Our Services

Support for Authors

Chartwell Literary Group coaches leaders through the writing of their own books and writes proposals for literary projects. We manage the book-writing process for works of fiction and non-fiction, handling everything from organization of book material and interview scheduling to copyright approval and management of a writing schedule. We also convert audio tapes, notes, and other documents into finely crafted books.

Chartwell Literary Group is committed to providing the absolute best support for our authors.

Research and Editing

We provide extensive research and editing services for a wide variety of literary projects.

Creating Literary Teams

We create books for publishers who have a concept but no author, and team them with leaders to bring their literary projects to completion.

Question & Answer

 

Q. What kind of clients do you normally work with?

Our clients have included politicians, business executives, pastors, television personalities and professional authors.

Q. How much do you charge?

Obviously, it depends on what the project is. We have edited small projects–like a foreword or an introduction–for as little as $200.00, but generally we are working on complete manuscripts, which range from $10,000.00 to $90,000.00, or proposals, which range from $1000.00 to $4000.00 if there are sample chapters involved.

Q. How long does it usually take to finish a book?

A book normally takes from four months to a year to complete.

Q. I am a speaker who has a series of tapes I would like to turn into book form to sell on my website. Do you offer this service?

Yes, we do. We have writers who can find the focus of your message and format it for a book or booklet.

Q. Do you do work for publishers?

Yes, we do. We edit dozens of manuscripts for publishers every month.

Q. Does Chartwell Literary Group serve as a literary agent for authors?

No. We are not agents nor are we publishers. We feel we serve our clients best by sticking to what we know well: writing books.

Q. How do I contact you?

Please email us at info@chartwellliterary.com. Describe your project, include your contact information and we will get back to you.

Q. Does Chartwell specialize in certain subjects or does it create literature in any field?

Part of the excitement of running a literary management firm is the wide variety of work involved. We are available for almost any kind of project. We have helped create works of fiction, biography, autobiography, theology, current affairs and political commentary.

Q. Why is hiring Chartwell a better choice than hiring an individual writer or researcher?

Great question. Chartwell was created by Stephen Mansfield during his travels and media appearances around the world, where he was often approached by speakers and highly visible personalities with questions about authoring a book. Stephen discovered that these leaders and celebrities didn’t need just a ghostwriter or just a researcher or just a co-writer. They needed help with the entire process. Chartwell’s team approach is the answer to this. Every project receives attention from a team of experienced professionals—from writers to editors, from experts in a given field to project managers—who assure that the final product meets the highest standards of literary excellence.

Q. Does Chartwell manage projects other than books?

Yes. We are expanding our operation to include production of short video projects, podcasting services and photography.
