Chap. 3

Can we talk?

During a scheduled series of interviews with you, your family members, your associates and others, I will not only gather the contours of your life, but also the subtleties of who you are.

It's your story and should be told in your voice.

Chap. 4

Search & Research

I will conduct extensive research into your family background, your professional career and volunteer affiliations. This will be shaped into the context against which the narrative is woven.

Chap. 5

Here's proof

Every word of every chapter will be reviewed and approved by you.

The text will be exhaustively proofread and copy edited — by me and by third parties — in order to produce a professional, publication-quality manuscript.

Chap. 8

Let's get physical

We will next design the book's physical appearance.We'll decide about hardcover vs. softcover, color vs. black & white, etc.

 The front and back covers, a wraparound dust jacket, the typeface, page layouts, chapter headings, etc. all combine to give your book a custom professional appearance.

Production

Once your book has been "put to bed," I will guide you towards the most sensible and suitable production and distribution solution.

Most clients opt to use P.O.D. (Print On Demand) providers, while others employ traditional short-run (25 copy min.) printing and binding sources.
