In plain language, a 30,000-word manuscript with 5-10 photos as a standard 6×9 softback would make a 160 page book. It would cost you $1,000 for the book design and publishing services, and would be $5.50 to 6 per book to print.
This is only an example of pricing a book. There are many influencing factors in publishing a book, including, type set and line spacing, design factors, quality and editing of photos, necessary level of copy editing, etc., so the best way to get the most accurate estimate is by providing your finished manuscript, telling us what services you are interested in and allowing us to give you a custom estimate.
A general estimate guide for completed book publishing services, all interior and cover work, minus copy editing:
- 30,000 words, 5-10 photos = $1,000
- 60,000 words, 10-20 photos = $1,600
- 100,000 words, 20-25 photos = $1,800
