Book Editing

ARE YOU AN UNPUBLISHED NOVELIST

If you have written or partly completed a novel or biography but lack the skills to bring your work to retail standard award-winning Michael Walsh can help you. Enquiries are invited from writers who have completed or partly completed their book. If you are simply thinking about writing a book or have only an idea about a storyline then I am sorry but I cannot respond to such requests. There is a demand for fiction, real-life stories, mystery, romance, crime, erotica, and romantic comedy.  Contact: keyboardcosmetics@gmail.com

GHOSTS ARE IMPORTANT

Most writers engage a ghost-writer who will bring their book to retail standards. Editing fees are recoverable through the book’s royalties. Eighty percent of celebrity memoirs and forty percent of conventional books are ghost-written. Besides, like composing music or working on an artwork it is an achievement even if it does not become a best-seller.

The ghost or editor is a professional writer who adds flair and flow whilst enhancing the narrative and dialogue. Writers like Jeffrey Archer and Wilbur Smith do not write books. They provide the storyline and their ghost does the rest.

Michael Walsh charges a reduced rate of €20 (£20 / $25) per 1,000 words. Michael Walsh has his name on the cover of over 70 books and novels. He received the ‘Writer of the Year’ award from the Euro Weekly News Group.

Michael Walsh adds flair and flow to your submitted story whilst enhancing the narrative and dialogue. Working from emailed copy (I cannot work from handwritten work), I complete work at paid stages easily transferred to my British or Spanish bank account.  This means you don’t get the entire bill on completion of your book. NOTE: Copywriting from submitted manuscript is not available.

It is possible, for example, for your ghost to bring a 40,000 word submitted novel to 50,000 or more words. Working together he can bring your novel up to normal retail size. Writers’ agents and book publishers normally require a minimum of 50,000 words. Book-buying popularity: Romance, Erotica, Romantic-Comedy, and crime.
