As much as I hate doing this kind of thing, following a conversation with my accountant, I have been advised to increase some of my prices. Changes apply from 1st April 2022.
Here is a summary of the changes (if the service isn’t mentioned in the list below, the price isn’t increasing):
Deposits for editing and proofreading slots are increasing from £20 to £30
My editing fee is increasing from £4 per 1,000 words to £5 per 1,000 words
My proofreading fee is increasing from £2 per 1,000 words to £3 per 1,000 words
I’m sure you will agree these prices are still very competitive and I hope you will continue working with me.
Bear in mind that all these prices are in British pounds, as I’m in the UK. This, however, does NOT mean I only deal with UK clients – far from it. But I quote in British pounds since I invoice in British pounds. Exchange rates will be estimated at time of payment, and dependent on payment method.
“Lucy took six unimpressive blurbs for my books, and interjected them with new life. When she finished, I had more dramatic words, questions for the reader, and an attention grabbing headline for each. I was delighted. I never would have gotten to blurbs I like as well as these on my own.” S. R. Cronin, author of the 46. Ascending collection of speculative fiction novels.
As much as I hate doing this kind of thing, due to rises in the cost of living and so on, some of my prices will be increasing slightly from 1st February 2018. Here is a summary of the changes (if the service isn’t mentioned in the list below, the price isn’t increasing):
Cover reveals are increasing from £25 to £26.
Release blitzes are increasing from £25 to £26, with the review option add-on increasing from £5 to £6.
Blog tours are increasing from:
One week – £30 to £32.
Two weeks – £50 to £52.
Three weeks – £70 to £72.
Four weeks – £90 to £92.
Bear in mind that all these prices are in British pounds, as I’m in the UK. This, however, does NOT mean I only deal with UK clients – far from it. But I quote in British pounds since I invoice in British pounds – PayPal and their exchange rates will do the rest.
Happy New Year to you all! Here’s to a fabulous 2018 for all of us.
I’m just stopping by quickly to let you know that, in a great start to the year, WMS has been nominated in the Preditors and Editors Awards for Promotional Firms, Sites and Resources. I’m up against some really tough competition, so every vote counts! It’ll just take you a couple of seconds. I’d really appreciate it. Thank you.
“Lucy did a fantastic job organising my blog tour. She offered helpful guidance and invaluable advice, and was most patient with my many questions. I feel much more confident about book marketing now, thanks to her sound input and calming presence. She connected me with bloggers and other authors I never imagined I would cross paths with personally. I would not hesitate to recommend Lucy’s expert services, and very much look forward to working with her again.” JL Peridot

To celebrate Cyber Monday, Writer Marketing Services is offering a whopping 20% off blog tours! You don’t have to take the tour right away, you can “bank” it and book it when you have a new release to promote. You just have to fill in the form on Cyber Monday and have paid the balance by the 4th December to qualify for the discount.
This is just a quick note that from the 2nd November, prices for some services will increase, to keep in line with inflation and the industry standard. The details are as follows:
Release blitzes to increase from £20 to £25 (£30 if reviews are also requested)
Cover reveals to increase from £20 to £25
Blog tour packages will have an extra £10 added. For example, one week tour, which was £20, will be £30, and so on
Any services booked and paid for before then (even if they’re not actioned before the 2nd November) will still be available at the previous prices. So if you have some new releases coming up that you would like to promote, now’s a good time to get these packages booked in order to save yourself some money.
Wow – doesn’t time fly? A cliché, but so true. This month signals four years of Writer Marketing Services!
To celebrate, I’m offering a 20% discount on any blog tour* purchased this month. That is, paid for. You don’t have to take the tour this month, you don’t even have to book it yet, if you don’t have a release in the pipeline, or you’re waiting on release dates for something. Just purchase and pay for your chosen length of blog tour by the 28th February, and if you don’t want to book it right away, I’ll bank it for you and you can take it whenever you like.
Interested? Then head here and check out the packages, FAQs, etc, then fill in the sign up form when you’re ready. I’m expecting a lot of takers on this special offer, so please give me a few days to contact you after you’ve filled in the form. If you don’t hear from me by the end of February, don’t panic, the time up details come through to me with timestamps, so I’ll know that you signed up in time, even if I don’t manage to contact you in time. Chances are I will, but it just depends how many people are up for bagging a bargain!
*Please note, a maximum of two blog tours per customer can be purchased using this special offer.
