just hoping I could get a ballpark idea of cost for the final stages of prepping my manuscript and cover PSD for Lightning Source publication. Just to give you the key points:

Andrea is just a consumate professional, experienced and knowledgeable about the industry and constantly moving things along in an efficient, friendly and helpful way, keeping all the plates spinning and goalposts clear, task by task.
Her attention to detail and drive to deliver the best product in every respect really made me feel from day one that my novel was in good hands, and the end result was made all the better through her suggestions and broad range of options to narrow in on the best overall combination of design, fonts, formatting etc. She was responsive to my vague descriptions of things I wanted to see and able to translate those loose ideas into a solid, professional looking end result.

If you're looking for a freelancer who will deliver the same level of quality, sophistication, and understanding of the marketplace that you would be privy to when publishing through a bigger company, you'd be hard pressed to find a better fit than Andrea.”
