I hone stories for a living. Three nonfiction books have become bestsellers. Memoirs, marketing campaigns, novels, news articles, and newsletters all tell tales. I have told them for Barnes & Noble and the New Yorker, for major political and sports figures, for the New York Stock Exchange and publishers like PenguinRandomHouse and St. Martin's Press. I also consult on content marketing and media strategy, which are other forms of storytelling.

BOOKS & PROJECTS BY SETH KAUFMAN
EDITING & DOCTORING
Every writing project is different. Perhaps you’ve gone as far as you can and want help fine-tuning your work. Or maybe you need your memoir trimmed or expanded. Or characters in your novel are perfect but the plot needs fixing. I’m here to get your book in publisher-ready shape
What story do you want to tell and who do you want to tell it to? I help clients define their goals and achieve transformational results, That means following industry best practices and then going beyond them to find the right message and the right channels to reach your audience.
I have co-authored three memoirs and five nonfiction books, but I can only talk about a few of them — since ghostwriting often requires anonymity and confidentiality. I can say two of my projects hit the Amazon Top 20 and one landed on the NY Times Bestseller List. I work to tell the story you want told.
Behind every nonfiction book sale is a book proposal. I’ll work with you to define and convey the hook of the book. What is the book about? What, ultimately, is its appeal? And who will it appeal to? We’ll answer those questions. We’ll also create a detailed, chapter-by-chapter outline, and a sample chapter.
Thanks for checking out my site. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you are looking to discuss a project.
