Your Vision, Your Voice
When I work on your project, I learn as much as I can about you, your goals, and your ideal audience. I help you
see your content from different perspectives
refine your message
bridge communication gaps
find your voice
build on your success
Ghostwriting and Book Collaboration
70% of nonfiction books published in the U.S. are ghostwritten because the author’s time and attention are focused on doing what they’re writing about, not on writing. (1) For them, hiring a professional writer makes business sense. But the thought of having someone else write your book can be scary.
When we work together, I
speak your language
reflect your passion
and project your voice
because your book is you, and your success is my success.
$17,000-38,000 for a full-length nonfiction book
Manuscript Evaluations and editing
The right editor will take your manuscript from good to great and serve as a long-term partner in your success.
When I evaluate and edit your manuscript, I
respect your effort
empathize with your reader
work in your long-term best interest
There are three categories of editing (developmental, mechanical, and proofreading), but what you need may not fit neatly into one or another, so I offer four options to balance your goals and budget.
Book Proposal Writing and Query Letter Reviews
If you identify first as a writer or aspire to have extended reach, working with a literary agent and pursuing a traditional publishing contract can help you reach your goals, but
“At any given time, 500,000 proposals and manuscripts circulate across the United States.” (2)
40% of queries are rejected for being poorly written or unprofessional. (3)
Many agents and publishers do not accept unsolicited queries but do consider those recommended by proven industry professionals.
I work with agents and publishers, so I know what it takes to get them to notice you.
