How Much Should You Spend On Self-Publishing Your Book?

This might be helpful to many of you!

how_-much_to_chargeI received an article with this information and wanted to share. Although I didn’t use Reedsy for editing and my book cover, I found I fell within most of the pricing ranges.

One thing I didn’t see on this infographic was the Q&A time with the editor. I certainly had questions as I moved through the process and the last thing I wanted was to be left hanging if my editor said, “this doesn’t work in the plot.” I’ve worked with previous editors who would make a comment and instead of being able to ask a few questions you had to make the changes, submit, and pay again. I’m not clear what Reedsy offers, but if you’re looking for an editor, it’s an important topic to ask about.

    I went dirt cheap with my short story I published and just did everything myself. That probably wasn’t the best choice, but I didn’t have the money to do anything else at the time. And I figured spending thousands on publishing an online short story for 99¢ probably wasn’t a good investment.

      Yes, I would agree with you there. I’m collecting info on publishing, would like to publish a book once it’s finally complete in first draft and edited well. I’m pretty sure I’ll need to pay for some editing in the end but, I will look to research reasonable prices, the same with cover art. Thanks for your thoughts it’s good to know what other people have done 🙂
