  • Beta Reading
  • Research facts regarding locations, historical settings, etc.

Ghost Writing

Speaking Engagement Coordination

  • Communicate with organizations regarding your fees and availability
  • Keep a calendar and spreadsheet detailing your commitments, pertinent details, contact information, cost, and contract status
  • Create detailed itineraries for easy reference

In my experience, this can be a very time-consuming task due to all the back and forth with dates and questions. Delegating this task alone can save you hours!
