Once you've written your book, the adventure has just begun.
Now you want to make sure it's edited with excellence and well-designed from the inside out.
Not to mention, you'll want an eye-catching cover that communicates your book's unique message and purpose while also compelling people to buy and read it (yes, unfortunately, many still do judge books by their covers).
Then we'll need to get it printed with precisely the right paper and materials so it looks and feels how you've always dreamed.
After your book's been printed, we'll need to make sure it has a mind-blowing marketing campaign and gets widely distributed so many receive the message the Lord has given you to release to the world!
But we've had it with many of the big-box Christian publishers who have watered down the Gospel, bowed down to cancel culture, censored voices of truth, pandered to political correctness and woke ideologies or have simply sold out to refuse to publish anyone with less than 500k followers.
That's why we've decided to do things differently.
Big-box Christian publishing house deals are growing increasingly unattainable—unless you have 250k+ followers on Instagram, of course.
And then they'll make you pay to work with them while they take upwards of 80% of your sales revenue in royalties AND refuse to publish you if your voice or style deviates from popular cultural norms.
Not to mention require you (or an expensive agent) to spend hours upon hours on book proposals that will inevitably get turned down unless you are a well-known Christian celebrity or have achieved social media fame.
No thanks. We do things much differently so you reap the rewards of your labor.
We could care less about your status or fame. The currency we value is character, commitment to Christ and biblical truth, purity, integrity and heart.
MAN VALUES OUTWARD APPEARANCE,
BUT THE LORD LOOKS AT THE HEART.
how it's done
Our method is very unique in that it is entirely Holy Spirit-led.
Depending on where you're at in your editing or publishing process, we have a step-by-step method designed to simplify what can feel like a scary and overwhelming process.
We do not believe publishing must be hard or stressful.
Jesus tells us that His yoke is easy, and His burden is light, and we believe that applies even to publishing your book!
"Lauren is an encouraging, patient, detail-oriented person to work with. She has given me such encouraging feedback.
She is so respectful and prayerful that I have never felt embarrassed or like she's trying to change my voice.
Quite the opposite. She has gotten to know my writing style so that she can make it the best it can be. She is my confidant and embellisher."

We'll have a 60-minute complimentary consultation to assess your unique needs.
While optional depending on how confident you are with
your current manuscript, this round of edits ensures
your book's structure is sound, organized and effective.
While optional depending on how confident you are with your current manuscript, this round of edits ensures your book's structure is sound, organized and effective.
Next, we'll do a round of editing with a focus on the content of your book—introductions, conclusions, anecdotes, examples, plot, information, etc.
Yes, it really is *that* simple!
After the content has been edited , we'll do fine-toothed comb-through to check the grammar, bibliography, punctuation, copyright page—all the nitty gritty details.
Alas, we're almost done! Before sending the book to the interior designer, we'll send the book another one of our editors to catch anything we didn't.
Once the book's been designed, we'll send it over to the printers and receive what's called a proof (basically a sample). Then we'll go over it *one last time* just to make sure it's in tip top shape.
After the proof has been edited, we'll send it to the interior designer to make any necessary changes. Then we will print in bulk & celebrate!
Working with Lauren was a truly magical experience!
She kept the Holy Spirit at the center and sought His wisdom and blessing each and every step, which powerfully guided me through my writing process.
