Beside our curatorial process, we also offer self-publishing services for those who are looking for help in editing, designing and promoting their work. For any quote request, please send an email at, with a description of the book, page count, and time frame.


Proofreading, Copy Editing, Content Editing

w/ our Editor In Chief Brian Sheffield


Proofreading: Simply reading to check for general errors such as spelling and grammatical mistakes. Does not consider content. $3 per page, or about $20 per hour


Copy Editing: About improving style. Dealing mostly with flow and aesthetic when it comes to the writing and dealing less with content, though content might be involved if it feels like there are plot-holes or missing information. $5 per page, or $60 per hour.


Content Editing: This is digging into the content and changing work to make more sense. This might include taking out information or even adding in completely new information. Flow and grammar are noted here, but this is generally for when the book requires HEAVY editing work top to bottom. $8 per page, or $80 per hour.
