Author Support │ Editing │Writing
The right words, crafted well, are powerful in moving humans towards action. Your words in your books, reports, marketing materials and website are your tools to convey your message and vision to your audience and make an impact. Perhaps you are wishing to step out as a leader and influencer in your chosen field - to be a Beacon of Light!
You may wish to:
leave a legacy
follow a calling to share an uplifting or empowering message
share your life story and lessons to help others
share your expertise to grow your business
educate and empower your clients
hook your ideal client
polish up a resume, report or submission to put your best foot forward.
Or maybe you are seeking healing for yourself and others through journalling and writing.
I am Wendy Millgate-Stuart, Editor and founder of Wendy & Words. I walk with you towards accomplishing your writing and publishing goals through my customised editing and writing skills and author support and mentoring. I am creative, intuitive and dedicated - and professional. While I began this journey primarily as an editor, my 10 years of editorial experience and client engagement have provided me with the knowledge to also help with writing, re-writing, and author mentoring and support.
I only take on a certain number of books per year, so that I can give my clients and their words the care and nurturing that they need, and that I do too! I love seeing my clients stepping up to be Beacons of Light, sharing their wisdom, insight and stories gleaned through life.
It is essential to book ahead with me. Trusted editors and publishing colleagues in the industry work collaboratively with me, so if I am unable to work on your book in your required time frame, let's still talk. I may have someone who can assist - often with me still walking alongside you as a sounding board and cheerleader - or even sharing certain stages of the editing process!
My most popular book categories are:
self-help and psychology
spirituality and religion
health, fitness and nutrition
memoir and life story
business and marketing
Regarding fiction editing, I will only proofread or copy edit text adult fiction that has been through one or more stages of editing by a professional fiction editor including an appraisal. I do not edit children's books.
In the business and corporate sector I provide editing and writing services to the Queensland Government arts and museum departments, CSIRO, secondary high schools, non-profit organisations and small-to-medium businesses. I am also a contracting editor to Author Support Services.
Integral to success is having a clear strategy based on well-founded principles and planning to bring all the right ingredients together for the desired result. A Book Planning & Strategy Session can save you countless hours and dollars in writing, re-writing and editing.
Let's get clarity on your message and content now, and the publishing direction you're going in. Book a one-on-one session geared just for you.
"Thanks for today. I feel reconnected again with my book and the process."
