“I originally hired Louise Aveni to do some in depth research and create comprehensive Bibliographies for a couple of books I was producing for print publication. But very quickly I discovered how wide and varied her expertise was, and so charged her with so much more. She not only provided me with the highest caliber of extended personnel to include a publisher, a publicist, but also found the best recording studio and assisted in voice actor talent auditions, that allowed me to fulfill my desire for producing two audiobooks in tandem with the printed projects.
One of her most valuable roles was acting liaison between the vocal actors’ union, SAG/AFTRA, and her tremendous experience in navigating all the necessary ISBNs and Barcodes required for each book/audiobook.
Louise became the “glue” for all in these processes. I am forever grateful for our association and would definitely recommend her services as a “Book Shepherd”. I would engage her again for my next literary project.”

“I wanted to write a book on Pop Culture but didn’t have the wherewithal or writing experience to put my concept together. I was introduced to Louise Aveni through a publisher who sang her praises as a ghostwriter and what she created for me was nothing short of magic! She took my random thoughts and trivia and created not one, but two books! The most amazing thing was how she was able to write them in “my voice”. I enjoyed working with her tremendously and how she kept true to my vision. Thank you, Ms. Louise!” - John C. - Pawtucket, RI
“Louise Aveni wrote a very special book for me about what it’s like raising my autistic son and my views on what was truly important in life. I didn’t want it to be a heavy subject so I provided her with audio tapes sharing events and stories that she brilliantly translated into heartfelt chapters with tons of humor, keeping it light as I had asked her to do. One of the things I valued the most, was her allowing me to keep complete control of this book and followed through with all changes and suggestions I asked for. I highly recommend Louise Aveni as a ghostwriter.” Reggie G. – Hartford, CT
“I attended a speaking engagement where Louise Aveni was a Keynote speaker. I was so impressed with her background and experience in the literary world that I decided to tackle writing a book that I’d put on hold for over a decade. I contacted Louise for help and was delighted to have her input. I turned to her for everything from editing, cover design suggestions, who should I publish with and how to market my book. She didn’t disappoint! Thank you, Louise!” - Sharon E.-Sarasota, Fl

“I enrolled in one of Louise Aveni’s creative writing classes and found her to be extremely knowledgeable as she guided the class through all the nuances of writing. She brought a lot of humor into the classroom and provided an interactive process which kept everyone engaged. When my book is finished, I will definitely turn to her for guidance for editing, publishing and promotion. I highly recommend Louise for all your literary projects!” -

"I met Louise Aveni several years ago when I attended a writing class she was teaching. It was at a time when I was considering whether or not to write and publish a very personal journal about loss and renewal. Louise was a guiding angel – always providing practical insight, while still encouraging me to move ahead with my book.
I trust Louise’s intuitive judgment, and the skills she brought to this fledgling writer. Yes, she gently pushed me off my perch so that my words and art could come to life and take flight. She understands how to keep the author’s voice and intent in tack, all the while guiding them through the process from writing to publication." -
