The Right Team
You need answers—the right answers for you.
And that’s why we opened shop.
Whether you’re chasing the dream of an agent or looking to self-publish, the publishing revolution has expanded writers’ opportunities tenfold. But there’s a catch: that means the publishing options are dizzying and the path to success isn’t always clear.
That’s where we can help.
When we worked only for traditional publishers, the worst part of our day was sending form rejection letters; editors are slammed with work and simply don’t have time to coach writers, so many authors struggle without that insider perspective.
Since we’re working for ourselves now, we can give it to you straight. And that means we’re going to. We don’t want you blindly offering your unpolished “baby” to the world so a mean-spirited reviewer can take the first stab, and we won’t let you slap an unmarketable cover on your book after all your hard work writing it.
In short, we’re the right team for you if you want to go pro.
Whether that means leaving a meaningful legacy for your family or seeing your book on the shelves, you’ll get a customized editing and publishing plan with serious professional support and guidance.
So whether you want to self-pub or get an agent, we’ll help you learn to stand out and make a bigger impact. Why? Because filling the world with powerful books is vital. Writers are important; they’ve changed history, they’ve changed our lives, and we want to ensure they keep changing the world, one reader at a time. That’s our story.
Now, let’s make sure your story is heard.
