Writing Books/im interested in publishing a book im writing.


would know the costs and best publishing house to use in publishing 300 pages of fictional matterial. might be a good sell. i might also require an editor at some stage. thanks.


You'll need to be clearer.  If you're talking about CHOOSING a publisher, then you're talking about subsidy publishing.  (Rather than submitting your material to a conventional publisher, and having them choose to publish you or not.)

Subsidy publishers vary widely in their costs, and what you get for that.  I do not have any sort of comparison chart for you, but here's one of the best I've seen online:

As for which is best (not counting costs), I think they're all pretty much the same.  None of them will do anything for you in the way of promotions, but then, major publishing houses don't, really, either.

Hope that's helpful.
