Cost To Produce A 225,000 Word Count Novel $13,758

Cost to produce a 225,000 novel

I won’t say who they are but I asked the question because I wanted to know the cost to produce a novel if an author did “all” the things the so-called experts say one must do for anyone to even consider taking a second look at your book.

The dazzling figures came to a whopping $13, 758 for book with a 225,000 word count. They didn’t explain what the “Additional Essential Services” were, nor why an author needed them.

Typesetting eBook $3600
Typesetting Print $3825
Typesetting (eBook + Print) $6300
Editing & Proofreading $6075
Cover Designing $348
Additional Essential Services $1035
Complete Package
(All of the Above) $13758

Mind you, but this doesn’t include the 2,000-7,000 dollars needed for marketing.

So basically, rounding off the fractions to the nearest hundreds, you could easily find yourself spending $20,000.

I say, hats off to anyone with $20,000 burning a hole in their pocket.

Guy sitting and thinking about how badly he’s being ripped off.

She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

  1. Pity there are scavengers out there, sorry about the experience!

    • Thank you for your input. Yes, it is a pity. I’m an author and I know it requires lot of hard work to create a novel. Despite how they’re often treated afterward, a lot of hard work went into the book’s creation. I just wish those who keep this untrue banter going would realize the plight of others and would stop pushing this agenda so fiercely because a lot of people write for a living and can not afford these stellar prices. They keep echoing what is not true; taking bread and butter away from many indie authors. I have read many professional edited books with errors. There is no such thing as a perfect book and I wish they would stop lying and saying there is.

  2. Someone must expose them, maybe self-publish is a good idea!
