Authors: writers who need a buddy, they are at the stage where they need someone to be a mix of editor, beta reader, critic (but not too much), marketing advisor, and of course cheer leader.
Publications: magazines, websites, blogs - who need a writer to create content for Jo Bloggs - a writer who is your average person on the street, who is in reality Jo Bloggs ,with a good grasp of words.
GENRES OF INTEREST
Perhaps it's easier to say what isn`t on my list. I`ve never been able to read horror books. Books with violence in them aren`t for me. I don`t think erotica is a strength of mine.
Sometimes I surprise myself. I`ve just assisted with a great novel with Zombies as the main characters. A historical novel is on my laptop. I`m learning so much about Budapest from another client.
