Marc Alan Holmes, Word Sleuth

I think it's important to describe my personal business ethic:

I know how hard it is to run a business, large or small. To get out there and promote yourself, to sell a product, to tout your service. That's why I will always take a personal interest in the outcome of any project I write for you. It's paramount that as a client you talk behind my back like I'm your own personal guardian angel.

Thankfully I've made this a pretty simple process.

Contact me via e-mail, phone, fax, snail mail, or homing pigeon. Whatever courier beast you happen to favor. Let me know what you have on your plate. Give me as much background material and information on the project as possible. Then I give you a quote based on my fee schedule and the project's complexity. It'll never cost you more than I quote, and sometimes WordSleuth's able to bring a job in under quote. When this happens you get to pocket the savings. Simple, no?

WordSleuth thinks it's important to mention that if the only thing you're shopping is price, I'm definitely not your man.

My fees are more than fair. If you're looking to dicker, please, head over to your local swap meet and get it out of your system. Then call me. When I'm working for you, count on getting your money's worth, usually a lot more. 'Nuff said.

You'll always be happy, even elated, with the completed job, I guarantee it. Rewrites are free within thirty (30) days of final draft submission. Provided the rewriting isn't based on changes made in the original assignment.

Sound like a mess of smarmy hooey?

Here's what others say:

"On time, on target, on budget, and a joy to work with? Forget doing my next assignment, please, WordSleuth, marry me!"

Dian H., Managing Editor, MMG, Ltd

"Working with Marc (The WordSleuth) restored my faith in outsourcing writing projects. The man has an eye for detail, humor, and concise, powerful business writing one sees once, maybe twice, in a lifetime."

Steve L., President, First Aid Consultants


"Yo, Marc! Thanks for the help. See you in L.A.!"

Jay L., Comedian and talk show host

"Initially I didn't think I'd be comfortable having a writer with such a strong comedy background tackle a technical subject like herpetology (the study of reptiles). Was I ever wrong. Count me as a satisfied customer."

Dr. William W., Herpetologist

"Thirty years in the military, twenty-five of them in Special Forces, and I've never had better medical training materials, SOPs, or manuals to work with."

Bill B., Medical NCO

Everything he said he'd do, he did. Everything we expected was surpassed. Could we be more happy with the work? In a word, no."

Chris S. D., plant superintendent, Utah American Steel

I could easily list more. But these folks are even starting to make me sick. I'm a writer, not Mother Theresa, for heaven's sake.
