Writing & Editing
Writing done right. Right now.

The written word has never been stronger.

More books (some paper, some electronic) are being published now than ever before. The number of blog posts, articles, and newsletters created and distributed continues to grow rapidly. When there’s no longer an option to meet people in person, more and more of your customers and prospects rely on what’s been written by you and about you when making decisions whether or not to work with you.

Your writing has never mattered more.

Many of us have something significant to say, but can’t always come up with the right way to say it. Too many people struggle with their writing projects, or put off that book they’d love to write because this doesn’t come easy to them.

That’s why we’re here.

Linda Popky is an award winning marketing consultant who has not only written marketing and PR materials for clients, she’s authored her own books, and written, edited, and produced commercially published books for other authors. She’s created marketing and educational content for technology as well as general business audiences. Her blog posts are regularly published by C-Suite Networks, MultiBriefs, CommPro, and others and her Write Now virtual workshop sells out on a regular basis.

Stop fighting with your writing projects. Put Linda’s expertise to work for you. Right now.

Coaching
We work with authors to help guide them through the book creation process. Among the topics we can cover in coaching sessions:

Content Creation
In today’s world, content is king.

Having the right content is crucial to the success of your business. Once you’re identified the subject matter and material you’d like for your pieces, they need to be written in a way that provides the right level of information and tone for your target audience. Your content should drive the reader to take the next step—whatever you decide that should be. Linda creates impactful content for a wide variety of business areas, including technology, life sciences, management, marketing, non-profit, professionals services, and the arts.

“Linda was the editor of my first self-published book, 5G the Future is Now. I was completely new to the process and Linda provided me guidance, honest feedback, and assistance making my first book a less daunting experience than initially expected.”

“As my book, The Resilience Advantage was moving through its editorial process, I was disappointed in the quality of the editing work done by my publisher. Before I started receiving the final galleys, I knew I had to take independent action. After talking with several of my professional colleagues who had written successful books, one name kept coming up as someone who could help me with my editing. That name was Linda Popky. I knew Linda as an author, having read her excellent book, Marketing Above the Noise, but I had no idea that she also edited manuscripts.
“I was in a bit of a time crunch, as we were far along in the process, but Linda immediately stepped up to the plate and completed a comprehensive review of my manuscript. She made grammatical corrections, language suggestions, and created footnotes. Her review was thorough and accurate. After sending the manuscript back to the publisher, they expressed appreciation for having received such a well-edited version.”
