Disclaimer: The prices of our packages will vary depending on a number of variables including word count, the complexity of the internal formatting (if your book has pictures, graphs, or illustrations to go along with the body of the text), the style of illustration for your children’s book, and whether you want marketing and advertisement included as part of the package. We want our authors to succeed, therefore we continue to work with all budgets.

***Customized packages are available upon request. Please inquire with us to learn more about your options.

We at The Paper House stand by our work and therefore offer installment plans to make it easy for authors to introduce their books to the world! Our aim is to make our services affordable and within reach for our authors because OUR authors are OUR family.

We will work with you to come up with a comfortable and affordable payment plan.

What You Need To Know...

Prices will vary based on the length of the manuscript, complexity of the layout design (if manuscript includes graphs, charts, or images), and if expedited service is requested. 

The amount of time it takes to publish a book using all of our services mentioned in the packages up top varies on the length of the manuscript, the number of cover design revisions, and how busy we are. Typically a project will conclude in 8-12 weeks.

Once the editing, cover design, and internal formatting are completed on your book and approved, unique ISBN and barcode will be assigned. At this point your book will be ready for global distribution through or distribution network including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple iBooks, booksellers, libraries, along with Target and Walmart.

One of our publishing consultants will stay in constant communication with you throughout the process. Any questions or concerns can be addressed via email or phone with your publishing consultant.
