Services

As a champion for authors, we strive to offer the highest quality of services in terms of editing, design, illustration, and publishing. We respond to each request with absolute personalized attention, focusing on goals that work best for YOU and your book.

We are a small-press indie publisher, who also offers a la carte services in editing and design. We are proud to have worked with a long list of best-selling indie authors as well as countless authors who are new to the world of publishing. No matter where you are on the continuum, we’d like to hear from you.

We are, admittedly, a little picky when it comes to submissions for publishing, but we’re always on the alert for a motivated author with a tantalizing tale to spin. We publish nonfiction and fiction in all readership categories: from adult to books for the little ones. We are not genre specific, but instead focus on the unique and diverse literary angles that our published authors can bring to the table. Those who are accepted for publishing will become a part of the #teamV “family,” where we work hard to find the best marketing direction for the authors and their books. It’s an ongoing process beyond the “publication date,” and we are committed to finding the marketing game plan that will allow us all to shine. We publish under both hybrid and traditional models, depending on which option best suits the author and thewordverve, as a team.

Writing

We can fill in the gaps, or write it from scratch. Business or personal, we will discuss your goals and make it happen.  Give us the data, and we will write it and shape it and tweak it and shine it up. We can also help as a developmental writing “coach”, which may include all of the above, plus helping you find your focus on your precious project.

Design and Publishing

Let us help with your book cover, interior design and formatting, and publishing needs. We will review your project and provide recommendations as to your next step.

Editing

Through years of experience and education, we are true professionals in all the areas of content, structure, grammar, and punctuation. We are proficient at all levels of editing services, from a simple proofread to the more in-depth working relationship required in content editing. We are happy to research for clarity and verification, and enjoy the challenges of occasionally thinking outside the box to add some individuality to your project.

Our turnaround time can be blazing fast or our usual good clip – whatever your needs require . . .  and we are budget friendly. The efficiency and cost savings of adding us to your team will leave you more time for your own personal and business needs, and maybe even an extra hair on your head!!
