The services that I offer include:
Writing your autobiography, memoir or biography
Starting from scratch to write your autobiography would involve several hours of interviewing, researching, and writing. It would require close collaboration, which can be carried out in person, by phone or email, or by using any other convenient online technology. Ongoing input and feedback from you would be a usual part of the process, as I seek out your approval on the portions of the work that I have completed. In all of this, the objective is to capture your voice and to bring this out in your life story.
EDITING AND PROOFREADING YOUR MANUSCRIPT, IF YOU HAVE ALREADY WRITTEN YOUR LIFE STORY, BUT NEED TO POLISH IT UP
This is a different process, for you would provide me with the copy of your manuscript in Word or similar program, and I would edit it, making small adjustments and pointing out areas that may need improving or reworking, or areas that could be expanded.
EDITING, PROOFREADING AND RE-STRUCTURING YOUR STORY, IF THERE ARE AREAS THAT NEED MORE WORK
Having edited and proofread your work and having made recommendations, I may suggest that there are areas that need restructuring. I could provide alternative solutions that could be adopted to improve the flow of the manuscript and could help you in restructuring. In this case, the objective is always to maintain your voice, even while suggesting changes.
EXTRA RESEARCHING, IF REQUIRED
Depending on the nature of your project, it may involve research, historical and archival, or it may require finding individuals to interview to support certain claims or incidents. I am an avid researcher and take pleasure in doing this kind of work as well.
PROFESSIONAL WRITING PROJECTS
Depending on the nature of the project, the final work may be book-length or shorter.
PUBLISHING OFFLINE AND ONLINE
I also offer the opportunity for you to self-publish offline and help you overcome the various hurdles associated with preparing a manuscript for publication, like getting an ISBN, publishing your work, and putting it in legal deposit. I can also help you in publishing online, in converting your manuscript in the many formats for publication, and in actually publishing your work through online distribution channels. With a highly skilled and talented network, I can help you to achieve your publishing goals. With this knowledge and expertise, I can guide you in all aspects of self-publishing, off-line and online.
