Freelance Writer

search_hire_writerA freelance writer is one who holds himself out as a writer for hire on various writing projects. Scottsdale Multimedia is a professional writing company, and like a freelance writer we are in the business of writing your books. Unlike a typical freelance writer, we specialize in writing books — meaning we don’t generally write articles, ad copy, term papers, etc.

One caution about hiring a freelance writer in the present economy — many “downsized” people find themselves looking for employment without success, and suddenly stumble upon the idea of hanging out their “Writer” shingle to help bring in a little additional income. An “A” on a high school or college paper by no means qualifies one to be a professional writer. This is especially true of a book writer — a highly specialized class of writing. Scottsdale Multimedia has rejected the applications of several Ph.D. level “writers” whose university transcripts reflected stellar writing abilities — discovering upon putting them through our rigorous training program that they had no natural talent for writing books.

Scottsdale Multimedia is a writing and ghostwriting service, closely supervised by our founding writer and Editor-In-Chief, J.L. Thompson, and if you have a book that you would like to have written, we have over 25 years of experience writing, editing and publishing books like yours.

Hiring a freelance writer, a ghostwriter, or a “ghost” as we are often called, is much like hiring any other specialized professional to perform a service for you — an architect to design your home or commercial building, an attorney to help you with setting up your new business, or a doctor to help you with a sore elbow. How can you know which one will do the best job for you?

The first thing you need to know is what kind of writing does the writer for hire generally perform. If you have a book you’d like written, you need to narrow your search to writers who write books — not magazine articles or term papers. Next, you need to determine if your proposed writer has a background in your subject matter. Also, you need to learn if your would-be writer for hire is capable of capturing your unique “voice” when writing your book.

In the more than 25 years that Scottsdale Multimedia’s founders have been writing, editing and publishing books, we’ve learned that our clients have already given a lot of thought to their book writing projects before they contact us. As a result, we listen very carefully as they explain what it is they wish to convey through the writing they hire us to provide. We ask our clients to consider carefully who their intended audience is, so that we may tailor the writing to speak directly to that audience. We record our interviews so that as we perform the writing we can capture the “voice” of the client in the writing. By understanding the voice of our client and the viewpoint of the intended audience, we are able to help minds meet at a point of understanding where speaker and listener are united and the message is delivered.

Whether you need a business book, a biography, or another type of book, with over 25 years of professional writing experience we know how to bring your ideas alive on the page and make them interesting and exciting for the reader. Call us to discuss your book idea.
