Why, hello there. Good to have you here. I’m Abidemi Sanusi, author and owner/founder of this website.
I’ve had what you may call a portfolio career, ranging from being a human rights worker, to running my own content agency, specialising in the FinTech (financial and technology), and legal sectors. In between, I’ve also managed stints at the UN and the UK Cabinet Office, and written for the UK Guardian newspaper and The Author, amongst other publications.
Publishing pedigree (just in case you were wondering…)
I’ve written books across all genres; from inspirational (writing as Levi Read), to general fiction, to ghostwriting and business writing, with some foreign language translations of my books, thrown in between.
I’ve also been nominated for the prestigious Commonwealth Writers’ Prize (dahling!). I didn’t win, but neither did the Booker Prize and Nobel Prize winners I was competing against, so it’s all good with the universe 😉
About this website
If you’re a fan of my books, Bald Glasses is my author blog. This website is for writers who would like develop their skills and grow their brand.
What’s so great about abidemi.tv?
Glad you asked! For starters, everything you read on this website comes from a place of experience and not from theory. I:
- am a published author (traditional and self-published), so can speak, teach and train from both sides of the fence and from practical experience
- have been a freelancer, so I know what it takes to make it and stay there
- ran my own writing business, a boutique content agency, with clients ranging from Symantec to easyhotel.com, and I employed freelancers, so can advise you on what NOT to do to get those writing projects, and most important, develop your brand and your business
- have written in a range of industries (business writing – B2B and B2C) and book genres (inspirational and general fiction, ghostwriting and more), so can provide authoritative advice and guidance on writing and publishing.
When it comes to improving your writing skills and growing your writing business, you want people who talk from experience, and lived to tell the tale, and that’s what abidemi.tv does.
The tagline for this website is write better, make more. This means that everything you read on this website is aimed at improving your writing skills (whether as an author or a freelancer), first, and then equipping you with the tools to develop your brand and your business, second. Everything goes back to the writing.
To put it another way: the writing is everything, and we’ve got some writing tools to help you write better and make more.
