Your Publishing Coach

A premier service of Maine Desk is helping authors see their name in print. We do this through the services of Your Publishing Coach.

Does this sound familiar?

You did something interesting–an innovation at work, a research project, a terrific student paper. A colleague said, “You should publish this!” so you wrote it up and sent it to a journal. It came back with either a flat-out rejection or a lukewarm suggestion for extensive revision. Now you are at a loss–what is the next step?

Call the staff at Maine Desk. We can help. This scenario is all too familiar. While many colleagues may suggest that you publish your work, few offer concrete steps for success. We do–in fact, we can be your coach.

We take a first draft or rejected manuscript and help you move through the process to see your name in print. We work with you every step of the way: targeting journals for publication, writing query letters, revising the manuscript to meet the specifications of the identified journal. We make sure you submit the manuscript in the proper format and follow up with the editor during the revision process.

An all-in-one package.

Your Publishing Coach is designed to be affordable. For a flat fee of $400, we work with you from beginning to end–including necessary revisions after initial review by a journal. We even include the champagne celebration after your manuscript is accepted for publication!

Is this service right for you?

Personal consultation is the best way to make a decision. Contact us directly, whether by phone or email, to discuss your publishing needs.
