Jeff James, VP, Publisher, HarperCollins Leadership

Authors include Rachel Hollis, John C. Maxwell, and self-made billionaire, 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.”

Norman Ollestad, Author of Crazy for the Storm

New York Times bestselling author, 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.”

Senior Acquisitions Editor with HarperCollins

“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.”

Ken Rusk

Ken Rusk, Author of Blue Collar Cash (HarperCollins Dey Street)

Entrepreneur, mentor, and life coach

“Kevin Anderson & Assoc. 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.”

Sara Azari

Sara Azari, Criminal Defense Attorney and Media Personality

Author of Unprecedented: Crimes of the Trump Administration (Potomac)

“I was referred to Kevin Anderson & Associates by Ken Gillett at Target Marketing, who ran Ray Dalio’s and Hillary Clinton’s book marketing campaigns—among many other bestselling books. While KAA was highly recommended to provide A to Z services to authors, they have far surpassed the high bar I set for professionals I choose to work with. KAA is fully staffed with reputable professionals who attend to the needs of their clients.

From my initial contact with Kevin through the interviewing process with writers, editors, and other staff members, KAA has provided me with prompt responses to questions and concerns, flexibility in their response to my needs, and most importantly they’ve presented me with the highest caliber of professionals with whom I have formed a team for my project. My project is time sensitive and requires extreme attention to detail. KAA has been mindful of these aspects by responding accordingly. Within weeks of working with KAA, I was able to build a solid proposal and sample chapters and have landed a top literary agent (Jill Marsal) through their introduction and attract the interest of several publishers.

What is unique about KAA is its ability to tailor and customize their services to the needs of each author. I was a virgin author and new to the world of book writing. KAA has provided me with A to Z knowledge and expertise and provided me with professionals who were best suited for my project. I highly recommend KAA to anyone who is interested in publishing a book, fiction or nonfiction, first-timer or life-timer. Based on my level of confidence and satisfaction, I have and will continue to refer KAA to friends and colleagues. I can wholeheartedly say that I would be lost with KAA’s assistance and services. Thank you Kevin and crew! Keep up the great work!”

In addition to her work as an American criminal defense attorney, Sara is a frequent guest commentator, analyst, and panelist for a number of media outlets and television programs, including CNN Network, ABC News, Good Morning America, Good Day LA, among others.

Brent Filson, Author and Playwright

“I am an award-winning author who has published 23 books, many with major publishers. During the past few years, I have been struggling with developing both a novel and a mass-market business book. Kevin Anderson’s team of professional editors and publishing consultants were quick to respond and have made all the difference. My novel editor’s intelligent and rigorous attention to detail have opened for me a clear path to writing a beautiful novel. And Kevin himself was hands-on and incredibly informative about how to shape my business book proposal and effectively target agents and publishers. They have not only helped me with a couple of books, but with my career!”

Heather Zumarraga, CNBC, Fox News, and Fox Business Financial Analyst

Author of The Man’s Guide to Corporate Culture (HarperCollins, 2021)

“I am an established financial services professional and media personality, but I had never written a book and had limited knowledge about the publishing industry. When HarperCollins signed me to a book deal (“The Man’s Guide to Corporate Culture”), I had no idea how to go about writing a book…until I met Kevin Anderson and his incredible firm. Their consulting and editing services were first rate. Kevin himself was my consultant and my editors included a widely published author and a former acquisitions editor at Simon & Schuster. Their team is loaded with talent and publishing industry professionals and Kevin is an expert in the industry and has senior level contacts at the major publishers — he clearly knows how the process works from the inside. Kevin’s invaluable advice through the entire process is perfect new authors who are established in their careers, but not yet as authors. Kevin Anderson & Associates will kick start your writing process and get you through the mental roadblocks along the way. They have the tools and knowledge to make your writing a successful and fun process. Kevin Anderson helped transform my book from good to great! I couldn’t have done it without them.”


Bob Proctor and LifeSuccess

I cannot recommend them enough.”

Ghostwriter, Editor, HarperCollins, Sara Kendrick

Sara Kendrick, Senior Acquisitions Editor at HarperCollins Leadership

“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.”

Dr. Brandon Phillips, Author of When I Wished Upon a Star (Thomas Nelson/HarperCollins)

“As a first-time author, there is more to learn than one would suspect. My daughter, who has worked for my consulting firm for several years, was given the task of putting a plan together for me, which included researching several firms that could assist me. She talked to several editors and strongly recommended Kevin Anderson’s firm. Of all the right moves I made, selecting Kevin and his associates was the most critical and rewarding. They combined great advice with deep experience and timely service that made the process a lot easier than it could have been. Thanks to them for a wonderful partnership!”
