Rates are based on the time and skill involved in designing a book cover to cover. Most of my books are full of photography or art. If you have a short story, novel, or poetry book which is all/mostly text, please contact me for a quote.
Base rates include upload and storage of digital assets from disc (photos and text), layout of the book, design of the cover, insertion of all photos and text, proofing, one set of revisions*, and transfer/upload to the printer. The base rate is $4 per page regardless of format. Most books of substance are 80-120 pages (my samples shown are almost 120 and measure approximately 5/8″ thick).
Square, 7″ x 7″ (la Fleur sample)
Landscape, 10″ x 8″ (Country Boys sample)
Portrait, 8″ x 10″
Large Landscape, 13″ x 11″
*multiple revisions will result in a rate of $5 per page
Once the book is published and available for sale, the actual cost of each printed copy (hardcover) of the book will be approximately…
Square, $40 each*
Landscape, $50 each*
Portrait, $50 each*
Large Landscape, $85 each*
*prices based on 81-120 page hardcover printing. ask about prices for softcover books or those with different page counts
