Every author and each book has different needs. This is why I customize every service. At the same time, I honor a transparency policy. Whether I work on an hourly rate, or at a flat rate, depends on your specific needs.
I want to give you an idea of some average costs (not starting prices) so we both enter our exploration with realistic expectations. The following average total costs are for services personally performed by me on a 50,000-word long manuscript.
Coaching: $1,000 to lead you through a complete first draft
Content or Developmental Editing: $4,000
Self-Publishing: $18,000 to begin with an idea and then celebrate with printed books
If I recommend that a member of my team fulfill a role on your journey or help me when time is tight, the cost to you is less. I do review their work and offer feedback before sending it on to you, to be sure it meets Full Bloom Publication's quality guarantee.
For self-publishing, journeying with me removes the biggest struggle authors face: feeling creativity and vision ground up as the gears of a systematized, impersonal, sales-focused, volume-based company has them work with person after person until they feel too confused and dizzy to know if their book is as effectively transformational as it can be. I offer a rare alternative, with highly interactive, engaged guidance and expertise.
