Standard Pricing for Custom Static Web Design

  • Home Page only $400 
  • Additional Pages $100 each


Hosting Fee

$180 initial rate for one year (monthly rate of $15), payable when the work begins. Subsequent invoices will be billed annually (on the anniversary date when the site goes "live"), at the same rate or mutually agreed upon increase. Sorry, no refunds if you decide to relocate your site.


Website Content

  • Website content for Fruitbearer authors will be provided jointly by Fruitbearer Publishing and the author.
  • Non-Fruitbearer authors will need to provide FWS with text content as well as unique graphics (author photo, book cover, logo, etc.).
  • We'll work together to get the wording just right (this includes meta tags to improve search engine hits).
  • Custom web graphics and color scheme are included in the price of the web design package.


Video and Animation

Flash video and YouTube can be used in the basic package. Fee for setup will be determined by complexity.


Additions and Editing

  • The beauty of this arrangement is that, after initial setup, authors will be given access so they can update the content on their own.
  • If the client prefers for Fruitbearer to handle additions, corrections, or other changes after the initial setup, the client will be billed as follows: Pay-as-you-go maintenance is charged at an hourly rate of $65. Unlike most web development companies, we only charge per quota (capped every 15 minutes). For example, if a project takes 15 minutes or less, the cost would be $17; between 15-30 minutes would cost $33; 30-45 minutes = $22, and a full hour $65.


 Custom Logo Design

  • Custom logo design is $200-$1200, depending on complexity.



  • Fruitbearer authors' books will be linked to the Fruitbearer online store at no charge.
  • If a non-Fruitbearer author has a listing with Amazon or other online venue, a link for sales can be provided at no charge.
  • If a FWS client desires a shopping cart of their own, we can set it up for you for an additional fee based on our hourly rate. Here is our monthly pricing schedule for eShops that are not affiliated with Fruitbearer Publishing:
