I am a designer, writer and editor. I understand how to pair visuals and information, for readers and non-readers alike, while guiding the eye to the important factors of any design. I can write and edit in nearly every format and style book, and I absolutely love what I do.
I have past experience designing book covers, promotional posters and banners, social media images, logos, brochures, infographics, calendars, e-newsletters, and more.
I can copy edit in five stylebooks at an experienced level: APA, AP, MLA, Chicago, and AMA. Thanks to this, I can edit in any style you would like (standard for books is Chicago, and I use this by default). I have over five years experience with copy editing, including a year and a half experience as a copy chief and a year at a publishing company. Editing will run at a different rate from the hourly, however. Rather than charge you per-hour, which could become very expensive depending on the amount of editing requires, I charge per word, page, or manuscript -- whichever is more cost efficient for you.
Please contact me to price your next manuscript.
I have written three (so far) unpublished novels, and numerous short stories and plays, in the course of my graduate degree in professional writing, and would also be happy to ghost write for you. Ghost writing may incur additional research costs.
I also freelance as an article/blog writer and have written news, reviews, interviews, and medical articles as well as press releases, copy, and commercial scripts. I understand that, typically, article writing is priced per-word, so please contact me to offer a per-word or per-article bid. Otherwise, you will be billed per-hour.
I have studied writing in numerous styles, so I won't list them here, lest I forget one. The only formats I have yet to encounter professionally are technical writing and grant proposals, but with the experience I have in every other style (and my moderate science background -- computer science and physics), I believe I could handle one easily. If you consider me for one of these tasks, please contact me. Since it would be my first, I'd be happy to give you a discount.
Additionally, I have experience with event coordination for book and album signings, both copy and design experience with advertising, and freelance as a "front" of the back-end organizer and editor. And, honestly, if you need a communications skill not on this short list, I can probably help you there as well.
So, save time and hire one person to do your next re-branding or editing, cover, and promotions for your next book. I will always be honest, hard-working, and eager to learn and create the absolute best product for you.
Thank you for considering me for your freelance communication needs.
