5 Easy Steps

5_easy_stepsScottsdale Multimedia ghostwriter and editing service has been writing, editing and publishing books for more than 25 years. We are a small group of professional, published, award winning writers and editors who also ghostwrite books for our clients. A “ghost” writer is a professional writer for hire who helps inexperienced authors write and edit their books, brochures, website copy, etc.

We realize that most of those who contact us about writing a book have never had any experience in the writing profession, and don’t even know the right questions to ask us.

As a result of our decades of writing books for our clients, we have developed an easy to understand 5 Step Process.

Step 1 — SCHEDULE
Once we have agreed to write your book, we set up a schedule when we can begin the process of collecting information for your book. We attempt to remain flexible in our schedule for your convenience.

Step 2 –INTERVIEWS
On the day we’ve have scheduled the interviews–with you, or those you designate–we come to you or you come to us, and we sit down with you for 2 or 3 days and record a series of interviews with you.

Step 3 –WRITING
After the interviews are completed, we have them transcribed and begin the writing process.

Step 4 –REVIEW
When we have completed the first draft of your manuscript, we provide it to you for your review, corrections, updates, and input. You then return it to us.

Step 5 –DELIVERY
After we’ve had a chance to review your suggestions and corrections to the first draft, we rewrite the manuscript to reflect those changes. Then we deliver your manuscript to you. If you feel it is finished, we are done.  If you have additional corrections and suggestions, we will rewrite it again, until you are satisfied.

Publish Your Book

publish_your_bookAs an “author” you are very interested in the publishing world. Transforming your manuscript into a published book is a marvelous and often mystifying process. Seeing your name on the cover of your own book, and opening its pages and seeing the words you wrote in print is an unparalleled experience.

Knowing how to get your manuscript noticed, and seriously considered by a publisher is key to your success as a writer. The first thing you must understand is that the publishing industry is inundated with manuscripts that will never see the light of day—should never see the light of day. So you need to follow a strict code of best practices to get your book serious consideration by by literary agents and publishers.

Scottsdale Multimedia can show you how to contact literary agents, who can represent your manuscript to publishers.

Perhaps you don’t intend to go the traditional publisher route.  Indeed, there are several alternate options available today.

Specialty Publishers

There are several regional and local publishers that are actively looking for new authors with meritorious manuscripts. You don’t necessarily need an agent to get a publishing contract with one of these companies.

Self-Publication

Many of Scottsdale’s clients prefer to have their books printed and bound by their own publisher, for various reasons. A few possibilities are:

  •     they have their own distribution network in place (MLM, retail outlets, sales network)
  •     their books are meant to be handed out individually to prospective clients
  •     their books are meant to be supplied with product orders
  •     their books are meant for limited distribution (family, friends, library)
  •     the book is a gift to an honored loved one or key corporate person
  •     the book is intended for digital distribution
  •     the book will be sold directly through a website (web design service>>)
  •     higher profit margins for the author

Self-publishing can also help an aspiring writer “boot-strap” his way into the publishing industry. There are a number of now famous authors who self-published their books, to prove their marketability to the publishing industry.

eBooks and Internet Sales

Digital eBooks have become very common, and nearly all of them are purchased over the Internet. Scottsdale Multimedia can help you prepare your completed manuscript for sale on any number of online book sellers:

  •     Amazon Kindle Store
  •     Google eBooks
  •     Barnes & Noble Nook Store
  •     Apple iBooks, Kobo Books
  •     Sony Reader Store
  •     eHarlequin eBook Store
  •     Taylor & Francis eBookstore
  •     Cambridge eBookstore
  •     BooksOnBoard
  •     Random House eBooks
  •     Powell’s Books eBooks
