On this page you will find links to the web sites of nearly every publisher, literary agent and university press in the field.  If you happen to stumble across a link that is broken, there's nothing I can do about it.  There are so many links on this page, it takes HOURS to find individual links that are broken, and MOST of the time . . . I never find them at all.  Sorry.

ghostwriting in any genre (poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction)

Fees: No job is too big or too small, and our rates are fair and tailored to your needs and to your manuscript. Mentoring, manuscript critique, and consultation rates are also designed for each individual author or corporation. For your peace of mind, we provide a service agreement outlining the particulars of your contracted editorial, writing, research, and mentoring services (with an "out" clause should the facts of your life change sufficiently to require we discontinue the work)-- and your work and our agreement always remain confidential.
