Sold on Building Science. A website and social media company had a home-builder client who needed a book to promote his innovative construction standards and marketing strategy. The client relied on my services to ghostwrite the book for the author and handle the book publishing process. The result was “Sold on Building Science,” published in February 2012, that exceeded the expectations of the author, Tim Lowndes.
“Robert wrote a book for one of my clients. It was a very involved process. Robert definitely led the charge, kept on deadline, and went over and above the call of duty when working with the publisher on final drafts. We have him working on multiple new projects.” — Joe Frost, Frost Media Group
Extreme Producers: Their Insights and Secrets
Jerry Hraban owns a successful partnership in Omaha, Nebraska. Jerry came to me with his idea for a book about all he’s learned over more than 20 years in the financial services industry that he wanted to share with other professionals.
Jerry hired me for my ghostwriting and project management services to get the book published. Jerry’s book (“Extreme Producers: Their Insights and Secrets”) was published in September 2010.
“As a business owner with multiple employees doing business in 49 states, finding time to write and publish a book would be a monumental task. He fully assisted me in writing my latest book, ‘Extreme Producers: Their Insights and Secrets.’ I truly appreciated that he was extremely detailed and stayed motivated to keep the project on schedule. Robert’s professionalism delivered a product beyond my expectations. Not only does Robert have outstanding writing skills, but he also did extensive research to verify facts and other data. He also researched my ideas to include more details. In addition, Robert worked with publishers. He narrowed down the choice of publishers and handled initial negotiations. He fully worked with the chosen publisher to take the manuscript to completion. Writing a book is a monumental challenge. Robert managed the project perfectly to completion. Without Robert, writing and publishing a book would still be on my wish list.” — Jerry Hraban, Founder Premier Insurance Partners, LLC.
How I Lost 200 Pounds in One Day! Client Sharon Henderson approached me about organizing and editing journal entries about her life into a book that would tell her compelling story to family, friends, and others. I also handled the project management of getting the book printed and promoted online through a book self-publishing company.
“I couldn’t have found a more suitable fit than Robert when searching for an editor for my recently published book (May 2010). Not only is he concise and thorough, he also laid out an excellent schedule that worked quite well for both of us. His communication throughout the entire process was stellar. Robert went above and beyond every expectation that I had for an editor. I won’t hesitate to entrust my work to him again.” — Sharon Henderson
The Percussionist’s Wife: A Memoir of Sex, Crime & Betrayal. Monica Lee, a talented former journalist and active blogger asked me to edit her memoir, a tale about the disintegration of her marriage to a teacher accused of sexual assault of one his students. Her fascinating memoir was published in August 2012.
“Robert is the stellar, kindly editor every writer needs. In reviewing my 76,000-word manuscript, he kept the big in mind while fixing or pointing out the myriad details that required attention. His notes were intuitive, strong on mechanics and encouraging. He made my manuscript better without tearing me down as a writer, and I emerged from the experience a better writer and more confident about my work. I highly recommend him.” — Monica Lee
Home Sweet Church: A Renovation to Warm the Soul. Monica again turned to me for editing help with the tale of how she and her husband turned an old small-town Wisconsin church into their home.
