After we discuss and agree upon format and size, and all materials are submitted (see submissions page), I will design your book and, after you approve the proof, it will be printed on demand by createspace.com, a self-publishing division of amazon.com. The book will automatically be assigned an ISBN code and will be made available for sale at amazon.com and other outlets at whatever price you designate. Your royalties will be based on retail price less cost to produce (they will provide you with minimum selling price). Your only costs (in addition to my fee for services) are for any printed proofs ordered as the book is being created, and for your own purchases (at wholesale) once it is published ...no minimum order is required. For example, my 44 page color exhibition catalog with essay, "Complexity" cost me $3.83 per copy (plus postage) to order. I set the retail price at $14.95, my royalty is $5.94 on amazon.com or $8.03 when purchased through the createspace online store. I can also order copies at wholesale and sell them myself at whatever price I choose or give them as gifts. The cost to you for a 50 page book will be less than $5 ....far less than any other self-publishing service and includes additional free marketing features not available on other platforms!
After an initial (free) consultation, I will design and format your book from images and text provided by you. You will have an opportunity to make any design revisions on a printed proof before final approval. I will handle all of the registration, submission, and production aspects through final proof approval and publication. After that, the account will be turned over to you for future ordering and managing (no additional work will be needed on the book).
28-50 page book...$500* (rates for books over 50 pages available upon request)....50% due in advance, the balance due when the account is turned over to you.
* fee includes one revision if not satisfied with the initial printed proof. Revisions beyond those on the first proof....$50 per hour
NOTE: Editing services...The services of a professional copy editor are available for an additional fee if needed.
