Village Service for Authors
Milford on Sea now has a consultancy service for authors and writers. Fortunately, I have no involvement, so serious writers will benefit and the grammar will be fine.
Wordshaker is run by Sandra Cain and offers a variety of means and methods to help you on your writing adventures, including copy editing, structural advice and manuscript appraisal, ghost-writing, training in e-publishing, copywriting, creative writing workshops, author talks and book promotion and marketing.
Sandra is an author, senior lecturer, and a regular contributor at writing festivals and international conferences. She has also written many books, fiction, non-fiction, children's, young adult and academic. Working alongside Sandra are a number of high profile writers, authors, screenwriters, film-makers and social media experts.
Sandra says; “Wordshaker offers a full service writing consultancy alongside our e-publishing arm. We are happy to hear from any aspiring authors who would like to learn how to write, format and upload their books to Amazon's Kindle e-reader. We also offer a full marketing consultancy from blog tours to designing and developing book trailers. We are lucky that Milford is a literary village full of wonderful writers and aspiring writers. Milford is a truly inspirational place to live.”
That’s getting me thinking, a book on ‘The Adventures of an Idiot in Milford on Sea’ could be my first top-seller. Perhaps my wife would be happy to type it up for me? I will ask her when I have sufficient courage.
If putting pen to paper is your thing, Wordshaker will be running a full one day workshop teaching aspiring writers how to design their book cover, write their blurb, format and upload their book to Amazon's Kindle.
