BOOK SERVICES

I can help you with your book project at whatever point in the process you’re at, whether it’s consulting, outlining, writing, editing or publishing! I offer highly competitive rates based on national averages for my work and can guarantee a payment plan that will work for any or all of the following services:

 

CONSULTATION/PLANNING/OUTLINING

 

If you’ve got an idea, I can help you take the first steps to getting it on paper working with your individual writing habits and schedule. I will help you not only flush out your ideas, but also compare them to related works in the field and help you set a schedule for completion. I can also get you over that dreaded writer's block!

 

WRITING/CO-WRITING/GHOSTWRITING

 

Whether it’s fiction, an autobiography, guide, resource manual, cookbook or any other piece of nonfiction, I can help you get it finished. I work with you every step of the way from outlining to print and everything in between. We'll set a detailed calendar of deadlines and a system to get your book done the way you want it quickly and efficiently.

 

EDITING/COPY-EDITING

 

I am fully trained in both Associated Press and Chicago Manual Style and can help you put the final touches on your completed manuscript to get it ready for pitching or publishing.

 

SEEKING AN AGENT/PUBLISHER

 

I will work with you to generate both the all-important query letter and a professional pitch package, including a cover letter, summary, bio, detailed outline of the book, sample chapters, comparative titles, market and industry research, other potential uses and key points to attract an agent, a publisher and an audience.

 

PUBLISHING

 

If you decide to self-publish, I can work you through the process from design and finding a competitive printer to obtaining proper licenses and marketing and promoting your book. If you work with a publisher, I can work as a liaison between the parties to help with promotion, distribution, signing opportunities, maintaining an online presence, etc.

 

Pricing for each service varies on a per project basis.
