I hired Bruce Davis and Around HIS Image Publishing to publish a book for me, a novice writer. After making a few other contacts with less than desirable results I made contact with Bruce Davis. I had no clue what I needed to do except write but he and the Around Him team made it an awesome experience, holding my hand throughout the entire process. With God's confirmation we've been working together and I have nothing but admiration and respect for him as a person and business man. If you find yourself in need of a marketing company or publisher he is the right person.

A thorough, smart, detail-oriented and conscientious writer with an approachable, yet informative style. Excellent with deadlines and budgets. Very receptive to input and revision. Communicates needs, progress and updates effectively and efficiently. As writers go, Jessica is one of the most disciplined with her work and one of the most astute at understanding the needs of business owners. She is a professional through and through... and truly a value in the market of reliable writers.

Dorothy Potter Snyder was the editor of my book "Significant! From Frustrated to Franne-tastic. Inspirational Stories for the entrepreneurial woman." Dorothy worked with me over a period of four months. a) Reviewed and edited my book b) Challenged me to consider the reader's perspective. c) Introduced effective ways of communicating my message. d) Shared resources to facilitate the final book production. Dorothy was personable, encouraging and professional, and with her impeccable standards, held me accountable for producing a book that was clearly written. i enjoyed working with Dorothy and would highly recommend her to writers who are looking for an editor with integrity.

Diane worked direct for me as a Tech Writer at DRI corp. She was an invaluable addition to the company and brought order and clarity to all documentation, internal as well as external. She quickly picked up the technical aspects and then inventoried and made a gap analysis of the documentation set. She then worked diligently and effectively with all SME's to close the gaps and reform the entire set of product documentation, with minimal guidance, including technical content and adaptation to specific audiences. I can highly recommend Diane!

As a freelance writer, researcher and editor, Kat consistently and reliably turns in polished, professional grade work, on time, without fail. I recently hired her to do some research and copy writing for Carolina Partners in Mental Health Care; she finished every assignment well within the deadlines, taking painstaking care to craft well-written, exhaustively-researched pieces without typos or grammatical errors. I now consider her a go-to resource for our company. Kat is highly communicative - if she has questions, she will get in touch with you right away, to ensure that she goes into any assignment with all the requisite information. In short, Kat is a good writer, a hard worker, and a delightful person to work with. I cannot recommend her skills enough.

About

I have an undergraduate degree in industrial and systems engineering, and a Juris Doctor from a prominent law school. I practiced law for almost 30 years, during which time, it was necessary for me to generate many written documents both for the court and in the form of reports to my corporate clients. I was on the editorial board of a prominent legal publication, and published a section of a guide used by attorneys for continuing education purposes. Additionally, in my capacity as a partner in various large law firms, it was necessary for me to edit and critique the writing of numerous young attorneys over the years. In recent years, I served as an English and writing instructor at the community college level. For over five years, I have maintained a Google Blogspot blog, The View from Outside My Tiny Window. Additionally, I recently published an e-book, Starting Your Business – The Fundamentals: A Comprehensive, Thinking Business Owner’s Guide, which can be found on Amazon.com. As a result of my experience, I have extensive writing skills. I can generate all sorts of legal documents, both litigation and transactional in nature, and I can perform numerous paralegal functions. Outside of the legal domain, I can perform a number of different tasks, including, but not limited to, the following: (a) generate blog or other web site content; (b) generate timelines after the review of documents; (c) generate difficult and complex letters; (d) organize and summarize voluminous documents; (e) edit scholastic papers; (f) write speeches; (g) simplify complex documents; (h) write articles for various publications and newsletters; and (i) generate business policy and manuals. As you can see, I have a wide range of experience in many different fields.

Hi! My name is Kathy Lyday and I am "The Writer's Friend." I have a Ph.D in English and I am a tenured university professor with nearly 40 years of experience teaching classes as diverse as grammar, literature, and linguistics. My writing and editing team's associates (professionals, not students) have varied degrees and backgrounds in areas such as biology, psychology, anthropology, and fashion history, design, and curation. Other expertise may be accessible to us if needed. Our experience includes writing and editing both scholarly and non-scholarly works on a variety of subject matter. This encompasses fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. Our editing services can be as simple as basic grammar and sentence structure and as complex as research and content advice and are priced accordingly. Time frames for completion, of course, vary depending on length and complexity of individual projects. We recognize the importance you place on your work and treat it with every bit of the value you give it. We view every endeavor as a new opportunity!
