I launched my author blog about three years ago and have watched it grow beyond anything I’d hoped. I’ve met many great people as I’ve made some friendships and have helped some authors along the way.
As luck would have it, I lost my day job about two months ago and I’m still in search of regular employment to keep the lights on and put food on the table.
The silver lining that emerged from this is that I’m embarking on a new venture. During the past year, I have edited books for a few select authors as kind of a pilot and test launch of a set of services that I hoped to turn into a business. My extra ‘free time’ and my need to generate some income, I’m launching a book editing/formatting service formally as a separate WordPress site.
For authors that take advantage of these services, I’m offering complete editing and formatting at a reasonable rate. I bring the expertise that I’ve gained through my decades of editing and publishing business documents and my 10 published books.
If you are an author that I have interviewed on my blog, you will receive an email about this venture as well.
What am I asking you:
This blogging community has been fantastic at helping me promote my books and spreading the word about interviews.
First, anything you can do to help spread the word would be great.
Second, if you already have an editor and you’re completely happy with their services, consider passing the word on to other authors about my new service offering.
Third, if you are considering a new editor, please consider me. I have a great deal of bandwidth and the authors I have worked with will let you know that I’m highly organized and have a quick turnaround.
Fourth, check out the site and consider following it. I’ll be posting articles designed to help indie authors and creating a newsletter for authors.
What I can promise you:
I will keep my author site and this new venture separate. I’ve earned your trust as a blogger and fellow author. I don’t want to beat you over the head with my money-making venture on a site that is designed for another purpose.
I am officially launching the new site today at: https://dsm-publications.com/
Your questions and comments about the site and any aspect of what I’m offering will be greatly appreciated.
