Editing the Word
for the building
of a spiritual house
that lasts for eternity
Christian Writing Services
You probably have many skills and at least one or more spiritual gifts. Perhaps you are able to encourage and teach others. Maybe you have excellent administrative skills. You may have acquired abundant wisdom overcoming a challenging life situation that others in the same situation need to know.

Perhaps people have said to you, "You should write a book." And you have responded, "But I don't know how," or "I don't have time." That's okay, because writing is my passion. If your manuscript is only a list of ideas on a Starbucks' napkin, I will come alongside you and write for you.

There are a few ways to arrange our writing partnership:

No Cover Credit: Ghostwriting
Ghostwriting means that I will write or substantially revise your work without any credit given to me anywhere at any time. If you decide to tell someone that I helped you write the book, that will be your choice. I will not tell anyone. In addition to the hourly rate, I may or may not receive a royalty. The final fee is negotiable.


Credit: "As Told To"
or "With" (Negotiable)
Sometimes authors allow their writers to receive recognition on the cover, such as the book, Life In Spite of Me by Kristen Jane Anderson with Tricia Goyer.

Co-writers like Tricia not only receive cover credit for their work, they sometimes also receive royalties. In return for the recognition and royalties, the writing fee is reduced
.

How I Write for You


Whether I ghostwrite or co-write, this is a team effort. If you only have a scribbled up napkin or If you have a hundred pages of what looks like interesting stuff, I will shape it into a publishable manuscript.

  1. I will help you identify your book's purpose and audience.

  2. I'll then thoroughly review all of the writing you have completed and identify what additional research is still needed.

  3. I'll gather the missing elements from you and other sources. The more research you can provide, the less time I will charge for this phase.

  4. Next, I will write a draft and deliver it to you by email. On this draft you will answer my questions, make comments, and request changes. I will revise the draft according to your input and submit another draft to you for review. There will be at least two drafts, sometimes three before the final manuscript is submitted to you.

While every effort is made to ensure a polished manuscript upon delivery, keep in mind that even the best writers have editors and proofreaders review their work before publication, And publishers sometimes have three or more editors review a manuscript before going to print. I also recommend that you ask a friend or a relative to review your manuscript before submitting it to a printer or publisher.

You may also have many questions regarding where and how to publish your book. In addition to the helpful resources listed on the Publishing and Marketing Resource page, I will provide one hour of free coaching to help you decide how to proceed with getting the final manuscript into publication.
