Please understand that Volo Press Books is only recently offering publishing services to the public. This means that there is not yet (nor can there ever be guaranteed) a steady stream of work. One month we may have three people starting projects, then we might go two months without a project. Volo Press Books projects are not capable of and are not meant to be your sole source of income, so please do not expect this.
The following rates apply unless otherwise notified. Example project payment (in parentheses) is a 40,000-word novel.
♥ Ghostwriting: $0.20 per word ($8,000)♥ Developmental Editing: $0.03 ($1,200)♥ Copy Editing: $0.04 ($1,600)♥ Digital Formatting: $0.02 ($800)♥ Print Formatting: $0.03 ($1,600)♥ Cover Design: $200 (just the cover image, not the formatting of the wrap)♥ Proofreading: $0.01 per word ($400)♥ Promotion: Bids will be requested and the best one accepted.
Unless otherwise specified due to special circumstances, payments will be delivered after the review of your work for a particular project. After this form is received, you will receive either an exam or a request for portfolio submission (both, in some cases). If your work is satisfactory, you will move on to the last step of the vetting process.
Thank you for considering working with Volo Press Books.
