BZ Hercules' Mission
The publishing playing field has changed...and BZHercules.com is on board.
The mission of BZHercules.com is to provide low-cost, high-quality services and products to authors, students, and others in need of assistance with editing and publishing work. We cater to the needs of indie and self-publishing authors and artists.
You and your colleagues, publishing group, or just a group of authors may participate in Consortium Services. At $14,000 per year, you and your group are entitled to editing (basic editing) of up to 40 books per year (based on a count of 300 pages--extra pages may be credited or paid extra for per page at the basic rate), simple covers, and basic formatting for e-book.
Proofing starting at $.85/page; Content Editing (includes proofing) starting at $1.10/page. Formatting for all major outlets--ebook, print, ePub! Blurbs, synopses, cover letters, uploading, indexes!
Here are the editing services prices in a nutshell. For more detail, see the Author Services page.
Editing is charged by the page-- double-spaced, 12-point TNR, 1" margin all around, 0.5" indent.
Proofing--one round to check for typos, misspellings, punctuation, and other errors. $0.85/page
Basic/Content editing—a one-round edit for content (when things don’t make sense to plot or character or simply are factually incorrect) and mechanics (grammar, spelling, usage, sentence structure, etc.). $1.10/page.
Edit plus proofing—one round of the basic edit, manuscript is returned to the author, then a round of proofing, both as described above. $1.75/page
Triangulation—includes the basic edit and also a critique of the work in the form of copious comments throughout. The manuscript is then returned to the author for consultation and approval. After any changes are made by the author, then a proofing is completed. $2.10/page
Basic edit plus two proof readings—as described above with two proof readings instead of one; after each round, the manuscript is returned to the author for consultation and approval. $2.60/page
Triangulation plus an extra proofing—as described above, but with two proof readings instead of one. $2.75/page
Formatting with editing services is discounted at $1.50 per chapter per outlet (page breaks count as separate chapters; graphics and special sections as well as bullet-ed/numbered sections are also extra).
