Publish with Summertime
Your publication journey starts with our appraisal of your work and a big picture edit. We will assess up to 3,000 words of your writing, providing comments on subject, style, content, marketability and ways forward. For this, we charge a non-refundable fee of £150. If we agree to publish your book our appraisal fee will be included within your publication quote.
These prices are illustrative only. All books are unique and you will receive a tailored quote based on your book in terms of size, level of proofread needed and likely complexity of design. All our programs include the following:
We also offer a unique scheme enabling authors to offset some or all of our fees by buying books for personal sale. Authors can choose a financial model that works best for them. Contact us for details.
Do you have a book to re-publish?
Do you have an existing book you'd like to republish? Maybe it needs a revision or could do with a makeover with a brand new design? Perhaps it's not written in English and you want it translated? As long as you have all the necessary files we can help.
'Your book from Scratch'
Take your writing to another level by combining one of our publishing packages with an intensive mentoring programme delivered by journalist, editor, writer, speaker and teacher Jo Parfitt. As well as writing over 30 books herself, Jo has helped well over a hundred new authors to write and publish their own. Her 12-month programme will help you brainstorm, plan, create and perfect your book from scratch.
We offer a generous discount on our usual fees for those combining Jo Parfitt's mentoring programme with a publishing package.
"What a joy it is to work with Jo on my second book! Why do I work with her? Because she intuitively sees into my heart, mind and soul. And with that insight, she draws from me the book that’s bubbling inside. She uses a magic mix of nurturing and caring with a clarity and discipline… that demands nothing but the very best from me. That’s what brilliant mentoring and coaching does. It’s rather like being sprinkled with fairy dust.
David Scarlett, author of The Soul Millionaire and the upcoming The Flight of the Soul Millionaire
Jo only works with one client at a time during the first few weeks of your programme so you can be sure of her undivided attention. Her mentoring programme includes the following:
Jo will work with you face-to-face, through email or via Skype/phone — as often as once a week if required — while you work through Release the Book Within. Expect to commit to working on your book for one day a week.
