Enhance your book's image and marketability with the following options.
Cataloging in Publication Data – $150
Cataloging data is a specialized language used by libraries to correctly and consistently catalog and shelve new books. (Look at the lower half of the copyright page of almost any book on your bookshelf and you'll find CIP data). Created by a professional librarian schooled in cataloging science, this adds to your book's professional look and feel.
Copyright Registration – $100
Note: Your book will be legally copyrighted the moment it's published, without purchasing this service. As part of the $499 setup fee, your copyright is secured under international law with the inclusion of your name and the © symbol on the copyright page.
Image Acquisition – $50
Every author receives a design unique to his or her book as part of the $499 setup fee. If you have an image or photo that you want to use for your cover, we'll incorporate it into the design at no additional charge.
Manuscripts over 100,000 words–––$100
Our standard $499 setup fee applies to a text manuscript of 100,000 words or less. This charge is for manuscripts between 100,000 and 200,000 words in length. If your manuscript is longer than 200,000 words, please talk to your customer service representative.
B&W interior images – $10 each; Tables and Charts – $20 each
We'll place and size them to fit the page and add your caption.
Index Formatting – $75
We'll create and format the index of your book based on the index tags you flagged in your Microsoft Word document. If you need an index and are not familiar with this function in Word, talk to your WingSpan Press service representative about your options.
Footnotes – Cost: $100 + $.50/footnote
We'll format and position your book's footnote references. Note that all footnotes must be flagged using Word's footnote function.
Endnotes – Cost: $50
End notes appear all together at the end of the book. These are normally flagged using Word's endnote feature, but because they appear all together at the end of the book, they may just be typed text and do not require as much formatting as footnotes.
Line Editing – $.02 per word.
It's almost impossible to edit your own work successfully. And nothing says 'amateur' like misspellings, bad grammar and poor word choice - no matter how well you may know your topic.
Development Edit – $.04 per word
The developmental provides and in-depth editorial review of your work with focus on organization and writing style.
For both fiction and non-fiction, we'll review grammar, word choice, sentence construction and logical organization. We'll help you shed the cliches and generally improve your approach to your material.
After editing, you'll receive a markup copy of your manuscript with corrections and improvement areas noted, plus, a thrity-minute conversation with our senior editor to discuss ways to improve the overall quality and approach to your book.
Good writing is marketable. Bad writing is not. We'll help you improve the writing to catch and keep a reader's attention.
Kindle and other Electronic Editions
Kindle Formatting and Publication – $150
Once the print version of your book is complete, we'll create ebook and Kindle versions of it. The Kindle edition will be sold exclusively through Amazon. The ebook version is distributed through Ingram Book Group, the same company that distributes the print edition. That will make the ebook available through dozens of electronic retailers in a format readable by virtually all e-book readers - Nook, Apple iPad, Sony Reader, Adobe Digital Editions and more.
Amazon search inside – $75
We'll create and upload an Amazon version of your book for their Search Inside program. When browsers view your book listing, they'll be able to look at a few random pages of the interior to get a sense of what the book is about and how it's written before they buy.
Google Book Search submission – $50
When people search for books on Google your book will be available for review, with links to major retailers for purchase. Buyers will be able to look at sample pages to get an idea what your book is about. Inclusion on Google also increases your internet exposure.
Making Changes to Your BookThere are two points at which you may want to make changes to your book: Before it's published, and after. It's best to review carefully and make changes before your book goes to print. Doing so after your book has been published is time-consuming and expensive.
Changes Before Publication – $50 per round of 25 changes
When you first sign up, we'll ask you to verify that you're submitting the final manuscript that you want to see in print before we begin layout. But sometimes, when you see the book in layout form, you find typos, or even things you wish you'd said differently the first time around. Using our online change request form, you'll be able submit changes before approving your book for print. After that changes are made, we'll provide you another pdf proof for review.
Printed Proof for Review – $100
Once layout and design of your book is complete, you'll receive a pdf version of it for review. Some people find it easier to review if they can see it as a printed book rather than viewing it on-screen or even printing it themselves. With this option, we'll print and send you a bound draft softcover copy of your book. The cost for setup and the first copy is $60. Additional copies of the same draft are $10 plus shipping.
Changes After Publication
Once your book has gone to print or has been published as an ebook, making changes requires that it be taken out of print and reassigned to a designer. Changes are made, then the manuscript or cover is sent back to you for review and approval. Upon approval, the book goes through quality control again and is uploaded and its internet catalog listing refreshed so that the new version appears to online retailers.
Softcover only: $150
Softcover and hardcover: $200
Softcover and Kindle/ebook: $200
Softcover, hardcover, and Kindle/ebook $250
