Seeking to Self-Publish a Stand-Out Book… But Need Help with Writing it?

If you have an idea but don’t yet have the manuscript development skills…

If you want to get a message to those who need it…

If you think an experienced editor or book coach could help…

Then Jennifer Lancaster, Writing Coach may be able to help you in your quest to become a purposeful writer.

As an editor/supporter, I’ve helped over 25 authors to improve their manuscript.  In fact, I’ve been writing and editing all kinds of literature (including my own books) since 2002.

Business… sales success… good health… spirituality… creativity… yoga… money…. self-help techniques

NON-FICTION… On any theme, I will mix my editing skills with my writing and self-publishing knowledge.

With the right temperament and budget, you and I can strive towards a beautifully-written and trusted book.

What Can You Find Here?

My indie publisher’s blog lets you know some pitfalls of self-publishing, as well as useful advice on book writing, niche positioning, freelancing and general money/profit advice.

In-depth training in self-publishing can be found over at Business Author Academy with my personally collated ‘Book Creation Success Club‘.

Jennifer Lancaster: About Me

Usually, writers and editors are different people, as they are different skill-sets. That said, I have been working as a copywriter, author and editor for 10 years — so I can actually do both. This makes my editing more helpful than straight proofreading editors.

I found Jennifer easy to work with, although she did not go easy on my text. It was
just what I needed and the book is in a much better place for her insights.
My non-fiction manual style book was stupefyingly boring but Jenifer was too polite
to say this out flat. By encouraging me to review chapters, omit sections and stop
repeating myself, we may just have something readable.

As a writer trying to share my extensive knowledge, my thought process sometimes jumps ahead of my typing skills and consequently my work is sometimes a little disjointed.

Jennifer’s comments on my work and her suggested changes brought clarity to my thinking and helped me more effectively share my story. Truly a delight to work with and I would recommend her service to anyone who is looking to publish their work.

Working with Jennifer on my first ebook project was an absolute pleasure. Not only did she guide me through the publishing process but she also added invaluable editing advice along the way. Her professionalism and expertise is apparent in the quality of the finished product. I learnt a lot working with Jennifer and will not hesitate to seek her services to assist with my next project.

Jennifer does more than edit my writing. As a first time writer, she gave me a lot of information that has made the process much smoother than it would otherwise have been, saving me time and money.

Your editing is exactly what I needed in all the many areas that I did not know enough. Thank you also for clarifying some of the Amazon complexities I was trying to grasp. I am so very grateful to have found you. I know the book will be much improved as a result.
