Resources

Following are some resources that have been helpful to me as an independent author. Enjoy!

In no particular order:

Promote Your Book

Publishing Platforms

Cover Art

Layout/Design

  • WriteIntoPrint (offers what looks like a decent ebook formatting service, plus other features)

Reviewers

Manuscript Critique/Beta-reading

  • I personally tried out Cat Skinner at yourbetareader.com and was pleased with the result.

Podcasts

  • The Self-Publishing Roundtable (SPRT)(They also organize amazing cross-promotions!) UPDATE: Sadly, these guys have closed up shop. Anyone want to recommend another good podcast? I’ll post it here.

Too Darned Hot :) New 10% Off Deal All Summer Starts Now!

We’ve had VERY unusual weather for the Bay Area this week — it was 97 degrees in San Francisco yesterday, and a similar temperature today. I’m wishing I was at the seaside with a bucket and spade!

My spring sale was good. A new client called B.W. McKay had me copyedit two of his long books. He writes African American fiction, concentrating on young black male “professional” protagonists who are outwardly successful but inwardly stressed, taking the reader back to their tough adolescences to see the roots of their issues. I really liked both of his novels and have put the link to his novel Digging Deep Within on my Indie Author Showcase page.

To encourage business in these sultry summer months, I’m offering a 10 percent discount across the board on both copyediting and proofreading, whether you are a new client or not, starting now. Just mention the summer sale when you query me! Ends August 31, 2019.
