Service Description

I truly have a passion and adoration for writing. Below are my specific strengths in different writing genres.

Ghostwriting/novels

I love writing novels. My personal favorite writing is creative, for I love working with a story and turning it into something enthralling, encapsulating, and addictive. Whether you have a really solid draft or just a broad stroke of an idea, I can write a fiction novel for you.

As far as non-fiction goes, my specialty is business, marketing, and social media. If you need a book written on other content that needs more specific research, I can do that as well.

I do NOT require a co-author label. If you want to be the author, no problem! If you have no problem with a co-author label, the appropriate lower rate applies.


Article Writing

Article writing is my most common and widely assigned task. I write articles for my own blog, accompanying blogs, and purely fun on a daily basis. I cover all sorts of topics in a variety of mediums. Don’t worry- any article I write for hire will NOT be used on my personal blogs or used in ANY fashion other than writing the content for YOU to do as you please.


Transcriptions

I also transcribe, and have been doing so for quite some time. I accept audio that is nice and clean or messy and confusing. Whether it is 2 minutes of a YouTube video or a four hour conference among 40 people, I will transcribe it appropriately.


Copywriting/Editing


As a writer, I find great satisfaction in reading and...
