Writing your first business book can be daunting. You want to demonstrate your expertise and authority and become a thought leader in your field but you don't know where to start.
You've heard of outlining but you're not sure how to do it, or how to appeal to the type of reader you want to attract.
Or perhaps you've hit a stumbling block in the writing process or you're not sure if what you've written is good enough.
That's where I can help. My fixed-fee program will give you the tools and the confidence to finish writing your book.
I'll give you a solid start on your author journey without the long-term commitment and high fees typically associated with developmental editing.
I can help you clearly define your book's structure so you'll be able to write it more quickly and publish it sooner. An unpublished book is no help to your business, so don't wait until your rivals publish theirs first.
You'll get 3 months of 1-2-1 mentoring, including 4 Zoom sessions, and the option to purchase additional sessions if you need them.
I'll show you how to attract ebook readers on the world's biggest bookstore—Amazon's Kindle Store—using data-driven insights. I compile them using Publisher Rocket, the industry-leading analytics tool.
I love helping entrepreneurs all over the world write better business books. Continue scrolling to see if I can help you and to find out more about my background.
I offer my program for a fixed fee, quoted below in British Pounds. Reedsy converts this figure into your own currency when you go through the quote process.
🏗️ BOOK BUILDER: a -3-month 1-2-1 mentorship program
What you can expect from me:
✔️ A framework for planning the structure of your book to make it easier to write
✔️ Detailed feedback on between 2 and 4 completed chapters (or up to 10,000 words in total)
✔️ Kindle Store analytics data from Publisher Rocket, a professional publishing tool
✔️ Face-to-face discussion at a mutually convenient time
📗 4 x 60-minute Zoom calls
📒 "Homework" exercises before the 1st and 2nd Zoom calls
📘 Remote support for your questions over Reedsy messenger.
❌ Don’t sign up to my program if:
• You’re unwilling to start over, because the first 2 Zoom calls are devoted exclusively to chapter structure and market positioning
• You can’t commit to 4 Zoom calls within 3 months. It’s really important to keep up your momentum.
• You're looking for detailed feedback on every chapter you write. After 4 Zoom calls you should have written and received detailed feedback and action points for 2-4 chapters.
➕ Optional extras:
Additional 60-minute Zoom call for £150 per call.
You can schedule Zoom calls for feedback on additional chapters after the 3-month program has ended. I'll review up to 4,000 words, submitted in advance. You don't have to pay now: simply book them in when you've finished the main program.
👨🏫 About me:Your book is in safe hands. I help authors publish books that cement their authority as thought leaders. In 2020, The Art of Healthcare Innovation, which I edited for US author Christina D Warner, won a gold medal at the Axiom Business Book Awards.
I've worked with words for over 20 years, formerly editing market-leading business-to-business and consumer magazines. They included South West Business Insider, and the popular science magazines BBC Focus and BBC Sky at Night.
A long time ago, I gained a postgraduate diploma in journalism from Cardiff University. Before that, I studied for a degree in physics. But I quickly found out that I'm better with words than equations.
I'm proud to call Bristol, in the beautiful South West of the UK, my home and it's where I've lived with my wife for over 12 years.
I came up with the idea for a magazine based on the long-running BBC series The Sky At Night and launched it in 2005. TV programme presenters Sir Patrick Moore and Chris Lintott were regular contributors. As Editor, I worked with the Royal Observatory Greenwich to set up the Astronomy Photographer of the Year competition, for which I served on the judging panel.
I combine book writing and editing with journalism, contributing to a range of publications and providing SEO-friendly copywriting for businesses, marketing and PR agencies.
I edited South West Business Insider, a monthly business-to-business magazine, for 18 months. The role involved writing and commissioning content for each issue, as well as facilitating business events across the South West region.
As Editor of the UK’s top-selling monthly science magazine, I oversaw a team producing content for print
and app editions, plus a podcast, website and social media. In 2012, I oversaw a redesign to refresh the
brand and provide an improved environment for advertisers. I added new writers including Dr Helen Czerski, who was shortlisted for Columnist of the Year at the 2014 PPA Awards.

● Forged a media partnership with the University of the West of England for its Science Writing Competition 2015
● Member of judging panel for International Images for Science 2015 competition (Royal Photographic Society)
