We offer these helpful services for all writers.

Query Letter
Let our team write a query letter for you that will catch the attention of a literary agent or publisher.

Writing a stellar book synopsis is our specialty. After completing a brief questionnaire to share the key details about your book with us, our writers will provide you with three different synopsis’s for you to choose from.

Back Cover Summary
Our creative team will write a standout summary of your book tailored to intrigue the readers of your genre.

Book Blurb
Publishing a book and need some terrific quotes for the back cover? Send us your manuscript and we’ll send you five blurbs to choose from.

Book Trailer
Let our expert video editors create a 30-second promotional video for your new release.

Book Reviews
Have a book in need of a review? No matter the genre, send us an electronic version of your book and we’ll write an honest review of your work. Books reviewed cannot exceed 120,000 words. Reviews range from 50 to 500 words – you choose. Reviews are always posted on high profile book sites such as Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Goodreads, and on our own site Writers You Should Know.

Short Critiques
This option is for creative writers who want to receive critical feedback on their work. Writers electronically submit a piece of their work (up to 10K words). The writer receives a detailed reader report and a personalized 250-word critique.

Private Consultation
No matter the question or issue, you decide the topic of discussion during these private conversations. From advice on publishing, recommendations for excellent writing resources, questions about character and plot, to savvy business advice, get the information firsthand. Consultations are conducted by phone or video conference. The writer selects which option they prefer. Consultations are scheduled a minimum of 48-hours in advance.

Writing Coach
Need someone to hold you accountable for your word count goal? Want daily words of encouragement and support? Need reminders it’s time to write? Have an idea and want to get feedback on it? Let one of our writing coaches serve as your mentor, available just an email or text away for a period of time you select. It’s like having a personal trainer for writing!

The links to the interviews are yours to share on social media or wherever you would like.
