Your story is special, unique and important. I will tell it in exactly the way that you want, using your voice and your language to make the writing sound just like you. You’ll be involved every step of the way.
research: listening and recording
We’ll work out a plan and a structure for your book together. I’ll spend plenty of time getting to know you and the essentials and purpose of your story. We’ll make a recording of your story that I can adapt later.
writing your book
After this, I’ll undertake any additional research that we need to do before composing a draft to a length and timescale we’ve agreed. If you want to write for publication, I can help you with your pitch. If you want to self-publish, I have a good understanding of the publishing process and design contacts.
“Ashley has that special combination of clear-sightedness and intuition, with a good view of the micro and macro of what it is that makes ‘good’ writing. Years of teaching and assessing, as well as his experience as a publisher of exciting and innovative fiction, have equipped him with the kinds of skills I know both companies and individual authors will find distinctly helpful in pulling copy for writing projects together. Ashley is an asset to TLC, and to the writing industry at large.”Aki Schilz, Director, The Literary Consultancy
