One of the things I noticed when I first began researching how to self-publish was how difficult it was to find information - real information that would help me to economically accomplish my dream. The biggest set back I had was my lack of money to back my new endeavor.
When you make the decision to self-publish there are a lot of items you should have on your list for your book: an editor, a cover, a formatter, swag for giveaways, teasers, etc. A few of the largest issues with all of these things is knowing who is good at their job and finding someone that is not going to charge you an arm and a leg. I mean, as an author we don't make a ton of money and in so many cases you're not going to make back what you put into those books - especially, if you spend a lot for the items in the above list.
So, here I am with a bunch of skills that have been honed over 15+ years as a technical writer, as an artist, and, now, a published author. I also need to make some money to fund future books and my "poor college student" (as my daughter calls herself). Which is why I'm putting myself out there to help all of you - I'm going to offer my services for a minimal fee for cover design, teaser creation, book formatting for eBook and print, and swag.
