The Gold Pen is an editorial & proofreading service in which the editor will scrutinize the manuscript from top to bottom. Those parts, sentences or words considered in need of change, will be marked, commonly by a comment from the editor, for the author to look through and change themselves. Thus the manuscript won't change anything without the author being aware of it. This feedback procedes continuosly from the beginning to the end, together with you.
Summarized, The Gold Pen involves everything to make the manuscript ready for evolving into a book.
The intended result is that all the manuscripts undergoing The Gold Pen will be most elaborate and professional.
We only offer a limited amount of manuscripts The Gold Pen and therefore the slots might already be filled, or will be filled eventually. You can always mail us at email@example.com to ask when the next slot will be available.
The Ghost Pen is an offer we have for those scripts that don’t exist yet. If you have an idea or desire to make a book or a memoir, but don't want to write it yourself and need professional help, we can help you for sure.
It will be done with interviews and close contact with you all through the project. The book, memoir or whatever you want to write, is yours after the project but written by a professional writer. Co-writing is also an option.
The easiest way to find out more about The Ghost Pen is to contact us, as different projects will have different solutions.

Linda Svendsen started our publishing house in a basement in Autumn 2013, with only one person managing everything. It didn't take long until our very first manuscript dropped in our e-mail. The name on the script was "Som att ta av sig sina sandaler" and the script is now published in the name "Vägen till El Faouar"
After a very short time in that basement, we left the house and bought a camper. Where we started a journey of a lifetime. We successfully ran our publishing business in the camper and traveled through a number of countries. We stayed in Denmark for about two months, France for nine, Spain for six and Portugal for three. On that journey, we published two books and signed up for several new author contracts. Our business grew and new ideas were processed and one person became two, when Ted joined the business. Ted is Linda's son.
After living and running a business in a camper for almost 2 years, we decide to settle down, to have a headquarter for the business, in Denmark. Here we first rented a house and continued our growing business. This is where we published "The Road to El Faouar".
After one year in the rented house, we bought our own farm. It is located in a peaceful nature that we currently are renovating. Our plans are big and our patience is bigger. The farm is just a short trip outside the popular and busy city, Frederikshavn, with connection to both Sweden, Norway, and Europe. This is a good spot to run an international business.
Between 2013-2020 we have publiched seventeen books in twenty-six different forms.
As you understand our passion is language, travel, history, books, and stories. We are the publishing house that is growing very strong and has no rush to be big. We have just getting started.
We read and publish manuscripts in English, Swedish and Danish.
We are always reachable by e-mail. You can also book a phone meeting if needed.
Scripts are only received by e-mail.
To book events, etc. for our authors, write to us and tell us about your event. We sell our books all over the world and have book storage in Sweden and Denmark.
Lange Forlag has inspiration from solid geological research, dating back to the 900s! We are very proud of our history!
Our oldest ancestor, Gorm the old (also Vurm) was born sometime in the late 800s and died in 958. Gorm was the first official king of Denmark and ruled from 936 to 958. (Gorm’s father was probably Knud I Hardeknut) Gorm ruled the land from Jelling. Gorm married Thyra Danebod from England and was the father of Knud Gormsson (Knud Dana-Ast), Harald Bluetooth and Gunhild Gormsdotter.
Gorm raised one of the Jelling Stones in honor of his wife.
Written on the stone; “ᚴᚢᚱᛘᛦ ᚴᚢᚾᚢᚴᛦ ᚴ(ᛅᚱ)ᚦᛁ ᚴᚢᛒᛚ ᚦᚢᛋᛁ ᛅ(ᚠᛏ) ᚦᚢᚱᚢᛁ ᚴᚢᚾᚢ ᛋᛁᚾᛅ ᛏᛅᚾᛘᛅᚱᚴᛅᛦ ᛒᚢᛏ” The text on the stone has got two interpretations, partly “King Gorm made this stone after his wife Thyra, Denmark’s protector”, but also “King Gorm, Denmark’s protector, made this stone after his wife Thyra”.
Gorm is described as a cruel man and was highly hostile to all Christians. He planned to completely eradicate Christianity in Denmark. He expelled priests from his lands and also killed many under torture. However, this would change when his son, Harald Bluetooth, took over the kingdom. He introduced Christianity to Denmark, and also raised the second Jelling Stone, to the honor of his parents, celebrating his conquest of Denmark and Norway and his conversion of the Danes to Christianity.
In our family, women have been very strong and sometimes had rather great power. For example, legends says Queen Thyra made sure that Denmark was not invaded by extending the famous wall, Dannevirke. Grandmother, Erna Kirkegaard, did not let the German soldiers take supplies from her home during World War II. She had 9 children to take care of, and her husband Hans Peter Svendsen. But even though she was very strict towards the Germans, she felt sorry for the young boys fighting and therefore gave them food and shelter the family could spare. During the little spare time they had, Erna and Hans Peter practiced amateur theater.
