Davenport, IA, April 16, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- The Wordsy Woman, Jodie Toohey, has launched a new division of her Wordsy Woman Word Sales and Services company. The Author Services division helps authors and soon-to-be authors from pre-idea to reader with craft advice, editing and proofreading services, and marketing planning services. Toohey says, “I realized that writing is a passion I can no longer deny. And part of that passion is a belief that my purpose in the world is to help people say what they want to say, whether that’s as a reader of things I write or helping them write their own stories.”
Her website, http://www.wordsywomanforauthors.com, features weekly posts about the writing craft, editing and proofreading, book marketing, and interviews with authors about book marketing. She also has a Do-It-Yourself section with suggested reading and resources, offers free downloadable reports, and is always open to hearing from writers. “I just love to talk to people about writing – in person or written correspondence. I’m usually pretty quiet, but when it comes to writing, I’m a conversationalist,” Toohey says.
Toohey has an MBA from the University of Iowa as well as a marketing certificate. She’s a member of Midwest Writing Center where she also volunteers, serves as Vice-President of its Board of Directors, and performs contract marketing work. She has taught several writing workshops including creative writing for beginners, making money writing online, book marketing, and a workshop for past and present military personnel. Toohey is the author of four published books; two poetry collections - Crush and Other Love Poems for Girls (2008; 2nd Edition 2015) and Other Side of Crazy (2013, 918studio) - and two novels - Missing Emily: Croatian Life Letters (2013) and Melody Madson - May It Please the Court? (2014). Her third novel, Taming the Twisted, is planned for release later this year.
