- Helping Authors Self-Publish
- Ever dreamed of publishing your own book? Need to produce one in-house? I specialize in assisting authors and companies alike produce and publish their dream publications under a wide range of conditions, specs, budgets, and deadlines. For more information on working with editors, self-publishing, and using my services, click here.
Are you starting a business and need a logo, brochure, and other marketing materials? Are you self-publishing a book and frustrated by the impersonality of companies who claim full-service editing and design according to their staid templates? Do you need to update an in-house training manual, or does your company produce technical documentation? Not sure what you need for your project?
With my friendly, relaxed, common-sense manner, I can help you clarify your goals and figure out solutions based on your needs and visions, with personalized attention and unparalleled service. My diverse experience in editing, writing, design, art direction, graphics acquisition, permissions, indexing, and prepress means that we examine your project as a unified whole, rather than overfocusing on a single aspect. And my expertise in both editing and design will give your publication a one-of-a-kind look, feel, and quality that will last for years to come.
Perhaps you have a publication project but aren't sure what resources are available in terms of graphics and printing. Maybe it has been edited before but you think it might need another look. Or perhaps you require different types of services but don't have time to shop around. I can help you determine your needs and find efficient, cost-effective solutions.
