Service Description

ABOUT ME:
-My degree is in journalism. I am a full-time freelance writer, editor, eBook and book designer based in Georgia in the US. I assist my clients, as needed, with the entire "self-publishing" procedure. I require excellence in myself in all of my endeavors, and I often go beyond the specified requirements of the clients that I work with to assure that they are getting the very best that their product can be. I have mastered the skills required to publish on Createspace, Kindle, Ingram Spark and Smashwords.

-I am passionate about the creation of well-designed, well-edited ebooks and printed books. I am aware that the "look" and "feel" of the publication sells it as much as does the content. I very much enjoy creating appealing book covers for the books that I format and design.

Thank you very much for your consideration. Should we accept each other as Provider/Client, your goals will be my goals. After we both have a clear understanding of the results that you envision for your project, your satisfaction with my completed version of your product is guaranteed.
