The many options that come with creating, publishing, and promoting your story can often feel overwhelming as a writer. The Authors' Assistant offers an established framework that connects writers with their readership.
With two decades of expertise in manuscript preparation, book production, and public relations, The Authors' Assistant guides writers through the publishing process from idea to launch.


The Authors' Assistant opened their doors in 1996 at the onset of an ever-changing publishing industry. Their mission to guide aspiring and established authors 

through an ostensibly arduous process, allows authors to focus on what they love to do: write.


After two decades working with over 300 authors and publishers, Mindy and Danielle are equipped to guide you through the editing, publishing, and promotion of your book with professionalism and ease.

Allow The Authors' Assistant to do what they do best, so you can get back to what you do best.
