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, strategic decisions and other non-fiction book needs.

Have you already written a book that could use a keen pair of professional eyes for a developmental edit? Need help getting started on a book you’ve dreamed about writing but never got done? Want some strategic input and content consulting as you work on your book? You’ve come to the right place.

Editing & Strategic Guidance

Enjoy flexible editing services. Copy editing covers typos, grammatical errors, punctuation issues, and poor word choices. Chapters can be delivered one at a time for your review and comment or as an entire book proof when done. Turn-around time is usually 20-30 days, depending on the length of the book and the process you prefer.

Developmental editing delves deeper to explore what’s working and what isn’t relative to the content of your book from the viewpoint of your intended reader. This is a great option 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.


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 40 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.

Consulting & Accountability Support

Sometimes, you get stuck in the book writing process. Maybe you’re struggling with content direction or the organization of your manuscript? Do you need someone to help you figure out what to cut out to make your book shorter than War and Peace? Or are you wracking your brain and still not able to come up with enough content to bind your book? Would you like someone to hold you accountable with weekly chapter reviews and calls to discuss work in progress next steps? Even if you’re just looking for objective perspective or some ideas on how to enhance what you already have, I can help.

Check out the Author Packages to see if one might be a good fit for what you need. If not, we can discuss other options.

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