Our initial consultation is free of charge, though we ask for any travel expenses to be met. After that most communication is by phone or email. Should further face-to-face meetings be necessary, we may charge a small fee.
Because each book is tailor-made for you, the price will vary according to the quality and style of binding you choose as well as the length of your manuscript, the page size, the number of any photographs involved, the print run and any additional services you require.
We can print any number of books, starting from a single edition, but obviously the more you have, the lower the unit cost. Since these are bespoke articles, however, utterly unique to you and your family, it is more realistic to think of them not in terms of individual books, but as family heirlooms! Which indeed they are.
How rare to meet professionalism, integrity and friendly service, all between the same covers.
If you contact us we can talk through your ideas and give you an estimate. Our pricing is transparent, with no hidden costs. We will try to be as flexible as possible to meet your needs, but for an average length of book with a small print run you should reckon on a starting price of about £1,500.

We specialize in offering editorial help. Each project will be priced individually, but basic editorial work costs between £25 and £30 an hour. Face to face interviews cost £35 per hour. Ghost-writing costs vary hugely, depending on the amount of work involved, but for a full-length manuscript you should allow a starting price of £6,000.
The cost of an all-day workshop is £300 plus travel expenses. If there are less than four participants, this will increase slightly. Contact us for more information.
