Publishing Costs

We understand that at times you may need help with some of the aspects of publishing, we do not expect you to be copywriters or editors and certainly not designers. We offer full editing and promotional services. Whether you are writing a novel or business manual we can help you take your story from conception to print and to sale.

However, every book that both FCM Publishing and our sister company Chronos Publishing produces, must have utilised professional services.

We offer individual services such as:-

  • Author coaching – £75p/h (block bookings available at a discounted price)
  • Editing – £15 per 1000 words
  • Proofreading – £10 per 1000 words
  • Formatting – £1.80 per 1000 Characters
  • Cover Design – starting from £200

Obviously, each book is different and so costs can change depending on book size.

Other services:-

  • Book review – marketability, understanding your audience, is there a need for the book? – £75 per hour
  • Ghostwriting – If you are unable through time constraints or ability, we can write the book for you. Please be aware that this will take a significant amount of time and research. Bespoke pricing on application starting at £5,000
  • Press Release – £150

We can combine all of our services into a tailormade package just for you. Once we have had an initial consultation we will be in a position to advise you.

We do have standard packages also such as our consultancy package, which includes:-

Book Consultancy Total package from £995 

We will help with your concept and storyline, give you that boost when you’re flagging and a bunk up to get you over that wall!
