Wattle & Willow Books (WW&B) – SERVICES and FEES
1. FULL ASSISTED SELF-PUBLISHING SERVICE:
providing self-publishing advice, guidance through the process, and a print-ready physical book.
2. BOOK COVER DESIGN ONLY:
print-ready cover for a book.
3. PUBLISHING CONSULTATION:
As a publishing consultant, this is what Cameron can offer you:
a 1 and half hour meeting (in-person or online) where he will briefly reflect on your manuscript and hear your plans and dreams in publishing. Then we can talk through the 3 main pathways in publishing, and which is best for you and your product. The main pathways are:
– Fully self-publishing.
– Assisted self-publishing (this is something that WW&B can help you with)
– Publishing through an established publisher (like Penguin or Random House).
By the conclusion of this consultation session you will have a recommendation on
the best suited publishing pathways for you, and a clear plan for the next steps to bring your book from dream to reality.
Contact Cameron and Ramak for current fees.
THE PROCESS FOR INITIATING DESIGN WORK:
To begin the process the Author and WW&B sign a simple Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) to set down time-frame and expectations. Then the author must make an initial deposit of 20% of fee, with the remaining amounts due be paid on the conclusion of the agreement.
WW&B will not be your publisher – we assist in self-publishing.
WW&B does not design or create ebooks – print books only.
