This is Duende Press’s signature service. If you want guaranteed turnaround from book concept to digital and print publication within six months—without having to do it yourself—this is your package. We work with clients to write their entire non-fiction manuscript, using their ideas and voice. This process is carried out by conducting interviews, transcribing, organizing and re-writing supplied content, and researching additional content. Our lead writer will take that content and turn it into a first draft.

Our editorial team will conduct developmental edits, a copyedit, and a final proofread on the manuscript. Upon the client’s approval of the manuscript,  we will then format, design, and publish your book—per our contract, you retain the rights and 100% of the royalties!

This is the perfect package for the busy business leader who wants to add a published book to their profile to boost credibility, create a passive income stream, and/or gain high-end speaking engagements.

Note: Due to the significant time investment this package requires, only a select few projects are accepted annually. Contact us and we will determine together if your project is the right fit for Duende Press. 

Package Includes:

  • Weekly consultations/check-ins with lead writer/editor
