Author Services

When I published my debut novel, it was all through the help of the online bookish community. But even with connections, there were many times where scrounging around for options ended up being frustrating as I struggled to find something that would work for me and my story. Fortunately, I got to work with amazing people and would like to give back by offering services of my own. Payment would be through PayPal. If you have questions, use the contact form below to ask!

The first five clients will receive 50% off any of the services listed below.
