Rodney Miles launched Rodney Miles Book Creation as his own “Jerry Maguire” business model for collaborating with professionals, leaders, business people, and anyone who has dreamed of leaving a written legacy. He creates meticulous, professionally published non-fiction books. He will only be working with a few clients at any given time so they can focus on happily creating something you will be proud of the rest of your life. Rodney believes you must publish to prosper! He knows what having a published book can do for your career. Prior to this, he managed an in-house writing department for several years with great hand-picked writers, editors, and designers, with clients from around the world, to create over 200 published books, many Amazon best sellers. Rodney personally ghost-wrote over 50 of these and as much as he loved the work, he dreamed of going “boutique.” He offers a free initial consultation, whether you are starting with just an idea or you have a full manuscript. He is also the founder and editor-in-chief of a small publishing house called Bimini Books.
