My name is Lori Goshert, and I am a freelance writer, ghostwriter, and editor living in Fort Myers, Florida. Thank you for stopping by on your travels through the World Wide Web. Please visit my blog (the link is in the upper right corner of this page) to see samples of my writing.
I’ve been writing all my life and love the art and science of arranging words in the best way possible for the topic and audience. I can help you with your book, essay, or article through ghostwriting, rewriting, line editing, or copy editing.
I love research and can write about a wide range of subjects, using the client’s own or preferred voice. My favorite topics are music, nature and the environment, social issues, the arts, travel, food, and culture.
As a ghostwriter, I can research and write a book, article, or essay under your name. I can also take your outline, interviews, and research materials and turn them into a book. I have done both fiction and nonfiction but prefer nonfiction for these tasks.
Have you written something but don’t like the way it flows? Or do you need more detail? I can rewrite your work, adding realistic dialog, sensory details, transitions, or extra scenes. I perform this service for both fiction and nonfiction. This may also be the route you wish to take if you are not a native English speaker but want to sound like one.
I can perform line or copy editing for fiction and nonfiction. Terms for editing processes vary, but I define line editing as going through your work and making your sentences and paragraphs sing. I will make sure the dialog in your story is realistic, eliminate “filler” words, and use verbs and sensory descriptions that draw the reader in.
Copy editing involves correcting grammar, spelling, and punctuation, as well as making sure your style remains consistent throughout your work. I am most familiar with Chicago Manual of Style and APA, but I can work with other style guides.
If you would like to discuss a ghostwriting or editing project, please use the contact form and I will get back to you promptly.
