What We Do
We develop great story ideas and collaborate with talented writers and editors to bring them to life. Story ideas and concepts are workshopped, then fleshed out into detailed character profiles and plot outlines. The manuscript team – comprised of a ghostwriter and editor – use these outlines as a roadmap to build the full manuscript. The focus throughout is on exceptional storytelling, so the writer and editor work closely to ensure the reader will be blown away by both the story and the prose. Depending on word count, the process from concept creation through to finished novel can range from four to twelve months.
The book then enters the marketing phase where the cover and blurb are optimized to sell, and various advertisements are set up to promote the book. Every book is made with the target of hitting the bestseller list.
