Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $38

I am an award-winning author. Founding editor of two magazines. Successful online retailer. And IBM Corporate Marketing Communications named me their "Top Gun." In addition to nine books, I have written dozens of financial, professional and high-tech newsletters; 100s of magazine articles; and brochures, booklets and magalogs ranging from insurance and accounting to software and consumer goods.

Because I believe in my prospective customers, I educate them rather than overwhelm with sales hype. I share the information necessary to make good...

Service Description

I am a full-service, experienced professional who will give you 110 percent. I work for you, but I write for your audience--your readers, customers and clients. I will work closely with you to understand precisely the message you want to deliver, then write copy that presents that message in a style and form that they will understand, apply and enjoy reading.

I research my projects thoroughly, write clean copy that is edited and proofed. In the case of books, ebooks, white papers and longer writing projects, I do recommend you use an outside proofreader...just because it is always good to have a second set of eyes.

I am an idea person who enjoys helping to create a successful strategy. I take direction well, but if you don't know exactly what you want or how the project should proceed, I'm happy to create a project plan that works for you.

My pricing includes 2 rounds of revisions/edits. If you want more, I will bill at my hourly rate.

I will keep you informed throughout the project. I will give regular status reports and updates. And throughout the project, I am always available to talk...via Skype or phone...and, of course, email.
