I have worked for publishers in various capacities over the years. However, with all the changes that 2020 brought, I suddenly found myself freelancing my editing and design services on Fiverr. Most of my clients are writers who want to self-publish their stories. I help them to perfect their text, advise them on liaising with illustrators, design their book and then guide them through the uploading of their books onto various platforms in order to publish.
In the beginning, it was easy for me to spend many extra hours coaching one client, but now that I have hundreds of clients, it's becoming more and more impossible to give this level of attention to every author.
To tackle this, I have decided to create this resource that will guide new authors through the process of creating a book. Someone to help you make sense of a new landscape that you are making your maiden voyage into.
Through this blog, and a youtube channel that I'm creating, I'm hoping to build a community of helpful creatives and colourful authors.
Glad to have you with us. Leave a comment if you have any specific questions.
I have been in the publishing industry for 20 years and have worked for several publishing houses and international organisations. Several of my children's books have won awards.
