How can I help you?

Let me count the ways…

1. Ghostwriting

Ready to make your blog, book or e-book a reality? If you’re lacking the time or skills
to do it, I can help.

2. Editing

You write it.
I restructure, polish and tweak it.
Let me just sharpen my pencil…

3. Proofreading

Your writing’s excellent and thorough,
but you’d love it checked for those inevitable, pesky errors.

4. Visual Content

Images are a must-have for web and print.
I source, curate, edit, prepare,
(and, if needs be, clear copyright for)
the best images for your project.

5. Retainers and Payment Plans

Q: How do you benefit from retainers or payment plans?
A: You always know your weekly
or monthly expense for my work.
I deliver your project in stages.

Ghostwriting

It could be a cathartic memoir. A brilliant theory begging to be told. An executive contribution to a prestigious publication. A legacy project for your family.

Transforming what’s inside your head into reality takes skill and time. Hiring a ghostwriter is an investment, and not to be undertaken lightly.

If you’re serious about getting it done but you don’t know how to go about it, I can help.

I ghostwrite for corporate, business and private clients, in online, e-book and print formats.

Ghostwriting is a process: I walk you through the process, outline the steps and draw a project roadmap. We work as a team.

Above all, I ensure your voice is retained and you’re always the acknowledged author.

No matter what you need ghostwritten, my job is to lighten your load, bring structure, and make your writing sing. 

Time to get it out of your head and into reality?

Editing

When would editing be a good option for you?

  • You’re a ‘waffler’ and your writing always needs culling
  • You write in science, tech or business jargon
  • You assume your readers understand as much as you do
  • Your ideas or expertise are extraordinary but your grammar and spelling are… well, ordinary
  • You know your story inside-out but your writing’s a mess

Most of us can’t see what’s amiss in our written material.

As your editor, I spot the gaps that need bridges, engineer your structure, clean up messy grammar, and tune the tone. Your personal style stays intact.

Editing’s a great way to achieve polished writing that makes readers want to continue.

You provide the ideas and story. I’ll polish it so you don’t have to.

After all your hard work, let’s ensure your project shines.

Proofreading

You don’t need to hire me as a writer or editor to benefit from my proofreading skills. Just call me in at the end and set me loose.

After years of experience in publishing and design, proofreading is the bane of my life.

Wait, what…?

You read it right. I can’t read a novel or a news-feed without spotting the typos, or glitches in letter-spacing and grammar.

And I’d bet money there’s no book or website on this planet that doesn’t have a typo or spacing error in it, somewhere.

Yours (and mine) will too. It’s a Universal Law. But we can minimise them, a lot.

Even the best writers, editors and yes, proof-readers, shake their heads at the one that got away after ten people checked it.

Regardless of my proofreading ‘affliction’, you benefit, because what’s within my power to correct will be corrected.

Visual Content

Great images work as hard for you as quality writing works. Combine the two and pow! you have a marriage made in heaven.

I find images that enhance your project, resulting in the whole being greater than the sum of the parts.

My experiences as a med-sci illustrator, a graphic designer, and an image content coordinator for an award-winning publisher means I’ve the skills to make your visual content shine.

I find your images via commissioned, bespoke, stock, or archival sources. I can also select from your own photo library. If you’re compiling a personal memoir or tribute, I help you choose and edit the best images for your work.

With expertly curated images, your project steps up to the next level.

A picture does more than tell a thousand words.

Ready for the magical combo…?

Retainers and Payment Plans

With a payment plan, you’ll pay an agreed regular amount while we take your project to completion, chapter by chapter.

A retainer agreement suits an ongoing blog schedule. We agree upon the number and frequency of posts (and their length) for a given period. You pay a regular, fixed payment for me to ghostwrite them, according to that schedule.

No more surprise quotes or overblown budgets. No need to keep stalling your book or blog project.

Imagine high quality written material being presented to you on a regular basis for a set expense.

Your payment agreement is tailored to suit your circumstances. You may use PayPal linked to your credit/debit card or bank account, or pay by automatic direct bank transfer.

You’ll have peace of mind, knowing I’ll deliver what you need, when you need it. Available for your ongoing blog, memoir, book or other long-term ghostwritten or editing project.

Sound like your kind of peace of mind?
