Author Alterations & Corrections Service – Add-On

Even after a professional edit, there may still be some errors in your work that you might have overlooked. To ensure that your book comes out the way you envisioned it, Xlibris offers the Author Alterations & Corrections add-on service.

Any changes or edits to your text while your book is still in production, prior to the approval of the final galley proof, is considered an Author Alteration. Some examples are typos and missing words. If you feel like your manuscript needs an overhaul, our revision services for black and white and full-color books may be more suited for you.

    Black & White Publishing service features and specifications:
  • Base fee of $25 for each round of corrections to your book’s interior layout or text, plus $2 per alteration
  • Base fee of $25 for each round of corrections to your book’s cover
  • Includes additional galley or cover proof (whichever is appropriate)
  • Clear instructions and information included with galley proof delivery
  • Alteration of production files and final printing files to reflect changes
    Full-Color Publishing service features and specifications:
  • Base fee of $50 for each round of corrections to your book’s interior layout or text or cover
  • Each additional correction within a round of corrections costs an additional $2
  • Includes additional galley or cover proof (whichever is appropriate)
  • Clear instructions and information included with galley proof delivery
  • Ability to make text edits, color and font changes, and image and design alterations
  • Alteration of production files and final printing files to reflect changes

Note:
Because your book exists electronically, you can change or update your content even after it has been published. So if new information comes to light or details change, you can make sure that your work is kept up-to-date. Corrections requested after publication are classified as post-publication revision services. They are available for a fee of $249 for black & white books and $349 for full-color books when you submit a manuscript that has already been updated with your revisions. Different fees may apply if you send us a list of your revisions and have our design team implement them in your book. Please consult your Author Services Representative first before ordering.
