Hi, I’m George Verongos. I’m here to help you publish your book project :)
After 10 years of teaching secondary English and Creative Writing, I started Literary Services in 2010 to help authors navigate the waters of publishing. I do this by providing all types of editing, in-depth comments and notes, layout and formatting, and original custom covers, as well as guidance and general consulting.
Here are some of the books I have worked on; some are bestsellers or by award-winning authors.
“The Unknown Other and the Existential Proposition of Alien Contact” by Lester Velez co-founder of OPUS
“UFO Briefing Book: A Guide to Congressional Oversight of the UAP Phenomenon” by James Lough
“Clairvoyage” by Stephanie Milanowski
“Devils Den: The Reckoning” by Terry Lovelace
“Incident At Devils Den—A True Story” by Terry Lovelace
“Initiated: UAP, Dreams, Depression, Delusions, Shadow People, Psychosis, Sleep Paralysis, and Pandemics” by Matthew Roberts
“Dirty Little Secret” by Erin Montgomery
“Timeless Trinity” by Dr. Bruce Olav Solheim
“Anzar: The Progenitor” by Dr. Bruce Olav Solheim
SNARC comics by Dr. Bruce Olav Solheim
“What to Expect in Therapy” by Dan Hanks
“Productivity is for Robots” by Corey McComb
And I edited the award-winning novel titled “Hooked” but retitled as “The Sound of Violet” by Allen Wolf, which is now an independent film.
I provide authors and publishers with the services and support they need for the next steps to publication. Those services include editing, both developmental and substantive, proofreading, ghostwriting, content design and layout, cover creation, and formatting for several self-publishing formats.
I’m here to help. I know that writing a book is a monumental task that requires support and insight, and that is what I provide for you. I will always work with you to make sure you are satisfied with my services and beyond excited about the completion of your new project.
Price includes as many editing passes as you need to allow you the flexibility of making changes to the manuscript without paying for extra editing, and I also include a final proofread after the content editing is complete to ensure your manuscript is perfect, which saves you money on hiring a proofreader.
Editing: 3¢ per word includes developmental editing, deep line editing, final proofreading, layout, formatting, deliverable as ready-to-upload files.
Formatting only: (no editing) for print & eBooks is $3.00 per formatted page.
Custom original covers: (paperback, hardback, and eBook) $500 ($300 for editing clients).
Clients working through Upwork are responsible for the Upwork project fees, see Upwork for exact fee amounts.
I look forward to hearing from you.
