This first step is to get to know you and your work. We only hope to receive a ready submission, but we are editors and publishers with an eye toward marketability. While we appreciate a clean manuscript, we are looking for style, organization, and compelling stories. Even a nonfiction book needs to keep the reader turning the page.
We have seen thousands of submissions, so it does not take long for us to diagnose any problems with your manuscript. We provide feedback on what you need to improve your work.
We combine our book assessments with Author SEO. Part of our strategy is to find your audience as we are diagnosing your manuscript. SEO, Search Engine Optimization is very misunderstood. Few people can do this effectively, and authors underutilize this valuable tool. Proper keyword research provides you with words and phrases that map the behavior of your ideal audience. We find the most engaged customers who want what you have. We completely customize our work. We find the words and phrases that have the most “juice” and guide you on using them to drive readers to you.
After you have an assessment of your work, you will have the diagnosis and blueprint but might not know how to revise your work. Our expert book coaches create a customized workbook to help guide you through the editing process.
No matter if you are writing nonfiction, creative nonfiction-memoir, or a novel, we can assign you a suitable match. We are strengths-based , so our goal is to bring out your voice in a positive way. We want you to be successful and guide you to have a viable project rather than one that will remain unpublished.
Our book coaches become your teammates and mentors until your book is ready for the next steps.
