Pricing and Services

Summary

Warner House Press aims to be what the IBPA considers a hybrid publisher. We do not offer an all-inclusive package, but instead start our relationship with an author via editing services. After a free sample, we charge at or below industry standard rates for this service. If the author and WHP find we are a good fit, we then move on to formatting and publishing the work. Publishing is provided at no upfront cost to the author and our company royalty rates are lower than the industry standard. At any time throughout the process, the author or WHP can terminate the relationship.

Editing

Warner House Press offers competitive prices for our editing services based on a standard put forth by the Editorial Freelancers Association*.

Level of EditingPrice (Per Word)
Proofreading$0.007
Copyediting$0.011
Developmental Editing$0.022

Proofreading

The process of proofreading consists of light editing and quality-checking.  Spelling and grammar mistakes will be marked for correction, as well as awkward breaks or other formatting issues.

Copyediting

Copyediting is a more in-depth process than proofreading.  Throughout the document, spelling, grammar, syntax, and formatting issues will be marked.  In addition, the copyeditor will also check for consistency both in spelling and formatting as well as within the work itself and note any loose ends or plot holes as applicable.

Developmental Editing

The act of developmental editing includes all the technical aspects contained within both proofreading and copyediting.  In addition, we will draw upon our expertise as experienced writers and readers both to suggest stylistic and content changes.  When performing developmental editing, the goal is to make the author’s work the best version of itself it can be while still preserving its original voice and vision.

*Prices are converted from an hourly rate based on an average count of 500 words per page, with a work speed of 10 pages per hour for proofreading, 7 per hour for copyediting, and 5 per hour for developmental editing.

Formatting

To prepare for digital distribution, Warner House Press offers professional formatting of any text into EPUB format. This service is priced at a flat rate based on the number of words in the work and the presence of images, tables, or other special items that require specific formatting.

Works which include a significantly larger ratio of images to text, such as children’s books or photography collections, are priced at a special rate. Please contact us for more information regarding these exceptions to the pricing model.
