Book Ghoster

No matter which service you need, please consider that while any decent writer can help you convey the content, what sets me apart is my natural empathy and career experience in effective persuasion.  

I work hard to understand the way you think and express yourself. Then I help you find the right words not only to reach your reader’s mind but also to touch his or her heart.

Rave Reviews
In my professional writing career of over 20 years, I have never met a more competent editor, writer and proofreader. Lou Anne recently did justice to an ebook I have written on my rugby experiences in university. While my words stood tall like a rugby lock forward, Lou Anne made them fly like a winger sprung free!”

I spent at least five years polishing the client stories I wanted to put in my first book. When I thought I was close to publishing it, I asked an English teacher to edit it. When finished, it felt all wrong but I couldn’t figure out why. 

“I asked Lou Anne to look at the manuscript. Right away, she said, ‘It’s grammatically correct but it doesn’t sound like you. It sounds like an English essay. We need to put your voice back into it.’

“She reworked more than 60 stories and suggested adding a life lesson at the end of each one. She also coached me through the self-publishing process. In only a few months, I had a printed book to be proud of!
