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


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


Manuscript Critique/Beta-reading

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

Podcasts/Writing Classes

  • 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.
  • Jordan Rosenfeld’s Writing Classes

Rate Drop!

Back to school background with school supplies.View from above. Flat layThe Dow is not the only thing that’s dropping…

I wanted to make sure my rates were in line with other editing services out there and so, starting today, I decided to lower copyediting rates across the board to a very affordable .006 per word as we head into the fall. Check out my Rates page for more details.

Note: Proofreading rates stay the same. And listed flat rates for smaller editing jobs stay the same as well.

I also have a new service that combines developmental editing and copyediting of your manuscript… that’s .008 per word.

I look forward to helping you with your editing/proofreading needs!
