While we offer a range of writing and editing services, we are uniquely positioned to help authors develop books from concept to fruition. When authors take the time and effort to write and publish a book, the finished product should yield maximum ROI. To do that, it’s essential to build the content in a way that sets authors up to meet their goals when the book is released. Pithy Wordsmithery has experience building content as a marketing piece, which is a crucial element for giving a book traction. In addition to selling copies, we work with authors to ensure their book is a tool for driving revenue through other products and services they provide.

Our work has appeared on the bestsellers lists for The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble.

Process

The experience of writing a book is different for every author, which is why we tailor our approach to meet each person’s individual needs. Whether you have a lot of material written already or nothing on paper at all, we can work with whatever you have to expand and edit, as needed. Over the course of a project, we correspond with clients via phone, video chat, email, and typically a few times in person. Frequent communication is helpful for keeping the project on track and allowing us to get a feel for the author’s voice. To ensure a high level of quality, we recommend at least six months to write and edit standard business books, whether going through a traditional publishing house or self-publishing.
