sunmakers self publishing

Sunmakers has two programmes to get your book written and published. The Kudos Effect is designed to give you what you need to do it yourself, through books, workshops and/or coaching. The Book Alchemy Programme is where we will do some or all of it for you. By looking at the stages of book creation on the left, you can decide which bits you may need hep with, which bits you can do yourself and which parts you would like us to do for you.

A powerful concept and a great cover for the book.

To create a concept for the book and turn it into a visual metaphor and brand for the cover the price is £2000.

Ghost writing

We have professional high-end 'ghost writers' who will write your book for you, using your content and interviews if required. Cost is £120/hour. For a standard non-fiction book this could be up to £8000.

Editing and proofreading

We have professional content editors who will guide your copy to turn it into a compelling text. Example cost may be £1500. To proof read an average sized manuscript to check for final errors the price may be £800.


We will get you what you need to self publish (for £400), or if the book is the right kind of book it can be published by Sunmakers (£800) where we will handle registration of the ISBN, official deposit copies and global distribution through a print-on-demand system.

Design of typography and inside layout

We will take the finished manuscript and design and layout the entire book ready for print. £1500.

Ebook for Kindle and iPad

To create an ePub from a manuscript using previously designed or supplied cover artwork, £400.
