New York Times bestselling series

It has been a pleasure working with Kevin Anderson and his team of talented writers and editors—I highly recommend them. Having collaborated together on over a dozen manuscripts since 2015, including the original Five Nights at Freddy’s series, I can attest to their responsiveness, dedication to excellence, and commitment to keeping their clients happy. The ability to work with multiple gifted writers concurrently has been especially valuable to me.

I really enjoy working with Kevin Anderson & Associates. They have a great team of writers and are very collaborative, responsive, and professional. Kevin’s team has been quick to provide a range of top-quality writers who they feel are ideal for the novels we want to have written. I am currently working with Kira Breed-Wrisley, a great writer and listener, and I have been so comfortable working with her.

Working with Kevin Anderson & Associates is a great experience. Having worked together on multiple books over the years, they’ve proven themselves to be reliable, responsive, and talented.

Do I Need an Illustrator Before I Submit to Agents and/or Publishers?

No, in fact many publishers prefer that you don’t.

Why Are Your YA Prices the Same as Your Prices for Other Full-Length Manuscripts?

The length and complexity of YA novels are essentially the same as that of any other novel, so they are priced accordingly.
