FAQ's

That's what we're here for. We're a team of bestselling authors who come from traditional publishing. We've overseen the writing and publishing hundreds of books and promise that you won't waste any time on a book that doesn't have a compelling idea and structure because we're going to help you craft it until it does.

It's entirely up to you decide.

While we can consult with you on this decisions, we always want to make it clear to clients that finding an agent is a notoriously difficult process and once you do, you have to wait for the agent to submit the book proposal to publishing houses. And the reality is that having one of those publishers acquire your book is an even more notoriously difficult process than landing an agent.

If you do sell your proposal and want help with the writing, you have the option of hiring a ghost writer but publishers can demand that you work with a ghost writer who charges upwards of $100,000—a serious investment considering the fact that most books don't earn out their advances

The process can also take quite a while...the wait between having a publisher acquire your book and having it come out is usually roughly a year-and-a-half.

Don't get us wrong! There are serious advantages of selling a book to a traditional publisher (that's why we started our careers this way)! Some of those advantages include: serious prestige, no upfront costs and the opportunity to get your book in stores, to name a few.

Still, it's important to know that most books that make it into stores only stay there about a month. And the reality is that publishers don't really do anything to push books—unless you’re Stephen King, JK Rowling or another lead author...that is, someone who doesn’t need the push.

It's up to you to weigh the pros and cons; we can help whichever way you want to go.

Yes, that falls under our mid-stage consulting package.

We can't tell you until we see the material. Some books come to us very clean but the majority of books penned by those who aren't trained as writers need both developmental and copy editing.

This is really for you to determine. We recommend looking at it this way: how much is it costing you not to do a book, in terms of losing potential clients, speaking jobs and better business opportunities?
