What You’ll Get

  • A line-edited manuscript formatted for print and various forms of ebooks. (Note: The manuscript must be professionally edited before submission. However, as a separate project you may hire Unexpected Paths to do a developmental edit.)
  • A professionally designed cover ready for upload. (You will be asked for cover suggestions, and we will provide you samples to comment on; however, Unexpected Paths will have the final say on the cover.)
  • You will retain the rights to your work; however, for the initial publication, Unexpected Paths will be listed as the publisher.
  • If you choose for Unexpected Paths to upload your manuscript, for one year from the date of publication, Unexpected Paths will receive 5% of your royalties. If you opt to receive the formatted manuscript and print-ready cover, you will be charged a flat fee of $500 (U.S.).
