Book Preparation

You Can Have Us on Your Creative Team

Turning expertise into books is not an easy task and not something that should be attempted alone. There are two basic paths available to improve the quality and velocity of the project: hire a developmental editor or hire a ghostwriter.

Indie Books International can provide you with either service. 25004935_s

Our development editors are book experts who help you plan the book, serve as creative brainstorming partners, and then give you feedback along the way. You take the notes and redraft each chapter until you are satisfied.

Our ghostwriters are expert writers who help you plan the book, interview you, gather previous articles and speeches you have written, conduct outside research, and then produce a draft manuscript for your input and review. You give them notes on the manuscript and they rewrite until you are satisfied. Their name does not appear on the finished book, you are the author. Then most authors do mention them in the acknowledgement section of the book as an editor.

Here is a menu of our book preparation services:

BookChat™
