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.


  • 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.

Happy National Grammar Day!

3cc08655-081f-4fa1-b3b1-2501ee701ac9_NGD.crop_333x250_47,0.previewMarch 4 is National Grammar Day in the U.S.  To celebrate, in the midst of this endless winter, I’m offering a sweet, limited-time deal for new clients: Take 30 percent off my regular editing rates! This applies to short jobs as well as long ones, but does not apply to proofreading. New clients only, please.

So, check my Rates page and contact me for a quote. I’ve also updated my Testimonials page as well.
