As an aspiring author myself, I know expenses can add up quickly. My goal is to offer inexpensive help in order to make your life easier and your stories the best they can be.

I am new to the book world, but bring years of professional experience as a personal assistant, critiquer, bookkeeper, office manager, and nerd.

My services can be customized to best suit your needs, and invoiced per project or month.

I am here to support you throughout your creative process from the first word to a published work, so please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.

WEBSITE DESIGN

You buy your own domain and hosting (I can help with this, but it's better if everything is in your name), and I will help set up a customized WordPress site.

I can also teach you how to use it and maintain it, so you are not dependent on me in the future - although of course I will help, if you like.

Pricing starts at $50 for a basic site of up to five pages

BOOK COVERS

I am not a professional graphics designer, but I am getting pretty good at manipulating images and fonts. Together we can create a cover, or series of covers for your novel/novels.

Pricing starts at $25 for a basic e-book cover.

You can have a look here to see the covers I've made for myself.
