From the time we meet on an intro call, to the time you’re holding your published book, we lead with relationships and trust.
Relationships come in the form of our team—you will be assigned a Project Manager, a Writer, and a Copy Editor to see your project through to completion.
Trust is the core value we have built our offering on. You may not know the ins-and-outs of writing and publishing, but we do. And we’ll serve as your guide each step of the way.
Our 16-Week Process begins with a two-hour Kick-Off Call. This is where we clarify things like audience, themes, outline, and more. It’s very conversation, but extremely beneficial to the project as a whole.
Whether you’re writing (Option 1) or we’re writing (Option 2), we will be in touch weekly! This is accompanied by our bi-weekly check-in calls and/or interviews. We will be with you each step of the way.
As stated on our About page, many authors have “Bestseller” intentions, and we don’t blame them. We honestly walk you through the writing process and set clear expectations for before, during, and after authorship.
Some publishers don’t want to see your manuscript until it’s finished. At Streamline, we will come alongside your manuscript at any point (a block of marble) and chip away at anything that isn’t your book.
No part of writing a book is easy, but all of it should be fun. Maya Angelou once said, “I don’t like writing; I like having written.” We agree with her. But it’s also true that writing is much more pleasant alongside good people.
Our PM’s, writers, and editors are not just good at what they do—they’re really nice people! Sharing your words with others is a vulnerable thing, but rest assured our Streamline team takes each word to heart.
“I’d like to do the writing” tells us that you’re leaning toward Option 1, which is great! With this option, you lead the way with a bulk of the writing, and one of our Development Editors will trail you and edit along the way.
“Guys I don’t have the time and/or skill” often means a full Ghostwrite, which is also exciting for our team! We get to interview you, transcribe, and write a bulk of your book while maintaining the authenticity of your voice.
After writing and publishing your book, you are free to “Take it from here” or hire our team to help you with content strategy, email marketing, website design/hosting, podcast creation, social media and more!
