Memoirs & Other Nonfiction: Planned or In Progress

Do you have an idea for a book, a book in progress, or a complete manuscript and need help from a publishing professional who specializes in memoir and nonfiction to determine what’s needed to make your book as good as it can be? For 30 years, I’ve helped authors plan and complete memoirs, self-help books, business books, informational books, travel books, cookbooks, gardening books, and books of regional interest.

In a telephone or videoconference call we discuss your book and your concerns about it.

Do you have a book idea and haven’t started writing?
