SERVICES

PUBLISHING SERVICES

As a novelist I know a good deal about how to get a book published, and I offer a full-service self-publishing package (or separate elements) to authors which takes their manuscript from Word document to physical and digital book. I get great deals with top cover designers and printers, and offer mentoring, editing, copyediting, proofreading, typesetting, book-launching and even book trailer videos. It's a joy turning new writers into confident ambassadors of their books, and leading them to that most precious commodity – readers. I work using both Affinity and Adobe publishing software

PRESS AND MEDIA SERVICES

Do you need someone to rely on for a quick, short press release to the local papers? Or an indepth pitch to a national newspaper? Having worked for many years as a professional newspaper subeditor I can help you navigate the press and media. Are you working on a podcast or promotional video and need someone to look at your script, or edit your audio/video and maybe add background music as well? I work using Apple Final Cut Pro for video and Logic Pro professional music composition software for the broadcast-quality spoken voice and background music. With digital access to the best orchestras and session instrument soloists, I create audio and video products of professional quality

PUBLIC RELATIONS SERVICES

Spreading the word requires first identifying the right words to spread. Some of the services I offer include website text-writing, specialised media content creation, blog editing, social-media posting, trade publication article ghost-writing. Clients I've worked with include pensions management companies, national legal firms, global fintech innovators and thriving local businesses. All of these stake their reputations on getting their words factually precise, highly relevant and extremely well expressed to their target audience

DIGITAL MARKETING SERVICES

I work with digital marketing agencies on category and product descriptions for clients. This requires keyword research and optimization and the creation of website text that is focused, engaging and useful, not only because that's what people want but also so Google's bots can spot top-quality and nicely updated web-page text and move the page nearer the top 5 on page 1 of the search results. Writing website category and product descriptions that feel uniquely fresh and "10x" better than the competition is what I do. I use a variety of SEO tools

ACADEMIC SERVICES

I offer academic text editing and assessment and am comfortable working on content relating to any specialism. Are you looking to publish a research paper in a journal and need a fresh pair of eyes on it before submission of the pitch? Are you a PhD student needing someone to tidy up your thesis or a post-doctoral academic working on a book? Or are you in the marketing department of a university needing to outsource a writing project to a freelance professional? I offer quick turnaround editorial services for all the above
