eBook Conversions

In Q1 of 2011, Amazon sold more eBooks than they did hard-copies. Indeed, the publishing industry as a whole is struggling to react to the eBook revolution sweeping across the entire planet. If you have a manuscript (published or not) that you'd like to see made iPad, iPhone, Nook and Kindle-capable, I can make it happen. While it's true that Amazon and Smashwords can convert submitted files into the .MOBI format to be ready for sale, the fact is that the output you get is mediocre at best. Want to play in the big leagues? Then you want a professional, high-quality, tested and guaranteed eBook conversion that is certain to look and read just as good as your hard-copy.picture

Creative Writing

Being able to take abstract ideas and convert them into concrete writing is not a skill everyone has. With both short stories, novels, radio scripts and teleplays under my belt, if you need creative writing, I can get the job done. I rely upon an eclectic background where neither genre nor medium is an issue. I can't say I've done it all, but I can say that I can accomplish what you need once I have an idea of what you want for the end-product. Don't forget, creative writing can be applicable to many business applications as well. Commercials can be stories, and marketing material can be a tale that relates the experiences of your consumers. Creative writing is not just for entertainment, it's an effective means of relating to your target market and catering to their interests.

eBook Conversions

It's true that commercial websites like Amazon.com and Smashwords provide conversion engines to take a manuscript from raw content to an eBook. Many authors are going that route, and if you know the ins and outs of using styles in your source-material, you can do very well using this method. All it costs you is the time to do the conversion and the review of the output. However, most source-material is not formatted specifically for eBook conversion, and without it you will end up with an unprofessional-looking eBook. On top of this, you end up going back and forth between output files and your source-file trying to patch strange formatting issues in eBooks. Don't trust a computer to do your eBook conversions. Have a professional do it for you and guarantee the results.

Editing

Know the difference between there, their and they're? Can you spot it in your manuscript every single time and edit it out? Do you know how to use commas, colons and semi-colons correctly without confusing your reader? RuneWright adopts the standards of the Chicago Manual of Style and only deviates from them at your request and for specific business reasons. Consistency is key, and your reader should be able to rely on tight, professional prose and content that is clear, informative and/or entertaining without throwing them grammatical or stylistic curveballs that slow or interrupt the flow of reading. Additionally, some manuscripts need a little more care than others. Perhaps your plot-curve is a little flat, or your dialogue suffers from "talking head" syndrome. Maybe your protagonists and antagonists are two-dimensional, and you need to give them a little pizzazz. No matter what your manuscript needs, RuneWright can provide the polish to spice up any writing.

Policy & Process Writing

Policy and process writing requires several disciplines to do correctly. First and foremost, it requires concise and clear writing that provides maximum information with a minimum of words. Beyond that, policy and process writing requires an understanding of both business and people. With 17 years in the professional world and a management level understanding of human resources, RuneWright policy and process writing will provide your business or agency exactly what it needs, from HR policies to technical processes and everything in between. If you're going to hold people accountable to following the rules, be certain that the rules are clear enough for them to understand and short enough for them to keep reading.

Publishing

Seeing your fiction and non-fiction in print can be a daunting undertaking. In today's world, there are basically two routes to take, self-publishing through a print-on-demand platform or going through traditional in-line presses. Knowing when and why to use both is not something everyone understands. RuneWright can help you make the best business decision for the production of your book to make sure you're costs are as low as possible and your output is as professional a possible. Don't leave decisions like cover stock, paper type, binding method, distribution channels or delivery time-lines up to guesswork or a vendor who's more interested in a paycheck than your life's work. If you're going to publish, have a professional in your corner who cares about what your book will look like, how well it will read and what your costs will be.

SEO Content Writing

Do you know what a keyword is? What about keyword density? Are you familiar with what Google looks for or even that Google has a complex ranking system that rates virtually every single webpage on the Internet. RuneWright has spent the past two years looking at SEO (search engine optimization) and works very hard to understand how to increase page ratings. When it comes to natural search (when someone "Googles" something), there is only one place to be: first in the search results, or at least on the first page. Anything beyond that is totally ineffective. Additionally, reverse searches of keywords and key terms can expose under-utilized terms that can help you monetize your website more quickly and effectively.

Technical Writing & Documentation

Seventeen years in Information Technology has provided me with an exceptional understanding of effective technical documentation. Technical writing is not like any other writing process. It is basically software for the human brain, helping that brain understand what it needs to do in order to achieve a result, especially when interfacing with technology. Perhaps you have a software platform that requires help guides either on-line or in a booklet. Or maybe you have a piece of hardware that requires assembly or is complex enough to require step-by-step instructions on configuring or using the device? RuneWright has an extensive background in technical writing and can serve both you and your customers by writing clear, logical and easy-to-read instructions, guides and specifications that don't leave the reader scratching his or her head.

Training

Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved.
