I am a self-published author, blogger and full time freelance writer in the self-improvement industry.
There are a few ways you can work with me.
I believe that writing is a very personal thing and everyone’s style is different. I also believe that everyone, myself included, can make our writing better with someone else’s eyes on it.
With the Written Word Blog Coaching, I take a look at your blog posts/articles/ website content, and then make suggestions on ways to improve it. Don’t worry, I’m not a stern taskmaster.
I will give you guidance on writing your blog posts/articles/content, editing/proofing, suggestions on improving the content such as adding images, being more personalized, etc.
Keeping on top of everything that needs to be done in your business can mean doing everything except what you started your business for. Instead let me take care of the back end things to free your time for what you are good at.
I know how anxious you may be about letting anyone see your work before it’s ready. I provide a professional, detailed and confidential service.
I am a self-published author meaning I’ve taken the steps to learn how to get my book published and out there. You won’t have to spend the time learning the technical side of self-publishing with my help.
I just wanted to say how much weight you, Carol, have lifted off my shoulders! I love to use my time wisely, so I repurpose lots of my work to be used in many platforms. How ironic that in doing that, I have been wasting a lot of time in the past, as editing and reformatting transcribes into blogs have been zapping my time and my energy as they are just not in my zone of genius!
It wasn’t until I met Carol that I felt brave enough to let that project go to someone else. My fear has always been that I’ll end up spending just as much time again correcting and rephrasing work so it feels authentically me. I felt that Carol understood me, my style and my energy, so I immediately felt comfortable to leave my transcripts in her incredible hands, knowing they would be edited and formatted in a way that still feels and reads like my usual self, so I can use those in my marketing and blogs.
Having Carol work in her zone of genius has saved me at least 5 hours a week, if not more and Carol totally does a better job than I could ever have done!
Thank you so much! I am so happy to be able to fill that time doing what I am meant to be doing-helping others with their health!

*Book Prompts: Not sure what to write about? This is for you. Book prompts are ideas with synopsis for books in your niche. Click on this page to get started.
*Proofreading: I will proofread and improve your book manuscript, marketing material or blog posts from the structural side. You provide the talent as the author and I provide the editing so that your book can be the best that it can be.
In addition to proofreading, I may make suggestions on the flow. You will receive a full report with my revisions. I use Microsoft Word, with the Track Changes feature activated.
- Sentence Clarity
- Incorrect word usage
I focus on the writing, not the story. I don't add content or do extensive rewriting. Simple rephrasing of awkward sentences will be done or recommended.
I'm a native English speaker and an avid reader and I have over 20 years’ experience in writing and proofreading documents.
All work is kept completely confidential!
Whether you need a light proofreading job, an extensive proofread or help with the publishing aspect I can help!
