Esstee Media can shepherd your book from its basic word processing document and present you with a professional quality book.
Esstee Media will act as the project manager and keep you fully informed of all developments. You will still be in control and will have the final say in any decisions.
Esstee Media has contacts in all fields of the publishing process. All these people have worked on self-publishing projects before so are well aware of the anxiety and financial restraints that self-publishing entails.
Whether you want to publish your book as a professional or as an amateur; whether you want one copy or a thousand; whether it is personal, for friends or for general consumption; whether it is a Xmas present, birthday present or because you just want to see what it looks like in print; whether it's for display, for distribution to a publisher or agent. Whatever the reason, whatever the lure, Esstee Media can help you make it possible.
Esstee Media can even turn your manuscript into an ebook if that is your wish.
See Book Distribution for Esstee Media's distribution model.
It's impossible to quote reliably here as each job is different.
Do you want your book edited? Do you need a cover design? Do you need an ISBN, a barcode, a proofreader?
Just some of the questions you will face.
However, for a typical 250 page novel you should budget for about $2000 .
A nonfiction book with pictures and tables and an index will require a bigger budget.
A book that is required to be brought to a stage where it will be used solely as a proof reading copy or for distribution to people for their comments will cost around $800.
And then there's the cost of printing. However, printing costs can be minimised by using a print on demand model. See the Publishing pages for more detail.
It really depends on what you want done and what your budget is. The level of work can be trimmed to suit any budget.
Free quotes are available for any aspect of the process.
