“ Leeza was wonderful to work with. She supported me every step of the way, getting my books from the idea stage all the way through to publishing.

Alison Simpson Testimonial Assisted Author Services

ALISON SIMPSON

- The MumFit Book and Ee Bah Gum – The Yorkshireman -

"Working with Leeza has opened my eyes to a new way of seeing and ultimately, writing. Her attention to flow and structure is impeccable and her grasp of the story theme is faultless. Leeza has a gentle approach when suggesting options to wording and paragraphs and is always mindful of keeping the writers voice in the fore. I am so glad I handed my manuscript over to Leeza to be the first person to read it. Handing my memoir over left me feeling vulnerable and I am grateful that I trusted my instincts to work with Leeza."

What's Stopping You?

I don't have the time:

then this is perfect for you because we do it for you. We can help you find the time needed to work with us and let us do the hard work for you.

I don't have the money:

save your money. If you really want something you will find a way to achieve it.

I'm not a writer:

You don’t have to be a writer. You may only want to write one book for your family or to promote your business. Totally Ok. That’s why we offer mentoring and ghostwriting services to help you achieve whatever your writing goals are. Everyone is different and we try to cater to what people need.

I'm worried:

I’m worried about what people will think of me or my story – this is normal. You have to think about your bigger vision for your book. Why are your writing it? Can it help or inspire people? Is it a legacy for your family? When you have a bigger vision, it will motivate you to start and to finish your book.

What about defamation?

I’m worried about defamation or being sued – some people are concerned about what they can actually write about if their story is challenging and involves other people. We can guide you and direct you to the appropriate legal services if needed. There are ways to write your story without it being defamatory to others.

I'm not sure I have a "story":

Oh, you have a story alright. Everyone does. But not everyone knows how to get that story down on paper and turn it into something that people want to read. We do. So let us help you bring that story to life.

About Leeza and Her Team


Leeza has a Masters in Communication (Creative Writing) a Diploma of Education and a Bachelor of Arts in English/History. She has extensive experience as a freelance writer, editor, mentor, creative writing teacher and ghostwriter. Leeza has also self-published her memoir and other books and is passionate about helping people get their stories out into the world.

There are a lot of books out there that are only worthy to wipe your backside with because people don’t value the time and effort it takes to create a quality book. A book sells if it’s well written, edited by a professional editor and has a good cover design. Then you need to market it.

Leeza works closely with her small team of professionals to ensure high standards and that the project goes smoothly. Here are some of Leeza’s books:
