Services for writers

website management

For heaven’s sake, you’re a writer, not tech support! It’s okay. I actually AM tech support. I used to work the IT desk at an animation studio. Man, those were wild times.

Anyhoo, I can help with website tasks that you can’t, won’t or refuse to do. Things like:

  • update plugins
  • add or edit pages
  • reorganise sections
  • update menus, links and redirects
  • add email addresses
  • update images
  • add captions
  • and all that tedious other crap nobody wants to do.

 

Don’t have a website? No worries! I can make one for you. Among many others, I made this website right here 🙂

social media and virtual assistance

Social media is one of those things that you have to do even though you don’t necessarily want to.

Together, we draw up a group of topics that interest you and your followers. I’ll create and schedule social media posts, track engagement and make sure you look like you’re actually online sometimes.

I can also help with other time consuming tasks such as calendering, appointments, responding to queries, sending and following up invoices, and other general assistance.

content writing and seo

A good website needs to have quality, regular and up-to-date content. And your content needs to be well-written, error free, informative and optimised for SEO.

What a drag.

Fortunately for you, I am a content writing superstar. I don’t mean to brag… Okay, I’ll brag. I can write on any topic. Just throw it at me. It’s weird. It’s like my superpower.

So if you’re struggling to find the time (or the mental space) to write your own content, it’s all good. I can do it for you.

I’ve written (or ghostwritten) just about everything, including:

  • book blurbs
  • email newsletters
  • blog posts
  • white papers
  • ebooks
  • feature articles
  • podcast scripts
  • courses
  • landing pages
  • lead magnets
  • media releases
  • and much more.

reading and critiquing

Hooray! You’ve finished your FIRST draft!

You’ve put it away, had another read through, and now you are plagued with the following questions:

  • does it make sense?
  • is it consistent?
  • are the scenes in the right order?
  • is it any good?

I’ve been writing and editing fiction for more than 20 years – and reading it for much longer than that. I’ll look at your manuscript with fresh eyes and help you to see what’s working well, identify the weak spots, and give you actionable steps to get your draft to the next level.

If you’re already beyond your first draft, I can be your beta reader and provide you with a detailed report. I’m not a professional editor or proof reader, but I do point out any spelling, grammar and punctuation errors.

self-publishing and KDP

This is a very exciting time to be an author. Self-publishing is awesome.

I know it can be a little daunting. But trust me, there’s absolutely no reason to be daunted.

That’s why I’m here.

I can help you with your ISBNs, book cover, internal layout, keywords & categories, pricing, competition, blurb, tag line, author bio, front and back matter and oh, so much more.

I work with KDP (Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing), IngramSpark, Draft2Digital, Smashwords and other major aggregators.
