrange a time to discuss your project via phone or Skype. Please note: I realise that not all books will fit into these categories. For instance, a children’s book or recipe book might contain fewer words and require more design work. In these situations, I would be happy to provide a quote suited to your specific needs.
