Today I spotlight some peeps who have their own book-related business.
Keep them in mind the next time you need an editor, some graphics, a blog tour
or a virtual assistant.
Bea provides copy editing and proofreading for romance, mystery, urban fantasy, and infant and toddler stories. She's also available to proofread blog posts and websites, often finding broken or inadequate links on author and blogger sites.
In addition, she is accepting new clients for her virtual assistant services which include managing Goodreads and Amazon author pages, handling email, and sending out review requests.
Rachel Rossano writes mostly medieval romantic fantasy novels, but she also wanders into science fiction and other fantasy genres upon occasion. As an indie author, she knows intimately the many challenges facing other authors trying to get their books from polished manuscript to published book. In her own journey, she fell in love with book cover design.
Her business, Rossano Designs, caters to authors of books on the tamer end of publishing who are looking for professionally designed covers and formatting without a hefty price. She also produces ads for InD’Tale Magazine and authors seeking custom images for promotional purposes.
Sage Adderley is a full-time book promoter, author, and mother of three kids. She proudly runs the small business, Sage’s Blog Tours which provides authors (at all levels) the opportunity to showcase their work in a fun and professional way. The company has been hailed by the Self-Publishing Review as one of the top ten blog tour sites! When she is not working with writers, Sage is playing farmer with her chickens and abundant garden.
I began my business just two short years ago combining my previous PR experience with my passion for the written word. An author’s time can be stretched-thin stifling creativity. It takes time and effort to promote and maintain your social media as you grow your audience. Creating innovative ways to connect with your audience strengthen loyalty and keeping your readers informed can be very time consuming. Often these tasks can infringe on all aspects of your life. A good author’s assistant can reduce stress, offer fresh ideas for exposure and aid in uplifting your visibility all while allowing you to pursue your passion.
