Published By Any Means™

We’ll help you publish the best book possible.

We’ll bring years of writing, editing, and publishing knowledge to bear to help you get published. Our goal is to work with you to craft the best book possible. Once your manuscript is polished and ready for publication, we’ll submit it to agents for you. If you don’t land a book deal you’re happy with within a year, we’ll help you self-publish it at no additional cost.

We’ll make sure your book is as ready as it can be to pitch to agents and publishers.

Preparing the manuscript involves a nine-step editorial process, guided by our award-winning editorial team:

  1. We perform developmental editing.

  2. You or our team rewrite any sections that need work.

  3. We copyedit the manuscript.

  4. You review our changes and make any of your own.

  5. Five beta readers read the manuscript. 

  6. We correct any issues that come up during beta reading.

  7. A sensitivity reader conducts an additional review.

  8. We correct any issues that come up during sensitivity reading.

  9. We proofread the manuscript.

We’ll then expertly prepare your supporting materials to pitch to agents.

The package includes:

1. A query letter
2. A synopsis
3. An outline
4. A book proposal (if needed)

We’ll pitch to agents and publishers for you for up to a year.

  1. We’ll create a targeted list of agents and publishers.

  2. We’ll manage the submission process for query letters and proposals so that you can focus on writing your next manuscript or simply relaxing.

We can even act as a liaison between you and the agents and publishers (all included in this price).

If, in one year, you’re not offered a traditional publishing contract with the terms you’re looking for, we’ll guide you all the way through self-publishing.

Don’t be disheartened if you don’t get published on the first attempt—after all, it took JK Rowling 13 tries to get a publisher for the Harry Potter series. However, self-publishing is a viable alternative to traditional publishing.

This is a free service if you aren’t offered a traditional publishing contract after a year—like an insurance policy in case you don’t get an offer from a traditional publisher or you do get offers but you don’t like them.

The free self-publishing package includes the following services:

  1. Cover design

  2. eBook formatting

  3. Print book formatting
