Some Endorsements:

“Clayton Bye is one of the most prolific and talented writers I know. He is an eloquent poet, insightful critic, imaginative novelist, and a self-help expert. The sheer volume of his work makes me dizzy, and he seems comfortable in all genres. From his compelling collection of short stories and essays to fiction winners like “The Sorcerer’s Key” and inspirational works like “How To Get What You Want From Life” and “Getting Clear,” he seems to find more hours in a day than most writers find in a week. He makes you think, touches your heart, and fights the good fight with his pen as his sword. You can number me among his great admirers.”

  • Hired Clayton as a Writer/Editor

“I consider myself very fortunate to have formed links with Clayton Bye. Clayton is an acclaimed writer of 13 books, including fiction and business books. There seems to be no aspect of the writing industry to elude him. As well as a writer, he is a reviewer, editor and publisher, owning Chase Enterprises Publishing. Under this imprint, Clayton edited and published the Writers on the Wrong Side of the Road anthology, which is an adventurous ‘alternative’ collection of short stories. It says a lot about Clayton that he had the courage to break new ground and drive forward this unique project. As if this isn’t impressive enough, Clayton is also an independent business consultant. His talents are wide and varied, he is astute and insightful, knowledgeable and enviably articulate. I am very glad to have made his acquaintance.”

 “Clayton worked for me as a ghostwriter on my first book. My experience working with Clayton was outstanding. His strong writing skills, professionalism and discipline were key to have my book well structured and published on time. I also commend his interpersonal skills and communication that have allowed an excellent working relationship. The book is now a success beyond my expectation and it has helped me assert myself as an authority in the oil and gas industry. I highly recommend Clayton as a ghostwriter.”
