The Power of Boutique

We dive in with our authors to help them develop their manuscripts into creative, accessible books, ebooks, audiobooks, and sometimes even merchandise. We’re patient, because we know editing your own work sometimes needs to be a gentle process; but we also know where to push you to delve deeper into the trees of a topic or to take a step back to see the forest better.

Whether you’re an established or emerging author, we’re here to help you navigate the publishing process and pursue the full potential of your manuscript.

Author Support

Asynchronous Communication

We make sure to be available as possible for our authors, and asynchronous communication through Slack is a big part of that. We’re generally available for authors to get in touch throughout the workday, since being on Slack is part of our team working norms anyway. Our workspace also offers the unique opportunity for our authors to connect with each other.

Content Organizer

We’re strong believers in the content organizer for planning and writing books. If you’re a fan of outlines, we mean no disrespect here. Outlines are… okay. But content organizers can hold a lot more details in a less overwhelming and much more functional way.

Developmental and Content Editing

In the developmental stage, we help our authors be as thorough as possible in what they communicate, looking for opportunities to expand or clarify. In content editing, we help authors be as clear as possible in how they communicate, suggesting specific rewrites while maintaining the author’s voice.

At d’Aulnoy Editions, we believe that knowledge should be shared. Whether you’re one of our authors or you’re working with another publisher, we hope our articles on writing and publishing can help you achieve your goals for your book.

Author Guides

We’ve created guides for our authors to help them to independently access important knowledge and resources we believe they either need to know or, at some point, may need to refer back to.

Our Authors

D’Aulnoy Editions partners with authors from a variety of fields to share their stories and knowledge with our readers. At our sister imprint, How2Conquer, we’ve worked with authors from a range of different backgrounds, from high‑level corporate executives to experienced volunteers, and veterinarians to school board members. We’ve been lucky to find authors whose passion for their subject naturally translates into approachable, reassuring, and inspiring writing. 

Our authors generally come to us because they are working on a book they think could help people, but publishing can be difficult to navigate. We support them throughout the publishing journey, from developing a manuscript to helping build their platform and marketing efforts.

Rights and Metadata Management icon

Rights & Metadata Management

Metadata – or “data about data” – at its most basic level is how people find books. From categories to keywords, we monitor your book metadata for the life of the book. All books receive ISBNs and a Library of Congress number, and we apply for the copyright registration in your name.
