During the journey to learn how to create the best books she could, Roslyn learned a thing or two about designing book covers and the marketing materials she’d need. She also discovered she had an aptitude for it and more importantly, as more people began to ask for her help on their covers and marketing materials, she found she really enjoyed this alternate form of creating. Her experience with editing for others also grew, as she worked on projects in numerous genres for authors of all experience levels, including NYT bestsellers.
So began Far Lands Publishing.
Cover and Marketing Material Design
Cover Design costs are as follows:
$100 – Ebook cover (includes up to 3 style revisions)
$70 – Ebook cover, addition to already created series (e.g. Series XYZ bk.2, and Roslyn created bk.1) (2 revisions)
$150 – Print and Ebook covers (includes up to 4 style revisions, small tweaks not counted as a style revision)
$120 – Print and Ebook covers, additions to already created series by Roslyn (3 revisions)
$180+ Romance/Erotica covers, depending on number of cover models, based on industry cautions and rules changes in 2015.
Any additional revisions to covers will cost $20 per revision.
It’s important for the author to have a good idea about what they are looking for up front, or the ability to trust in Roslyn’s design aesthetics.
Marketing Materials average $20-75, depending on the project.
Storyline Developmental Editing
What does that mean, you wonder? Basically this includes evaluating the word flow, consistency of details, word usage, and how it all fits into a pleasing (or not) package. Extensive notes are provided to the author to decide what they’d like to change.
Recommend at least two editing passes, with an author edit in between, plus a final Copy edit.
$500 – 100k+ word count
$400 – 80-99k word count
$300 – 50-79k word count
$200 – 25-50k word count
$100 – Under 25k word count
Able to recommend Copy editors for final line/copy edit for grammar and punctuation.
We all need to know our limits. 🙂

Roslyn created the cover of my third novel, Surface Tension, and polished the cover of my first novel so that it would blend in with covers for my other books. As we spoke about the story in Surface Tension, Roslyn quickly came up with a beautiful and polished cover that incorporated the three key aspects of the story. She was a pleasure to work with! – Laurel J. Standley, author
