Writing with Purpose and Passion

Our Mission

For more than a decade, writers such as yourself have leveraged our award-winning professional editing and publishing management services to become successful authors. After all your labors, having your new-born book in your hands is euphoric.

Our mission is to partner with you to make that happen.

There is no greater joy and no higher purpose than writing a story that connects us to one another. Bring us your story, work with us, and together we will make it a compelling page-turner. When your manuscript is the best it can be, we will guide you through the publishing process and find your readers.

You can view our services and some indicative pricing on our Services for Authors page. Before we accept you as new writer, we ask that you submit the first 20 pages of your manuscript for us to review.  It gives us a chance to assess your potential, configure a blueprint for moving forward, and a chance for you to see the value of our experienced feedback. We play to your strengths.There is no charge for this initial exchange. It’s our first step towards forming an author/editor relationship, upon which every successful novel depends. Even Hemingway had an editor, and we are fluent in multiple genre.

“A writer is among the lucky few who discovers that art is not a diversion or distraction from everyday life; rather, art is an essential expression of the human spirit.” 

Monika Spykerman, past Associate Editor, AWwYP

Writing is a pleasure, and we are here to amplify the joy it brings to the writer and the reader.  Are you sitting on a manuscript or work-in-progress? We’d like a word from you. What’s your story?
