Tooltip for more information Extra pages are for the pages outside of your specified package's page count. If you got the Silver package, but have over the 199 page count, you'll be charged the price under the Silver package's extra pages service. You can also get this extra feature if you have added other pages to the book or just want a certain piece of literature edited outside of your project's scope.

The prices are based on how many extra pages your package has to offer overall, so the Gold package would be more expensive. If you have less than 5 pages to be edited and you have the Gold package, for example, you'll pay the minimum amount, which would be $10. If you have, for example, over 5 pages, but under 10 pages, it'll be rounded to the closest amount of pages. For example, if it was 6 to 7 pages, you'd be charged for the 5 page cutoff, but if it was 8 to 9 pages, it'll be rounded up to the 10 pages, charging you $20 total for 10 extra pages being edited.
Tooltip for more information The Book Review extra service is a thorough analysis of your book, poem, play, or any other piece of literature that you have. You do not need to have an editing package to get this feature. If you want an honest review of your book to see if it would be something worth publishing, or a simple review that I can give you on either Amazon as a comment, a post on your Website or social media page, or just a personalized opinion of the book itself, this would be something you'd be interested in. I would purchase your book (if published) via Amazon and give it an entire read and give you a review and post it anywhere you would like for your fans and audiences to view.
Tooltip for more information The Video Review extra service is the same exact thing as the Book Review extra service, however, the difference is where it is posted. It'll be uploaded to my YouTube, under a special "Video Book Reviews" playlist, where I have over 2300 subscribers. I'll also upload it to my Facebook fan page where I have over 2200 likes, and will also share the video review on my Instagram and Twitter, both of which have over 1300 follows.
Tooltip for more information The Social Media Promotion extra service is where I'll promote your book on all my social media outlets, including both my personal Facebook page (which has over 2000 friends) and my fan page (which has over 2200 likes), my Instagram account (which has over 1300 followers), and my Twitter account (which has over 1300 followers) and once day for one full week, I'll post your book with any text or links regarding the book for my fans, family, and friends to see and get you potential sales. For one post per day on all four outlets for seven days (one week), it'll cost you the price listed, which is $20. There is no hidden fee regarding the $20 per day, it is simply $20 for the entire week. You cannot beat such an amazing promotion.
Tooltip for more information There is a spot on this very Website where I sponsor my friends, family, and fans businesses. Well, there is another section regarding book sponsorships where on my Website, you'll be able to have your book featured on my site and as a clickable link to your book's store so anyone who visits my site can purcahse it. This is a yearly fee of $200 and is a one time upfront fee. If you are happy with the service, you can renew at any time, however, it'll be posted for one full year with no refunds. If you get no extra sales, the payment is final and the sponsorship lasts for the entire year from the day you purchased the sponsorship. There is no hidden fee regarding the $200 per year, it is simply $200 for 365 days. It is a one lump sum payment and there will be no payment plans by day, week, or month included.
Tooltip for more information The Blog Story extra service is a simple blog post on my site that I'll make regarding your book as a promotion for yourself that anyone who views my blogs on this site will be able to see, with links to where your book can be purchased, as well as any links to your social media accounts. There is no hidden fees or a weekly, monthly, or yearly charge. It is simply $50 for one blog post. If you require a blog post for two different books, it would be the cost of two blog posts, $50 for each book, so $100 total.
