Move into print - frequently asked questions

How long does it take?

We will send you a quotation within 48 hours, showing you the cost of creating the 'master' artwork for your book, the cost of printing each book, and any recommendations we have about book size and design concepts. Once we get going, the creation of the book will take between five and ten working days. We are flexible to author's working methods so it’s good to discuss the the overall project time at the outset and how you like to work. Once approved by you, the book will take between two and three weeks to appear on Amazon, at which time it will also be available for small print runs for your own copies, and purchase by bookshops.

What about copyright?

You retain copyright. We don't ask you to sign a contract. We do ask you to sign a letter attesting  that the book is your work and that it is doesn't contain anything that breaks any laws.

What are the costs to the author?

The cost of creating and printing the 'master' book is the main cost. As a rough guide, a 150 page 6x9 inch book will cost £250-£300 if created from a standard Word file with block paragraph formatting and some photos or illustrations.

How do I make money from my book?

If you set your book price at £15.00, you are likely to earn about £5.00 per copy sold. Having paid £250 for the setup, you'll therefore need to sell 50 copies to break even. After that, each £5.00 is profit.

Can you print in colour?

We can produce softback and hardback colour books suitable for children’s stories, graphic novels, text books, travel books with photography and artists’ catalogues. Just specify colour ‘internal’ in your quotation request. Colour reproduction is excellent and we are happy to send you a sample.
