Transcriptions – Making Your Work, Book, and Family History Real

Writers and business owners… Looking for help with transcriptions, editing, organization, or customer service? Look no more.


Welcome to LuvPets Transcription!

From Vanessa Valentine:

Welcome to LuvPets Transcription!
Hi there! I am a professional transcriptionist with 15+ years experience and I type over 100 words per minute. I have spent most of those years doing medical transcription, but I’ve also transcribed for veterinarians, physical therapists, and writers.

But I am not just limited to transcription! I will type up and/or organize anything you need. Are you a student that attended a lecture and would like to see the chicken scratches turned into something coherent? Are you a senior who would like to verbally record your story and have those memories transcribed for your loved ones? Or are you a busy person who has a big stack of papers you’ve been meaning to “get to” that need organization, perhaps even entered into a spreadsheet that you can easily search (or give your accountant)?

I have also worked as an editor and in online customer service/fulfillment, as well.

I just dearly love creating order out of chaos!

I work from home in beautiful Bellingham, Washington (very close to the Canadian border). I am quite well set up to receive/deliver HIPAA safe transfer of medical dictations (or any other sensitive material) utilizing cloud-based technology or directly through your EMR, and I use NordVPN to guarantee all my data is unable to be breached. For audio transcription, I charge 14 cents per 65-character line.

For all other services (word processing/organization, etc.), I charge $14/hr.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me via email at or by phone at 360-510-3622 and leave a message. Thank you so much for your interest!

You can tell your story…

My brother Max told me about a guy named S. Harry Zade who had to tell stories. He was good, Harry was. If you aren’t following his blog you should be. I checked it out and found that Max had a guest post telling HIS story. Maybe I am a good influence. Huh. Interesting. Click here or go to the link below for all the dirt, I mean Max’s story. you to The Narrative Imperative and the good folks at the Epiphany Cafe for sharing Max’s story.We all have stories but some of us are story tellers.I always see blog posts and articles and Facebook and other “things” and people asking “Why do you write?”

Are Some Humans Born to Bully? Born to Be Victims? Can It Be Changed?

Great article about bullies and writing and life. Click here for: Are Some Humans Born to Bully? Born to Be Victims? Can It Be Changed?.

Another great blog post from Kristen Lamb.

And remember (these are my words,not from the article above), you might not be able to get rid of bullies, but you can teach yourself and your kids how to NOT be bully bait. Stand up and stand proud. And remember bullies are just a bunch of shit heads.

The Best Laid Plans: Of Mice and Men

Clikc here: To Celebrate Banned Book Week: The Best Laid Plans: Of Mice and Men.

An article worth reading from

Good post about one of the most often banned books. I still can’t believe, as I key in the words “banned books” that such a thing can happen. It is just plain stupid that one or two parents at a school can complain at a school and a book is banned. What a bunch of weak kneed saps they are to listen to such idiots. So celebrate and read a banned book today…and click on the link above to read the article (which is better than anything I could have written on the subject).
