Typesetting

Having typeset dozens of books in my short career in publishing, I can typeset your novel/collection/non-fiction with skill and efficiency, no matter the complexity. I use InDesign and can provide all native files where necessary.

Ebooks

Once your book is ready to print, you'll probably want to think about getting it ready for digital platforms. I can make ebooks ready for Kindle, Apple, Google Play and numerous other platforms. If you've already got your book typeset, no worries, I can still create an ebook for you across numerous formats.

Rates

Starting at £200 to typeset a novel and £50 for ebook creation and conversion, contact me for specifics.

Promotion

SOCIAL MEDIA

Whether you need a brand new social media presence as an author or a brand, or just some assistance in executing a pre-designed plan, I can assist. As Social Media Manager for Bloody Scotland, as well as having run social media for a number of authors, I can be of help. 

WEBSITES

A website presence is essential for an author or brand that really wants to stand out. I can build basic WordPress and SquareSpace sites and draft all the necessary handover notes so you can be fully in charge of your own site.

PR

Got a book or product that needs to be seen? Give me a shout – with a number of contacts across the industry I can assist.

RATES

Starting from £150 a day or £20 an hour, depending on your needs. Contact me for a specific quote.
