Profile

Do you care how well you write, and want others to care as well?

FTF Author Support can assist at any stage of the process, from putting together your first proposal to mapping out a comprehensive research agenda. We tackle dissertations, books, articles, blog posts: any medium involving prose. We'll ferret out any inaccuracies, discrepancies, and gaps in logic and continuity, and make your words sing like never before. As instructions for manuscript preparation and submission grow more (never less), exacting, we’ll take over some or all of what’s required. We’ll even create customized publicity and social media packages to maximize your writing investment.

The "we" at FTF is Sue Easun. "I am a former in-house acquisitions editor, who knows her way around the industry: what publishers are looking for in a proposal, what they’ll accept as a final draft, whether self-publishing is the way to go, if you'd be better off writing a series of blog posts instead. I am a former librarian, who understands that the process doesn’t end with buyers but with readers; it's as important for an author to anticipate what a reader is looking for and how best you can address that need, as it is to ensure you've said what you need to say. And I am a former University of Toronto faculty member, who has never lost her love for tackling a new subject area."

The result is an editor with an analytical bent and a penchant for a neat turn of phrase. So give us a call! It will cost you a few moments of time, but may gain you an unexpected advantage. For more about Sue, check out her LInkedIn and Google+ profiles.
