At Writing That Hits the Mark, I help innovators in different fields develop the books, blogs, and other media platforms that build their brand. I specialize in developmental editing across a range of media, and in nonfiction book proposal writing. I am very skilled at helping organizations determine how to plan content to engage the different "sub-groups" within the larger target audience. I also excel at helping authors organize their material and create the "through-line" that makes the blog, article, or book a smooth read from start to finish.
