Our Commercial Services listings contain publishing and writing services that offer editorial, marketing, design, self-publishing, and other business-focused assistance to writers in exchange for fee. If you’re looking for professional help to develop or distribute your work, this is the place to search, but we recommend familiarising yourself with our Beginner’s Guide to Commercial Services and make use of the following tips for ensuring you get what you pay for.
1. Request Quotes from a variety of sources, to get an idea of average rates.
2. Don’t hesitate to ask for samples of materials, drafts, or mock-ups.
3. Carefully look over all contracts, including fine print, and request legal advice before signing. Does the contract require you to buy copies of your own book, or pre-sell a certain number before publication? Do you own the rights to commissioned design, or are you leasing it from the designer?
4. Keep detailed records and copies of all documentation and correspondence, including emails, letters, and phone calls.
