Killer Services. Indie Price.

Whether you are polishing a short story or publishing a full-length novel, BookSaw will give you a professional product at an indie price. Our services include copy and developmental editing, manuscript critiques, self-publishing advice, marketing consultations, formatting, and cover art.

Don’t see what you’re looking for above, contact us and we’ll determine if we can help. 

Editing Rates:

In our experience, per-word flat rates are not always fair to authors…or editors. Every project is different, and we want to tailor both our service and our price to your needs. On average, most projects will be between $.008 and $.01 per word. Yours may be more or less depending on several factors. 

To get an exact quote, please fill out the contact form below and upload the first ten pages of your manuscript. If you are looking for a writing, self-publishing, or marketing consultation, skip the upload and describe what you want to get out of a session with BookSaw.

Design rates:

Do your books look amateur when they go to market? Are you having issues laying out your books in Word and then having the files turned into pdf, mobi, and epub files? That's the problem. You're using Word. BookSaw lays out and designs the raddest books using InDesign and exporting eBook files in fixed format. That means artwork and linkable advertising IN your book to drive sales.

Although pricing depends on page number, BookSaw can design most books for a $100-$200 flat fee. We'll also layout your cover so it looks professional and explodes off the shelf. 

Self-Publishing Package:

Get everything you need to self-publish your book! From editing and art to uploadable files and a marketing plan.
