Paid Publishing Options

It’s our job to help you create the book you’ve always dreamed of. There are several ways that we do this, designed to meet you at the level you need. You own all the rights to the work we do for you, and you have final veto over all design decisions.


 Piscataqua Press Package: $2000

These books are published under our imprint, Piscataqua Press, and appear on our website. These books must be professionally edited, and this price includes copyediting (for sentence clarity, word choice, & structure) and proofreading (for typos). If you have already had the book professionally edited to a high standard, the price will be adjusted downward.

This package includes:

Full design work and layout of manuscript

Cover design

Ebook design

(Extra cost: +200 for books longer than 90k words)


Piscataqua Press Package: $1800

This includes all of the above, but without copyediting, just simple proofreading for typos. The book is still considered a Piscataqua Press title and is presented as such.

How the money works

Our fees:

We take two thirds of the publishing fee at the signing of the contract, and the remaining third when you have approved the final proof.

 

Ordering books for yourself:

This takes 15 to 20 days, and must be paid for when the order is placed. The cost to you is the cost of printing and shipping the book, which is generally about 50% of the retail cost of the book to the public. Orders can be as few as 10 copies. Discounts are available for orders of 100, 250, or 500 copies.
