Big changes are coming to Bookstand Publishing in 2022!
We’ve been working hard to rebrand Bookstand Publishing to reflect the goals and growth of the company, ensuring that we continue to provide professional publishing with a personal touch.
Our packages have been adjusted and pricing increased in order to offer the highest standard of services. We’ve attempted to keep pricing as low as possible while assuring we can keep our metaphorical doors open and your books available for purchase.
We will be offering four (4) packages differentiated by whether your book has the following:
- Your book has a text-only interior
- Your book has images/graphics within the text
- You want a Paperback & eBook edition only
- You want a Hardcover, Paperback & eBook edition
Our Classic Publishing Package will be for those authors who have a manuscript that is text-only and you want a Paperback and eBook edition.
Our Classic Plus Publishing Package is for manuscripts that have graphics or images included within the text and you want a Paperback and eBook edition.
Our Premier Publishing Package will be for authors with a manuscript that is text-only and want a Hardcover, Paperback and eBook edition.
Our Premier Plus Publishing Package is for manuscripts that have graphics or images within the text and you want a Hardcover, Paperback, and eBook edition.

The new pricing will be based on the page count of your manuscript and whether there are graphics or images within the interior text of your book. The more pages a book has the more time it takes to format, same as when there are images within the text, thus the price differentiation.
All of our services will see an increase in price, though only our package costs are being announced at this time. The new pricing for all services will be available when the new website launches in 2022.
The new publishing package pricing chart is below:
|Package Type||1-100 pages||101-200 pages||201-300 pages||301-400 pages||401-500 pages||501+ pages|
|Classis Plus |
