Who You Are

You have an inspiring message to share. For years, people have been telling you—and you’ve been telling yourself—that you should write a book.

But if you’re already aware that publishing a book can grow your business, lead to personal growth, or motivate others and you haven’t yet done it…chances are you don’t have the time, the desire, or the expertise to do it yourself.

That’s where we come in.

Who We Are


Duende Press is a ghostwriting, editing, and self-publishing company specializing in memoir and transformational books. We help entrepreneurs, executives, entertainers, and people with inspirational life stories engage and grow their audiences with a book.

We don’t just coach you on how to write and publish your book—we can do the work for you. You guide us with your goals and supply the bones of your story, then we set about conducting the necessary research and interviews to fill in the gaps. We write (and/or edit) your book using your ideas and your voice, and help you publish it. The best part is, you get 100% of the rights and royalties.

At the core of our services are high standards of authenticity, integrity, creativity, and professionalism. We help our clients gain credibility in their field, generate passive revenue, and leave an inspirational legacy through the publication of their book.

We are a team of dedicated professionals, made up of writers, editors, designers, and marketing/publishing experts. We love to work with people who:

  • Have a sense of humor
  • Are humble about their achievements
  • See the world through a lens of gratitude
  • Believe that everyone’s life has a higher purpose
  • Are continually seeking to be better than they were yesterday
  • Understand that their book is not about them—it’s about the people it touches.

If this sounds like you, we look forward to hearing from you!
