What People Are Saying

Ghostwriting | Coaching

  

Great work, Angie! The book has come together better than I expected. — Pete Williams, Cadence: A Tale of Fast Business Growth

 

I thank God for divinely putting us together for such a time as this and for allowing you to ghostwrite the testimony of my life. —John Ramirez, Out of the Devil's Cauldron 


I was so nervous to begin this project, but ... I came away from our hour together with so much concrete direction. Everything you said makes so much sense, and now I have a sense of what it should look like...or "read like"! —Donna Holte, aspiring author

Line Editing | Proofreading

It has been a true pleasure working with you and your book editing team. Thank you for making my book so much better!  —Keith Macpherson, Making Sense of Mindfulness

  

Angie, thank you for your immense contribution in making this project a success. You not only showed professionalism; the spirit of excellence is evident in this work.  — Pastor Guy Freeman Siyawareva, My New Life in Christ


I was really happy with your edit. You/your team did an excellent job and made my book a much better story.  — Leanne Wood, The Power of Things Unseen


Line Editing | Back-Cover Copy

 Angie took my work to another level and polished the storyline with great ideas and changes that made my book that much better. Craig  D. Koehler,  So Many Secrets series


Love it, Angie! Thanks for a great partnership in writing the back-cover copy for this book. Already looking forward to the next book!   Jim Coleman, Cut the Crap and Close the Gap

Developmental Editing

Angie, I've gone through the MS and it has exceeded my expectations. I really feel that the content of the book is exactly what I had stored in my heart!   Lysandro Inacio, Servant Entrepreneurship

Copyediting

 Angie came highly recommended when I was searching for an expert grammatical editor. I found her to be a highly efficient expert and a pleasure to know. I look forward to working with her again and again.   Robyn Spizman, author and media personality

Manuscript Review

Angie, you're gold. So much is plain to see as far as the big notes of characterization and sentences that spark with verbs rather than passivity. I think I am so self-aware now that I can edit this draft to that end. Neal Turnage, The Boy on the Board (novel in progress)

About Me

My Writing Roots

image195

  You know how you can watch a child play and figure out what they are wired to "do" and "be" when they grow up? I was the kid making homemade books sitting cross-legged on the floor. I would write little stories then draw pictures to bring them to life and staple the whole thing together when it was time to "publish." I followed that lifelong passion for words and books by carving out a career in the

publishing industry.


My editorial experience ranges from magazine editing to website content creation/column writing to ghostwriting to book editing to editorial project management. 


A former writer for Publishers Weekly,

I have authored more than a dozen books including The 7 Deadly Sins of Writing; I also ghostwrote the bestsellers Cadence: A Tale of Fast Business Growth by Pete Williams, Healing One Cell at a Time by Dr. Gordon Crozier, and Out of the Devil’s Cauldron by evangelist John Ramirez, among others.


Whether it's writing, coaching, honing manuscripts, or speaking, I spark to life when I'm helping other writers give birth to the stories and messages within them. 


Work with Me

image196

My team and I edit and review both nonfiction and fiction book manuscripts and have worked for some of the top names in publishing. (My areas of strength in ghostwriting are memoir, motivational, business parable, and informational/teaching books.)


My publishing journey has allowed me to work with such notable clients as Morgan James Publishing, Thomas Nelson, Baker/Revell, Jossey-Bass, Harvest House, Honor Books, Albury Publishing, Barbour Publishing, Charisma House, Gale-Cengage, and Abingdon Press.

FAQs

image197

  1. What can I expect in a coaching call? During your session(s), I will find out your biggest author stumbling blocks and tackle each one. Common examples: honing your core message, whether to write in first person or third person, what type of book should this be--a memoir or a teaching book, how do I "show" and not "tell," organizing thoughts/topics, is the scope of my book too large or too small? 
  2. Will Angie be the editor on my book project? Whenever possible, yes--but during busy seasons I take a team approach and have one of my team editors do the hands-on editing, followed by a QC scroll-thru by me. Team editors are selected for their excellence and are so skilled I would entrust my own book to them!
  3. How do I pay for services? Editing projects require a 50% deposit to schedule the work. Contact me and I will send you a quote based on the editing level needed and word count. Coaching is on a per-hour basis. Ghostwriting requires a customized quote.
