Bespoke - contact us for pricing

Does your project not conform to our standard pricing models? No Problem!

We're happy to work with authors with specific needs. For example, we've helped authors produce their children's picture books and we've been involved in a large photo novel project.

Contact us to arrange a free Zoom consultation.

Examples of projects that might fall into this category (this is not an exhaustive list):

  • children's picture books
  • ghostwriting for children's books
  • cook books / travel books or other books heavy on photography but with substantial text
  • publishing different formats on different platforms
  • creation of epub versions
  • technical books

Additional Services


Quantum Dot Press offers several services to supplement the publication process. The cost of each is dependent on precisely what is required.

 

Consultation   First meeting FREE

We provide consultations on:

  • manuscript formatting
  • self-publishing
  • cover design
  • marketing

Currently, all consultations are done online through Zoom.us. Prior to engaging with you as a new client, we will provide a free 60-minute consultation to assess your needs and whether we are positioned to meet your requirements.

Cover Design £50

We can do cover designs for any books, whether we publish them or not. Examples of our work can be found on our Books page or on our sister site LightSpeedDreams.net.

For this service, we supply a free 30 minutes consultation via Zoom to discuss your needs.

At a minimum we require a synopsis of the book, the genre it falls in, a back blurb, the title and author name, the book dimensions, and the number of pages (as well as whether they are white or cream).

It's also helpful to know which platform you are uploading to, as some have different requirements.

For e-book covers, we do not require any book size information.

Website Design    £400

If you're an author in need of an attractive website, we can help.

An author website is your own home on the internet where fans can find you, where you can post regular musing, story additions, or updates. And where you can build an e-mail list.

We can design an attractive author website for you based on either WordPress or Wix. Depending on your interest, it can be turned over to you for management, or we can manage it for a small monthly fee.

Full Tech Management

We are considering developing a service to manage the tech side of our author's businesses for a monthly fee.

This would include things like:

  • book uploads
  • account management with KDP, IngramSpark, etc.
  • website management and updates

Extras might include:

  • social media image creation
  • contacting media outlets for interviews or sending small written pieces to newspapers

If this is something you are interested in, please contact us.

We Want You to Be Satisfied

If we are unable to meet your requirements, we will let you know and suggest other service providers you may try.
