  • SilverWood Books - Frequent Questions
    to us and it definitely isn t vanity publishing either It s more akin to what you can expect from a mainstream publisher a small professional team will take you through the publishing process from submission to book delivery and beyond with open and transparent pricing structures and aftercare that includes sales fulfilment stock storage and maintenance invoicing accounting and regular payments to the author Empowered Publishing offers you the freedom to get on with what you enjoy your writing We charge a fair price for professional publishing services and we only tell you that your writing is wonderful if it really is If it isn t we ll let you know as sensitively and constructively as we can and encourage you to join a writing group find an editorial mentor or work with us to improve your manuscript This is because our business model works by selling books there s no mileage for us in producing books that aren t any good because they re unlikely to find a market We aim to produce high quality books that writers can be proud of and readers can enjoy beautiful books to give to read to treasure and we re building a reputation for doing just that Many of our authors come back to us time and again to publish other books which is the sort of endorsement that makes us excited and proud 7 How much does it cost to publish with SilverWood Books We firmly believe that there s no such thing as a standard book or a one price fits all Every project is unique and brings its own challenges Book production can be divided into three stages manuscript preparation editing and proofreading pre press including typesetting and cover design and printing Printing is fairly predictable and we can offer prices for all text b w interior with a colour cover Pre press by contrast is a moveable feast a book containing 60 pages of text will involved significantly less work than a longer book containing text alongside many photographs captions charts footnotes appendices boxed material or bullet point lists and a range of heading hierarchies all of which take time and skill to format prepare for print and position within the overall artwork As a general guide a self funding author wishing to publish a retail quality book should budget a minimum of 2000 Anything less is probably a false economy because corners are being cut somewhere 8 How much is copy editing and proofreading Fees would vary according to the complexity of the text and the condition of the manuscript or whether English is the writer s first language Text with academic legal or medical content that needs a high level of fact checking and understanding of terminology will be charged at a higher rate than fiction We prefer to see your manuscript so we can assess the extent of the work involved and give you an accurate estimate and sometimes we ll copy edit a page or two to demonstrate the attention to detail required for professional publication As a general guide copy editing starts at around 8 per 1000 words 9 Does SilverWood Books give value for money We certainly think so Our research shows that a conservative estimate of costs to professionally edit proofread design typeset and project manage an average 70 000 word novel up to the point of printing is around 7500 After that a budget will need to be set for printing binding warehousing and distributing the books followed by launch costs advertising and marketing Our range of pre press packages cost effectively bundles many of these services together and offers you the opportunity to have your book professionally prepared for print usually for a lot less than 7500 We don t use templates or off the peg jacket designs even with our most basic publishing packages every page is individually formatted and your book cover artwork is created especially for your work Our optional Writers Services Menu allows you to select additional or enhanced services if you d like them Editing and proofreading are popular add ons because it s vital to make sure your book is the very best it can be before it goes to print 10 Why does SilverWood retain a percentage on books it sells We manage our authors book sales through a wide range of trading accounts across the world If you decide to go ahead and work with us you ll be using SilverWood Books to produce publish and distribute your book and you won t need to set up these trading accounts yourself or register for withholding tax in US territories You own all the books and you set the retail price of your book A trade discount is set for general retail and wholesale trade usually 25 30 As your distributor we also take a trade discount on all book sales that are fulfilled through our relationships within the book supply chain You keep 100 of the proceeds from books you take delivery of and which you sell yourself at talks seminars and other events 11 I m publishing my book to make a profit is that a good idea Possibly not but publishing can be profitable if you have a clear business plan and you ve written a book that is likely to be in demand non fiction usually does well as do local or niche interest books Of course there are some amazing success stories just put the names John Locke Amanda Hocking and EL James into any search engine Closer to home some SilverWood authors are cutting a dash with their achievements prestigious awards sales in the thousands per month high royalty payments and national media coverage However the reality is that most writers who publish their own work sell modestly And selling is usually accompanied by a lot of hard work a good promotional strategy and a healthy dose of luck and good timing right book right
