As a Ghostwriter, it is vital to share my work with you. If I am the right ghostwriter to amplify your story to impact your audience, my writing will connect with you.
My focus is on the story.
I take your experience (whether it was traumatic, beautiful, or you think nothing special) and connect it to the heart of your audience.
I specialize in memoirs, self-help, general nonfiction, and spiritual.
As an editor, my job is to help your work to read smoothly without interruptions from mistakes.
My focus is on the message and how well it is portrayed.
I desire that your words should flow and mistakes eliminated to the best of my abilities.
Check out some of the work below.
I'm Jonily Zupancic. I have been trying to write my book for about five years—yes, that's right—I said five years. Each time I would start, I would get stuck and not know how to write.
Now, as far as speaking goes—not to fear— I have all the words I need to teach. That is how I make my living; however, I need that extra boost to figure out how to make the book a reality.
April was that boost! She captured the words through the interviews, meetings, and my notes and then produced a book that captured what had escaped me for a half-decade.
Check out the sample of my book Making Mathineers to see how she helped pull the stories that I had deep down to help the world understand the power of math.
Working with April was a calming and reassuring experience, as this was my first book. I personally did all I could to detail my own process through fear and excuses, but April was there with me step by step to ensure that I stuck with the process.
From the initial collaboration in developing the outline to the final formatting in April, I completed this with April. Her legitimate fascination with my work helped her connect with my purpose, helping me develop the stories and give them greater depth.
I have about three more books that I am working through right now, and I will be working April again on them to get them written and published.
I am an award-winning author of When in Doubt Delite It and Get Noticed Get Hired. When I started on my third book Culture Secrets I knew I needed support to funnel out all the information I had collected for this book.
It was daunting trying to figure out how to put everything together in a manner that flowed and would make the most logical sense for readers to follow.
April helped me build an outline that told my story in a compelling and easy-to-follow manner. She helped me find the clarity of the message and helped me identify areas that needed building out more.
She was easy to work with and made the process so easy, and now I have my third completed book. I would recommend her writing coaching anytime!
I'm Stacy Lucas. Writing my book was a daunting task for me. I didn’t know where to begin or how to transfer my thoughts into a book.
April listened with an open heart and in almost no time my story was coming to life. The best part was April not only encouraged me along the way but she also stepped into the trenches right along with me until the final period was put on paper.
If you have a story to tell but are struggling to write it, do not give up, April will transfer your thoughts into words for all to read.
To say it was a joy to work with April would be an understatement. With utmost professionalism, she connects with her clients' stories.
Her outstanding insight helped me bring my story into the light the way my soul yearned to tell it. That alone was amazing, but there's more.
As an editor, she has a keen ability to catch the missing pieces and inconsistencies that I didn't see until she pointed them out. She helped me develop the story further by filling in the gaps and rearranging it for clarity and depth. More than an editor, April is a soul-writer.
To say I was stuck would be an understatement. I started my writing journey in 2013, more than seven years ago. I knew that I had a story; I just could not bring the word or the confidence up to get it really started.
A dear friend recommended April to me. Following our introduction, I knew that she had what I was missing: the confidence and the accountability to complete the book that had been lingering inside for far too long.
I know how to help you get out of the financial crisis, and now I have the book to help you as well. My book, Debt Free Dreams, is now ready for you to enjoy!

Collaboration is where inspiration, better ideas, and better work happens—if you partner with the right collaborator. April Tribe Giauque is an excellent collaborator.
Upon hearing April’s recording of her own book, I knew she was a great storyteller. When she offered to help future authors who needed it, I took her up on the offer immediately. It didn’t take long to be convinced April was the person I needed to work with to get my book, “Pivot Point, What if You Found The Secret to Everything?”, ready to publish.
As a developmental editor, April helped me keep everything cohesive. As an editor, she made sound suggestions, while carefully allowing me to maintain my own voice. April is gifted, dedicated, and always the Beacon of Light she is called to be. I am honored to not only call her a colleague but now, a friend.

To say it is a joy to work with April would be correct!
I am a Joy-Fanatic. April helped me to write my book called Discover Your Joy. We are finished, and I can't believe the joy this process has brought me.
April has helped me capture the daily splashes of inspiration for living an abundant life of happiness, blessings, and inner peace because this is what I bring to the world with my book.
April has helped me with the book, coaching and speaking, I can now help women find their joy no matter the circumstances. Need Joy? Start here!
My name is Angela Witczak. I spent two years writing my book when I realized that I needed something more than the words in my head. That's where April comes in! I called April out of pure desperation and fear that my book was total garbage. She was able to calm my fears and help me organize my thoughts into coherent sentences.
She was there, every single time I sent her something and said, "I think this is crap, can you help?" and she assured me it wasn't! She reorganized my words, thoughts and paragraphs into a beautiful masterpiece I am truly proud of.
I am sure that I would still be fumbling around with the words in my head if I wouldn't have called April to ask for help. She really has been a light in the darkness when it came to finishing my book!
My name is Melissa Hammerling. My book is called "The Secrets Behind Closed Doors." I spent three years writing my book when I realized that I needed supports. I became ill and needed to know how to get my words out there before it was too late.
That's when I saw April talking to a friend of mine on a DV Facebook site, and I thought, Why not?
I knew my story was powerful, but I needed shape and direction. I needed a ghostwriter. I was also in much pain when I first wrote it. It was very victim-ish, so I knew that I needed to have more than I did.
April helped me organize my thoughts into coherent sentences, paragraphs and soon, we had a structured 14 chapter story with farewells, changed names, a theme throughout, and hope to give to anyone who has had a life of abuse as I have.
My book is my lasting legacy. My book needed to tell the story of evil and stop abuse for young women everywhere. I needed my children to know that I love them and that this legacy is theirs.
I hope one day that the women who read it will know that all of it is true and that the pain is accurate, the forgiveness requests run deep, and that no matter what, keep F$%King Going!
April helped me to do that; I know she can for you.
My name is Iuvina Basile. My book is called Abba Little's Princess. I knew I needed to write my book when I realized that I needed support.
The past few years have been such a struggle I have literally lost all clarity, purpose, and direction of what I am supposed to be doing in every area of my life. I gave in to overwhelmedness and even welcomed depression and its symptoms for a few days.
I have been battling God yet again (when will I learn?), and I was left exhausted.
Today is a brand new day and after more praying on my Knees and a word God sent in the way of one of my other sisters in Christ, I am here doing what I should have been doing all along—writing my book with April's help!
April helped me organize my thoughts into coherent sentences, paragraphs and soon, we had a structured book.
Thank you for being such a light in a dark world.
My name is Jeff Ellner. My book is called Second Chances. I have been writing this book for over 50 years. I started in 1967. I have over two personal libraries full of books that I have used in the research for my book. All that research meant I had mountains of handwritten notes to comb through and organize for the book.
As I plunged in for an up-teenth time, I realized that I needed support. I've started the process well over ten times, and each time life would happen, and I would be delayed again. Finally, I knew that 2022 was the year to get the book written.
I found April through my daughter Marci. We used Google drive to connect all of my notes and thoughts. I also mailed her copies of my legal pad notes and articles for her to go through.
Using facetime meetings and extended 2-3 hour conversations going over the book section by section, chapter by chapter, April helped me organize my thoughts into coherent sentences, paragraphs, and chapters. After a few months of this process, we had a structured book, as well as a friendship
Now, after a fifty-year process, I have my book, Second Chances: The U.S. Constitution. Thank you, April Giauque—Thank you!
When Angela Witczak called me on an early spring day, she had an offer for me that I couldn’t refuse. She and her friend Laura Hulleman wanted to write a joint venture anthology with a collection of twelve authors for the book My Walk My Way.
Angela said that she wanted a book that was cohesive and yet showed their personalities. I knew I needed to give all authors developmental writing coaching and line and copy editing per story to help all twelve authors have the book they were dreaming of.
Angela and Laura said, “the developmental and line editing process was the outside voice of reason they needed to help draw the writing out of their authors.”
I was honored to interview and coach all twelve authors, and now many of them have gone on to write more books and have had the honor of being interviewed on the Beacon of Light Podcast.
Chase Godfrey and Micah Lancaster
I'm Chase Godfrey and this is my dad, Dexter Godfrey. This is my Trainer Micah Lancaster. We hired April to help us pull our Basketball book together and man, it was teamwork!
Our book is called "Raising a Baller: The Top 12 Secrets from an NBA Trainer Every Parent Needs to Know for Developing an Elite Youth Basketball Player."
We needed direction and a great plan for the book, and wham! We got it with April. We are stoked about our book and we want to tell you that it has come together and now y'all out there get to see the powerhouse book that this is!
I tried to write my book for three years. I would start and stop over and over again. I had the stories, but then the trauma and pain would surface and shut it all down.
I could speak from the stage and share the story with the world, but putting it in ink, was such a different experience.
I found April through facebook and reached out to her.
After speaking to her for 10-minutes, I hired her as my Ghostwriter!
I must share my story to help heal millions of women stuck in abuse so that they can be a victory over their lives. They are in the Master's hands as He weaves the tapestry of their lives.
