I have worked with Kevin many times over the years for my memoir, book proposal, and articles. With each interaction, Kevin and his team provided excellent editorial services. His firm offers a diverse pool of editors to choose from, which enabled me to hone the type of service I was looking for. Each editor was concise and insightful, giving me constructive notes that really allowed me to take my work to the next level. I felt that they were in for the long haul because Kevin was always there for me when I had follow up questions. A great experience across the board.

In addition to delivering excellent material in a timely manner, I especially appreciate their ability to adapt to demanding timelines and nonstandard processes. They are truly a classy organization that takes great pride in taking care of their clients. It’s rare to find such professionalism in a writing service. On one particularly demanding project, they really went above and beyond to produce an excellent manuscript within a two-month window—the way he and the organization handled the process was prompt, professional.

What's Included in the Consultation Process?

Our consultants are available to discuss all aspects of your project with you, including planning, preparation, concept generation, organization, development, style, tone, writing, editing, formatting, publishing, and more!

Our consulting process is flexible and customizable to your needs and preferences. Consultation sessions generally take place by phone or video call, but can also include in-person meetings if necessary or just written feedback.

Once you’re happy with the content of your book, we can help you determine which publishing options work best for you and make your published book a reality!

Can I Work with the Same Consultant the Entire Time I’m Writing My Book?

Absolutely. In general, we strive for continuity when matching consultants with clients. It is also possible to have the same consultant on multiple projects, which helps to build positive working relationships and foster consistency within your body of writing. Of course, if for any reason you would prefer to work with a different consultant, we’re happy to assign a new one.

Will a Reviewer Implement the Changes They’ve Suggested, or Will I Have to Do It Myself?

It all depends on what review and consultation services you’ve ordered. We can provide you with comments and suggestions that you choose to implement yourself, or we can make the edits to the content for you. Our goal is to support you to produce the best possible content through customer service that exceeds your expectations.

Can You Help Me with the Publishing and Marketing for My Book?

We know that the publishing industry can be daunting, especially for first-time authors, so we offer consultation and comprehensive support for traditional, hybrid, and self-publishing outlets. Most of our all-inclusive ghostwriting packages include an original and customized query letter or book proposal free of charge. This invaluable marketing tool will be used to promote your book to literary agents and publishers. Not sure how to find a reputable literary agent? We’ve got you covered—we’ll provide you with a list of genre-appropriate agents to whom you can send your query letter or proposal!
