Services and Rates

We customize our writing services to meet the goals and preferences of our clients.

No two books, or clients, are exactly alike. Please allow us to discuss your book in detail and determine the optimal process to achieve your goals.

On a budget? High-quality professional services do not come cheaply, but there are ways to reduce the costs of writing a book. For example, many clients who think they require ghostwriting services need only developmental editing services, which costs considerably less. Please review the various services and packages offered below, or call us to see if we can put together a plan that will achieve your goals within your budget.

Note: We do not offer services that are paid solely by commissions or come with contingencies.
