    Professional Ghostwriting, Copywriting & Editing

    Thailand - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 13

    Accountants can save you money; solicitors protect your money; but a good copywriter will make you money. I am a professional and published writer/editor, equally at home writing sales pages as editing books. As a 'Top Rated' Upwork featured writer I guarantee you 5-Star quality delivered on time, every time: from sales pages, web copy and blog posts to contributing to and editing non-fiction books. You can find cheaper writers - but no-one has ever said I didn't provide value! A few quick notes: *UK born and bred, but lived in Australia and Thailand for the past two decades. *I don't do Fixed Price jobs but we can agree strict hourly limits. *I don't ghost forum posts or product reviews - I feel that this is unethical and misleading. *You will receive fully-proofed, publishable copy- no sending back for constant amendments.

    United States - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 5

    I have a BA in Professional Writing with more than 7 years of experience in ghostwriting, copywriting, and editing. I am a published author with more than 50 credits to my name. I have had novels, short story collections, poetry collections, and a chapbook published by small press venues.My poetry and short fiction have appeared in publications as wide ranging as a Norton anthology to a small press horror collection thematically based on The Wizard of Oz. I have written contracted fiction for several small press outlets. In 2012, I won an Amazon.com writing contest which awarded me a contract to write an installment of a suspense/horror series for 47 North, a division of Amazon. The series, The Dead Man, is the creation of New York Times best-selling author Lee Goldberg. Additionally, I have ghostwritten articles, blog posts and game scripts. I have ghostwritten more than 300 articles in a wide array of areas, from online dating to comical pet information. I have a superb eye for editorial detail, and a knack for creative approaches to text. Professionally, I have also worked on large technical jobs; I have served as lead author and editor for several large contract jobs, many of which were valued at more than $10 million. I am able to blend my educational and occupational skills in creative and technical writing, allowing me to write about any topic in a voice that is approachable to any audience. I excel in translating technical texts into easy-to-understand terms and also have a keen eye and talent for composing ad copy and PowerPoint presentations. My true strengths lie in original web copy, creative content (non-fiction and fiction) and creative writing.
