Publishing & Book Production

Griffoun Press                *                Summer Snow Scriptorium                 *                   Pouty Poppet Press

The Griffoun Society's own dedicated publishing operation, Griffoun Press, was established in 1986 to make available presentation copies of monographs, essays, homilies, and poetry read aloud at club functions.  Xiomara Roma is the current publisher, replacing Christi Broughton, who has now retired.  Griffoun Press has never published books; only pamphlets, fascicles, and parchments suitable for framing. However, under Christi's administration, Griffoun Press has now expanded into book design and production, as well as e-book publishing.  Our production imprints are Summer Snow Scriptorium and Pouty Poppet Press.   

Pouty Poppet Press, incidentally, is in the process of being transferred to Archer Trent, Publisher, which in future will be publishing many, if not all, the books produced by Griffoun Society.

We also support the publishing and book-production endeavors of Dusky Nightshade of New Braunfels, Texas, and of the Little Heathens' Underground Tract Society and Free Press, founded by her in 2009.  

All our books are available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other online booksellers, as well as many neighborhood bookstores.

Assistance to Aspiring or Self-Publishing Authors

The editorial staff at Griffoun Press now offers, at rates far below industry norms,  a full range of editorial services to self-publishing authors, including proofreading, typing, layout and design, illustration, file conversion, and even ghost-writing.  Indeed, there is no task related to print publishing or ePublishing that we cannot handle with confidence.  If you've already started and you're stumped or if you have been reluctant to start because you are intimidated by the seeming complexity of the process, then why not let us put our expertise to work for you?   See our price list below.

Leave us a message on the Contact Us page, and someone will be in touch with you.

Editorial Services

Editing (including proofreading, suggestions for rewriting short passages as necessary, book layout and design, pagination, formatting, and file conversion) $10/1000 words

Proofing for typos, spelling, and grammar only (that is to say, not for style) $1/1000 words

Ghost Writing $1/word – The average length of novels, memoirs, and autobiographies is between 60,000 and 85,000 words.  We should probably be reluctant to take on a project much larger than that.  A 5% advance based on estimated length is required; then incremental payments are due as the manuscript is completed in segments.  Polishing and partial rewrites will be done last (no additional charge).  Your ghost writer will remain completely invisible; you can take all the credit for the work and all the royalties.  Or in those rare instances where we see huge commercial possibilities, we might be induced to accept a lower fee in exchange for a share of the royalties and partial credit for authorship.

Art Services

Book Illustrations in pencil $75 for the first; $50 for each additional sketch (plus expenses agreed to in advance, such as travel, studio fees, modeling fees, costumes, etc.); artwork to be delivered electronically via internet

Page Decorations (inanimate objects only) $35 each delivered electronically (minimum of 8 drawings)

NOTE: Use of artwork is restricted to book or magazine illustration and for the purpose of promoting that title for which the illustration was created.  Any other use is an egregious violation of copyright and strictly forbidden.

Cover Design (front, back and spine) $175 (plus any agreed upon expenses, such as travel, modeling fees, image licensing) delivered electronically

Typing $1/page delivered electronically; fee based on the following specs: (1” borders, double-spaced, Times New Roman 12 pt. with header and page numbers)
