When I hired her to help me publish my book, I was nervous and didn’t have a big vision for the book. I thought I would only quietly release an ebook. She encouraged me to think bigger. To dream bigger. To tell the world my story because so many people needed to hear it and not just my inner circle. Chisom guided me through the final manuscript by making sure my messages were clear, my voice and personality shined through on paper, and helped me gain confidence to know that my book was worthy enough to be published. She was simply amazing throughout the entire process. If you are thinking about writing and publishing a book and don’t know where to start or to do next, definitely schedule a consultation with Chisom. She can walk you through the process and ensure you have a successful book launch." - Ellington Darden, Author, Still Living Longer Stronger "I highly recommend working with Chisom for your book project. This was my first book project and I didn't know the end to end process of how to turn a manuscript into a published book and then to launch it on Amazon and IngramSparks. Chisom explained how it all worked and was very, very patient with myself and my team throughout the entire project. She excels at book editing, proofreading, communication and delivering a very high quality book. I would definitely use her again for any future book projects." Clement DeCrop, Author, The Idea Space: "Chisom was able to execute a super difficult, image heavy (200+) project. There were bumps in the road, but she was able to push through those challenges and deliver a great final product. If you are looking for someone to help coach you or format a book, then Chisom is your person!" I look forward to helping you create a polished, successful book from start to finish! #kindle #ebook #epub #mobi #Amazon #Smashwords #Lulu #KDP #bookdesign #printlayout #book #PDF #ebookdesign #bookpublishing #logo #Indesign #Ingramspark #eBookconversion #eBookformatting #Childrenbooks #typesetting #booklayout #illustrations

    I have been involved in publishing as an author, editor, book designer, and publisher for over 15 years. I consider myself an expert in self-publishing for both print and eBook formats. I have extensive knowledge of Amazon KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing), Smashwords, IngramSpark, Lulu, and other print and eBook platforms. I have published over 400 print and eBooks on my accounts, plus countless books with clients. I offer page design, eBook conversions, editing and proofreading, and extensive self-publishing knowledge that can take your project from draft to publication. I often take on a project management role for my clients, offering book shepherding, helping hire cover designers, and going through the many options and considerations of being an independent author or small publisher. I operated, promoted, edited, and funded Leaf Garden Press for over 10 years, where we published 20+ books alongside an arts and literature magazine. I have worked with many other small presses on similar projects as an editor, designer, and publishing consultant focusing on fiction, creative non-fiction, and poetry. My publication credits include three books (not including 50+ ghostwritten books), several anthologies, and about 40-50 appearances in online and print magazines. I also produce and publish books based on market research and Amazon product page optimization techniques. Although I do not offer sales guarantees, I bring what I know about the Amazon system to each job. I am always onboarding new clients, love working with new authors, and strive to provide a personalized experience that meets the need of each book project and client. --- Availability: I do my best to make myself available to my clients on a regular schedule of Monday-Friday, 9AM-5PM PST. --- Publishing, Formatting, and Book Design Services: I offer page design for print books, and I have a high-level understanding of print-on-demand requirements, limitations, and considerations. And If you're working with offset printers, all I need is the specifications your printer requires. I also offer eBook conversions for Kindle and ePub formats, which are typically appropriate for any distribution method. --- Self-publishing Suggestion: For the print edition, I generally suggest Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing, the most direct route to having your print book sold via Amazon, the world's largest online retailer of books. If you are seeking wider distribution, we can simultaneously work with IngramSpark. However, not every book project is the same, and sometimes my advice may lead you to other printing and distribution options. Kindle Direct Publishing will have your print book and Kindle eBook released on Amazon. If you wish to expand eBook distribution outside of Amazon Kindle, I generally suggest using IngramSpark or Smashwords. Both will distribute your book to Apple (iBooks), Barnes and Noble (Nook), Kobo, and many other retailers. This keeps the process simpler than trying to submit the book to each retailer individually and helps alleviate some of the overhead costs involved with certain retailers. I can effectively walk you through the entire self-publishing process: from editing to formatting to ISBNs, copyrights, LCCNs, categories and keywords, submissions, and more. I can be your right-hand man. --- Editing Services: For editing and proofreading, I suggest the use of Microsoft Word's track changes features or the use of commenting/annotations for PDFs. This allows you to personally review my suggestions or changes and decide if you want to accept them. Editing and proofreading include checking sentence structure, grammar, punctuation, spelling, formatting errors, and much more. I am not able to accept all editing/proofreading work, and I will be honest if I do not believe I'm a good fit on your particular manuscript. I pride myself on standing behind my work, and I am always happy to discuss your project and my edits (even if I've already been paid). --- Free Consultation: Are you confused or unsure what you really need? No worries! I offer free consultation on any publishing projects. I'll go as far as taking a look at your book or other projects and tell you my initial thoughts on what your project needs. So even if you don't hire me, I can happily point you in the right direction and help educate you about the process. --- Rates: I will provide an itemized estimate before any work begins. This typically includes a final price range, and as long as no new work is added, we do not go over the top price of my bid. I will need to see your book or project as it exists and discuss a general idea of what services you require. If needed, I can sign a non-disclosure agreement first. --- Thanks for your consideration! Is there anything I haven't covered here? Simply contact me, and there's a good chance I can help you!

    I'm a professional publishing consultant, editor, and writing coach with years of experience in the publishing industry. When working with you, my mission is to be your go-to collaborator for your project by remaining highly focused on your needs and by providing high-quality deliverables tailored to your project's goals. We can begin working together at any stage of your publishing journey as my skills and services include writing coaching, beta reading, editorial assessments, developmental editing, copyediting, proofreading, and publishing consulting. Having worked at two university presses, I have experience with manuscripts of all types including fiction, nonfiction, poetry, short stories, business, and education. As a freelancer, I've also worked with fantasy, romance, crime fiction, and other commercial genres. I also have a BFA in Creative Writing and an MA in Management in the Creative Economy. As your editor, I'm dedicated to helping you develop high-quality content that meets all of your goals. I understand the effort that goes into your writing and your desire for your content to be the very best it can be. Therefore, my deliverables include not only the edited manuscript but also edit reports and collaborative revision hours that are all focused on elevating your manuscript. As your publishing consultant, I can guide you through the digital and print publishing process to deliver your content successfully, all while building your author or company brand. Together, we'll navigate your project through the independent, hybrid, or traditional publishing landscapes. I can develop a strong publishing strategy for your content and aid with project management for various steps of the process—from performing market research to executing sales strategies. As your writing coach, I can guide you through the writing process by providing exercises and techniques. I can identify the weaknesses and strengths of your writing and then provide solutions for how to eliminate those weak points and enhance your strengths. My goal is to be someone you can bounce your writing ideas off of and someone who supports and challenges you as a writer. If you're interested in working with me or have any questions, just send me a message telling me about your project and we'll go from there! Types of editing: Developmental Editing A developmental edit focuses on the big-picture elements of your content such as plot, character development, pacing, narrative, etc. For nonfiction books, it focuses on the structure of your content, what objectives need to be met by each section, delivery, etc. If your content is completed but hasn't undergone any revision yet, a developmental edit is where you want to start. When doing a developmental edit of your work, I provide you with a commented manuscript that highlights every suggested revision, edit report(s) with detailed explanations of issues and proposed solutions, and collaborative revision hours to discuss the edits. Line Editing Line editing is a high-level edit that focuses on the language, tone, pace, descriptions, voice, and writing style throughout the manuscript. A line edit includes a mix of direct edits and recommendations for additional content or cuts. When doing a line edit of your work, I provide you with an edited version (using MS Word track changes so you can review the edits) and a style sheet for the specific terminology used in your work (adhering to the Chicago Manual of Style). Copyediting A copyedit focuses on the readability of your content by correcting for grammar, inconsistencies, awkward phrasing, sentence structure, repetitions, etc. When doing a copyedit of your work, I provide you with an edited version (using MS Word track changes so you can review the edits) and a style sheet for the specific terminology used in your work (adhering to the Chicago Manual of Style). Proofreading Proofreading focuses on correcting typos, spelling, punctuation, and other small errors. This is the last phase of editing. When proofreading your content, I provide you with an edited version (using MS Word track changes so you can review the edits) and a style sheet for the specific terminology used in your work (adhering to the Chicago Manual of Style).

    Hi, I’m George Verongos. I’m here to help you publish your book project :) After ten years of teaching secondary English and Creative Writing, I started Literary Services in 2010 to help authors navigate the waters of publishing. I provide authors and publishers with the services and support they need from development to publication. Each manuscript is assessed and reviewed. If I can be of service, I will provide you with an exact quote. Please be prepared to share a couple of chapters and your total word count. DEVELOPMENT CRITIQUE W/ NOTES: I thoroughly review the development elements of your manuscript and suggest next steps to get you to the substantive editing phase. FULL EDIT: includes (substantive line editing, and final proofreading for organization, flow, readability, story/content structure, character development, setting development, plot and storyline analysis, grammar & usage, spelling, word choice, flow, ease of understanding, sentence structure, consistent POV, subject-verb agreement, etc.) LAYOUT & FORMATTING: including both print & eBooks. CUSTOM ORIGINAL COVERS: (paperback, hardback, eBook, and audiobook) SCREENPLAY ADAPTATION: (turn your book into a screenplay) I would love to have a look at your work, so I can see if I can be of any help.

    "By far the best ghost writer I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with... My advice is to stop scrolling through Upwork right now and hire this amazing ghost-writer." "Alethea is an incredibly talented writer and really such a nice, communicative and down to earth person to work with. She has a strong vision and creativity and clearly cares about her client’s happiness with her work." Have you noticed that suddenly everyone's copy is sounding the same? AI is supposed to revolutionise the way we do business but don't believe the hype. AI may be able to work fast , but your potential clients and readers don't care how quickly you wrote something. They care about how you make them feel. They want to know you can solve their problems. They want the reassurance of knowing they're in safe hands with you. They want to know you care about getting them results. A computer can't give that reassurance. All it does is take what's already out there and regurgitate the same old, same old. How can you stand out from the crowd when you're echoing everyone else? What's more, you can't copywrite work that has been AI generated. While you might think you're saving time and money by going the AI route, you could be setting yourself up for an expensive fall. Your clients deserve better - and so do you. As an experienced writer of over a decade, I know exactly how to use words to achieve the one goal all businesses care about: increasing your bottom line. I write from experience, which means I'll never give you text scraped from the internet and paraphrased. Instead, I'll create original material that brings a fresh approach to your subject. Whether you want to build a publishing house or grow your business (and I've worked with a broad range of industries), you know you'll stand out from the crowd. I'll communicate your USP so your prospective clients understands just why they need you and your services. I understand how to craft a blurb that compels someone to pick up your book. I know how to write a fiction or non-fiction book so it's unlike anything else on the market. I have the skills to put together landing pages, emails, websites, etc. that convert and support your business goals. You need to stand out for all the right reasons. I'll make it happen. Let's talk. You need the human touch. You need to show that there's a person behind your business and you're not yet another get-rich-quick, soulless company looking for the fastest route to make money. That’s where I come in. I take the time to truly understand your business and target market. You can trust me to capture your corporate image and present you in the best possible light to meet your goals. Whether you want to attract new clients, promote products or simply raise your profile, I’ve got the skills you need. I'll help you maximise the impact of your corporate copy so your business sees the results you want. My services are all tailored towards ensuring you get text that truly represents your brand. I specialise in: * Non-fiction books that establish authority and provide genuine value to the reader * Engaging, gripping fiction * Web content * Taglines / Titles * Voice over scripts * Article writing * Blogging * Creative consulting I understand the importance of consistent branding and the need to work in line with your mission statement, as well as how to effectively promote your USP to your audience. I know how to connect with your dream clients and build connection with them so you're their go-to person/business. What’s more, I have ideas. Lots of them. If you need help with a concept or theme or you just don’t know where to start, I can give you plenty of options to choose from. Don’t like choosing? Don’t worry! I’ll guide you through the process and make it easy for you to make the right decisions for your business. I appreciate how hard it can be to find just the right freelancer when the choice can seem overwhelming. I'm always available to talk you through your options and discuss your business goals to ensure you get exactly what you need first time, every time. That’s why so many of my clients keep coming back to me for all their copywriting needs. So if you want to make the right impression on your current and potential customers, click the button at the top right hand side of the page and invite me to submit a proposal to you. I'll be more than happy to discuss your project. I look forward to hearing from you!

    We focus on helping authors self-publish their books. Our services include manuscript evaluation, editing and proofreading, and translations (native fluency in English and Spanish). Once the manuscript is finalized, we design (format, style and typeset) book interiors for print, code and test e-books, and create/convert book covers. We also upload files or provide technical support, as needed, for online distribution including Amazon (Kindle/KDP), Barnes and Noble, Draft2Digital/Smashwords Premium Catalogue, iBooks, Ingram Sparks, Lulu and others. File format deliverables: ePub, MOBI, KPF, PDF, RTF. For over a decade we have helped clients create legacy projects (personal memoirs preserving family histories, cookbooks, and spiritual testimonials). But our authors also cover the gamut of genres and categories including fiction (literary novels, sci-fi and fantasy, short stories and poetry collections), and non-fiction (business/legal, health and wellness, travel, and self-help guides). We occasionally also consult on other aspects of publishing and help brainstorm actionable tasks to make your book project a success.

    I am pleased to discuss and schedule edits in advance! It's highly recommended that you contact me at least 90 days before your preferred deadline. I am currently scheduled through March 15, 2023. My clients include indie writers, first-time novelists seeking agent representation, memoirists and activists, two sisters publishing their late mother's book, a romance author with 10+ novels, and multiple finalists in international short story competitions. With a thorough yet encouraging style, I edit fiction in all genres, as well as articles, creative nonfiction, and memoirs. "I can't say enough about the timely and thorough manuscript evaluation I received from Therese. Her detail-oriented critique not only provided me with invaluable suggestions with regards to the overall structure of my story but, just as important, also touched upon how to fine-tune the subtle aspects of my novel to create a more superior read. I look forward to utilizing her skill set again during the editing phase." -Alex F. COPYEDITING With a Copyediting Certificate from the University of San Diego-Extension Program, I work from a thorough knowledge of the Chicago Manual of Style, while flexibly accommodating author preferences. LINE-BY-LINE EDITING Going beyond grammatical corrections, I analyze your message and tailor your writing for clear, vivid flow of ideas. My feedback evaluates pacing, content, and word choice. "Therese copyedited my novel and did a great job. She offered many helpful suggestions and continues to respond to questions in a timely manner. I highly recommend Therese Arkenberg if you need fast and accurate editing." -Michael E. Kmiotek DEVELOPMENTAL EDITING My inline comments include feedback on plot and character development. For a deeper evaluation of plot and character arcs and overall style, I provide 3-8 page Developmental Memos. These can be done before line edits, since a story may change in development. "The memo alone is like a writing seminar targeted at my particular story. Therese Arkenberg' insights and editing skills were nothing short of remarkable. She seemed to know my characters better than I did. I was most fortunate to have found her." -T. Hahm PUBLISHING STRATEGY Find anthologies, journals, and contests. Research literary agents and prepare your query letter and synopsis. Build a strategy to promote your work. Format manuscripts for self-publishing on Createspace or Lulu, Kindle, Smashwords, and other distributors. TIMEFRAME Based on my current schedule and the needs of a particular project, short stories can take as little as 48 hours, novels between two weeks and two months. CLIENT TESTIMONIALS: Jeff Jorczak (Cody Leet): "Therese was one of the beta readers for my new novel Spheria. The depth of her analysis and feedback were invaluable. She caught some very subtle continuity issues that I had not even thought of. Her love of sci-fi and technology also helped me in particular since this book was heavy on science. Last, the detail of her notes was amazing...I already asked her if we could working together again on my future projects. (and if you use her as a result of this recommendation, I get first dibs!)" Alero Dabor: “I do not think I would have completed my memoirs without Thesere. From the moment I started working with Therese, she has offered invaluable suggestions that empowered my story. Her understanding of what I was striving to achieve is truly commendable. Therese is an exceptional editor. I will recommend Therese to anyone I know who is looking for an editor.” Cynthia "Cyn" Duby: "I was very leery of hiring an editor and now I don't know what to do without one! And, there will never be another editor for me than Therese. She is extremely thorough, makes excellent suggestions, and has tightened up my novel, improved the way the story arcs, and has given me, not only global suggestions, but also incredible line by line edits. My writing has vastly improved and my confidence has grown immensely. She not only is a very talented writer and editor, but she also knows the business and, knowing that I seek publishing, has that in her mind when editing and when we correspond. My manuscripts will never leave home without her expert eye catching my errors, my repeated phrasing, and cutting the unnecessary words and confusing phrasing...Be prepared for corrections, be prepared to hear that there are changes, and then smile knowing every change, every edit is making your work the very best it can be." Zahara Heckscher: "Therese is a talented writer and editor. I highly recommend her for manuscript review. She provided essential big picture suggestions for my novel with excellent ideas for conflict and character development as well as a close read with page by page comments to improve the draft. She made excellent and specific suggestions that improved my novel—and helped me strengthen my craft as a writer."

    I've been at this writing game for a long, long time--over 40 years, to be exact. I've won national writing contests, published books with small presses, been the "go-to" editor for fast-turnaround "quick books" at a major publisher, and, of course, helped dozens of individual writers to become better authors. I'm the pickiest of the picky, a crackerjack speller, and The Grammarian About Whom Your Mother Warned You. I do need to say here, however, because there have been MANY clients who don't understand this: I AM NOT A GHOSTWRITER. I have done ghostwriting in the past, but I don't do it anymore. So if you're looking for someone to write books for you, under your name...please .look elsewhere. :-) Other than that...if you want the best TLC your book can get, look no further. The Book Magician is here!
