Overview

I've been an author, editor, and graphic designer since 1987 and have worked with more than a dozen publishers, including the largest--Penguin Random House. I've had 18 books published so far--most of which have been reprinted in different editions. I also launched my own small publishing company (Fern Canyon Press) in 1996.

I've done everything from book layouts to designing covers, advertisements, and catalogs. I format books for print and convert them to ebooks. I'm also a photographer and I've built several websites from scratch,...

Service Description

If what you require is related to publishing, I should be able to do it.

Most of what I'm doing at the moment is helping people format their books for print or print-on-demand, or converting their books into ebooks.

I also provide advice and warn people what to watch out for. It's easy to make mistakes in this industry. Things are complicated and I can help clear the way. I won't BS you. I won't try to sell you something you don't need. I know shortcuts and often I end up saving money for my clients.

With me you'll get personal service, and not someone who just plugs your hard work into a standard template as fast as possible. I focus on every detail to make sure it's done right.

Having to compete against workers from Singapore and India, I probably won't be the least expensive, but my work is professional and of the highest quality.
