We also recognise that some people may wish to enhance their product and the options listed on Pricing & Options page are available. 

NON MEMBERS SERVICE
For authors who are not or do not wish to become members of the WFA we are happy to offer the same high level of service, but of course this does not come with the benefit of a membership discount. For continuity of quality, all elements remain the same as above, but the following are included as standard:
  • Editorial Critique
  • Proof-read and copy edited manuscript (substantive edit optional)
  • Extra 15 copies (total 20)
  • No extra charges for change of layout format or number of pages

We also recognise that some people may wish to enhance their product and the options listed on Pricing & Options page are available.

Because each book project is treated individually, the majority of these services are quoted for on a title by title basis. When you are deciding how to publish your work we are happy to discuss with you any possibility of these options.
