Welcome to Amberley

You want your ideas to have staying power. But first they have to be noticed. They need to be attractive and to draw people in, like the beautiful woods in Amberley Village, the Cincinnati neighborhood where I grew up.
 
To thrive in the idea ecosystem, your ideas require some important ingredients. You provide the pith. A strong writer or editor can cultivate the necessary brevity, clarity, and punch. 
 
Amberley Communications is a one-woman independent consultancy. I specialize in writing, editing, and online content management, with some book indexing and business coaching in the mix. When clients need a wider range of publishing and marketing services, I call on others in my growing network of colleagues and collaborators.
 
I have been helping service providers and academics to make their message more accessible to the public for 13 years. My clientele has varied widely—from the Environmental Law Institute and an association of nonprofits, to the City Colleges of Chicago and multiple university presses. Lately much of my editing has been for authors whose first language isn't English.

The growing edge of my practice is online content production for nonprofits and professional-service providers. I help clients identify their audience, develop an editorial calendar, and create a steady flow of content.
 
Finally, over at Freelance Feast, I'm blogging about what I know best: operating a successful independent communications consultancy.
