Pricing

We're not cheap, but we are affordable, and you definitely get your money's worth.

NOTE: These prices are correct as of May 2016 and apply to books that are predominantly text (such as fictional novels, novellas, anthologies and books for older children, as well as non-fictional works such as biographies, memoirs and academic texts).

Please contact us if your book is predominantly pictures/graphics.

We will provide you with the information and any revenue from your sales (less any ongoing distribution costs) at the end of each quarter for the preceding quarter (i.e. Q1 January-March is payable at the end of Q2 April-June).
