This page is to say thank you to the various people who have enabled me to transform from being just a writer into both an independent Author.
Alinka Rutkowska – Alinka’s Author Remake Pro course taught me lots and lots about the whole cycle of self publishing, and I would recommend it to novice authors.
Joanna Penn – although I have never met Joanna, I found that her website and her guides and advice are very comprehensive and inspiring free resources for a brand new novice indie author. Although there are many other guides and websites out there, which are also useful – I would recommend hers as a great place to start. (http://www.thecreativepenn.com/ ) Joanna’s advice to be your own ‘Creative Director’ has proved both sound and fun.
And check out Derek Murphy’s Creativeindie website for a lot of useful resources for new authors
Website & WordPress Consultancy: Callia Web. A friendly UK based web design company
Cover Designs: I tested several different designs and designers. However, the first releases of the Eternal Flame Series novels are the work of Les (germancreative@Fiverr). She came up with a nice style which accurately reflects the sub-genre of contemporary Adult Romance.
Editors – as a new author I have also experimented with various editing services, from developmental to plain proof reading. The editors who I felt most comfortable with are:
- A.J. McGinnis
- Allison Erin Wright
