I’m in Toronto, Canada last week through this week working with a major writing client.  WebsiteBox.com and I have a 3+ year relationship, and I’m working with them in rolling out a new vertical product line with major writing requirements.

I appreciate clients who need regular work, as it helps to smooth the sometimes roller coaster income of a freelance writer.  I just finished one book as a ghost writer for another client and starting another soon.  Work is good for you.

First Time Home Buyers Book

Finally, I’m not a ghost!  While I’ve ghost written several books, I’m pleased to announce a book of my own for Turner Publishing Company that presents tips for first time home buyers.  The title is “70 Things First-time Home Buyers Need to Know.”  It’s detailed, taking the first time buyer from the decision to rent or buy, through the search for properties, then through the steps and documents in the transaction.

The book was released September 28th, and is available for sale at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble,  and Borders.com.

eBook Project – New Lease-To-Own Program for Homes

lease to ownI’ve just completed an eBook ghost writing project about a new concept in lease-to-own for the purchase of homes. The Realtor® eBook is about 52 pages, while there are ancillary reports for Sellers, Buyers and Investors, each averaging around 19 pages.

I used photos, screen shots and did the cover design for this eBook, targeted at real estate professionals to get them to sign up and participate in the program. Approximately 65,000 words.

I’ve placed dozens of articles about real estate investing at my About.com Real Estate Business site. You can get a very clear idea of my real estate investment knowledge and writing style by looking over a few of the articles at the link.  They cover real estate investment topics including:

  • Buying and selling right
  • Valuation and evaluation techniques
  • Managing properties
  • Marketing rentals
  • Landlording instruction
  • Home  Price Indexes and their interpretation
  • Real Estate Investment Trusts

Business Management and Growth Articles

When it comes to entrepreneurship, starting, growing and managing a business, I’ve done it several times.  I’ve been my own boss my entire adult life.  Writing about business and how make it successfully are my specialty.

Whether it’s starting up, customer development, marketing, advertising, technology, and so much more, get a thorough look at my knowledge and writing ability by checking out the many articles I’ve placed (all are mine) at the About.com site.

Basic Real Estate Business and Startup Articles

I do a huge amount of instructional writing for Realtors just starting in the business.  Subjects range from basic property and ownership information to developing a business plan, financial planning, marketing budgeting and more.

Here is a link to a full section of my new real estate agent articles.

Consumer Real Estate Articles on Constant Content

Though I don’t get to place an article up on Constant Content very often due to time, it is a site for writing articles on speculation, and buyers find them and make a purchase. Now and then, I misunderstand what a client desires, and my article misses the mark. It’s no problem, as we clarify the project and I write another one for them.

When I have an unsold article, I place it up on Constant Content with the pen name RealEstateWriter. Here is a link to the articles I have up that are available for purchase.
