“When I first decided to write a book, I was unsure of everything. I had a story to tell but was unsure of how to even begin. Laura gave me direction and was able to create a flow to my book, helping me fill in what was needed and editing out what was not. I can honestly say I would have never stayed on track to finish it had it not been for her guidance and support. I felt I had full control, yet she provided ideas and suggestions. If I have the opportunity to write another book, Laura will be the first person I call!”
– Lori Suthar, Author of Joshua’s Missing Peace
“My name is Antonio Francesca and I am a novelist. In the past 10 years I have come to work on and create various writing projects with Laura Sherman. The most memorable collaboration concerned my fast selling novel called The Card House which is being sold today at Barnes and Noble.
“Collaboration in writing something original like The Card House is a broad word that could mean a little or a lot. In my case it was a lot. From the very beginning Laura worked with my creative ideas and between us we fashioned a first-rate novel. I cannot give her enough praise as one can see with my heartfelt acknowledgements seen on the first page of the novel.
“Today I am negotiating with a West Coast film producer for three original manuscripts and all have had Laura’s input and writing genius attached to them.
“I hope that the future for me and my writings will always have Laura right there creating every step of the way.”
– Antonio Francesca, President and CEO, Ironbound Films, Inc.
“When I decided to write my memoirs, I researched various ghostwriters. Laura Sherman was personally referred to me, so I looked into her thoroughly online. I also called three people from her testimonials page. They all did nothing but praise her work and express their satisfaction. After interviewing her, I was sold.
“Working with Laura has been a true pleasure. She is patient, competent, thoughtful, and extremely dedicated. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to write a book!”
– John Guttmann, senior executive financial adviser

“Laura is the ideal Ghostwriter. I have seen her take a dull writing project and make it sparkle with life, interest, and readability. She is a rarity in the Ghostwriting arena. She tackles a writing job as if it was her own. She breathes the identity and personality of the author into it by knowing how to absorb the author’s purpose and voice. Her broad background, wit, writing skills, and high intelligence go a long way to giving the client a product that is in a stellar class.”
– Lawrence Sledge, Ghostwriter
“Laura and I recently began our professional relationship, and we hit it off immediately.

– Karen Cole, Ghost Writer, Inc.
“We hired Laura to write articles using the depth and breadth of her knowledge of the home loan industry and we couldn’t be more pleased with the work she produced. Laura can come up with ideas like no other. She can slice and dice a subject a million ways and still come up with something new to say. Her work is always of the highest professional caliber, on time, and error free. I can’t recommend her enough.”
– Diana Lundin, Senior Editor at Move.com
“When my partner and I decided to write a book, we interviewed many ghostwriters. Some were very inexpensive, while others were too pricey for our budget. Laura wasn’t the least expensive writer, but we chose her because she was so passionate about writing.
“We needed a very quick turnaround time. Laura made it clear that as long as we cooperated, she would finish the book on time. And she did! Laura went above and beyond our expectations. She even included her own business experience into various chapters, giving us the informative book we wanted. I am very pleased with all her work and will continue to use her for my future writing needs. Thank you, Laura, and may God keep blessing you!”
– Edwin Carrion, Founder of Infinity Jewelers

“Laura Sherman is a talented ghostwriter with savvy business expertise—a powerful combination. As a motivated newcomer to this field, I have greatly appreciated her willingness to share her wealth of knowledge. Her coaching has helped me to hone a strong focus for my writing business, fine tune my marketing materials, and develop my approach to discussing projects with clients. Her responses are immediate—I sometimes wonder when she eats or sleeps. J Her feedback is always right on the mark, targeting the next best step for me to take to continue to grow, as a writer and as a businesswoman…heck, as a human being! I would highly recommend her as a coach. Her positivity and support is tempered with just the right dose of no-nonsense pragmatism.”
– Kyle Cushman
“I’m a beginning ghostwriter and I was previously working for as little as two cents per word from just one regular client. I had no idea of the way in which my client had taken advantage. Thanks to Laura’s guidance, I’m in the process of growing my portfolio and increasing my rates. She’s given me the confidence to be not just a writer but a businesswoman. She did NOT just tell me whatever I wanted to hear; she told me what I had to do to be successful. I had my doubts that such simple ‘tricks’ would work, but I’m being proven wrong.”
– Shayn Nicely
“I recently spent twenty minutes on the phone speaking with Laura and I have to say, I was most struck by her candidness and professionalism. Right off the bat, she let me know that her goal was simply to be as transparent as she possibly could, that she was not afraid of losing trade secrets or ideas to a competitor. She listened attentively and spoke frankly, guiding me as a friend who has traveled the path ahead and wants another to succeed as well. And that is what I valued most. She was a friend. And while she knew more about the business and technical craft of writing than I, she simply remained patient and imparted wisdom where it was needed, as any intelligent mentor would. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Laura! I look forward to more quality coaching and dialogue with you soon!”
– Jason Bornstein
If there was one word that could sum up my interactions with Laura Sherman, it would be inspirational. As a reluctant writer, returning to the craft after a long hiatus, Sherman has been more than a colleague, but a mentor and friend, as well. Using her years of experience as a guide, Sherman has always shown herself to be honest, knowledgeable, and above all, a consummate professional. I couldn’t be more grateful to have her expertise in my life. And, I know that when I publish my first novel, I will have Laura Sherman to thank for lending her ear.
– Jean Maskuli, Emmy award-winning author and producer
“Laura Sherman is naturally giving and a very easy-going person to work with. She is always willing to share good, sound advice on everything from the nuts and bolts of the craft to the business side and she is never shy about going a little further than is expected. In an increasingly complicated world for writers, she has the sage perspective of someone who has been there, along with an infectious risk-taking spirit.”
– Erick Mertz, professional writer
I got THREE TIMES my old asking price after being coached (for a very short time) by Laura. I never thought I could make so much money. My old ways are gone forever…thanks to her! I will continue to learn and earn! I recommend Laura Sherman to anyone who wants to better their business and learn from a professional!
– Deb Davis, professional writer
“As a beginning freelance writer, I found myself frequently overwhelmed about how to get my writing and marketing foundation established. During my consultation with Laura, she quickly zeroed in on some key steps I could implement right away. After our discussion, I was inspired to tackle bigger projects with greater confidence. She opened my eyes to possibilities I had not imagined.
– Terri Carr, freelance writer
Laura’s patience, intelligence, and dedication were obvious to me from the get-go. I would not only recommend her as a ghostwriter, but also for help with social networking and advice on self-publishing.
– Barbara, author
As the author of three books, and I believe a talented writer, I’ve long been aware of my glaring weaknesses in the area of marketing. How to generate sales of my books, even the one that won a national award, has been frustrating.
I have learned that hiring others to market those books, at least for me, has been expensive and futile. I have spent tons of money along those lines and received next of nothing in return.
The most valuable information I’ve yet to receive in the area of book marketing came in a free 20-minute phone conversation with a writing coach named Laura Sherman. Not only extremely educated on the topic, Laura seems to be down-to-earth in her teaching style and literally appears to be more than willing to freely share from her storehouse of knowledge.
An avid note taker, the amount of work ahead of me to accomplish my goals to upgrade my marketing skills, as learned through Laura in those 20 minutes, is overwhelming. Still, as a marketing coach, her role is to explain the best steps for me to achieve my intended goal, then leave it up to me to follow through.
