Estimating our fee is easy. The easiest way to calculate your own quote is as follows: locate the right fee bracket for your manuscript. For example, if your manuscript has 189 pages, it falls under the “Up to 200 pages” bracket. Start by multiplying the number of pages in your manuscript by the right fee per page for the bracket. In our example, 189 x 2.10. Our fee to assess 189 pages will then be £396.90. If you haven’t used our services before, we will apply a 10% discount to our fee.

Or… just email your manuscript via attachment to hello@danielgoldsmith.co.uk for an accurate, no obligation quote.
