Who Uses a Manuscript Development Service?
Our clients are just like you. They are men and women who have a great idea, but just simply don’t have the time or expertise to put their ideas and thoughts on paper.
Rory is a high-level executive, getting ready for retirement. He wanted to write his life story, with a focus on the lessons he learned working as a Portugese businessman in America.

Why Use a Manuscript Development Service?

What Type of Books Do We Write?
We can create something in almost every genre including memoirs, inspirational, self-help, general fiction, children’s literature and coffee table books.
Non Fiction/How To Guide
Our client wanted us to create her book because she realized that, after years of working in real estate, there is not one book that covers all of the tips or tricks of the profession. So, she decided to create her own. She hired us to put it together because she is incredibly busy, and although she is an excellent real estate agent, she realized she didn’t know how to write a book.
This client was abused by her mother as a young child and is now caring for her ailing mother as her health declines. She wanted to share her story in order to educate others about child abuse and offer hope and encouragement to other survivors. She was not sure where to start and felt overwhelmed by the thought of writing an entire book so she hired us to write her story.
One client wanted to share his journey of finding God with his congregation and help inspire them to have faith in God and themselves. However, he was not sure how to convert his sermons and his life story into a book and felt overwhelmed with the task at hand. He decided to hire an expert to mesh the two ideas into one story.
Another client is a history buff and had a great idea for a story but was not sure how to write it, so he hired us to help. His book is historical fiction.
How Does it Work?
We will work closely with you to develop your idea into a finished book. We will:
• Assign a Story Designer to your project. He or she will interview you to discuss your idea in detail and clarify your vision. The Story Designer will always be a point of contact regarding the completion of the project, but your writer will work with you closely. If an illustrator is necessary, the Story Designer will coordinate the selection of an artist for the project and coordinate the creation of the illustrations.
• A writer will be selected whose background is suitable for your project. Your writer will contact you to set up a series of conversations, held via phone or Skype, so that he or she can gather the information necessary to begin the creation process.
• A Summary, an Outline and a Story Graph will be created and submitted for your review and approval. Upon your approval, the creative process gets going full steam.
• The writer will create Chapter 1, based upon the summary and outline, and then submit that to you for your review. Upon approval of Chapter 1, the writer will move onto Chapter 2, and so on, until you have a completed book!
Do I Own the Finished Book?
You will have complete ownership of the finished book and it will carry your name as the author. Once the book is written, we can also work with you to produce a finished book and bring it to market under a separate agreement.
How Much Will it Cost?
Our fees start at $.32/word; if research is required before working on the manuscript, then hourly rate of $95/hour will apply. Beside the usual manuscript development processes, our price also includes professional editing, and getting the manuscript ready for book production phase.
We also can handle translating your book into any other language at $28/ page.
