Harvey, one book promo ad advertises Facebook group promotions, and it links to fiverr.com gigs that offer paid Amazon reviews and Kindle Unlimited borrows, which commit fraud and are against Amazon's terms of service.  The Facebook promotion is ineffective (see forum thread http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,215904.0.html), so Roxana's only real services for authors are the paid reviews and borrows.

I can't link directly to the ad, but the user name is roxanam84, if that's any help.  The listing is "eBook Promotion to over 100k potential readers (Book Promotions)."

Thanks, Ghost Flight; I thought I had deleted that listing; I may not have confirmed the delete.  It's gone now.

I'm glad to see it's gone. Sad that GF's thread didn't get to be seen by more. It's important stuff.

Thanks, Betsy.  I'm sure you deleted it.  It's just that she had multiple listings.

...(There is a "Publicity" category. Is that close enough to "Marketing" that it would cover your services? I'm not certain that it would be clear to have separate categories for Publicity and Marketing, but am open to your thoughts on that. Thanks!)

Hi there. I agree with having a marketing category, as publicity and marketing are two very different animals. I know this is an older comment, but I would love to see a marketing category. Thanks!

Hi. I'm confused on the "creating a thread in writer's cafe" requirement. Do I create a thread directly in writer's cafe for our publishing service and use that url for the thread link in the YP listing?

(I'm the SoMe manager for this client, and I'm trying to understand the requirement for the listing I created for them.)

Thanks in advance!

This looks like a great opportunity for authors and service providers. I tried to load my ad and it is not showing up when I visit the Yellow Pages. I linked it to my Writer's Cafe post from around January.

Also, I am not sure how to add my logo and banner. I am using Chrome as my browser and when I clicked on the question marks for each of those, nothing showed up. Can anyone point me in the right direction for info on how to add one's logo and banner to the Yellow Pages ad?

Thanks so much in advance for any insights.

It looks like you have it resolved, based on your Yellow Pages entry:

(As you probably figured out, the question marks will display a tooltip for each field when the cursor is hovered over them.)

Thanks so much. Yes, I figured it out. I put my images on Photobucket and got URLs for them that way. For some reason, the question marks didn't open (I'm using Chrome), so I couldn't see what they said. Not sure why that is, but all is well now. Thank you!

Bonnie Turner
Author - Editor - Proofreader

Seeking serious writers only - no rough drafts. My expertise is proofreading, but I will offer suggestions and light edits as needed. Turnaround is about 2 weeks, depending on the nature of the work and my schedule.

About My Business

I am a professionally published author with a great eye for detail. I can help you polish your manuscript before self-publishing or submitting to agents, editors, or business clients. Today, it is more important than ever to make sure your work is as good as it can be.
________________________________________

REFERENCES

"Bonnie Turner's keen eye and practical knowledge of proper punctuation, grammar. and sentence structure are a valuable asset to any novel in its draft stages or the final phase prior to publication. I highly recommend her as a proofreader and copy editor." - Loretta Giacoletto, author of Chicago's Headmistress and other great books. (March 24, 2015)


"I highly recommend the Copyediting-Proofreading services offered by Bonnie Turner. Her work on my novel was prompt, professional, comprehensive and affordable. She is attentive to every detail and provides thoughtful suggestions. The result is a clean manuscript that can be presented to readers and agents with complete confidence." - Daniel A. Smith, author of Storykeeper (June 30, 2015)


"I highly recommend Bonnie Turner as a copy editor and proofreader. Bonnie has a keen eye for catching those pesky errors you thought you'd weeded out, and a wonderful "ear" for the written word. She found more than a few grammar and punctuation errors in the supposedly "clean" manuscript I'd sent her to edit. Also, she pinpointed many places where the writing could have been more fluent and succinctly worded. Bonnie's editing provided the final polish my manuscript needed to make it ready for publication." - Inge Moore, author of Racing on a Wire, and other novels and short stories. (June 2015)


"I highly recommend Bonnie. She is a professional with great skill at writing, editing, and proofreading. What's more, she gives 150% to anything she attempts to do. You are in very good hands when you work with Bonnie." - Mary McPhee, author of Flowers in a Window (June 2015)
________________________________________

* No handwritten documents.

* Prefer fiction, nonfiction, short stories, children's books, novels, e-books (proofreading & minor edits - may help with e-book formatting if needed), biographies, business letters, resumes, obituaries, ad copy, term papers, and articles.

Hi everyone,

I've been holding some 'novel writing' classes in my local community, which has gone down surprisingly well. A by-product is that it's got me more involved in the production / publishing side of things. I've been doing a lot of proofreading, re-writing and even some ghost-writing.

So, I thought I'd offer my proofreading services here. As I'm not established yet, I'm happy to work at a reduced rate. I have some projects lined up for October, but I'm free for the rest of September. I believe I would be especially useful to those starting out as I can quickly format ebook files, too, and hopefully help people avoid the pitfalls that I fell into.

Like you guys, I've been there and done that, and I'm not interested in giving a critique - unless you want me to. I just want to provide a quick and discreet service.

If anyone has anything in need of a quick turnaround, please let me on Lukermallory [at] gmail [dot] com. Feel free to send sample pages.

Cheers,
Luke

I've used Betibup33 for two of my covers, and I love the work she does.  A lot of my readers love the second cover in the series.  You should check out her work.
I'm currently an over the road truck driver, frequently found at the end of a 400 to 500 mile day trying to peck out one to two thousand words on a new book. I'm an Army paratrooper with a background in intelligence operations. I spent six years in Iraq and Afghanistan, in uniform and out. Currently, my greatest challenges are black ice, lake effect snow, and uploading word documents to the ebook format, all equally treacherous endeavors.

  • Marketing Collateral Materials (Bookmarks, Postcards) for both online and print production
  • Business Stationary and Logo Design
  • Catalog Page/Flyer Design for both online and print production
  • Advertising Design for spot ads, article headers, and support graphics including specialty items

My fees begin at US$50 per side and all my work is unique project-derived design, no stock design. Any additional photography or other images used are billed at my cost or are client supplied.

Hi there!  I recently added my services to the Yellow Pages. Then I updated it with a new banner; when I did, it seemed to create a second listing for me. I now see my listing twice, once with the banner, once without. I've noticed a few people's services listed multiple times, as well. Is this just a glitch when we update our listing? Thanks!

Dane--

As the YP listings are tied to a user account, you'd have to either take over the user account, which doesn't seem possible as Martin will still want his own account, or create a new listing.  If you need any help grabbing images, etc, let me know.

Kelly,

sorry, I've just seen this; thanks for letting us know.  I'll take a look and remove the one without the banner.  I'm not sure if there's a glitch or not, but we'll look into it!
