Titanium services are only available to Gutenberg-approved authors
Gutenberg-approved authors may choose to purchase an ISBN through Gutenberg Author Services, which will officially brand the selected novels with the Gutenberg Authorhouse name. The cost per book per format is $150.00 (For example, if you wanted to publish in e-book and paperback formats, those two formats would require two separate legal ISBNs, for a total of $300.00)
Gutenberg Author Profiles
Gutenberg-approved authors may choose to feature their profiles and their published works on the Gutenberg webpages. We charge $50.00/year in digital upkeep and maintenance fees, and there are no other expenses associated with this plan. Price per author, not per book. No additional charges for second novels, third novels, etc. The plan includes novel indexing, author profiling, and featured contributor status. (NOTE: This does NOT require a Gutenberg ISBN. Authors CAN choose to publish with other publishing houses. Their work will still be available at the Gutenberg Authorhouse)
These plans are for writers who can afford to commit real funding towards building an authoritative public profile, and who are serious about getting their work up to perform at its very highest level. Gold-level editing will require a lot of work and corrections on the part of the writer and might require additional rounds of editing. Gold-level marketing will require the author to be available for interviews and other public events.
Comprehensive editing includes conceptual feedback, which incorporates plot, story progression, character development, background context, content arrangement and presentation, layout, format, etc., and also includes all elements of all lesser editing plans. Author receives recommendations booklet included with the text. Priced at $0.0275 per word.
