The Transitive Empire


Write it, and they will read -- perhaps.
     Books proliferate, time shrinks.
     Specialization has created new vocabularies that readers may be ill-equipped to understand.
     Books share leisure time with television, movies, music, video games, and the Internet.
     For learning, growth, research, and information, books can get lost in the forest of special-interest periodicals and Internet documents.

The Transitive Empire's editors will read your book for content, sense, flow, coherency, and missing elements.
     Together we will explore the book from a reader's perspective:
     Who are your readers?
     Will they want to read your book?
     What do you offer them in exchange for their time?

The Transitive Empire can meet with you in person, or work together via telephone and real-time, on-line sessions.
     We will help you clarify, check facts, and keep your focus.
     Our editing will address style, grammar, sense, and always, your audience.

The Transitive Empire has advanced on-line search skills and resources.
     Our writers have been on line since 1981,
     and we can put your final book on the World Wide Web.
