Working By Yourself Can Be Daunting

Let me take the pressure off, giving you the time to focus on what matters…

For Authors

Self-publishing coaching, editing, formatting for print and digital and help with your author branding and profile.

For Businesses

Copywriting and proofreading, layout of your documents and help setting up your business branding and profiles, both online and in the real world.

For Everyone

A second pair of eyes before your work goes to print; brochure layout, booklet formatting, report creation and idea generation.

With over twenty years’ experience of web and nearly a decade in print, eBooks and creating marketing materials, I know what works. And, what doesn’t.

Happy Clients

About Me

My name’s Emma and I’m passionate about what I do. I’m a small business geek and run an independent publishing imprint, dealing with all logistical aspects.

With experience in formatting and managing both print and digital books, for myself, my clients and my business, I know how the self-publishing system works.

In the past two years, I’ve seen well over a million words go to print or digital distribution, with platforms such KDP, Draft2Digital, Smashwords and Ingram Spark. Books I’ve managed or helped format appear on Kindle, Apple iBooks, Barnes & Noble, amongst other places. My experience with print on demand means I know how to make your books look great, and trust me, there’s no better feeling than seeing all your hard work in print!

I know every step of the self-publishing system, from setting up accounts, formatting your work to look great, selecting keywords and categories to maximise visibility, and zero to low-cost promotional opportunities.

I’m also a web and small business geek with over two decades’ combined experience in web development and helping small businesses with their branding and marketing materials. I’m great at finding new perspectives and inspiring business owners with practical, time-saving ideas as well as helping them foster better client relationships through branding and marketing support.
