If your book is non-fiction and requires an index, the cost will vary depending on the length, complexity of subject, and the desired thoroughness of the index.
* Graphics vs Illustrations: Graphics are items like graphs, charts, and tables, and simple infographics, as well as simple decorations and motifs. Illustrations are drawn representations of your content.
** Copy, Line, and Substantive Editing: Substantive editing reviews structure, plot or story flow, characterization and voice, and tone; this considers the piece as a whole. Line editing reviews the creative content, writing style, and language usage, all at the paragraph level. Copy-editing and proofreading are the most common forms of editing. They review grammar, spelling, and punctuation, as well as internal consistency throughout. A full edit is all three types of editing, done in three separate read-throughs – If you’re unsure how much editing your manuscript will require, please send me a chapter for a review.
*** Covers: Images supplied: you send me the photos or illustrations you wish included on your cover, and I lay it out. Photographic: I find images appropriate to the manuscript and lay out the cover. Custom: I illustrate, or modify photographs to best give a taste of your book to potential readers.
