|Über uns||Book services by an author to fit every author's needs. Book cover design, website design, book formatting, and social media art, including advertising|
Every author out there is trying to become successful. The secret to becoming so is not to spend your time spamming Facebook and Twitter. No, the secret really isn't a secret at all. To shine like diamonds in a room full of glass you have to offer a professional product that stands out. This means a book properly edited, professionally formatted, and well-presented (cover and media art). Sure, you can forego an editor, format the thing yourself in a generic way, and purchase some pre-made cover art, but then what would make you any different from thousands of amateur authors out there?
The fact is if you want readers to purchase your books in today's ultra-competitive market, you must be willing to invest in them yourself. I understand, however, not everyone has a fortune to spend and strive to keep your costs to a minimum in exchange for a professional product. Being an author, I can empathize with your plight. I also possess unique insights into the publishing industry that most other design services do not. Whether you need a cover, formatting, an online presence, or all the aforementioned, you've come to the right place.
As for my qualifications, I'm a professional artist and software engineer who's been working in such capacity since 2002 for the likes of AT&T, the states of Arizona, Colorado, and Wyoming, the University of Washington, Northrup Grumman, and the Salt River Project. I became an author a few years ago; traditionally published at first, then went Indie. After I started designing my own covers and displayed my website and book formatting, other authors requested my services. I had to decline everyone except for a few close friends because of previous commitments. Those commitments have since been fulfilled and I am open for business.
