Editing & Publishing Services

Writing is one of my first loves, but editing comes close behind. No matter how satisfying it is to spew  words onto a page, it is even more gratifying and oddly meditative rip into that initial draft and produce a polished piece in return.

I created Lucky 13 Productions’s publishing services specifically with Indie Authors in mind. Whether a beta reader is what you need, or a top-to-bottom makeover is on the menu, Lucky 13 Productions takes you from aspiring author to published author.

Here are the services that I offer:

  • Proofreading – Your manuscript will be read 2x and provided with comments and recommendations for improvement.
    – Pricing: $50.00 for the first 50K words. $10 for every 10K words after that.
  • Copy/Content Editing – Detailed notes and editing in regards to your manuscript’s content (pace, dialogue, character development, and plot).
    – Pricing: $100.00 for the first 50K words. $25 for every 10 words after that.
  • Line/Grammatical Editing – Detailed notes and editing in regards to grammar, punctuation, and spelling.
    – Pricing: $80.00 for the first 50K words. $20 for every 10K words after that.
  • Full Edits – The whole shebang. Detailed notes and editing in regards to grammar, punctuation, spelling, and content.
    – Pricing: $160.00 for the first 50K words. $30 for every 10K words after that.
  • Cover Design – An original cover will be created for your manuscript.
    – Pricing: Varies based on needs and artist used.
  • Formatting & Publication – Your book will be placed into the sizing of your choice and published in both paperback and Kindle formats.
    – Pricing: $80.00 for up to 60K words. $5 for every 10K words after that. (If cover is also needed, a discount will be provided.)

These prices are much lower than industry standard for a reason. I, myself, am an Indie Author, so I know how difficult it can be to get off the ground. It is for that reason that I decided to set up Lucky 13 Production’s publishing services with reasonable prices only. All prices are listed in USD.

Half-payment is due upfront when I begin on your project. The other half is due when the service(s) is completed. You will not receive your project back until the other half of the payment is received.

Time to completion depends on the demand of other projects in the queue at the time of your contact, and an ETA will be discussed with you upon contact. Please USE THE FOLLOWING FORM to request publishing services, and I will be in touch with you shortly!
