Self-Publishing Calculator

Welcome to the Self-Publishing Calculator! We’ve done our best to create a thorough, accurate calculator to help you figure out how much this self-publishing thing is going to cost you.

Of course, this isn’t an exact science. Costs vary widely, and while we’ve researched prices to the best of our ability, there’s bound to be someone out there who can do things cheaper (or who charges significantly more!). This is meant to give you a ballpark figure, not a firm guideline.

It’s also very thorough. Please don’t get overwhelmed! Many of the options aren’t necessary, especially if you’re just starting out. They’re included for the curious.

We KNOW you can do this no matter your budget. (Especially with collaborators!) This calculator will show you exactly how much you can reduce your costs by partnering up! It’s a lot, trust us.

As you may have noticed, we’re a publishing team who shares a single pen name and pools our business talents. We love it and highly recommend it and are hoping to share more about our strategies soon.

Stay tuned!
