Is there a book in you? Blue Pencil Consulting can coach you through the process of crafting a book proposal or act as a "manuscript midwife" to help you write that book and get it out into the world.
We help authors with book manuscripts. Services include manuscript development, editing, and ghostwriting, for both non-fiction and fiction. When you polish your book manuscript until it shines, you'll impress your readers, whether you've gone the traditional publishing route or chosen to self-publish.
