Writing Services, Copywriting/Copy Editing

My BusinessI write books and website content. I edit books, blogs, articles, and internet content. I also coach speakers who wish to become published authors, and write/tweak/proof speaker introductions, biographies, PowerPoint programs, and all manner of business- and speaker-related promotional and marketing materials. I design book covers and posters. I publish books. My tagline is ...because good writing makes you money.

Ideal ReferralMy ideal referral is someone with a website who needs help with its content. I can write and edit industry- and profession-specific content, including menus, manuals, mass emails, and other marketing materials. I regularly write bios, introductions, and program descriptions for professional speakers. Also, someone who wants to establish professional credibility by publishing a book is someone I can help: I can edit, format, and publish a paperback book and have, in fact, published 40 books, both for myself and for clients. There's nothing like being a published author to demonstrate expertise.

Top ProductMy top products are books: Self-Editing for Content Writers; Self-Editing for Successful Students; Before You Even Open Your Mouth: Business Writing for Professional Speakers; and Shade in the Sunshine State: Reflections on Segregation in Florida. You can see my books on

Top Problem SolvedI had a BNI editing client who was about to submit a report in which he'd written "reputedly," but he meant "repeatedly." That catch alone made every penny he paid me worthwhile.

My Favorite BNI StoryI have two hometowns: Sarasota, Florida, and Brunswick, Maine. A couple of weeks ago I walked into the Brunswick BNI chapter and walked out with three writing projects. I feel I could go anywhere in the world, walk into a BNI meeting, and be among friends.

My Ideal Referral PartnerMy ideal referral is a professional who wants to establish credibility and expertise by publishing articles, blogs, and books, and then use those written materials as an entree into public speaking. I would like to work with website design professionals who need help with written content. I would also like to look over articles, profiles and bios, and all other types of marketing materials for BNI members and their referrals BEFORE someone hits "publish" or "print." A misspelled word, in my opinion, is death to credibility.
