I have operated, promoted, edited, and funded Leaf Garden Press for several years. We've published twelve issues of a literature and arts journal and a few collections of poetry. All LGP publications were designed and edited by a small volunteer staff and myself. Likewise, I help other small presses with their book designs and publication through Kindle Direct Publishing, Smashwords, Lulu, and CreateSpace.

I can provide writing, editing, and formatting/publishing services including bringing your book from idea to finished product, finding cover design, placing your product in common online markets, and making your product available in both e-book and print formats.
Publishing and formatting services:
My specialty is formatting for Kindle Direct Publishing and Smashwords.
With vast knowledge of Kindle devices, I am able to produce content in several methods, either as Word documents or Mobi files. I am also proficient with EPUB formats.Kindle Direct Publishing will put your ebook on Amazon (for all the countries they sell to).
Smashwords will distribute your book to Apple (iBooks), Barnes and Noble (Nook), Kobo, Sony, and many other retailers. This keeps the process simpler than trying to submit the book to each retailer individually.
My suggestion for publishing an ebook is always going to be the same. If you want the best compatibility and the most retailers, then format the book for Smashwords and adjust that formatting for Kindle. This will create a book that is compatible with older generations of a Kindle device, which are still heavily in use today. This is also an easy way to save on costs. If you're more worried about fancy formatting, I can help there as well by formatting the Kindle book using HTML coding and taking advantage of KF8 formatting. Just keep in mind that this limits the compatibility.
I always offer to help with the submissions process!...
