Professional Services

How can I help you?

As it turns out, apart from writing novels, wrangling dogs, and falling down rabbit holes, I have a few other skill sets under my belt. I’ve done professional work in print and digital media for the past fifteen years. From large corporate websites like Philips Sonicare, Darigold Refuel and Allrecipes, right down to independent authors and artists like The Shanghai Pearl. I work in front-end web development, book cover design, email media blasts, regional coding (anything from French to Japanese), QA testing, marketing, and launching content management systems like WordPress and Simple Machines.

So, if you’re looking for a little extra professional help, don’t hesitate to shoot me a message.

Here’s what I can do:

BOOK COVER:

I create high-quality digital designs for both print and kindle/nook devices. Prices are as follows:
Book Cover Design (Print & Web Media): $150

  • This package includes a full spectrum front, side and back cover, plus a web media image of the front cover for promotional use.
  • Once a design mock is approved, stock images are purchased by client (so they retain the rights for use and license).
  • Comes with 2 free rounds of edits (on approved mock design).
  • $20 additional charge for each round of edits thereafter (on approved mock design).

RPG Banner Design (Non-commercial):
            

Note: Please ensure your books are polished and ready for launch (within a final round of copy-editing). Each one is unique in size and scope, so you’ll want to be within a few pages of final page-count to ensure the design is sized correctly.

Note 2: I do not provide hand-drawn book covers. Trust me… nobody wants to see me draw. Nobody.

EMAIL BLAST:

I create professional, responsive HTML and Text emails which work across a variety of devices and browsers. Whether you have a design ready for coding, or need one created, I’m happy to help.

  • Email must be design-approved before coding begins.
  • Upon final approval of code, client will be provided with HTML version, Text version, and images.

DEVELOPMENT:

Need help getting your website running? Whether it’s setting up and styling a blog, or coding a full website, this package is customized for each individual. The web is shifting toward mobile, which means it will be viewed on a variety of devices and browsers. Each site comes with professional, responsive front-end development, quality assurance testing, and we can even chat about design, wireframes, and content if you’ve got a creative brief written on a bar napkin somewhere. (Yes, this does happen)

  • The initial consultation is free.
  • After we chat a bit about the vision for your enterprise, I’ll quote an individual price for the project.

Note: I’ve coded sites in English, French, Danish, German, Swedish, Finnish, Japanese, and a variety of other languages. (Still waiting on Klingon folks, or D’ni.) So, don’t be shy if your site isn’t in English. We can build it first, then work with a third-party translation specialist.

FREE STUFF:

I’m a writer.
I love helping writers and artists from any medium. 🙂

So, as I continue to strengthen the content on my blog, there’s a few things I want to offer as freebies:

  • Cover Reveal: Are you getting ready to launch a book or novella? Maybe a collection of short stories and poems? If you’re working on a cover reveal blog tour and you need a platform to help you reveal the cover, look no further. All you have to do is reach out, and I’ll be happy to setup a date and article on my blog where we can reveal your cover to the world. The only requirement is no MG (Middle Grade) content. Nothing personal, but I post adult content on this site. Don’t want your kiddos seeing the wrong thing. 😉
  • Interview: If you’ve got a book or gallery show coming up and you’d like a little extra audience reach, simply reach out and I’ll be happy to setup a date and time to post an interview. Note: I do paper interviews as I’ve yet to nail down a consistent daily schedule.
  • Adult Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers: We need more of these novels out in the world. If you’re looking to get connected with other writers in this age category and genre, need an extra site for a book tour, or just want to chat about world building, shoot me an email. ASFF Rules!

FINAL NOTE:

If you’d like to know more about the scope of a project, you can contact me here. Once we’ve connected and approved a project, I’ll email a PayPal invoice. All projects will be paid in advance before I start the work. The only exception is large-scope website projects ($1,000+). These I’m happy to break up into individualized payment chunks. 🙂
