Geek-Free Speak For Author Publishing and Promotion

⇨ Finished NaNoWriMo and unsure how to get your novel published?
⇨ Don't want to pay a vanity publisher?
⇨ Want to self-publish but are stuck on the lingo?
⇨ Need help with making your work look great for print?
⇨ Self-published and need ideas on raising your visibility?
⇨ Want a website but don't have a clue what to put on it or how to start?

I can help!

My name's Emma and I'm passionate about what I do. I'm an author, web developer and run two independent publishing imprints, dealing with all logistical aspects.

With experience in formatting and managing both print and digital books, for myself, my clients and for two publishing imprints, I know how the self-publishing system works.

In the past eighteen months, I've seen well over a million words go to print or digital distribution, with platforms such KDP, Draft2Digital, Smashwords, CreateSpace and Ingram Spark. Books I've managed or helped format appear on Kindle, Apple iBooks, Barnes & Noble, amongst others. My experience with print on demand (CreateSpace, Ingram Spark) means I know how to make your print books look great, and trust me, there's no better feeling than seeing all your hard work in print!

I know every step of the self-publishing system, from setting up accounts, formatting your work to look great, selecting keywords and categories to maximise visibility, and zero to low-cost promotional opportunities.

I'm also a web geek with over two decades' experience in web development. I've written hundreds of thousands of lines of code since 1995 and know how to create a secure, mobile-friendly website that works well in the search engines and most importantly, looks and works fantastically for your website's visitors.

So, if you're struggling to make sense of Kindle Direct Publishing, eBook formatting for Smashwords or simply cannot face CreateSpace, or need a great website, book your free 15-minute clarity call.

We'll work out what you need help with and discover whether we're a good fit. No obligation, no BS and no pushy sales tactics (bleurgh!)
