Research Fanatic For Hire! The one thing I love just as much as writing - maybe more - is spending time digging for unique and insightful resources.
I've spent years successfully scouring Southern California libraries, university archives, and state, county and local halls of records for important materials for my own projects as well as for other writers.
My clients include published authors from all around the country who require materials located here in Los Angeles to complete their books and magazine articles. Hiring me to do the detective work saves them travel time and expense.
My research expertise and understanding of what a writer needs to successfully complete a project has resulted in many repeat customers who tell me that they appreciate my thorough, reliable investigative work and timely delivery of information.
Here are just a few of the institutions that I know like the back of my hand where I can conduct research for you -- all rates are negotiated depending on your project budget:
Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences Herrick Library
Warner Bros. Archives at USC
UCLA Special Collections
Los Angeles Public Library
Los Angeles Area Community Libraries & Special Collections
Los Angeles County Hall of Records & Recorders Archives
I also offer custom Photo Scanning Services for authors who are required to deliver images with their manuscript but don't have the time and/or equipment to deliver both on deadline; or who don't want to the pay high rates that others charge.
Do you have a project you need assistance with? Contact me with the details!
