Client Testimonials

Jeff James, HarperCollins

VP & Publisher. Authors include Rachel Hollis, John C. Maxwell, and Tilman Fertitta

“Pairing an author with the right ghostwriter is inherently fraught with built-in challenges, and these challenges cause risk for both the publisher and the author. Kevin Anderson & Associates reduces those risks by providing a layer of expertise and oversight on the entire process of selecting, coordinating, and managing the contract writing process. The end result is a better book because the right ghostwriter was chosen, the project was managed efficiently, and editorial quality was greatly increased. At HarperCollins Leadership we look forward to working with Kevin and his extensive team of writers and editors on another successful project as soon as possible.”

New York Times bestselling author of Crazy for the Storm–over 100,000 copies sold

“I have worked with Kevin many times over the years for my memoir, fiction, 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 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 particularly appreciated the editors’ ability to point out where I could strengthen my story while not feeling like they were trying to change my story—this is a delicate balance that only the best editors know how to do. 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.”

“Working with Kevin Anderson & Associates and their team of bestselling ghostwriters has been a great experience all around. 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. They have also referred some great authors to us that we ended up signing deals with. I strongly recommend their service to any author, agent, or publisher.”

Writing this book would simply not be possible without their help, and now my message and business lessons have been transformed into a beautifully written manuscript that I’m proud to call my own. Every step of the process has been a pleasure, from the group book-planning and strategy sessions (conducted onsite, in the comfort of my home in Florida), through writing the book and pitching it to agents and publishers. Thank you!”

“Kevin Anderson & Associates provided the guidance I needed in the publishing business. Kevin’s team helped me take all of my ideas and put them into what Entertainment Weekly called one of the “15 juiciest political books to come in 2018”. If you’re interested in becoming an author, Kevin Anderson & Associates can make your dream become a reality. It is a full-service firm that pays attention to the details and will help make your book a bestseller.”

Ken Rusk

Ken Rusk

Author of Blue Collar Cash (HarperCollins/Dey Street)

“Kevin Anderson & Associates made my dream of becoming a published author a reality. When I first reached out to them, I knew nothing about the publishing business or how to write a book. A year later, I have a well-written book that perfectly captures my message and voice, I’m represented by the #1 nonfiction agent in the country, and I’ve signed a six-figure book deal with HarperCollins. I have no doubt that their strategic planning, world-class ghostwriters (I highly recommend Mary!), and ongoing consultation and support are what led to me becoming a published author. KAA’s industry knowledge and insider connections were incredibly valuable in ensuring I had the best team for long-term success. KAA’s team, and very often Kevin himself, were truly my partners and guided me through every step—planning the book, structuring the chapters, positioning the book to my target reader, ensuring the writing was publishable, connecting me directly with the top literary agents in the country, introducing me to the best PR agents and marketers, and finally helping me choose between multiple offers from Big 5 publishers. They are the best in the business and really take care of you–I can’t recommend them highly enough.”

Jackson Tucker, Macmillan

Publisher’s Representative at Macmillan Learning

“Kevin Anderson & Associates gives aspiring writers the tools they need–through ghostwriting, editing, and proofreading–to get their book ready for a literary agent or publisher.”

National-bestselling author of Your Were Born Rich and contributor to The Secret

“LifeSuccess has had the pleasure of working with Kevin and his team since early 2008. I must say that we’ve been very impressed with their professionalism and excellent editing services. Several of our authors have gone out of their way to express how much they’ve appreciated their professional advice and helpful insights. They have also been readily available to us whenever we’ve needed them in a crunch. I cannot recommend them enough.”

Ghostwriter, Editor, HarperCollins, Sara Kendrick

Sara Kendrick, HarperCollins

Senior Acquisitions Editor 

“Very impressed with Kevin Anderson & Associates’ ghostwriting and editing services. Not only have they taken great care of our authors, but they’re always willing to go the extra mile to ensure the manuscript is exceptional and that the author is happy. Always responsive and responsible, this team is clearly passionate about writing books and pleasing their clients. In one case, we needed 9 different business books developed within a short time frame. Kevin’s team not only took on the challenge enthusiastically, but delivered what we needed and then some. Even when one of their writers became ill, they were able to immediately replace them with a new one and carry on with the project — which is very reassuring as a publisher. They are talented, flexible, and loaded with industry pros who know what it takes to write a powerful book. Great source for any publisher or agent who wants a dependable and professional service.”
