How much does it cost to publish a book?

Ebook publishing prices range from around $600 to $2,000 usually, depending on what you need done and the complexity of the ebook. Our prices include full project management and quality control, something that you take upon yourself when you go through website funnel businesses or DIY services. We are also 100% up-front on your costs and expected outcomes.

Our printed book design prices include project management, the involvement of multiple team members for quality control and good workflows. Prices range from about AUD $1,499 to $10,000 +GST depending on the content and length of your book and the methodology you want followed during its production and distribution.

Ebook conversion costs

Our ebook conversion charges start at $299+GST for a simple reflowing epub with no pictures. Our quotes are based on project specifications like word count, number of images, footnotes and tables. This is the cost of conversion only and doesn't include cover design, etc.

Please use our Quote Request Form to send us the details we need to give you a FREE Project Scope and Quote!

Aside from our great prices, one thing that makes us different is that we are customer-service oriented and quality controlled in this industry of automated, DIY and bulk services. This is assisted self-publishing, and there are a lot of sharks out there, but we are People You Can Trust.

We are a boutique book and ebook design firm, something completely different to what you may have encountered elsewhere. You will enjoy the one-to-one contact with your designer, which will feel like working with a freelancer, but with all the stability of working with a business not a one-man-band. Our ebook conversion process is not an afterthought nor is it automated. Our system is efficient, but it allows for the proper time, care and flexibility to create excellent ebooks that work on major devices and function well for your customer, the reader.

Ebook distribution costs

Our ebook distribution services start at $199+GST and we can assist you to get your ebook online. We have accounts and can distribute ebooks directly to Apple, Amazon, GooglePlay, Kobo, Barnes&Noble Nook, Overdrive and EBSCO. See our Australian ebook aggregator page for details.

We are an Australian ebook aggregator—this means we distribute directly to ebook vendors for you. Although we can distribute print and ebooks for you, we acknowledge that this is not the best path for all kinds of authors. To that end, we also offer publishing consultation to help you go direct to vendors or find an aggregator that offers broader distribution than we can. We are with you all the way in this publishing journey and want to find what is best for you.

For more details on how our aggregation services work, please visit the distribution page.

Other Fees and Charges

As mentioned previously we offer entire project management, not a website sales funnel or a do-it-yourself system of ebook publication. Therefore our quote to you will not only include the ebook conversion and distribution costs mentioned above. It may also include any of the following depending on your needs and preferences:


Please be aware that if you make content changes after the project commences we will charge to do these at our hourly rate.

If your project schedule or scope changes during the project the deadline(s) and quote(s) will be affected.

Fair Pricing

We are confident that our prices are excellent for the customer service and quality of work that we deliver. If you are looking for a team that can assist you at each stage, with phone calls and emails, drafts to check and opportunities to make corrections and changes, all with the end reader in mind, look no further than Australian eBook Publisher.

We are People You Can Trust.
