Literary Services

John M. Daniel Literary Services is a division of Daniel & Daniel, Publishers, Inc. I provide services and support to businesses and organizations, other publishers, and especially to individual writers who need help with the written word. I offer editing of various sorts, manuscript evaluation, ghostwriting, private instruction and mentorship, and help with the manuscript submission process. I’m also available for lectures and workshops, and can provide a number of support services in the fields of book production, publication, marketing and promotion.

It’s my belief that every good writer needs a good editor. I also know that writing is a lonely business and we all need feedback and guidance from time to time. I am grateful for all the friendly encouragement and advice and instruction I’ve received along the way (and I’ve been making my way as a writer/editor/publisher for thirty years). Now I am in business to pass some of that wisdom and enthusiasm along to other writers.

So, if you need a book written or a manuscript edited, if you want ongoing supportive critique of your writing, if you want help getting your writing out into the hands of readers, or if you want coaching on your craft or advice on your career, read on.
