 I don't know what you're asking -- are you talking about self-publishing? Trade publishing? There's no answer for either, honestly, as every step depends entirely on a host of factors.

If it's traditional publishing, you should be getting paid, not paying anyone. For self-publishing, the answer varies, but if it's more than $2,000 you're doing it wrong. (With notable exceptions. I know a seven-figure author who invested tens of thousands of dollars in marketing, but that's highly, highly unusual.) 

 

Also, I suggest moving this to AQ - Connect The Guppy Pond.
