Rick Killian


NYT Bestselling developmental editor and ghostwriter. Whether you have the inkling of an idea for a book and don’t know where to start or are ready to look for an agent or publisher, I can help you create a quality manuscript and develop a plan for getting it into the market and make an impact for your business or nonprofit.


My wife, Melissa, and I help put thought leaders on the map by turning their signature ideas into books, and then helping them get those books published. That could involve anything from coaching them to write their own books to editing to ghostwriting their book for them. We work with agents, traditional publishers, and well as coach authors through the process of writing, self-publishing, and promoting for themselves. For more about specific books we've worked on, please go to our website.
