Why The Best Writers Don’t Get Published Without An Editor

Why The Best Writers Don’t Get Pub...

I have been ghostwriting and editing for other writers for years. I love it. There is no other way to express how I feel about it. Sharing in the development and production of someone’s story is like nothing else I have experienced. But, that’s the writer in me-the editor. One of the things that make it so spectacular is bringing out the very best in what was already amazing. I say this all of the time and I will continue saying it in every piece that I write on editing. As the author, you are far too close and invested in the piece to be the only one working on it.

An editor, what’s that?

An editor, what’s that?

Hey hey! It’s Amani. The Ghostwriter. The Freelance Editor. I love for my writers to be well-equipped when publishing their babies. But better than equipped, I want them to be wise.

Self-Published Princess

Self-Published Princess

by : Madeline Rosenberg   I never dreamed I could publish my own book. It sounded too good to be true.  There are so many amazing books on Amazon that from self-published authors, which show you how much potential we can have.  I have learned so much in the book business within the past year.  My advice to an aspiring author would be don’t do it for the paycheck – do it for the PASSION.  Self-publishing is tough work, especially if you’re your own publicist and formatter, which I am.   The most surprising thing I have learned is negative reviews can actually...

Book Review: Random Thoughts From The Heart by Michelle Poitier

Book Review: Random Thoughts From The He...

Author: Michelle Poitier Title: Random Thoughts From The Heart: A Collection Publisher: Bookstand Publishing   When I obtained my copy of Random Thoughts, I expected to get some inspiration for my daily hum drum, but not much more.  Ms. Poitier’s stream of consciousness was refreshing and much needed for any Christian.  I found it to be a mirror reflecting many moments that I have found myself in. With her mixture of thoughts and poetry, Ms. Poitier shows her vulnerability, transparency, faith, and longing for a righteous walk with God.  This is a must have for the...
