Services to Help You Write and Publish Your Book
At Clear Sight Books, we offer several services to help you find your message, and then write and publish your book. With all the options, you work directly with our small team and get individual attention. We’re not a factory; we don’t crank through hundreds of clients a year. You’ll always know who you’re working with and have direct access to them.
Manuscript Critique & Strategy Intensive
When you’re in the midst of writing a book, it can be difficult to remain objective about what’s working and what’s not. This intensive goes beyond a standard manuscript critique. You work directly with Karin and get not only her editorial skills but also her business strategy and coaching skills to assess your goals and whether your manuscript helps you achieve them. Recommended prior to editing. Starts at $2295. Read more about the Manuscript Critique & Strategy Intensive.
Editing & Publishing
When you’ve got a complete manuscript, we’ll give you a custom estimate for editing and publishing. Editing may include substantive editing, line editing, or copyediting, as well as proofreading. Karin’s specialty is rewriting or revising early drafts, often for busy professionals who can get the initial content on the page but don’t have the time or expertise to refine it and are comfortable delegating that process.
Publishing typically includes interior book design, cover design, and production logistics for both print and ebook versions. Prices vary. Read more about Editing & Publishing.
Ghostwriting & Collaborations
If you prefer to invest in a full creative partnership, we’ll write your book together. While Karin does most of the actual writing, you are intimately involved in the process, and the rest of the team comes in with fresh eyes. We work to make sure your voice comes through; the end result is truly your book. Read more about Ghostwriting & Collaborations.
Choose an intensive coaching package, typically 2–4 weeks, to help you jump-start your book. Or engage in a longer program, typically 3–12 months, to receive not only project structure and accountability, but editorial feedback and publishing support. Prices range from $495 to $8495; the most popular coaching program is $3995. Read more about Book Coaching.
