Waltham, MA (PRWEB) January 8, 2007
FLR Communications (http://www.flrcommunications.blogspot.com), which provides creative communications solutions from its offices in Waltham, Mass., has formed a partnership with award-winning author, editor and publisher Joan Schweighardt. Starting this month, Schweighardt is available to edit and/or ghostwrite full-length fiction and nonfiction manuscripts, and is also available for book/manuscript consulting services and author PR campaigns.
Schweighardt, who lives in Albuquerque, N.M., is the author of four novels: "Island," "Homebodies," "Virtual Silence" (all published by the Permanent Press) and "Gudrun's Tapestry" (published by Beagle Bay Books). "Gudrun's Tapestry" was the recipient of second-place "book of the year" awards from both ForeWord Magazine and Independent Publisher. It releases in Italy on February 11, 2007.
In addition to her own work, Schweighardt has published 14 titles for other writers through her own company, GreyCore Press. Several of GreyCore's titles have garnered major awards and accolades, including "A Month of Sundays: Searching for the Spirit and My Sister" (by Julie Mars), which was a Barnes & Noble "Discover Great New Writers" selection and a Quills Award nominee; "When I Wished I was Alone" (by Dave Cutler), which was one of Borders' top six "Read to Me" titles for 2003; and "The Basket Maker" (by Kate Niles), which was the recipient of the ForeWord Magazine Editor's Choice Book of the Year award.
All of the authors published by GreyCore have enjoyed radio, TV and print interviews and reviews. Collectively, Joan's authors have appeared on or been featured in numerous media including CNN Headline News, CNN with Paula Zahn, Fox's The Best Damn Sports Show Period, People Magazine, Muscle Media Magazine, Writer's Digest, Writer's Journal, Pages, Popular Mechanics, Magical Blend, Playgirl, USA Today, the Los Angeles Times, as well as regional TV, radio and print outlets across the country.
Writers who were not published by GreyCore Press but whose publishers hired Schweighardt to work with them include Lisa Phillips, author of "Public Radio: Behind the Voices" and Damian McNicholl, author of "A Son Called Gabriel." A Google of these titles or a visit to the authors' Web sites (http://www.publicradiobehindthevoices.com and http://www.soncalledgabriel.com) confirms the results of the PR campaigns Joan created and implemented for each of them.
"FLR is thrilled to have Joan on board," said Faye Rapoport DesPres, owner, writer and editor at FLR Communications, which serves clients nationally. "She brings a high level of professionalism and a strong track record of success to our slate of creative communications services."
