A la carte services...

Because sometimes you need just a little of this and a little of that...


We are a company created by and for authors. As such, we charge up-front fees and
we do not retain any rights or require any royalties.
We want to help you succeed!


Hourly and per word rates—SPS offers four levels of editing depending on your manuscript and preferences: developmental (which we offer as writing coaching), substantive, copyediting, and proofreading. If you're not sure what you need, send us a sample, and we'll evaluate it for free.

Submission review

Individual and package pricing—Before you submit your project to an editor or agent, make sure your work is at its best. We'll help you polish your first three chapters, query letter, synopsis, or a complete submission package.

Writing Coaching

Package pricing—Do you have a great story, but you're not sure how to tell it? Self-Publishing Services loves to teach authors how to bring their writing to the next level. No matter where you are in your journey as an author, we have someone with the expertise and experience to push you and help you learn how to take your writing from “good” to “great.”

Publishing Packages

Package pricing — Need more than one of the services SPS offers? Bundle them together and save. This is ideal for the author who wants to write but would rather hand over the minutiae of getting the book ready for purchase to someone else. We'll gather information on all your preferences up front, give you timelines for each deliverable, and get to work. Self-Publishing Services is here to be your no-hassle partner in getting your indie book into the hands of the public.



Variable rates—SPS offers both e-book and print book formatting for all genres. 

Cover design and Illustration

Variable rates—Great covers sell books. Self-Publishing Services' graphic designers work with you to create a professional cover based on your vision. We also provide illustration services for your book project with a range of illustration styles to choose from.


Per platform rate—If SPS was your manuscript formatting partner, or if you have a manuscript formatted by someone else, we would love to help you upload your e-book or print book to the platform that best meets your distribution needs.

metadata creation

$75 per hour — SPS can develop the right metadata for your book. Metadata will help get your book found in a flooded marketplace.

isbn and copyright acquisition

Per service and package rate —These are the little, but important, details SPS can help you manage. Protect your work without the headache.

Marketing and consulting

Package pricing—Want to market your book but don’t know where to begin? We can help ground you in the whirlwind of marketing-speak. Through a series of interviews and/or phone calls, we will help define your needs and create a plan that works for you.
