Hi, I'm The Goth Writer. I'm a remote, freelance writer based in, and working from, Newark, NJ. I'm located conveniently close to New York City, my former home. My name is Layla Rose, that's my nom de plume that I use for all of my non-fiction and poetry writing. My Sci-Fi, Fantasy, & Supernatural Thriller will be written under the name T.L. Collins. Highlighted in lime green, please click the link for my new blog. It will open in a new window/tab. Then be sure and get in touch soon, so that we can get started on your next project.

The Goth Writer Blog

As you may know, my publicity project wrapped up recently and here's the testimonial that the author wrote for me:

"Layla Rose was an integral part of promoting my debut novel. Her tasks
involved e-mailing, calling and otherwise contacting hundreds upon
hundreds of libraries, bookstores, book clubs, reviewers and similar
groups, and with responding to replies and following-up
as required. She was also required to perform in-depth research on
traditional media, and to administer a large database...

...I found Layla immediately took to the role, asked relevant questions and displayed a remarkably strong work ethic, as was shown by the massive number of organizations contacted. She documented all of her work thoroughly and effectively - the sizable database that was developed as part of this project is an unexpected but much valued asset. She also showed a strong degree of initiative, able to understand my overall goals and find creative ways of helping to achieve them - often finding valuable resources that I had overlooked, or simply not considered."

I am good at what I do, you can be assured. I love doing virtual assistant, marketing, and publicity type work. I also love writing, reading, and researching.
