Overview

High class writing (of books, e-books, and feature articles), editing (likewise), manuscript formatting (for CreateSpace and Kindle), cover design and other publishing assistance services.

I might not be the cheapest, but I aim to be the best. Or, as one of my clients put it, "I really appreciate your work now that I've tried the others!"

My proposition is simple:

I will do exactly what I say I will do, when I say I will do it. I won't even pitch for your project if I don't think I can do it, so you can be confident that you won't have to...

I've also helped shape the odd "memoir" along the way.

In former lives, I have been an IT consultancy practice manager, an associate...
