Expedition Offerings


With ghostwriting, I work closely with you to turn your rough ideas into a finished, polished manuscript.

Manuscript Critique

A diagnostic evaluation of a manuscript that includes a detailed report discussing strengths, areas for improvement, level of edit recommended, and specific action steps.

Developmental Editing

The book is complete but needs significant revision. This service includes close collaboration with you in successfully revising to reach the book’s potential.

Developmental Writing

The book is at least 50% complete, but substantial portions need to be written. This service includes both creation of content and thorough editing.


You are interested in more than the product—you want to learn the process. While collaborating on your book, we will hone your craft as a writer and self-editor.


I believe in supporting the next generation of creative thinkers and periodically offer semester-long fiction classes for young writers.

The Books Speak for Themselves (almost)

Operations Compromised continues to be an “Amazon Bestseller.” Much of the success is directly attributable to Dr. Tim Boswell, who helped make a good story better. I would highly recommend Dr. Boswell’s services. He makes the process enjoyable and I like working with him.

Operations Compromised

Tim Boswell helped take my book, The Kilgore Curse, from a disorganized manuscript to a thrilling completed novel with over fifty 5-star Amazon reviews. Besides that, he is a humble person and a pleasure to work with. Tim, you are indeed ‘the man.’ I wouldn’t want anyone else editing my novel. Hope we get to work together again soon.

The Kilgore Curse

When embarking on something new it can often seem like a daunting endeavor.  The climb can seem insurmountable and the steps to complete your journey can be fuzzy and unclear. This is where having support and guidance can be a major asset. When I decided to write a book, I felt all the previous emotions. I had no idea of how I would even start and if I could even successfully put pen to paper and get it done. In came Tim Boswell and instantly I felt that his care and attention to his clients was number one. He not only guided me through the entire writing process, but he also held my feet to the fire and provided me with accountability in order for me to get it done according to a predetermined timetable.  As of today, I am proud to say that I am now a published author.  I would definitely and whole-heartedly recommend Tim for your writing and coaching needs.

About your guide

When he was a kid, Timmy Boswell played with toy dinosaurs, He-Man, and G.I. Joes like the other boys—except his play involved writing out elaborate stories about their adventures. This love of words later carried him through a bachelor’s in writing through interdisciplinary studies (magna cum laude), a master’s in creative writing (4.0 GPA), and a Ph.D. in creative writing (with distinction).

Going by Tim now—or Dr. Boswell to some—he works full-time as the managing editor for the international, peer-reviewed scholarly journal Studies in the Novel, and he previously worked as managing editor for American Literary Review. He has taught 16 sections of university-level writing courses, teaches writing privately, and has collaborated with authors on over two dozen published books. He lives in Fort Worth, Texas, with his wife and three sons.
