The Fig & The Vine Publishing and Consulting Services Explained:

The Fig & The Vine has always had as a main goal the ideal of producing authors who are true entrepreneurs - what we refer to as "AuthorPreneurs". The publishing industry offers more opportunities for authors than ever - but there are more challenges as well. Authors who are not serious business people do not enjoy success and satisfaction in their experience - whether they seek a large, mainstream publishing house, an independent experience or anything in between.                                                                                                                                               
In keeping with this priority, the F&V has transitioned from being a hybrid publishing house, providing both traditional and self publishing opportunities to select authors, to being more of a publishing co-op, with authors retaining the F&V imprint while enjoying full ownership of their respective titles and the titles' earnings as well.

We like to give our potential clients some ballpark figures so they can know what to expect. While we work with each client to give them the best value possible, our standard fees are as follows:

Copy Editing: $75 per hour
Content Editing: $75 per hour
Read-through and Evaluation: $35 - $45 flat rate and usually around $1 per page. This includes what's called a "light edit" with a detailed summary of suggestions for the title, along with organizational advice, market advice, etc.
