I help writers in three main ways:

Do you need help with book proposals or marketing your self-published book? I can help with that, too.

On a customized project basis, I’ve helped authors with:

  • post-publication marketing plans
  • creating a social media campaign and calendar
  • identifying and reaching out to media and influencers for interviews and guest posts
  • I’ve even made some pretty snazzy promo videos!

Here are some testimonials from former clients:

Easy to work with, spent a good amount of time communicating with me to understand my project as it evolved. – Bill R., reality programmer (multimedia project proposal)

I really enjoyed working with Jocelyn. She is professional and trustworthy. I loved her enthusiasm about my project. Thank you! – Alina Z., health coach (memoir/lifestyle book editing)

Brilliant writer and very creative. Was able to jump right into a very complicated project and deliver beyond our expectations. – Michael S., writer-producer (show bible and television scripts)

There’s no “right” way to be a writer. You find your way as you work on your craft, send your words out into the world and receive feedback from your readers.

I went the MFA route. I’ve worked with literary journals, and I’ve also written for trade magazines, newspapers, documentaries, corporate clients, and I ghostwrote a book about the history of diplomacy in Iran. In recent years, I’ve been a book and newspaper editor, and I currently run a magazine.

At the end of the day, whether you’re writing creative nonfiction, lifestyle articles or the story of your life–if you’ve ever put words on a page, then you’re a writer. Own it! 🙂

I’m here to help you build confidence in your work and move you forward on your writing journey.
