Alan has a gift with words and an ability to lead his audience in a sometimes unexpected direction within the safety of not feeling forced to immediately arrive at his same conclusion. That may seem counterintuitive and perhaps even counterproductive when it comes to bringing thoughts and ideas to text, but it is effective in ways that will surprise you. His writing is persuasive but not demanding, compelling but not coercive. As a lover of placing thoughts into written form, I see multiple levels of value in Alan's ability to do the same.Oct 3, 2019
Alan’s “think outside the box” methodology had me at hello. Read his book, Unveiled, to find out why for yourself. After I read it, I bought 100 to share with friends, family, and whoever crossed my path...because it made such an impact on my interpretations of absolutes that I discovered weren’t absolutes at all. Funny thing...the first edition printing had a punctuation error on the very last page, very last sentence of the book!!! I was so distraught!!! Until, I realized I was more concerned about the grammatical punthan I was the content offered. My bad! Go. Find the book online. Read it for yourself. All who “wonder” aren’t lost. ~Deborah VinsonOct 2, 2019
Working with Mr Smith has been a unique experience for me due to the quality and professionalism of his work. When reviewing my project, Mr Smith gave feedback that was insightful as well as motivating which allowed me to move beyond the basics and transform my project into something remarkable. Mr Smith was always prompt and provided an invaluable service.Oct 1, 2019Alan Smith / Editing, Ghostwriting's reply
Thank you, Twyla!
Alan is a great communicator. He has a gift for drawing readers into his world and keeping them interested in what he has to say. He has an educated mastery of the English language that would be a benefit to any work that he gave his time to. Alan is also a kind and generous man and a pleasure to work with.Oct 2, 2019Alan Smith / Editing, Ghostwriting's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?In most cases, rates fall within the following parameters: Proofreading - .04 per word Substantive Editing - .07 per word Short Form Content Creation : .09+ per word Ghostwriting: .30+ per word Pricing is based solely on the custom requirements of your project. Once I review your needs, I will email a bid outlining the project timeline, deliverables, and pricing structure. Half of the contracted price will be due to begin the project, with the balance due upon completion.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The entire process is collaborative and generally moves through these steps: 1) Assessment, 2) Contract, 3) Editing/Rewriting/Review/Repeat 4) Project Completion. I work remotely and meetings are conducted via phone or Zoom. If a client is local to Dallas / Fort Worth, in person meetings are an option as well.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?For the past 25 years I have been a pastor, author, speaker, and adjunct instructor. In these roles I have dealt with many aspects of the written word, including writing and editing books, blogs, speeches, web copy, and various marketing materials. My main qualification, however, is that I love to read.
