Publishing Industry

Between them, Deborah and Melanie have more than 35 years of experience in publishing and have written, edited, or developed more than 100 books, 15 of which are commercially published titles under their own names. Their new website,, outlines their services and will periodically provide site visitors with writing and publishing industry tips.

“When we write our own books, it’s a solitary endeavor,” Melanie said today. “As a ghostwriter, editor, book doctor, or consultant, we’re able to collaborate with others and share ideas.”

“I especially love helping others make their dream a reality,” Deborah added. “Many people who come to us have wanted to write a book for years. We can make it happen for them.”

Melanie is the author of seven books of her own, including Hummingbirds: Jewels on Air (which also contains eight of her photographs), The Cocktail Kit (which sold more than 100,000 copies), and 52 Weeks of Passionate Sex (which sold out its first printing within a week of release.) She has ghostwritten and edited numerous books, some of which have won awards. Melanie edited Brenda Bence’s book, How YOU™ Are Like Shampoo for Job Seekers: The Proven Personal Branding System to Help You Succeed in Any Interview and Secure the Job of Your Dreams, which won the 2009 Best Beach Books Festival Grand Prize, and she edited Debra Fine’s The Fine Art of the Big Talk, which was published by Hyperion. She has also published fiction and poetry.
