FAQ

How can I find out more about StoryTerrace?

If you don’t find the question and/or answer you are looking for here, you can call +44 20 8150 2833 weekdays between 9 am and 6 pm BST or email [email protected]. We would love to hear your story and explain how we can help you get started making your own book alongside one of our writers today!

How long does the process take?

We aim to finish all books within 4-7 months which should give you, the writer and project editor plenty of time to complete your project. You can take up to 9 months in case of planned or unplanned delays. If your book takes longer than 9 months to complete it will be subject to extension fees.

What's the difference between the writer levels?

Our writers are grouped according to their level of experience. Junior Writers are up and coming stars - often recent graduates of top journalism and creative writing programmes. Senior Writers are experienced pros, with a substantial body of published work. Our Premium Writers are at the top of their trade, and will have worked for world-leading newspapers and publishing houses.

All of our writers have been carefully selected by our editorial team and will do a great job on your project!

Do you offer installment plans?

Yes, you can pay over five instalments if you prefer. You can also get started with a 20% deposit to cover the process of matching you with a writer. This deposit is fully refundable for 30 days, or until you accept a writer match.

What's your cancellation policy?

You can cancel your project at any time, no questions asked. You'll be able to get a full refund in full for 30 days after you purchase, or until you accept a writer match, whichever is earlier. We may deduct certain costs e.g. the cost of our welcome box. After this time, refunds are no longer possible. View our terms and conditions for more information.

Will you write my book in exchange for royalties?

We work with fixed fees to create books and don’t offer to publish books in exchange for a share in royalties.

If you want someone to write your book in exchange for royalties, you'll need to find a literary agent and secure a deal with a traditional publisher.

We can help you to self-publish your book once it's complete, which we believe is the best choice for most of our clients. If you have questions about the advantages of self-publishing, feel free to contact us!

What is self-publishing?

In the old days, if you wanted to publish a book, you would have to find an agent and secure a deal with a publishing company like Penguin Random House. Most authors were rejected, and if you did manage to get a deal, the publisher would own the rights to your book, and retain most of the profits from any sales. If you needed the publisher to provide a ghostwriter, the chances of getting a deal were vanishingly slim - unless you were Kim Kardashian or Bill Gates!

Self-publishing has made it possible to bypass these gatekeepers, and publish directly via Amazon and other platforms. Self-published authors don't need to get permission to publish their book, and they retain a much larger share of the proceeds from sales. We believe that self-publishing is the right choice for most of our clients - and we've helped dozens of them to self-publish successfully via Amazon and other platforms.

Do you only create biographies?

Not at all! We have helped clients to create and self-publish all kinds of books, from business books and company histories, to spirituality, self-help and wellness. If you don't see what you're looking for, please contact us.
