Running on the Hamster Wheel
Organizing and implementing, served with a side of copywriting, and garnished with frequent follow-ups.
This is the best choice for businesses or individuals that need someone to get things done with precision and on schedule. A good example of this is email marketing or social media campaigns. Somebody has to be able to make a schedule and stick with it, tracking down all of the moving parts—pictures, prices, copy, links, schedules—and making sure those are cohesively put together and mailed. It’s not a one-time thing, either, it’s ongoing, and exhausting to someone being pulled in 20 different directions. Need help?
Storytelling & Deal Closing
Juicy words that incite action. Served on glossy 100 pound paper.
Have a smooth operation but not enough customers? Get lots of leads but low conversions? Great reputation but slow business? Your story needs a makeover—whether it’s a website, brochure, email campaign, or advertising strategy. You have the infrastructure and the credibility but you aren’t bringing in the money. That’s ok. It can be fixed.
See what you need? Drop me a line. Or, give me a ring! (If I’m asleep, I turn my ringer off. Inspired at 2:30 am? Go right ahead and leave me a message. I’ll hit you back once I’ve had my first glass of iced tea in the morning.)
Decisions, decisions! (I always order garlic vegetables and a side of fried rice. General Tso’s chicken if I’m feeling naughty.)
Here’s the big menu.
Product descriptions, brochure text, words to fill your website an incite action.
Email marketing & lead generation

Press release writing & distribution
Get your story out in a way that makes people care and act instead of delete.
Blogging & content marketing
GOOD content is still key on the internet, particularly if you want to position yourself as an expert so that potential buyers seek your products and services.
Editorial writing (articles: industry & consumer)
If you’re hiring me to do this, you probably need help ghost writing. See below.
I will write anything for you and put your name on it for the right price. As long as it’s about something legal.
Development, horticultural, and content editing
Have a big ol’ pile of words that doesn’t make a lot of sense? Need someone to Americanize your book written in the UK or Australia? Want someone to check growing information? I’m your gal.
Website design and copy
My graphics and web ninjas can make you a site from scratch and I’ll write some pretty and pretty useful words for it.
Sales & advertising
Do you need a punchy ad? How about some landing page copy? Are you trying to sell something but don’t know what a landing page is? Send me an email and we’ll chat.
Brochure/flyer/post card design & printing
There’s still a place in this world for paper. We can help you put those dead trees to good use so you don’t feel bad they were cut down.
If you’ve perused the portfolio, you know that the graphics wizards at The Garden of Words are magicians and can design pretty much anything.
Social media strategy & implementation
Love it or hate it, most businesses need a social media presence that actually ENGAGES THEIR CUSTOMERS. If you just can’t get to it, we can help.
Event planning & implementation
So this is different. Writing, writing, writing, EVENT PLANNING! Man, I love to put my organizational and marketing powers to use planning and running events. I’ve been the organizer for the largest stand up paddle race in the world and lived to tell the tale. SUP races are my specialty, but I can help plan your conference, wedding, or backyard barbecue for 400.
I have two fantastic graphic artists that work with me to produce all of your design and printing needs!
