Let's Write Your life. Let's Change the

Cortney’s ability to set expectations, deliver your story in your voice, and provide advice is just what I needed. I completed my project and launched. Hit #1 New Release in small business entrepreneurial management on Amazon. Cortney was the right choice!

—Client "M," ghostwriting client (Leadership Book)

Cortney was extremely responsive, encouraging, and helpful during the final formatting process. She put me at ease during the process because she had everything under control. Her services were affordable and exceeded my expectations.

—Author Liesl Hays, formatting client (Non-Fiction)

 

WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING...

 

Cortney was deliberate about capturing my unique voice. She took on my story as if it were her own. Her compassion and dedication were accentuated by her knowledge of grammar and editing. Within one year of our start date, my completed manuscript was in the hands of a publisher. The results I had with Cortney as my ghostwriter are undeniable, and without reservation, I highly recommend vocem, LLC for ghostwriting and/or editing.

But Your Mother Loves You: How to Overcome the Cycle of Toxic Love & Live Your Life Without Shame

Your edits are amazing. I'm reading this over now, and the story is much tighter. Thank you so much!

—Author Gregory Peterson, editing client (Fiction)

Awesome work, Cortney! Looking forward to seeing this in print. We really appreciate all of your hard work to make this happen.  I am so glad that we did this!

—Client "S," ghostwriting client (Family Memoir)

 

The journey with Cortney is more than words transferring to paper, it was an experience in empowerment. Her hands-on approach makes you feel like more than just a client. She is personable, professional, and left no doubt that she was the perfect match for my vision. Her level of knowledge and expertise in ghostwriting and editing is clear in the ease in with which I saw my own book get accepted for publishing and even after going to print, all due to her diligence. I would not hesitate to recommend her or work with her again!!

—Client "L," ghostwriting client (A True Story/Personal Memoir)

A Message from the Owner:

"Though I've always loved books, I wasn't always passionate about storytelling, particularly when it was my own. I used to be a content and private introvert. As we all know, life happens. Life cracks happen. Those cracks changed me. I became impressed by the influence stories have on people and the decisions they make. Today, I love engaging with my clients, diving headfirst into the research, investigation, and production of stories I feel are critical for others to hear. I am a curious and proactive writer and editor, interested in preserving the voice of the person whose story I am helping to write. Hence, the name vocem. It's Latin for "voice." So I ask, "Are you ready to write out the story that changed you in the hopes of changing others?"


Core Values:

Collaboration | Relevancy | Meaningful Work

SPEAKING

Cortney is also an author and faith-based speaker on various topics, ranging from marriage to teen issues. If you want to learn more about this, please use the contact page to send an inquiry email.
