Your Professional Publishing Team

Sexen Days of Shiva, by Marc Gellman

Authors’ HQ is a curated network of publishing professionals who work with writers of fiction and nonfiction.

You’ve already done a lot of the hard work. You’ve written a book. Now you want the peace of mind that comes from knowing you’ve done everything you needed to do to publish a quality book. That’s where we come in.

We’ve edited thousands of books, many of which have gone on to win awards and become bestsellers. 

With publishers and agents doing less editing these days, it’s becoming more common for even established writers to work with a professional editor. Our network of professionals love books, and we take pride in treating authors with at least the same level of care, respect, and diligence that authors get from established publishers. We know what authors need because we’ve worked for major publishers and with successful authors.

You’ve written a book. Now what?

These days, there’s no reason why anyone can’t put out a top-notch, high-quality book without a traditional publisher or agent. And once you realize you need your book …

–and a cover designed
–and typesetting for the book’s interior
–and a plan for marketing
–and a plan for distribution
–and everything else

… you want to be able to hand over some of those tasks to people who know what they’re doing.

We’ve got you covered.

We get what you’re seeking to do, and we know how to help you do it well. We know the market, we understand what readers are looking for, and we know how to bring out the best in your draft without changing your authorial voice. Many of us are published writers as well, so we understand the sensitivities involved in having someone else suggest changes to your words or structure. We also help writers who previously published but didn’t receive the positive feedback that was expected.

(We tend to book out months in advance, so feel free to query while you’re still in the writing process.)
