The editor may also suggest a developmental edit of your manuscript. This is at an additional cost and will be advised prior to any payment being taken.
You are allowed up to 20 images in any book. Any images beyond this will be charged in blocks of ten which are £49 per block. This will be charged both for Paperback and Kindle version as the formats differ.
