I will beta read your novel, and connect you with literary agents (Beta Reading, Manuscript Critique)

You have a story to tell.

Maybe it's a novel - maybe it's a memoir. But what's a story without an audience?

Maybe this is your first time trying to get your book out into the world. Or maybe you've tried a lot of times, and fallen at one of the many hurdles.

Sadly, the publishing world is full of gatekeepers. They're important - but sometimes they miss great stories that are right under their noses.

I believe that stories are scientific.

Unless you've been living under a rock, you'll have heard all about Netflix and the increased use of algorithms to assist writers in crafting the perfect story.

I'm a published author and screenwriter. And based on my work - in the publishing world and in Hollywood - I've developed a mathematical, algorithmic approach to transforming a story into a bestseller.

I will read your story - in whatever form it's in right now - and show you how to apply my tried-and-tested approach to turning it into a bestseller.

Then - if you opt for the premium package, which I strongly suggest - I will put you in touch with the right literary agents from my network for your story.

Audiobookworm Promotions™ is a multifaceted service aimed at providing marketing, event planning, branding, and design services for the audiobook industry. This billion-dollar industry is immensely popular across the globe, but does not receive the same marketing attention granted to the traditional book industry.

Audiobookworm Promotions’ goal is to provide authors, publishers, and narrators of audiobooks with services comparable to those available to the traditional book format.

"When I finished my audiobook I wasn't sure how to market it, luckily I found Jess the Audiobookworm." -Author Mark Hosack

Angela Wallace (Formatting and File Conversion)

Turning your novel into a clean, professional e-book file can be challenging and time consuming, especially when the technological gremlins rear their ugly heads. With five years of experience formatting and converting e-books for myself and fellow authors, I'll create presentable files ready for upload.

Why use a formatting service?

"Not all indie authors realize that e-book conversion (offered by most major distributors) is not the same as e-book formatting. Conversion just puts your Word file in the blender. Formatting creates a precise, clean, and beautiful e-book—a MUST for anyone wanting to put out a professional-looking product."
~Alina Sayre, award-winning author of The Voyages of the Legend series

E-book formatting and conversion prices*:

10-20k -- $20-$30
20-30k -- $30-$40
30-40k -- $40-$50
40-60k -- $50-$70
60-80k -- $70-$90
80-100k -- $90-$110
100k+ -- $110+

*Based on standard number of chapters. For greater number of chapters spanning shorter word counts (ex. poetry books, short stories collection) a separate price quote will be required.

What you get:
* An epub file specifically for upload to Amazon Kindle
* A generic epub file for other online retailers
* Clickable Table of Contents included

For epub files customized for individual retailers (ex. with book links) - additional $5-$20 per file, depending on number of links
For stylistic additions (special caps, color), images, etc. - additional $15 (No charge for author photo)

I offer simple and straightforward editing services. Bumblebee is perfect for newbie authors, or for those who have received reviews saying that typos and grammatical errors distracted them from the reading experience.

I will edit almost any genre but take particular joy in romance, cozy mysteries, YA, fantasy, and science fiction.

I am a copywriter and editor by trade and have a professional publishing certificate in addition to quite a bit of experience. But because I am new to KBoards I'm offering a deal for new clients!

Send me your manuscript with 30,000+ words and I'll do the first 5,000 for free!

My Prices.

Proofreading (spelling and grammar).
$0.002 per word or $2 per 1,000 words.
In addition to a basic spelling and grammar check, you'll also receive a summary upon completion of the common issues I spotted in your book. This should help you avoid those same issues in the future!

Copy-Editing (spelling, grammar, sentence structure, stylistic errors, wording).
$0.004 per word or $4 per 1,000 words.
You will receive a thorough mark-up of your book, but you will also receive thoughtful suggestions on how you can correct any identified errors, improve readability and avoid confusing readers.

The above prices are a guideline, but I'm very happy to discuss your specific needs and come up with a package that works well for you!

Free sample edit up to 1,000 words.

I want you to feel comfortable with the service you're receiving. Let's make sure that we work well together!

Please email or PM me, I would love to discuss your book.

I am offering a limited number of distinctive oil and acrylic paintings as eBook covers. Most are of English country scenes, although the occasional zombie may make an appearance. My paintings are Impressionist in style and mostly painted alla prima in the location depicted.
Particularly suitable for cozy mysteries, love stories, and when the author wants a cover to set the mood for their book.

I also offer a small collection of eBook covers based on my own original photography - no stock photos used.

*** We teach authors how to enable themselves and their writing, helping them plant the best seeds in the best soil. GET READY TO GROW... ***

Are you in the beginning or middle of your career as an "authorpreneur" (traditionally published, self published, or hybrid, you do just about everything yourself and run your author career like an independent business)?

Do you feel like you know a little bit about most things in the literary industry, but not nearly enough to really sink your feet into being an author, get your career moving, and truly grow and thrive?

Do you have a difficult time finding balance between all the roles you have to fill; between having enough time to write, and enough time for everything else that demands your attention (all that comes with running your author career like a business, the stressors of having more than one job, maintaining important relationships, raising children and/or caring for others, and maybe, possibly, trying to be a functional human being on top of all that!)?

Do you want to hook more readers, sell more books, make more money from your stories, but have no idea where to grow from here to kick-start your journey?

Do you just feel stuck? Like nothing is really 'wrong', but everything is just kind of "fine for now"? There may not be a flashing red light saying 🚨MAKE A CHANGE🚨, but there's a growing itch whispering that you could be so much happier with your life, writing, and career... if only you knew what to do next...?

You know that excited feeling you get when a book's layout looks really good?

You think to yourself, "Wow! I need my book to look this great."

Your book should look just as good, if not better, than books produced by the large publishing companies. Unfortunately, some of today's greatest up and coming books are threatened by the lack of quality formatting. It doesn’t matter if your book is ten pages, or ten thousand. Formatting an ebook for the first time is confusing. It’s time intensive. It’s stressful. But it needs to be done.

That's where I come in. I'm a professional ebook formatter who has helped many books get the polish they need (including all of my own).

When you work with me, you're the boss. Everything I do is done with the intent of empowering you to be successful with the launch of your new book.

-A custom made interactive table of contents. Your audience is two clicks away from anywhere in the book at all times.

-Personal service, by an author for an author. All work is done manually.

-A MOBI and EPub file. Other file types are available on request, free of charge, but these two are my standard.

-Personal approval on the file before the work is marked complete. The power is in your hands. You get to see the book before it's done and make revisions if necessary. I'm ready to be as flexible as possible to serve you better.

-Your book ready within 2 business days. I understand how important it is to get your book back as quickly as possible. My job is to work as hard as possible to get your book back as soon as possible. Late nights are no obstacle. Coffee is my best friend.
