You’re in the hands of the, ahem, prose because we bring:

  • Real-life experience writing and publishing our own books
  • More than 30 combined years of experience in publishing, marketing, public relations, and operations
  • Knowledge gained from working on more than 100 (rough estimate) books, from developmental editing and copy editing, to coaching and proofreading, from book proposals and query letters and jacket copy to marketing, platform setup, project management, and technical support
  • Incredible senses of humor (and plenty of modesty…obviously)
