~Editing and Proofreading: I used to edit books full time, but now I am very busy with publishing and writing, so I usually have my fabulous editors and proofreaders handle my clients’ editing work. I trust them also with all of my own books, so you can rest assured that they will do an excellent job.

~Coaching: Want to write or publish your novel but have no idea how, or just need some help with getting more eBook sales? Let me use my experience to help you. I have published and marketed two of my own bestselling books and can do the same for you! I offer free phone call sessions to those who are seriously thinking about hiring me. This allows us to see if we are a good fit and will help you decide if you’d like to hire me to help you with your book.

~Writing/Ghostwriting: Don’t know how or don’t have time to write or finish your novel or article, or do you need help writing parts of your book? Let me handle it for you. My rates on this vary depending on the project.

~Guest posting: I would love to guest post on your blog!

~Marketing:

Are you an author looking to sell more copies of your book on Amazon? Or maybe you are you launching a new book soon?

I do press releases through Skyranker which is a part of PressCable. This press release submits the article I write for you to 1,000 top-notch news websites like NBC, Fox, and CBS. On average, 300+ of these sites will publish your article, making it easier for you be interviewed on your local news.

We also do custom marketing packages that are tailored for you based on your goals for your book and your budget.

Why should you trust me with your precious masterpiece? I know what it’s like to spend months or years on a manuscript and then email it to someone you’ve never even met. It’s like giving your child to a babysitter you know nothing about! (Well, not quite, but you get the idea.)
