Every business has a tremendous need for written material. This is true whether you’re a speaker, business owner, or coach. Even subject matter experts firmly established in larger corporations sometimes have need of a way to prove their expertise. One of the best ways to do that is by literally writing a book on the subject.
Whether you want to write a book to highlight your expertise, provide a how-to manual, or simply want to attract new clients using social media and the internet, there is constantly a need for you to produce more material. This usually happens when you are also short on time. Most businesses struggle to keep up. Contracting some of that work to a professional ghostwriter can significantly reduce your stress levels while getting the job done in high style.

Be a Part of Current Works in Progress
Each of these current works consists of a collection of 10 chapters, each featuring a different individual epitomizing the book theme. Those featured are able to share information about their big ideas and accomplishments, thus providing others with examples, ideas, role models, and potential support groups. At the same time, the individuals featured in each book are able to gain greater reach, improve credibility, and are promoted to audiences similar to their own. Each book listed below is in the application process. In exchange for a small fee of $2250 to cover production expenses, Wendy will write an approximately 5,000 word chapter for your approval and, upon project completion, 50 print copies to distribute as they wish (giveaway promotion, speaker table, sell).

Ghostwriting for business can come in a variety of forms for print or for web:
- Books that establish credibility / expertise
- How-to manuals for customers
- Safety, operations, or policy manuals for employees
- Business proposals
- Business forms
- White papers
- Case studies
- Web pages
- Blog posts
- Email campaigns
- Social media management
- Grant writing
All of these elements may be necessary to grow a fledgling business or to keep an already successful one at top of mind for your customer base. The problem is trying not to sound like everyone else out there while still having time to conduct the business you’re actually in. Unless you’re also a full-time writer, chances are you are feeling overwhelmed and frustrated with the amount of work that appears on your desk every day. Save yourself time and frustration through outsourcing your most pressing tasks. Focus your attention on things that only you can do.
You may already have an idea drafted for your next profile piece. It exists in bits and pieces of content here and there. Parts are on your hard drive, in hand-written notes, and maybe even in recordings of speeches, training events, or other venues. Story coaching can work for you if you already have most of a draft finished. Through coaching, you can be sure your piece will work for your audience.
You may also be interested in writing your own book but have no idea how to get started. Story coaching works much like a writing class except you’re the only student, classes meet based on your schedule, and the only assignments given are always 100% focused on producing the material you want to create.
Want to write a book? Work one-on-one with me and we’ll map out the stages necessary. Then we’ll work through them together until you have a polished manuscript in your hands.

Editing / Proofreading
You may have plenty of time and talent to produce the materials your business needs, but lack some of the confidence that it is good enough to do the job. While you may not need a ghostwriter, you want someone who can look through your materials, help you catch glaring (and not so glaring) errors, and help you sound as professional as you are. You may have doubts about organizational structure, use of symbolism and metaphor, or how to use rhetoric and marketing strategy more effectively. As an editor, I can help find those major sticking points or as a proofreader I can help you catch those typos before they go to print / web.
Business Experience / Training
My education from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi includes a Master’s degree in English with dual specialization in Technical writing / Rhetoric and Literature. As a former business owner of a small transportation company, a child care center, and a newspaper, I offer the unique combination of a creative spirit with business sense. I’d love to put my strengths to work for you.
In addition to my formal education, I am also a member of the Professional Writer’s Alliance and receive continuous training in writing for business through American Writers and Artists, Inc., the gold-standard for professional copywriting education and development.
