I am Jessica Tilles, national best-selling author of ten books and the award-winning publisher of Xpress Yourself Publishing, an independent publishing house with more than 150 titles in print.
With 20 years of writing books in all genres, as your literary ghostwriter, I will bring your idea and dream to fruition. I will be your complete source of inspiration, writing, and editing, as well as your publishing consultation.
Ghostwriting your book is a collaboration of love. I have a passion for writing and listening, and you are passionate about your story. However, I do far more than just write. I act as your coach. I endeavor to inspire you to do your best work, help organize you and your thoughts, offer creative solutions and styles you may not have considered, and then manage the project from beginning to end to your total satisfaction.
The ghostwriting process begins with your contacting me at Jessica@twasolutions.com or calling: 202-702-7120. We will discuss your needs at length to see if we are a perfect match. Once we’ve talked and you feel we are a good fit, I will send you a non-disclosure statement, a typical agreement, and a firm quote for all work.
Depending on the type of ghostwriting needed, projects may take from three to six months to complete.
What’s in the package?
In addition to ghostwriting your book, TWA Solutions will provide the following services:
Coaching—This is part of the process of ghostwriting your book and is included in my fee. However, I do coach other writers on a fee or hourly basis, helping them to polish their ideas and their writing abilities. This may include rewrites, suggestions, and content editing. Please email Jessica@twasolutions.com for more information on rewrites, suggestions, and content editing.
Publishing Consulting—With my publishing background, I can advise you on a variety of ways that you can self-publish, often at a very low cost. I can also advise you on the promotion and marketing aspects of your book, whether you self-publish or ultimately sell your work to a traditional publisher.
Custom Book Cover Design for trade paperback or hardcover.
5-Page Author-related Web Site to meet your specifications.
Written Press Release written for your book.
Electronic Media Kit created for you as an author and your book.
Copy Editing Services—You can be sure that your English-language manuscript will be polished and ready for self-publication or submission to your publication of choice. My staff at TWA Solutions is comprised of accomplished and seasoned writers and editors who will make your words and story flow beyond your wildest imagination. We correct grammar, delete redundancies, fix problem sentences, and even sharpen your vocabulary. We also edit for overall wordiness, replace inappropriate words, and eliminate obvious spelling errors. To improve the overall clarity and organization of your manuscript, we even re-arrange sentences and paragraphs, if necessary.
Editing is the foundation of a solid manuscript. When editing manuscripts, we will look for:
- Intended Audience (reading level, style, tone),
- Literary Devices (metaphors and similes, foreshadowing, repetition),
- Character Development,
- Dialogue and Narrative Flow, and
- Description (use of imagery, setting).
