Our editors and writers specialize in story, structure, and style.
Together we work with clients to bring their ideas the last mile.
When Tucker decided to turn the stories from his incredibly popular website into a book, we did three things: (1) we tightened a lot of the writing that was good for the internet but not necessarily great for books, (2) we honed in on a type and style of humor that was truest to Tucker's voice and made sure it was consistent across all the stories, and (3) we consulted on story selection and story order to maximize the impact and readability of the book as a whole.
We identify all structural and story issues, identifying solutions to those issues, and refining the author's voice and style in the process. The author will receive a red-lined version of their manuscript with notes & comments to address and stylistic changes to accept, reject or modify.
If your manuscript is essentially complete and you just want to make sure everything is in the right place, sounds good, says what you want it to say, etc, then what you'll want is an Editorial Polish. This is a thorough once-over with all major or glaring style issues fixed and any important story or structure issues addressed in the notes & comments section for the author's review.

If you have a great idea or a great story to tell but you know that you're not a writer, we will take your idea or story and write it for you. We write it, you get the credit.
If you have a great idea or story but you are only comfortable writing a portion of the manuscript, we will pair you up with a previously published author to write the rest of the book with you (NOTE: in most cases, this includes credit for the co-writer on the cover)
If you have a great idea for a book, movie, TV show, product, etc and you want the business proposal or the pitch to sound and read as great as the idea is, we will draft it for you.
This service is for work that is essentially complete but missing that little something. We'll help you identify what that something is and then give it to you.
