In the A/E industry I’ve been a writer, marketing and business development representative.

I have extensive experience creating client proposals and writing press releases, design books, long-form articles, as well as content for social media, project, and product launches. While at BIG, I worked closely with the CCO during a year-long process to develop a branding and content strategy for the next evolution of the studio. Prior to my experience in the A/E industry, I worked for Chrysalis Editorial editing the manuscripts of fiction and nonfiction authors. I received a B.A. in English and Creative Writing and an M.A. in English from the George Washington University.

    Do you ask these questions as you write? • What resources and knowledge do I need to accomplish my goal? • What kind of tools do I need to complete my work? • What writing assignments will help me? • What books support my writing? • How does my writing read from the position of both classic texts and the modern world? • Has this been written before? • Who do I trust to help me? My specialties are: • Fiction • Thriller • Mystery • Romance • Fantasy • Horror • Science Fiction • Young Adult • Spirituality • Memoirs • Biographies Areas of expertise: • English • History • Mythology • Symbolism • Fiction Story Development • Narrative Structure With these skills, I have offered story coaching to: • Writers with little to no experience • New York Times best-selling authors • Small journal press • Self-published authors In the past 20 years of developmental editing, I have found Helen Keller’s words to resonate, “The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.” We can find your one-of-a-kind vision (North Star) by refining your style, process, and working framework. This is done by: • Tailoring your working frameworks • Individualized lesson plans • 1:1 coaching sessions in an open dialogue style • Writing assignments that help focus your mind and see your story from a new perspective From the birth of an idea to the end stage of a story ready for proofreading, I will walk you through the highs and lows and focus on the middle where productive and efficient work will be done.

    👋 Hello! My name is Amy Suto and I’m your new secret weapon. ;) I’m your Swiss army knife with top-tier writing credentials and 8 years of professional writing experience. 🗞️ PRESS: I’ve been featured in news outlets like the BBC, The LA Times, Forbes, and other publications. ✅ HERE ON UPWORK: I’m an Expert-Vetted and Top Rated Plus Freelancer and have rave reviews from my clients. Top Rated Plus means I’m in the top 1% of 12 million freelancers here on Upwork! I’ve made over $300,000+ on Upwork and am trusted by my clients to deliver great work, every time. 💻 MY BLOG: AmySuto.com ranks on the first page of Google for over 400+ of my target keywords — and I’ve replicated this blogging and content strategy success with many of my clients through high-quality ghostwriting and thoughtful keyword targeting! 🎥 MY BACKGROUND: I studied screenwriting at USC’s prestigious Writing for Screen and Television program and came up as a TV writer in Hollywood with credits on shows like CONDOR (MGM/Skydance) before becoming a full-time freelancer and traveling the world as a digital nomad. (I was just in Japan and Singapore and am now working remotely from Istanbul, Türkiye!) 👀 SECRET SAUCE: I bring a story-first sensibility to all of my work, elevating everyday copy and content to capture readers’ precious attention quickly. 📖 MY BOOKS: My nonfiction SIX-FIGURE FREELANCE WRITER book ranked #1 on Amazon New Releases and charted on the bestseller lists. My debut fiction book, THE NOMAD DETECTIVE: VOLUME I is also available for pre-orders on Amazon. ♥️ WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY "Extremely talented individual. Do you have an idea? Amy will make your idea, brand, and marketing come to life. She is the ultimate swiss army knife. Amy can do it all. On top of that, her work ethic and personality are unparalleled. Thank you, Amy!" "Hire Amy... that's all that needs to be said. Whatever copy materials that you are looking for, Amy will get it done at the highest caliber of quality. She is excellent with her communication, thorough research and she really knows how to nail exactly what you're looking for. My only advice is to provide her with as much detail as you possibly can and it'll produce the best results. I can tell that Amy prides herself on being the best in the business even if she would prefer to humble herself and say she's only ONE of the best. But no, She IS the best!” "If you are lucky enough to get a chance to work with Amy, grab it! She is a pleasure to work with, and quickly steered me in the right direction. The only way it could have been better is if I had found her a year earlier! Her communication is fantastic, she is reachable and makes herself available. She delivered everything ahead of schedule. Her insights have been invaluable. The best way to sum it up is that when I reviewed her details, I decided to pay 4 times what I had been planning to pay, and it was a very wise decision!" 🎬 MY BACKGROUND: WORKING IN HOLLYWOOD & WRITING BOOKS I came up as a TV writer in Hollywood, and co-wrote an episode of the show CONDOR (MGM/Skydance/Audience Network), along with various development projects. When I'm not writing for my clients, I'm a published author penning fiction and nonfiction books as well as writing for my popular blog.

    I taught high school English and Creative Writing for 12 years, and I always told my students that I was the most curious audience they would ever have. I loved helping them understand the potential in their projects, build on their strengths and trim away what they didn't need. As an editor, I'll listen to you to understand your concept and goals, and I'll give objective feedback based on the purpose, focus, specifics and organization in your project. I love helping people develop drafts into publishable work. I've consulted on or edited multimedia presentations; print anthologies; conference group materials; documentary and research projects; poetry, short fiction, and creative nonfiction, and a sci-fi novel manuscript. I'm comfortable working at any stage of the writing process, from early brainstorms and outlines to final revisions and formatting. As a writer, I use my creativity and curiosity to create detail-rich, well-structured content. I believe in strong ledes, action verbs and vivid descriptions. I combine a teacher's knowledge of storytelling and communication with a journalist's desire to seek truth and benefit their audience. I've written longform features, blog entries, social media content and audio scripts. I'm confident in my ability to do background research, assess the intended audience and communicate clearly. Here are some of my interests. - game design: systems, player interest and motivation, creation and innovation - reading fiction and nonfiction: most recently “Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow” by Gabrielle Zevin and “The Arm” by Jeff Passan - baseball: cultural history and impact; what defines a great team; names, logos and uniform design - soccer: cultural connections and explanations, creativity in team tactics - coffee: locally roasted, sourced from Central and South America - tabletop miniature painting: self-taught through YouTube plus trial and error for Gloomhaven, Dungeons & Dragons and Marvel United

    WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU? For leaders: I help you write, edit, publish, and market your books that influence. WHAT IS MY PROCESS? If you would like to be very involved in your book-writing process or hardly involved at all, I can give you your wish. Here's what to expect. + half-hour strategy session + half-hour simple book outline session with your writer + one-hour detailed book outline session with a book coach + 4-6 months of hard work by your writer + weekly half-hour progress meetings with your writer + a 40,000 - 60,000-word first draft + editing and revisions of your manuscript + a 40,000 - 60,000-word final draft + collaboration with a publishing company + collaboration with a book marketer WHOM HAVE I WORKED WITH IN THE PAST? I've worked with leaders to create books that showcase their expertise and create lasting positive change for their target audience. Here are some past clients: Junail Andersen, founder of the nonprofit Freedom from the Streets, tasked me to write a book about the homeless people she serves. The book is now being used by other organizations to teach volunteers about homelessness. Stanton Petersen, Youth Ministry Director at Westbrook Community Church, asked for help putting together two books: one for the youth he served and one for their parents. Both books were huge hits with the two groups. The first book brought out many questions from the youth. The second book brought the parents closer into the church community. Stephen Crawford, business coach, needed his already-written book to be edited. I carefully content and copy edited it. The book made a best-sellers list on Amazon. My clients often tell me they like to work with me because I reliably give them writing that creates lasting positive change for their target audience. WHAT MAKES ME UNIQUE? These factors make me your writer of choice: You will receive world-class expertise in writing and client care from a natural. My credentials are an English Literature degree from the University of Wisconsin - Madison, verification from American Writers and Artists Institute, and recent completion of Nick Pavlidis's Ghostwriter School. With client-focused experiences writing for leaders in the United States, I am poised to bring you a positive experience.

    Wanting to write and/or publish a book, but don't know where to start? I can help you from start to finish! Three years ago, I had a book I had written with no direction; today, that book is published and receiving great feedback. Whether you are as early as having just a one sentence idea for a book, in the early editing stages, or as far along as being ready to publish, but don't know where to turn or what to do, I can help you through all stages of writing, creating, and publishing. I can help guide you through the process, provide templates, and review your work to help keep you on track. I can even give feedback on your material, too! Writing (and then publishing that writing) can be a scary and overwhelming process. I am here to change that narrative, so it can be an inviting, peaceful, and exciting one! ------ Allison Relyea is an author born and raised in New York City, currently living in Phoenix, Arizona. She graduated from the The New School with a degree in creative writing. She is the author of A Cure Through Love, a psychological thriller, and three self-help books, medicine, The Honeymoon of Healing, and Undoing Unearthing and Becoming.
