Firstly, an explanation. Chances are, you arrived here expecting to find something or other…
A version of this website has been online since 1998. In September of 2019 I consolidated my writing blogs.
(If you’re looking for my old writing blogs, Fab Freelance Writing Blog and Just Write a Book Blog, they’ve been consolidated into my writing blog. If you need something that was previously here or on one of the blogs, contact me via the form below and we’ll try to find it for you.)
I also decided to revamp this site. But HOW?
I looked at my old Creativity Factory Blog which had thousands of posts — and decided to start afresh.
So, this site is a new vision.
What will you find here going forward?
I hope you’ll find information, ideas, and motivation to build your business, whether you’re a self-publishing author, blogger, or other small business owner and entrepreneur.
Is this site for you?
We focus on communication as a business, or part of a business.
- You’re an entrepreneur. Communication is essential.
- Maybe you’re writing as a side hustle and want to turn that into a business. Or you’re…
- Looking for a side hustle. You’ve got a full-time job, but you want to make some money, and perhaps start a business. Maybe…
- You’re a beginner. You have dreams. You’d love to write a bestselling novel, or become a hot blogger and influencer.
Who am I and how did I start a writing business?
I started my writing career as a romance novelist for the UK publisher MacDonald-Futura way back in the early 1980s. Then I went on to write business books for traditional publishers like Prentice Hall. Writing leads to more writing, so I stumbled into copywriting and ghostwriting, both by accident, as a result of writing for magazines.
Over my many years as a copywriter and ghostwriter I’ve written for companies large and small, as well as for individuals. Companies included Nyx Cosmetics and hp.
Blogging fascinated me; I started my earliest blogs in the late 1990s, long before blogging was fashionable. In 2004 the business world discovered blogs, so for several years I ghostwrote company blogs.
Also in the 1990s, I started to teach writing. Firstly in community colleges, then after 2002, online. You can check out my current courses and classes for writers on my Writing Classes website.
