1. IDEA ARCHITECTING

Long before most agents get involved, our work begins with the identification of a powerful message that the culture needs to hear. We take a visionary’s life work and discover together the most effective way to convey their message in book form. If desired, we help pair you with a collaborative writer that will assist you in the writing process.

2. RIVETING PROPOSAL

We then work closely with our authors to develop some of the most effective and persuasive publishing proposals in the industry, based on a deep understanding of what publishers are looking for and the 107 reasons why they say no. We also know the only two reasons publishers say yes.


3. PITCHING PUBLISHERS

 

Then we pitch projects to the very best editors and publishers in the industry. We work with the biggest and most powerful publishers in the United States and around the world because we want our books to be read by a truly global audience. During this phase you speak with and receive offers from editors who are most interested in your book. We encourage clients to choose based on the advance, the editorial relationship, and the overall commitment of the publisher.

4. JOYFUL AND SKILLFUL WRITING

Whether authors are working with one of our collaborative writers or not, we work very closely with them to create the most powerful and persuasive book, and to make the process easy and joyful. This often involves regular check-ins, crowd-sourcing ideas, and feedback at every step of the writing process to develop ideas to their fullest potential.
