1. Book blocks.

WSM Technical Services will prepare a simple book block from a standard word processor file (such as a plain Word .doc) suitable for digital printing for $300 and up, depending on size of book and difficulty. A typical prose book of 200 - 300 pages would be $300 to $350.

Once the book block has been accepted, any further changes requested will be billed by WSM Technical Services at $60 an hour.

Note: This is not copy editing, but preparing pages in a readable font with the right spacing, etc. as a .pdf file acceptable for uploading to Lightning Source, Inc. and other digital printers.


2. E-book Conversions.

WSM Technical Services will prepare a book (from a plain Word .doc or .rtf file) for all e-book formats for a flat $200. ($250 with images etc.) This includes a separate Kindle conversion as well as a Smashwords.com conversion that includes .mobi, Nook, Sony, Epub, Ipad, html, .pdf and more. The book will be listed in the Amazon Kindle store as well as Barnes & Noble and more.


3. Covers prepared from existing art work

WSM Technical Services will make a simple front cover, back cover and spine as a single .pdf file, from art work you provide, suitable for uploading and printing to Lightning Source, Inc. and other digital printers for $250 and up. If you have an ISBN number, there will be a bar code included for Lightning Source, Inc. Email with description for an estimate.

Note: The next step, should you use these services, would be to find a digital short run printer. Here are a couple I found on the Internet-- you would upload your .pdf cover file and .pdf book block file and the finished perfect bound paperpack books would run $4.00 each if you buy @ 250 copies. This is not a recommendation-- just a sampling of where to go for printing.
