Our Ghostwriting and Editing Team

Our dynamic staff of New York Times bestselling authors, ghostwriters, publishing insiders, and editors has been ghostwriting and editing manuscripts since 2005. Our innovative team approach to the book-writing and publishing process offers clients focused attention from multiple industry experts who work collaboratively and effectively to produce the best possible result. (See our client list.)

We believe that anyone with a compelling story, innovative concept, or empowering message deserves the opportunity to share it in the form of a well-written book.

You’ll find that our professionalism and personalized client care stand out among an industry dominated by impersonal outsourcing companies and budget services who value the quick buck over trade excellence and enduring professional relationships.

If words, creativity, and effective communication are essential to your personal or professional goals, then we are ready and equipped to serve you with passion and precision.
