If you are working on a professional text, you can enlist our services to develop your book proposal. Once your proposal has been sold, if time is an issue , we can provide writing or editorial support, working from drafts, research, or interview transcripts.
Writing the Book Proposal
In consumer publishing, the same book proposal can be shopped simultaneously to 20 houses. In contrast, publishers of professional books usually require that proposals follow very specific guidelines. As a result, the proposal needs to be rewritten for every publisher. We are accustomed to this process and can tailor the information to each set of specifications. A successful proposal defines your book clearly to perspective publishers and makes a compelling case for its contribution to your field.
Shopping a Professional Book
The Writers’ Group has served in as an agent to market professional books. We can work with you to identify your book’s unique niche, write or edit your proposal, develop a list of the most likely prospective publishers, and submit the proposal. Unlike an agent, we do not charge a fee for this service.
Developing a Multiauthored Text
We are experienced in the development, management, and editorial support required to produce a multi-authored text of the highest quality. We are skilled at formatting and editing the text to a unified voice, retaining the originality and integrity of each contribution, to provide a sense of flow and readability throughout the book.
Support for Contributing Authors
If you have authors who find themselves too busy to meet the publisher’s due date, we can provide writing or editorial support through interview or editorial services to help them achieve the polished content they desire in the necessary time frame.
Providing In-Depth Analysis
Good critical thinking is an integral aspect of our writing and research process. We excel at organizing and communicating complex information and presenting it with clarity. We can help you make your case through powerful logic, compelling case studies, and crystal-clear data.
In developing a professional text, you may find key information in a journal article or some other published source. The inclusion of a few well-selected articles can add dimension to your text. We handle the permissions process and then adapt the content to your book.
Good graphics can bring a book alive and make your book attractive and marketable. We work with the visual development of text by consulting on layout, selecting images, and creating attractive graphics that convey the data at a glance,
Your Finest Work
A professional book establishes you as an expert in your field. Although the publication of your book can open new avenues of opportunity, it is the quality of your book that demonstrates the level of your expertise and your professionalism.
We support your finest work. The end product is polished, professional writing in your own voice, highlighting your expertise, your best critical thinking, and the depth of your knowledge.
