Not too many editors can also say they are published authors, but I am. At 61, I have published guides, manuals, two magazines, edited two books and a master’s thesis, and written two books of my own. One is a work of science fiction and the other is a book about the Women of the Bible who are heroines that deserve the spotlight.
How will this work? You will provide me with audio tapes of your life, and I will weave those into a tapestry filled with humor and sadness, when appropriate, but mostly with joie de vivre [joy for living]. Everyone has a story; why not tell yours?
I am the East Coast Marketing Lady. I have been in business since 1993, having commenced prior to the start of website popularity, performing only editing and proofreading under the name Concise Editing. Much has changed over time; the internet exploded. I made 22 websites for artists, writers, inventors musicians, politicians, and more. I bloomed into a publicist, handling campaigns for numerous small businesses based on the East Coast.
With regards to payment: I will be paid a monthly retainer, based on the number of hours you want me to devote to your book, at a rate of $50/hour, until your project is completed. Your memoir will be online [via my website, on a private page with private password reserved only for you] so can watch it in progress. Once completed, it will be downloaded as a word document and pdf for you to send to publishers. My minimum monthly retainer is $500 for ten hours of work. I will be working on four books simultaneously at this rate in 2023.
I will say this in conclusion: I won’t write about sexual encounters. Your subject matter must be “family friendly” for me even to consider it.
To discuss your memoir, use my contact page and I will call you back at my earliest convenience.
