Experienced, Qualified, Affordable
I offer a variety of author services, but the most important one I offer is my experience. I understand your dilemmas on all fronts because I’m in the trenches with you. I partner with my clients. I play devil’s advocate, brainstorm, and act as a sounding board. I know you have a limited budget, and I work to prioritize and spread tasks out so get the services you need, but in a way that doesn’t impact your bottom line. I’m good at what I do, and I’m happy to provide references to back up that statement.

Client provides all content for the newsletter, including text, images, accurate links. I do not proof content, but if I see a typo, I correct it or point it out.
Client provides general content. I provide custom subject lines, headings, images, and write additional content where requested or needed with author approval. Also monitoring and strategies for mailing list.
My monthly clients receive customized graphics for special promotions, new releases, and other events to make your books standout.
I also do graphics as special projects. Check out my portfolio.
I create affordable, professional websites for authors, using the theme builder Divi by Elegant Themes. The theme is a lifetime license with all updates. I work with you to give you a website that matches your brand.
Upon completion of the website, I give you instructions on how to add pages, update plugins and other information to ensure you can perform basic maintenance yourself if you don’t wish to pay for my services in that area.
Simple websites (such as this one) run approximately $400-500. They includes pages for Home, Main Bookshelf, About Me, Contact (contact form), and up to three individual books pages with a template you can copy and add other books.
Deluxe websites include pop-up excerpts, connected series pop-ups, and other front-end and backend enhancements to the website.
VA Services & Skills Set
Not sure what your author brand is? I can help you determine what it is, then work with you to encompass the brand in all your marketing.
Social Media Management
Automation, whether a basic plan or personalized, allows you to reduce your time on Facebook.
Mailing List Specialist
Mailing lists come in all sizes. The best ones are lean, solid opens and have an excellent email reputation.
I’ve been doing marketing newsletters my entire career. Done correctly, they can be entertaining, connect your closely to your readers, and serve as a direct link without the road blocks social media throws in your path. The best newsletter is one that reads like a personal letter to your reader.
Review Team Management
If you use MailerLite (or other service with branch capability), I can put your review team on a special campaign that distributes the ARC, requires them to submit their links to a form, and reminds them if they haven’t reviewed yet, ALL without me having to waste billable hours chasing down reviewers.
I possess strong WordPress skills, and I built this website, as well as my author website, using modified and original Divi Themes. I do general maintenance for a number of clients, as well as daily monitoring the security of client sites. I also know CPanel options, and limited management of SQL databases (where your WordPress pages are stored)
If I’ve not listed the service you’re looking for, ask me. My skills are extensive. I also practice the Miracle on 34th Street principle. If I can’t do it, I’ll direct you to someone who can.
