Does Your Book Need Professional Help?
You have written (or are still in the process of writing) your book, but something just doesn’t feel right about it. Like any other author—yes, even bestselling authors—you need a critical eye to review your manuscript and provide constructive feedback on how to improve your reader’s experience and enhance its appeal to publishers.
- Is your book well organized and structured effectively?
- Is your writing clear and concise? Could it be less redundant?
- Does the first line of your book immediately capture your reader’s attention?
- Does your book end with a strong and compelling conclusion?
- Could content be added or removed to improve the quality of your manuscript?
- Are your novel’s characters well developed and consistent throughout the manuscript?
- Does your self-help book connect with your target audience?
- Does your memoir have an effective narrative arc that is urgent and engaging?
- Is your book marketable?
- Do you have limited or no knowledge of the publishing industry?
- Do you know how to secure a trusted literary agent?
If any of these thoughts (or others) have crossed your mind, we have the answers for you. Our team of #1 New York Times bestselling authors, editors, and publishing consultants can identify the issues that are hindering your book’s effectiveness and provide specific guidance and consultation on how to elevate your manuscript to publishing standards.

What's Included in the Consultation Process?
Our consultants are available to discuss all aspects of your project with you, including planning, preparation, concept generation, organization, development, style, tone, writing, editing, formatting, publishing, and more!
Our consulting process is flexible and customizable to your needs and preferences. Consultation sessions generally take place by phone or Skype, but can also include in-person meetings if necessary or just written feedback.
Once you’re happy with the content of your book, we can help you determine which publishing options work best for you and make your published book a reality!
Can I Work with the Same Consultant the Entire Time I’m Writing My Book?
Absolutely. In general, we strive for continuity when matching consultants with clients. It is also possible to have the same consultant on multiple projects, which helps to build positive working relationships and foster consistency within your body of writing. Of course, if for any reason you would prefer to work with a different consultant, we’re happy to assign a new one.
Will a Reviewer Implement the Changes They’ve Suggested, or Will I Have to Do It Myself?
It all depends on what review and consultation services you’ve ordered. We can provide you with comments and suggestions that you choose to implement yourself, or we can make the edits to the content for you. Our goal is to support you to produce the best possible content through customer service that exceeds your expectations.
Can You Help Me with the Publishing and Marketing for My Book?
We’ve assisted many first-time and experienced authors with self-publishing their book and securing lucrative book deals through traditional publishing avenues. In addition to review and consultation services, you can order a query letter or book proposal to promote your book to agents and publishing houses. We’ll also help you to decide between self-publishing options, and we can put you in contact with marketing services to get the word out about your book.
