Although we’re happy to offer any of our services a la carte,
the best value is available through our Write Now Program Packages.
Become the author of a high quality, nonfiction book without having to do the writing yourself. Share your expertise in an engaging book that people will want to read. Throughout the process, you’ll be able to concentrate on your personal and professional responsibilities, rather than trying to find time to write your book.
As your ghostwriter, Dr. Bush will capture your distinctive voice, tone, and style through recorded interviews with you about your experience and expertise. You will offer her occasional input and feedback as she organizes, writes, and develops your manuscript. This ghostwriting process will allow you to stay focused on what’s important to you—your own life and work. Without doing the actual writing yourself, you’ll experience more freedom, fun, and ease becoming the author of a superior, nonfiction book that will establish your expert authority and credibility in the marketplace.

BONUS! All writers, no matter how experienced, need multiple rounds of editing to ensure the quality of their book. Most publishers do not offer full editing services as part of their publishing packages. Why? Because some manuscripts need more editing than others and manuscripts can also differ greatly in length. We only care that your book is well edited, so as a bonus in all our program packages, we offer you the following editing services:
At this level, your editor will analyze your book, focusing on the organization, development, and coherence of the manuscript as a whole. Your editor will also evaluate the clarity and persuasiveness of your book’s thesis, the soundness of your book’s logic, and the organization and development of your book’s central ideas, making any revisions as needed.
This level of editing focuses on identifying and correcting any weaknesses or errors in the coherence and logic of your book manuscript at the sentence level. Your editor will do a close, line-by-line edit to tighten sentences and correct any weaknesses in grammar, spelling, word choice, tone, or style.
A proofreader meticulously reviews the final draft of your completed book manuscript looking for typographical errors, misspellings, or mistakes that might have been introduced during the book design and production process.
For us to help you produce a professional quality book, we recommend at least two rounds of editing and one proofread. A single “round of editing” means you give your manuscript to an editor. Then you review the editor’s recommendations and revise, further develop, and hone your manuscript accordingly. This completes one round of editing. After you revise, your manuscript will then go through another round of editing, usually copyediting. Finally, your manuscript will be proofread before it goes to your book’s interior designer and then proofread again after your book’s interior design has been completed.
Peacock Proud Press takes away the confusion and worry about publishing.
We work for you to publish a high quality, bestselling book that you can be proud of and that will make a lasting impact in the world. Your manuscript will go through our editing and publishing process to become a professionally published book. And because readers do judge a book by its cover, our designers work with you to create an eye-catching cover and interior layout that motivates readers to buy. Your book will also be available in print and e-book formats for distribution worldwide.
Types of Publishers
Traditional publishers, now consisting of five large publishing houses and their imprints, require authors to waive their intellectual property rights forever. In other words, when you receive an “advance” from one of these publishers, you sell them the content of your book and give up control over things such as the title, cover design, and where it can be sold. Traditional publishers also take 80% royalties or more from each book sold.
Print-on-demand or vanity publishers often get the rights to your book as well, but they may not make the release of your rights clear to you. When this happens, you won’t be able to sell your book from your own website or at events where you speak. You can get your rights back, but you will likely have to pay for them and even that could become a struggle.
Peacock Proud Press is an independent book publisher, a hybrid between traditional and print-on-demand. We know self-publishing can be challenging because you as an author don’t automatically know the steps to publish and launch a quality book.
We do that work for you, and you keep all the rights and royalties to your book.
