Service Description

OVERVIEW OF PROFESSIONAL SERVICES OFFERED
Niama Leslie J. Williams, Ph.D.
Long Beach, California, USA

I bring my 17+ years as a professor of literature and composition to the table when I create, critique, proofread, edit, ghostwrite, and evaluate manuscripts. I seek opportunities to proofread, edit (content, line, and developmental), create blog posts, and ghostwrite (especially memoirs).

I know first-hand both the pleasure and pain of writing; I can tell what might be getting in the way of clearly telling your story and I can help you create buzz about your products and/or services.

I happily work with individual writers, small business owners, solopreneurs, non-profits, and larger companies, institutions, organizations, or corporate entities.

If you have written your book and need an evaluative review, I always read with an open mind and the expectation of pleasure. If your book is completed but your publisher or editor still sees problems, come to me: I will happily help you SOLVE those problems and get your editor or publisher racing to print your manuscript.

I can help you make that leap from writer with a manuscript to published author with book in hand; editing is my favorite task and line, content or development editing, as a former professor of literature, are my specialties.

Please feel free to contact me; I look forward to being of service!!!
