If you need help with your business book, white paper or other communications, there are a number ways we can work together.
Editing & coaching combo
Have you made a start on something then ground to a halt? Not sure which way to go next? Let’s work on it together.
This collaborative process begins with me creating an outline based on your rough draft and an in-depth phone call. This will give you direction to flesh out some detail for the next draft, which I will then edit, adding or reworking sections if needed. There might be a number of iterations until we get it exactly where you want it.
An added bonus of working this way is that you will hone your writing skills for your next project.
Here’s what a client had to say about this process:
I found Lu’s partnership invaluable in developing an information and
marketing package for our potential clients. She has a rare ability
to grasp complex concepts very quickly. As a result she is able
to simplify, shape and develop supporting materials on any
topic for any audience, and within a short timeframe.

Are you getting your ideas and information across in the most effective way for your readers? Let me check.
I can make sure your message is clear and compelling, and pitched at the right tone for your readers.
My specialties include:
- refreshing web copy that’s become tired and unwieldy
- translating bureauspeak into plain English
- untangling multi-authored documents that have got themselves into a knot.
Lu took a document that was the product of a few people’s co-writing,
which did not have an executive summary, a clear flow or a punchy
wrap up, and turned it in to a well bookended piece that took you
through the story in a succinct and well structured way.
Got the ideas and information but no time to put them together? Let me do the heavy lifting.
Here’s a link to a sample writing job:
About to go to print? Is everything is present and correct?
As well as checking grammar, spelling, punctuation and style, I’ll make sure elements such as headings, captions, tables and graphs are complete and consistent.
Ready to publish?
I can create a print-ready file for you, which can be converted to an ebook file if required.
