I got myself into a blog hop again. But I got myself out of it, too, very cleverly, I think. Amy Berry Magaw, a lovely pastor’s wife, has a blog you can find here: www.vcpbooks.blogspot.com . The deal is that she tags me, and I give her a shout-out and thank you (thank you, Amy) and then tag five other bloggers who will keep spreading the word about great books, great writing, or whatever they blog about. But I could not find five bloggers willing to be tagged. So, I planned to just mention a few blogger friends, some of whose blogs I really enjoy. There’s Reader’s Realm http://readersrealm1.wordpress.com/ and Sheila Hollingshead’s Rise, Shine, and Write! http://www.sheilahollinghead.com/2012/03/readers-realm.html, Brad Francis, at http://christfictionandvideogames.blogspot.com/ , and I can’t forget one of my favorites, Debby de Quillettes Alten’s The Watchers: All Eyes Are on Him, at http://gtargirls.blogspot.com/, her blog is just plain beautiful and she posts flash fiction and cool stuff. I am not doing this to stress out these bloggers. I do not expect them to go hopping mad with me. Just want you to know they are out there. Check them out.
Now, I also read an article by Mark Coker, founder of Smashwords, a free upload site where you can sell ebooks and get them distributed to major ebook sites like iTunes, B&N, Sony, Kobo, and others. Love him or hate him, Coker gives away all his services for just a small cut of the proceeds authors get from having their ebooks “out there.”
Coker made a number of predictions for the new year and I especially liked one of them. He said Author Services for Indie writers are going to be BIG in 2013. That sounds good to me, because I offer some author services, and so do some good cyber-world friends of mine. Here you go, aspiring authors. Gear up to be great in 2013.
This is a listing of several kinds of services, folks who will do a good job for authors, Christian and non-Christian. You will find that some artists do custom and ready-made covers, and offer other services like book trailers, business cards, posters and other artistic services. Other services include ebook formatting, proofing, editing and marketing. Some folks offer a variety of services. Contact them if you think they can help you.
ebook Formatting, plus, The services I provide are not set in stone, but a basic list would include: eBook conversion, eBook editing, cover design, graphic design, and light web design. However, I am happy to consider requests that are not in the list.
