The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it.

Psalm 68:11

Your book is important to us.  It is a reflection of you and the publisher.

Fiesta Publishing Editing Services

Publications, Grant Proposals and College Papers

This service offers faculty, graduate students and undergraduate students an outside opinion in order to improve the content, grammar, and organization of their proposal, publication, thesis paper or term paper.


Editing Fees

Each job will be quoted individually, as each paper/publication requires different edits and comments depending on the number of pages and how much work is required. The reviewer will work with the client directly regarding the quote and invoicing (50% deposit/50% upon completion). 

In order to provide a fair quote, the requestor needs to submit the number of words and the first 5 pages of the dissertation or paper for consideration. A Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) is available upon request. Plan on $0.02 to $0.03 a word. A 15 page proposal will cost between $150-$225 (based on 500 words per page).

Resume and Cover Letter Services

When applying to any company, an applicant’s first impression is made by their cover letter and resume. Fiesta Publishing has been assisting clients with barriers to employment, along with friends and family for over 20 years with cover letter and resume writing assistance.

Resume

There are 2 types of resumes – Chronological and Functional.

The client’s work history, skill sets and the job posting requirements, will determine the type of resume that is needed. Time is spent via telephone and/or email to create a personalized resume for each client.

Cover Letter

A cover letter gives the reviewer a high level description of the applicant’s qualifications and personal characteristics. This is the tool that should entice the reviewer to want to know more about the applicant.

Resume and Cover Letter Fees

  • Existing resume that needs more information and/or updating – $50 per resume
  • Create a resume for first time applications – $100
  • Cover Letter – $25

Grant Writing and Proposal Submission

With over 20 years of grant writing and proposal submission experience, Fiesta Publishing can assist with your writing and submission needs.

Grant Writing

Grant writing is very competitive as federal, state and foundation funds are limited. On average only 15% of all federal proposals submitted are funded. A well thought out proposal has a better chance of being considered for an award, so preparation is key. 

Each sponsor requires different information to be included in the proposal. Services include:

  • Consultation and Review of the Funding Announcement
  • Assistance Writing a Clear and Concise Proposal

Proposal Submission

To ensure that a proposal is not returned without review following the sponsor formatting and submission guidelines is imperative. Fiesta Publishing is knowledgeable in most federal agency submission processes, but specialize in National Science Foundation (NSF), Department of Defense (all branches – DARPA, ARO, ARL, AFOSR and ONR) and Department of Energy (EERE and ARPAe) proposals. 

Each sponsor requires different information to be included in the proposal. Services include:

  • Drafting/Creating Required Documents:
    • Budget and Budget Justification Preparation
    • Current and Pending 
    • Biographical Sketch (BioSketch)
  • Provide guidance for agency specific documents, such as project summary, project description, references, data management plans
  • Uploading Documents into Fastlane, research.gov, grants.gov and grants.gov Workspace
  • Generating a complete proposal from the sponsor portal
  • Creating an NSF ID for new Principal Investigators (PI, Co-PI)
  • Creating a company portfolio for NSF proposals 
  • Project Management of the award to ensure sponsor guidelines and company milestones are accomplished (this is a separate fee)

Grant Writing and Proposal Submission Fees

Fees for grant writing and proposal submission are quoted based on the requirements of the grant. 

  • Grant writing fees average $50/hour
  • Proposal Submission fees average $50/hour
  • Project management fees average $50/hour

Manuscript Review

This service offers the author an outside opinion on the content to help improve the manuscript before sending it to a publisher. This is not grammatical editing. The reviewer offers suggestions to improve the content and organization of the manuscript.

The publisher reserves the right to decline any manuscript submitted for review to maintain the standard of excellence for which the company was founded and resurrected.

The manuscript review allows Fiesta Publishing to provide an estimate to the author for anticipated costs based on the services listed below.
