This is the page where I am supposed to write about myself—a particularly uncomfortable task for me.
So I asked myself: What do I want potential clients to know about me? Here is what I came up with:
I am passionate about books.
I love good books. I love to take a good book and make it better. I am a bit of a nerd in that way. I used to rewrite the endings of my favorite classics just to see if I could mimic the styles of famous writers.
No doubt you are passionate about your own writing project as well. I respect the time, effort and emotion that you have invested in your creation, and will work with you to make your manuscript the masterpiece you envision.
I have experience.
I have been writing since I could pick up a pencil. I have had articles published in magazines and newspapers. I have served as writing assistant to a couple of established authors and done a bit of ghostwriting. I have just completed my first novel.
I have been an editor for 20 years. My projects have included more than a dozen full-length manuscripts and countless articles.
At the request of one of my clients, I taught myself to perform ebook conversions, resulting in more than 40 successfully completed projects.
My transcription skills developed at the request of my pastor more than 25 years ago. Since that time I have transcribed thousands of hours of recordings of sermons, lectures and interviews.
I have integrity.
Your complete satisfaction is guaranteed. My fees are generally a bit below market standard and I keep fair and accurate records of the time I spend on each project. I pay my taxes too, which may or may not mean anything to you, but it is an indicator that I am an honest professional.
