WHAT TYPE OF CONTENT DO WE CREATE?
Memoir / Biographical
HOW DOES THE PROCESS WORK?
CONSULTING - We come in at whatever stage you are in the process. You are doing the writing, but have specific questions about how to elevate your writing. It may be through plot, theme, focus or voice, but we work to strengthen your style so you achieve your goals.
COACHING - This is a very hands-on experience. We meet in person or online to develop a seamless creative team atmosphere. You are doing the writing. We coach you from concept to completion. We'll develop your idea into a tangible strategy of objectives with timelines for ensuring you accomplish your goals.
CONTENT - You may have a vision, a few pages of notes, or a looming deadline. What you may not have is the time to learn the craft of developing that concept into a manuscript. It's okay, we don't all write it out as we hear it in our mind. Through interviews, research of your past works, speeches or sermons, and a collaborative process of creating a sketch of your ideal message, we'll create content consistent with developing your vision into written word.
WHAT DOES IT COSTS TO CREATE CONTENT?
Fees depend on several factors. Considerations may include word count, due dates and final deadline, stage of project when contacted, whether you are under contract with a publisher, self-publishing, writing to shop for literary agents, level of research required and interviews scheduled to ensure clarity in capturing your vision through word, and schedules for writing, revisions and approvals.
Flat fees are based on the scope of work, and all other work beyond the agreement is based on an hourly rate. Our goal is to help you achieve your dream of sharing your story with the world. Making that dream a reality is best accomplished through clear planning, communications and cost expectations.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO WRITE THE BOOK?
How long will depend on several factors. Do you have a firm idea of the goal, theme and scope of the book, or is still it a wonderful idea swimming in your mind? Two of the driving forces are the size of the book (word / page count) and whether you are under a contractual obligation for manuscript submission by deadline. It's also important to understand we are creating a Word document manuscript that should still be professionally edited and proofed.
ANYTHING ELSE TO CONSIDER?
Yes, there are so many things to consider, but the thing to always keep in mind is that whatever path you choose, it is ultimately your name on the cover. How you want the legacy of your name to be associated with what's written behind that cover is up to you. A good ghostwriter / content creator will strive to not only write you a book, but promote your legacy.
