When deadlines loom, projects back up, or you just don't have the time or skill to write it yourself, it makes good business sense to hire a freelance writer.

With the amount of written material required by business today, even companies with in-house writers can find themselves overwhelmed with approaching deadlines and multiple projects. And when you want, or are required, to write that article or book, you may find the task daunting with the time it takes and the skill needed to create a product that satisfies what you want to get across to your readers or customers. That's where a freelance writer comes in.

I am a freelance writer, author, copywriter, and ghostwriter for a myriad of topics. I specialize in communicating highly technical information to the general lay person. I fulfill your needs so every memo, brochure, user manual, training manual, advertisement, newsletter, website, blog, article, or book, regardless of subject matter, conveys the exact message of what you want your internal and external customers to hear, understand, and learn. Whether it is a user manual for a new handheld two-way radio or other product, serious or witty product descriptions, an article on customer service for a trade magazine, a how-to book, or copy for a company newsletter or website, I can deliver the message quickly and effectively in the tone and slant you require.

Copywriting - The more structured language of business communications means that your image is on the line. From ad copy to commercial books to user manuals, your print material says a lot about your company. Sometimes your communications department may need some unbiased outside help with the creation of work. Maybe you are just overwhelmed with projects and need to outsource to alleviate the workload. You may feel that the input of a freelancer can inject a new or fresh voice into your publications or website. The use of freelance writing and editing services can save you time and money, improve your image, and help to get your ideas and information out to your clients and customers.
I can help you with:
- writing user manuals for products. (My specialty is in radio communications and other electronic devices)
- product descriptions, from the deadly serious to the outrageously funny, and everything in between
- producing reports and press releases
- creating advertising material such as magazine ad copy and brochures
- creating copy, rewriting, or updating the copy on your website
- writing newsletters, books, and articles
- ghostwriting any type of document or manuscript
- many other projects

Ghostwriting - Sometimes, a celebrity, public figure, or a person of noteworthiness (such as a company president, a politician, or an expert in a particular field), is contacted by a publishing house or magazine to write a book or article, or themselves wish to write a book or an article. It may be an autobiography, a magazine article, a book on their industry or occupation, or maybe even a novel or other work of fiction. Some have the writing skill to be able to do it on their own. Others need help in compiling and producing an effective written product. Others don't want to be involved in the writing process at all. You may already have an offer or contract with a publisher to provide your material. Alternately, you may want to pitch your proposal or material to a publisher for consideration For those who need help or just want it done, I am the one who can bring your idea to fruition. 

Collaborative writing with you would be either an "as told to" or a "with/and" aspect. An "as told to" collaboration involves you relating your ideas, notes, and writings to me, telling me your story or your idea, and I craft the writing product for you. The name on the project would be similar to "Nobody Knows Me Better: The Autobiography of John Doe, as told to Phillip J. Boucher", or "Industrial Espionage and the CEO: Protecting the Company's Assets, by John Doe, as told to Phillip J. Boucher". The reader understands that you provided the material for the work, and I wrote it. A "with" or "and" collaboration involves the both of us participating in the writing project, developing ideas together, do the writing, re-writing, and editing. "Silver Sent, by John Doe, with Phillip J. Boucher" or "Silver Sent, by John Doe and Phillip J. Boucher". A "with" suggests that you are the main writer of the work, with me as more of a minor player in the creating of the work. An "and" suggests that both you and I contributed equally to the creation of the work. 

Ghostwriting projects can involve your participation in any extent at all, from a full-blown interview about your life or your completed fiction draft, to just presenting an idea and having me create it. Regardless, with pure ghostwriting, I am never mentioned on or about the product. You are perceived as the person who has created the work exclusively.  

My extended services for celebrities, public figures, and notables include:
- an enforceable confidentiality agreement, and total confidentiality regarding you and your project and the utmost respect for your privacy or position
- acknowledging your fame and popularity without being "star struck" by it or by you. As such, temper-tantrums or other such outbursts are not tolerated
- ability to contact me via email, fax, or phone at anytime day or night, to make an inquiry or provide information
- fair and honest feedback even if it is not what you want to hear
- Canadian slant if so desired for Canadian born clients
