What Services Are Included In Your
At Whitehallpublishing.com, we provide you with
pre-editing, editing, custom cover design,
typesetting, layout and a college level education in
publishing that you won't get anywhere else!
Among the many steps included in the Premium
Level is a professional pre-publish review of
your book. During this stage of the process, we
will read your manuscript and provide you with
"notes" on tone, direction, characters, marketing
strategies and much more. This is before the
formal editing process begins and is designed to
help you take your original manuscript from great
idea to effective, marketable finished work.
This service is just one of several that separates
Whitehallpublishing.com from other companies
who offer 'author-assisted' publishing services.
Our goal is to help you create your best work that
is also marketable after it is published. Again, you
are in the driver's seat so while our professionals
may provide you with "notes", the final decision
will always be up to you. I can say that without
exception, all of our authors have a "light bulb"
moment when they read the "notes" and realize
that their book could go to the next level of
excellence by making some or all of the changes
At Whitehallpublishing.com we are on your side.
We share your dream of creating a great book, and
to that end, we are happy to share with you our
years of publishing and marketing experience to
help you create a finished product that will not
only make you proud, but one that will also have
the most impact on your readers and one that can
move your writing career to the next level. With
us, your books will receive:

E-mail Support Throughout
Unlimited e-mail access to address any and all
questions you may have about publishing,
marketing, sales, book signings, event planning,
book tours, online sales, and any other questions
you may have about the publishing process. We
recommend you invest in a 3-ring binder and keep
all of our e-mail exchanges so you can refer to that
information again and again over the years. That is
why we operate via e-mail, so you have a paper
trail and you don't have to take frantic notes
during phone calls.

that will go on the back cover of your book before
it goes to the printer. This is a great way to

books are safely delivered to your door!

How Do I Get Started?
When you are ready to get started, simply e-mail
us a note to email@example.com with
the basic specs of your book (page count, trim
size) and we'll connect with you to set up a phone
call so we can answer any questions you may
have. During the call, we can gather the basic
information we will need to move forward.
After the call, we will send you a publishing
contract that you can review, sign and fax back to
us. We are happy to bill any major credit card for
your convenience or you are welcome to pay by
wire transfer or Pay Pal.
We split your flat fee payment into three
installments both for your convenience and for
your protection. Your first payment is only 50% of
the total flat fee and it is due upon contract
signing. The second installment is due after the
book is fully edited, cover design is completed and
we are ready to go to press. At that point, 40% of
the remaining balance will come due and the third
and final 10% installment payment will not come
due until your books are delivered to you after

information, we will e-mail you asking for your
manuscript to be sent as an attachment in an
e-mail to us (in .doc or .txt format) or through the
post via CD-Rom or USB stick.
Once your manuscript arrives, we will begin in
earnest, the publication of your book!
Books can be published in a wide variety of trim
sizes (height and width of the book). We work on
a flat fee basis on all elements of your project. We
don't like surprises anymore than you do and for
that reason, we want you to know exactly what
your costs will be, before you sign any contracts
with us. Our goal is to put you in the driver's seat
on your project both creatively and financially.
Flat fees on the Premium Level are:
$2500.00 for books under 50 pages + your print
costs, (this would include children's full-color,
hard cover books),
$4250.00 for books from 51 to 200 pages in
length, (this covers most trade paperbacks and
soft cover how-to books), add your print cost to
$4750.00 for books between 201 and 300 pages in
length, (this covers most novels), add your print
cost to this.
$5000.00 for any books exceeding 300 pages, add
your print cost to this.

fee because the cost will vary from book to book
depending on the number of pages, trim size and
quantity requested. HOWEVER, before you sign
a contract with us, we will get you the print
costs in writing so you know to the penny
what your total production costs will be.

during the three phases of the editing process.

returned the file to us, we will do the layout of the
book and again, we will e-mail you a PDF file so
you can see what the layout looks like and you will

final aesthetic pass that you can use to make any
other last-minute changes. we will provide you
