There are many things a good author’s assistant can provide for you. Here is a list to give you an idea of things we will help you with. Together, we can do more according to your needs.
Author’s Assistant Services With Descriptions:
Idea Bouncing – Because sometimes the best ideas come from bouncing them off another person. Or sometimes, you just need to talk to someone to make the idea flourish.
Beta Reading – Not a full edit, but a report on the overall structure of the story, character development, and themes within the book. We would also discuss the report via Skype or email. Please see our Beta Reading Information & Pricing page for more information.
Keeping a Calendar – One of the best ways to stay organized is with a calendar. However, it can be stressful getting one going. We can help you set it up and keep track of what’s going on in your writing life and have reminders sent to you so nothing is ever forgotten.
Publishing Help – Self-publishing is our specialty, from ebooks, to PODs, to front and back matter, we can guide you through the process
Reviewer Contacting – Whether it’s getting you a list of bloggers and guiding you through the process or letting us contact them on your behalf, gathering reviews is critical to getting your book out there and getting known.
Running Contests & Giveaways – From brainstorming ideas to running them, we can help you with all the details.
Newsletters – From designing to sending it, we will take care of it all for you.
Emails – Whether it’s answering fan mail or helping you get organized, we can take care of your inbox.
Marketing Materials – We can not only help you come up with what works for you, we can help you create marketing materials. Think bookmarks, pens, chap stick, jewelery, swag, memes, etc. We will find what fits you and your book(s). Please see our portfolios for some examples of our work.
Book Covers, Facebook, Twitter Cover – Sometimes it is hard finding the right cover for your book, FB page, Twitter page, etc. We can help you create the covers you need at a low cost to you. You’ll just have to pay for the time it takes to make these covers (typically 3-4 hours) and the images we use (typically $1.00 each from dollarphotoclub.com). You’ll be given unlimited revisions, to get the cover you desire. Again, please see our portfolios for some examples of our work.
Blog Tours – We can help with brainstorming ideas for topics and deciding what would be the best options to go with for a book tour. We can also arrange stops on your tour, or work with a blog tour company on your behalf.
Requesting Marketing Ads – Advertising is important, but you don’t want to spend your hard-earned money on ineffective promotions. We will help guide you to ads that are currently working, such as BookBub, ENT, Pixel of Ink, etc. and assist you in the process of using them to their full effect.
Amazon Author Page – This is critical to keep up to date, both for readers finding your books, and for having you recognized by search engines.
Goodreads Author Page – We can create a GR author page for you and make sure all of your books are listed correctly. If you already have a Goodreads account, we can help you make the most of your experience as an author on Goodreads. We can also join/post in groups on your behalf.
