    ***Owner of Ink Worthy Books, a full-service editorial and publication company providing cover-to-cover services and support to self-publishing authors of soulful nonfiction.*** This is my passion, my heart’s work, and what makes me a happy camper. It is not merely my “job.” With more than thirteen years of writing, editing, and publishing experience, I have built my business around helping self-motivated writers take their ideas all the way to publication and beyond. At Ink Worthy Books, we believe that every book has the power to change the world. As a trained nonfiction book coach and developmental editor, I lead a group of skilled professionals who specialize in book editing, design, and marketing. This means that we can support an author’s entire project without risking quality due to the overworked eyeballs of one professional. This approach to self-publishing support saves you hours of searching for skilled pros in the world of one-and-done freelance giggers and alleviates the stress of managing all the details which go into publishing a book. In addition to an array of community and coaching support options, IWB’s hands-on services fall into five categories: Evaluate - Not certain what your story needs? We offer (free!) creative consult calls along with manuscript reviews to help you determine the best next step. This process saves writers both time and money because they leave with a clear idea of how to move their project forward and without having to guess. Edit - We offer three types of editing, depending on the project’s need: developmental editing, line editing, and copy editing. Because these terms are sometimes used inconsistently in the industry, we will discuss your book’s needs in detail to ensure you are confident in what type of editing support you will be receiving. Design - Our design team creates the high quality cover and interior files for all written formats (ebook, soft cover, and hardcover), all to the specification of the particular platform the writer is publishing on. This process also includes a final proofread, which ensures your book shines prior to publishing. Publication Prep - The Ink Worthy Books team helps self-publishing authors manage ALL the loose ends that need attention to prepare to publish their book: writing your author bio, crafting the back cover description and Amazon description, pricing and ISBN support, author website creation, optimization of the book’s Amazon profile, and much more! Rest assured, we can help with every step of the way! Marketing - We support writers in creating a marketing and promotion plan and materials to promote their book both leading up to and following publication. If you are looking for a line or copy edit of your manuscript draft, please see my specialized profiles for more details on how I can help! I look forward to connecting with you soon!

A keen eye for grammar, order, and clarity, along with a good sense of story, enables me to deliver artfully-crafted writing at a high quality. From humor to motivation to inspiration, from marketing materials to poetry to children's writing (^:9 , I love creating the right story. If you're writing your own story, allow me to help you perfect it through review and feedback, collaboration, editing, or proofreading. Please: NO homework NO romances (unless entirely wholesome) NO true ghostwriting. I ask no rights or royalties, only appropriate acknowledgement (by name) for my work (author, contributing writer, editor, collaborator). NO books over 35k words; 20k or fewer words preferred.

A keen eye for grammar, order, and clarity, along with a good sense of story, enables me to communicate precisely or correct or improve upon your written work. A native English speaker with a breadth of aptitudes, including writing and poetry, growing up, I majored in engineering at the University of Tennessee and enjoyed a career in computer programming with IBM before taking time away to raise my family. During my ten-year programming career I gained experience in writing user and operations materials, technical papers, and communications. During my children's growing-up years I did a variety of kinds of creative writing just for fun. Between my school and parenting years I won four different creative writing contests and was published in my college literary magazine. After hanging out my shingle with Upwork I began to do a considerable volume of children's writing, technical editing, and adult nonfiction books. In addition, for Upwork clients I've written poetry, blog posts, poetry in advertising jingles, song lyrics, and items of ESL and ELA curricula. In addition, I've provided ongoing editing for non-native English writers. Known for my painstaking attention to detail and persistent pursuit of excellence, I'm as well suited to the production of precise factual information as to the creation of artfully-crafted story and emotion. Areas of particular personal interest include: * Christian life and faith * children's writing - both fiction and nonfiction, rhymed and unrhymed * history * family and parenting * education and learning differences * English as a second language (eight years' teaching experience) * poetry - writing and editing * personal stories/family projects * technical / science / computer (editing and sometimes writing) * curriculum writing and editing - mathematics, computer programming, English * lyrics * business names and slogans, marketing communications * nature, outdoors * amateur photography, photo book making FEE STRUCTURE HOURLY RATE PREFERRED: I greatly appreciate clients who are willing to honor my conscientious work by arranging an hourly rate. Willing to negotiate, especially for a bigger job or repeat client. I log only actual work time. I do not log the time spent in communication during a project, and I try not to charge for reasonable revision. The following is a guide for fixed rates, when necessary. * Writing one children's story + one revision + one final edit 100 - 500 words: $125 (To produce a well-crafted story in few words takes much time.) 500 - 1000 words: $200 every additional 500 words - +$75 If we are contracting for multiple stories, some discount may be arranged. * Other writing Ten cents or more per word, depending on the project. Will I need to do research? Do I need to write from someone else's work, organizing and reworking it, etc.? What is expected in the way of revision/final editing? * Editing Proofing or Light copy editing: $15 per page Heavy copyediting / substantive editing: $25 per page Developmental editing: $10 per page

    I want to help you complete your writing project. Whether that's a final edit or writing a whole book from scratch, I have the experience and skills to solve the problems you're facing. These are the reasons why I feel I can support you: 1. Versatility - I've written fiction (historical, thrillers, crime, alternative history, teenage crime and short stories) and non-fiction (memoirs, advice, humour and business topics). I can adapt to almost every style of writing. 2. Research - with a degree in history and a lifelong love of the subject, research is a joy. I can build the story or the body of information that you need, quickly and efficiently. 3. Skills - I've written over a dozen books and published nine of them. I've sent my books off to editing and I've edited other people's. I've made mistakes and seen the mistakes of others. I've learnt that having the ability to restructure a story or a piece of non-fiction is essential. That's the way you make the biggest impact with the reader. 4. Dependability - I might write about characters who let the side down but I strive very hard not ever to do that myself. It's about organisation and it's about work ethic. I won't let you down short of a major disaster. 5. Communication and Responsiveness- both these are vital to a successful project. I won't get it dead right first time but I will listen and turn the work around. The ability to listen is one of the key things I offer in presenting my stall. I hope you will use me for your next project because I want to help you with it.

    Don't let my location fool you. I'm an American expat living a wonderful life in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, but my language skills are firmly routed in American English. I find writing and editing on my laptop at a private deserted beach the perfect environment for my creativity and concentration. My freelance work focuses primarily on two areas: (1) complete editing and formatting services for both fiction and non-fiction books and (2) writing fiction and non-fiction, with a particular interest in ghostwriting autobiographies. As an editor, I love the process of starting with a critical read of a book and capturing its developmental needs and then moving on to the more technical side of the structure, grammar, and extensive proofreading. Finally, as with any jewel that has been cut, I do a final polish to make it perfect. I have clients all over the world, from Sweden, Italy, Japan, the UK, Australia, and, yes, the United States. I edit and write in American, British, and Australian English and totally understand the differences in grammar, usage, and slang. I also am skilled at working with authors whose native language is NOT English and have translated their work but need additional editing to make it sound more natural. Although I may be a relative “newbie” to Upwork, I have over 15 years of experience as a professional writer, editor & proofreader. I promise you complete accuracy, timely delivery, and a critical editing eye. My writing partners find my honesty and communication skills key to a great collaboration. My current and recent writing and editing projects include a Netflix Biopic about a notorious London entrepreneur, a political satire novel, a murder mystery novel, several articles for CNN and USA Today, two novels in the fantasy genre, an economic dissertation, a Tolkien type fantasy by a Swedish author. With over fifteen years in the industry, my clientele often commend my unwavering honesty and effective communication. My portfolio? It's as diverse as a CEO's perspective on design, a wanderlust-filled memoir of Latin America, to sci-fi adventures in distant galaxies. The stories I cherish the most? Ghostwriting for a U.S. Senator, recounting the life of a WWII refugee turned successful entrepreneur, and weaving a transformative self-help manuscript on being your best self. "My only regret in having James ghostwrite my biography is that I couldn't give him credit for it -- it has been a huge success for me"... Richard P. "As my editor, he took my fledgling novel and polished it into a diamond now in my very happy publisher's hands." ... Tony G. Contact me today. The best way to start any writing project is for me to have the chance to chat with you before we even begin. I would love an opportunity to show you how I can meet and surpass the needs of this opportunity.

    Rachael doesn't think stories are just words on paper. She understands that each story offers the reader a unique journey and a different perspective. In her six years of storytelling, Rachael has worked with 60+ clients, both globally (freelance platforms like Upwork), and locally.  She has honed her skills to excel in three book categories: Memoirs, Biographies, and Fiction (Science Fiction and Fantasy). When Rachael isn't sharing helpful content on her website (check link in profile), she is helping others tell their stories. Being passionate about her craft, she anticipates challenging opportunities, and has often emerged victorious on any developmental editing venture, where she usually functions as a Book Doctor offering two services: 1.

    Want to know if I'm THE Ghostwriter for your memoir? Message me for a FREE consultation Welcome! 😊 I'm passionate about telling stories, and the next unforgettable story I'm going to help tell is yours. When I ghostwrite your memoir, there are two things I hope to help you accomplish: - A story as unique as you. - A legacy that readers will carry with them always. But why should you write a memoir? Because time is fleeting, memories can become tainted, skewed, and forgotten, accomplishments can be buried or stolen, and whole legacies can be erased unless you write them down - unless you encase them in words and pass them down through stories; read and retold by people who are grateful to hold a version of you that resonates, inspires, teaches, or entertains. And because, there's that one person waiting to be healed by your story. More than writing stories to thrill and entertain, I’ve realized our stories aren’t just stories; they are legacies, a version of us that will live on after we are gone. When you are writing a legacy, you don’t just want anyone to write it because it’s a forever thing. You want a storyteller who will sit with you, learn your voice, and write a story that is authentically YOU. You want a storyteller who will understand that this is a legacy you are leaving, a legacy tells your kids, their kids, and every reader who picks it up and connects with it, exactly who you are. You want a storyteller who can make your story unforgettable for all the right reasons. I am that storyteller, and I cannot wait to work with you. My specialty is heart-wrenching memoirs. Memoirs that explore the human condition, that teach grace, humility, resilience, and love. That yearns to connect with the reader and is unafraid, to tell the truth. What is your story? I am eager to hear it and even more eager to write it. Reach out, and together we will write an unforgettable story and leave an authentic legacy. Complimentary Services: 1. All The Edits! - I'll hand you a book that's been professionally edited and proofed. If you are self-publishing, you can go straight to publishing. And, if you are traditional publishing, you'll have a clean manuscript to query agents. 2. Queries & Blurbs: If you are traditional publishing, I'll help you write a query letter that you can personalize and submit to as many agents as you want! And if you are self-publishing, I'll write you a blurb for the cover of your memoir. Ready to get started? Message me to get a free consultation.

    [OCTOBER 2023: I'm proud to announce that I am now the recipient of an academic copy editing certification co-sponsored by the Poynter Institute for Media Studies and the American Copy Editors Society (of which I am a paid member). For more, see either the Poynter or the ACESEditors website.] From 2007 to 2017 I was the owner of the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography, which published 40 books for total distribution of over 20,000 copies. Along the way, CCLaP's books won or were finalists for a half-dozen awards, including the Pushcart Prize, the Lambda Award for LGBTQ literature, and the Independent Publisher Book Award; and the center itself was named one of the 10 best indie presses in the United States by both BookRiot.com and Poets & Writers magazine. Now I bring that same award-winning deep editing experience to your own self-published or small-press manuscript, helping you hone it with a fine knife into the best book it can possibly be. I specialize in "developmental" editing (also known as "content editing"), taking a big-picture look at your manuscript and identifying strengths and weaknesses in plot, character, pacing, style and tone, and giving you no-bones advice about how "publishable" it currently is. I also regularly do copy editing (also known as "line editing"), focusing in on a word-by-word basis to correct mistakes in what my industry calls GUPS (grammar, usage, punctuation and spelling). Other services include simple "post-production proofreading" for typos and missing punctuation; complete rewriting of entire sections of text for better clarity; specialized academic work using the Chicago Manual of Style, APA and Bluebook; and short documents like memos, web articles, website copy and promotional material for enterprise and other corporate clients. I believe in being transparent and consistent with my fees, so here are my rates in advance: Simple proofreading for typos: 0.5 cents per word Developmental editing: 1 cent per word Copy editing: 1 cent per word Developmental + copy edit for the same document: 1.5 cents per word Rewriting text into a more readable form: 1.5 cents per word Doctoral dissertations: 2 cents per word Journalism: 3 cents per word Enterprise clients: 5 cents per word All of these rates are also open for discussion and best offers, so just drop me a line if you'd like to discuss the subject more. See my portfolio section at the bottom of the page for a broad selection of testimonials from authors I've worked with as a freelancer, links to some of the books CCLaP still has for sale at Amazon, and praise my books have garnered over the years from such publications as Publishers Weekly, Kirkus, the Chicago Tribune, HTMLGIANT, and more. I'm happy to say that I've had a top-rated designation here at Upwork (given to the top 5 percent of all freelancers based on client satisfaction scores) since 2021 without a break, and pretty consistently maintain a 100% job success score. I look forward to hearing from you. *Proud member of the American Copy Editors Society* *Proud member of the Romance Writers of America* AI PLEDGE: I promise that all work I complete for clients has been, and will always be, accomplished using only my human brain and ten human fingers, never using AI bots, Grammarly, or other software options. I encourage you to demand this promise from all the freelancer candidates you interview and work with!

    My grandfather designed and built houses. My father was a chemical engineer and a woodworker who constructed furniture during the weekend. I like to think that the building impulse is in my genes; my raw material is not wood and nails but rather words. My passion for language and story precipitated my choices in my studies and in my career. As an English teacher, I love teaching students who are preparing for college and careers. I have also worked with student writers who have gained national recognition for their fiction and poetry. I have helped people expand their writing to elaborate on details and I have helped writers reduce their writing to fit a particular word count. My MA in Writing Studies allowed me to focus on my passion: fiction and poetry. While in the program, I also worked with journalism, editing, and nonfiction of all sorts. I have written 3 books as well. My skills include: • Close reading for grammar, spelling, organization, syntax, etc. • Correcting issues with wording, voice, and sentence structure. • Providing feedback on content. • Providing editorial support for application essays. • Providing editorial support for essays and other works of nonfiction. • Assisting poets and fiction writers with development of their work. • Tailoring writing to a specific audience. • Tutoring individuals who want to improve their writing. I write with an awareness of purpose and audience. I will work to your specifications, trying to provide the support that you need for your written work.
