Lisa offers several types of editorial services:

  1. The Focused Writer (1-Hour Project Consulting Call)

Sometimes it’s difficult to see where a nonfiction manuscript is headed, or to identity thorny areas of development. Other times, it’s difficult to know what market exists for different projects. This telephone consultation is designed to help, providing clarity and focus about a project, including structure, audience, writing quality and effectiveness, and marketing options, or the publishing process. Service includes review of first 1,000 words of the project.  Designed for projects developed for adults, or kids. ($90.)

  1. Developmental Editing

Once a manuscript is completed it may need a developmental edit to make it shine. Fees vary.

  1. Ghostwriting

Busy thought leaders often dream of writing a book, but do not have the time and/or expertise. Other reasons also exist why hiring a ghostwriter is the “write” decision to make. Fees vary.
