The London Ghostwriting Company Team Testimonials

“My thanks to Simon Petherick who made it readable.” Joe Keeton on The Power Of The Mind

“It’s a heartrending account of innocence brutally snatched from a child. This book does not pull its punches as to the nonchalant evil of the perpetrators of this sickening trade in human flesh.” K. A. Hitchins on Lydia’s Song

“Working with Simon has been and continues to be a real pleasure.” Steven Machat on Gods, Gangsters and Honour

“Jacqueline was wonderful to work with. She made all meetings very comfortable and was so easy to talk with. She taught me so much in such a short space of time, simplifying things to make them appear so easy when, of course, they are not! She adds to your ideas brilliantly and in return gives ideas which you, yourself can add to. I honestly didn’t think i had it in me to write what I have, yet with Jacqueline’s inspiration, teaching and advice, she has showed me that I did. I can’t thank her enough and hope to work with her many more times in the future!” Derek Moore. Ghostwriting, Children’s Book.

“I have been truly impressed with Sue’s work. She has brought my book to life, given me excellent advice and has gone the extra mile for me. I wouldn’t hesitate to use her again!” MA. Ghostwriting, Memoir

“I was in tears by the time I’d finished this novel… A deeply moving story … Neither thriller, nor crime fiction, nor mystery, yet containing elements of each of these that hooked me in.” Mark Anderson Smith on Lydia’s Song.

“Simon’s work on the transcripts enabled us to produce a commercial and very popular history of World War Two.” Tamsin Griffiths on The War In Plymouth

“Thank you! I’ve got the champagne on ice and looking forward to opening it. I’m really thankful and grateful for what you’ve done. I think you write beautifully; you’ve got such a gift. [The book] is really wonderful and I don’t know how you do it.” DL. Ghostwriting, Memoir

“As editor and writer on the PAWA magazine, Yang-May wrote up lively and interesting articles from email interviews with supporters of our charity. She has a knack for structuring people’s quickly written replies to her questions into fluid and readable stores. In particular, it was great to have her writing skills at the ready when some of us did a fundraising trek along the Great Wall of China. She sent us email questions that we could reply to on our smartphones in the evenings after our long days walking – and then transformed our stream of consciousness replies into great stories, which she then posted on the blog within a day. It was like sending up to the minute well-written despatches from our adventure. She made the whole process very easy and enjoyable!” Zehan Albakri, Chair, Pan Asian Women’s Association

“I’ve read  it all through multiple times now and just love it. Please send on my thanks to the whole team for great work and producing it so efficiently surpassing my expectations.” Annabel Cruddas. Ghostwriting, Biography

“Professional, reliable, efficient, ready to jump onto the given task right away. Good flavor in writing scene descriptions. Respectful of the author’s work. Definitely recommended.” Francesco Accattatis. Script Editing, Short Film

“When I hired Luke 6 months ago I didn’t fully appreciate how much beyond the words he’d bring to the process. Working with him on my first book ‘Hippo – The Human Focused Digital Book’ has been a real joy. Not only has he diligently guided me through the process of actually writing a book, he showed huge spirit throwing himself head first into my industry and topic. It’s not an easy task getting under the skin of a complex industry in a short space of time and Luke has done just that. He’s captured my tone of voice and went from being the ghostwriter I wanted to co-author very quickly. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone thinking about taking the leap into writing. He’s honest, through, thoughtful and tough when it needs to be tough.” Trainor, P. Ghostwriting, Non-Fiction Book

“Sue did a very good job of copy-editing and proofreading the manuscript. She was detailed and thorough in her approach. In addition, she made some very useful suggestions on other ways I could improve the material and she was prompt in sending back the corrected work.” AP. Proofreading, Children’s Non-Fiction

“This powerful novel gives a challengingly painful insight into the horrific truths of child sex-trafficking  in Cambodia,” Caroline (Baroness) Cox on Lydia’s Song.

“Luke took my feature length screenplay and elevated it to another level. After that, the script was optioned by an American film company. He also edited a lot of the lyrics to my band’s songs, turning them from raw material to something that more people can relate to. His professionalism can only be compared to his kindness.” Mouroukis, C. Ghostwriting, Screenplay

“I asked Sue to do a full editing job on the first draft. I am absolutely delighted with the suggestions she made and the improvements they achieved. Sue was a delight to work with. I have no hesitation in recommending her for her excellent work and easy manner.” DS-B. Copy Editing, Fiction

“Luke Shipman did an excellent job on my autobiography Johnny Cigarini: Confessions of a King’s Road Cowboy. He cut out a lot of superfluous material, and added a lot of good stuff. The best thing was, at no point does the book feel that it wasn’t written by me.” Cigarini, J. Ghostwriting, Memoirs

“Luke has exceeded my expectation. We very quickly arrived at a shared understanding of the objective, key tasks and timescales and I was astonished by the depth of knowledge around our topic area Luke built up in a short space of time. Not only was his task completed before the deadline, but the quality of his work was outstanding. Luke is a very nice person, listens well and is easy to communicate with. I will definitely hire Luke again for future projects. Thank you so much Luke!” Levy, A. Co-writing of TV Screenplay, Bioepic.

“I’m good at having ideas but terrible at putting those ideas onto the page. Through regular conversations and informal meetings TLGWC has helped me to create, and actually enhance, my original story. They provide the full package!” Jeanes, T. Story Consultant, Fiction.

“I originally approached Luke for guidance with a ghostwriting job I had undertaken and he generously supported me with advice on processes, pricing and more. As a fellow copywriter, I found him easy to talk to and professional in his approach. We have subsequently collaborated on a project of his and he was able to provide further expertise to allow me to assist him. I have enjoyed learning from Luke and can vouch for his project management skills and authoring expertise. He’s also encouraging, energetic and fun to work with.” S.K.R.

“Yang-May is a person of extraordinary intelligence, integrity and enthusiasm. She is a consummate professional, fully dedicated to anything she undertakes. Capable of holding the big picture and small details simultaneously, she is a person of great insight. She is also trustworthy and discrete. Yang-May is one of the first people I consult if I ever find myself in a bind. She has a unique and invaluable combination of logic, unflappable competence, resourcefulness, generosity of spirit and positivity.” Lucy S, Author
