Writer's Lifeline Yoga Gives BackPennyTerk.com

Writer's Lifeline offers writers of all kinds information, guidance, solutions, and opportunities for transporting their vision onto the page and into the commercial marketplace in a way that will reach the greatest possible audience. We hope you'll find this site informative, instructive, entertaining, and ultimately profitable.

The Writer's Lifeline is a full-range editorial services company led by founder and chairman Ken Atchity, building on Ken's thirty-five years experience in the literary world: as author, producer, career coach, screenwriter, consultant, editor, instructor, agent, literary manager, and public speaker.

Writer's Lifeline prepares writers for the commercial book and film marketplace by bringing your skills to the level of your talent and vision. Writer's Lifeline clients have accounted for millions of dollars in booked sales by our sister (parent) company AEI Literary Management and Motion Picture Production since we opened our doors in 1996.

Writer's Lifeline appraises your writing with practical-minded discernment and teaches you, one on one, how to marry creativity and commerce. Because of our special relationship with AEI, we're always on the lookout for potentially commercial writing talent that we can bridge to the success you deserve. That means our editorial guidance is based not only upon artistic principles, but also upon today's marketplace realities.

Once we've helped you bring your project up to the highly competitive level of the marketplace, we help you take that last step by having our sister company AEI or an appropriate agency give it priority consideration for representation. Sometimes, all it takes is being pointed in the right direction by a coach who's played in the big leagues. We've helped bestsellers Steve Alten, James Michael Pratt, Shirley Palmer, Cheryl Saban, Ripley's Believe-It-Or-Not, John Scott Shepherd, and Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura. Let Writer's Lifeline help you perfect your best asset.

Our development professionals can help you get your finished work into shape for today's market. You can save even more money, time, and sweat by retaining the services of a development editor BEFORE you finish your manuscript.

We can help you over the rough spots, help you translate your talent into the kind of marketable skill that publishers and entertainment execs recognize - and get excited about.
