Rates & Quick Quote

TEC’s fees are based on the length and difficulty of the project and on fair market rates.

For a Quick Quote, fill out our online form and send us a few pages of your work (up to 5 pages). Please note these are not hard and fast costs, but estimates to help us determine a budget for your project. We do not charge for these estimates.

If you are a new author and have completed a book manuscript and will be self-publishing, you may want to read our blog that describes the planning process for your publishing journey.
