Manuscript Assessment

Embark on your publishing journey with our manuscript assessment and action plan, an essential facet of our book publishing services. With an initial fee of $595, a duo of expert editors with major publishing experience delves into up to 7,000 words (additional word count extra) of your manuscript across three weeks. They'll offer targeted feedback and actionable recommendations, which includes a solutions-focused "tough love" session with our lead editor. Beyond this, you'll benefit from a detailed analysis of your manuscript's tone and writing quality from Izzard's advanced AI assessment. It's the initial stride in our personalized approach to book publishing.

Most authors begin with our comprehensive manuscript assessment and action plan. This critical first step of "tough love" lets us plot the course, ensuring your book is on the right path while instilling confidence in our authors. Coupled with our supportive publishing team and focus on solutions and personal growth, this is part of our secret sauce in how Izzard Ink turns ordinary writers into extraordinary authors.

Unique Pathways in Book Publishing Services

In the realm of book publishing services, investing in a manuscript assessment can be a game changer. It is a way for an author to test the waters before a larger investment and answer the fundamental question: "What is needed for my manuscript to be published?" For some, refining the manuscript with a seasoned writing coach might be the best route. For others, if the manuscript assessment points to a clear pathway toward publishing a high-quality book, and we've developed an action plan in collaboration with the author, moving straight to editing could be the ideal next step. Let's find out the next steps for your manuscript.

Post-Assessment Editing in Book Publishing Services

With your manuscript assessment wrapped up, you'll gain clarity on the editing your book requires and why, which is an essential part of our book publishing services. The process might involve a light copy edit that sharpens sentence-level language or a thorough developmental edit that examines structure, plot, content, and characters.

Most authors should anticipate setting aside $5,000 to $10,000 for developmental and line/copy editing. Be prepared to spend one to three months refining your manuscript in collaboration with the dedicated Izzard Ink team. Crafting a masterpiece takes time, but with our expert guidance, you'll see your book reach its fullest potential.

The Press Run Journey

We provide high-quality press-run services for visually captivating books like art compilations, coffee-table displays, and children's literature. Our book publishing services utilize top-tier overseas printers, and we also offer competitive US-based printing options. Prices vary depending on the book's specifications, including size, paper type, color, etc.

Given the base cost of setting up a press run, the starting price is typically around $10,000. However, the per-book cost decreases with larger volumes. That's why press runs usually aren't recommended for less than 500 to 1,000 copies, and they become increasingly cost-effective with higher volumes. For print runs, it's important to note that a third-party distributor must accept books to manage inventory and distribution effectively.
