Book creation support

Everyone has a book in them. The question is, can you get it out of you in a way that makes people want to read it? Consider the difference professional help could make with your editing, proof reading, ghost writing, Kindle formatting and other non-fiction book needs.

Have you already written a book that needs a keen pair of professional eyes for proof reading or developmental editing support? Need help getting started on a book you’ve dreamed about writing but never got done? Want to get your completed book set up as a Kindle Edition? You’ve come to the right place.

Proofreading & editing

Enjoy flexible editing services. Simple proof reading covers typos, grammatical errors, punctuation issues, and poor word choices. Chapters can be delivered one at a time for your review and comment. If you prefer, I can deliver the entire book proof when done. Turn-around time is usually 30-90 days, depending on the length of the book and the process you prefer.

Developmental editing is more of a marketing role. This is ideal for business leaders seeking to build credibility and reach. We’ll talk about what your goals are with the book and determine your ideal audience. Together, we’ll decide the best way to present your information to achieve your stated objectives. The process dives deeper, pointing out inconsistencies, examining the structure of the book, offering suggestions to enhance the book by eliminating or adding content, helping to organize the book effectively and ensuring content speaks to your intended reader.

Ghost writing

If you’ve always wanted to be a published author but have struggled with putting a book together, you’ll smile when you discover how easy it can be. Enjoy an unusual book ghost writing process that makes it fun and simple for you to get it all out there. Your time commitment is about 20 minutes a week for brief interviews plus additional time reviewing chapters written for you. In about 3 months, you’ll have a book that captures your voice, shares your ideas and makes you proud.

Getting your book on Amazon

Do you need help making your book available and seen as a digital product on Amazon? I can get your Kindle Edition set up quickly. If you dream of having an audio title of the book, we can work together to get your masterpiece available through Audible too.

Is a print book more your style? I’ll help you understand the pros and cons of various publishing options and connect you with appropriate talent for your project.

Stop thinking about that book you’ve always wanted to write and do something to make it so.
