Need Help with Self-Publishing?

the amethyst angel

For the last couple of years, I have been helping Indie Authors to publish their books. I have had clients in America, Australia, the UK and even the Middle East! In addition to assisting authors with each step of the process, I have created manuals and have held workshops to teach authors the process, so they can do it themselves. Though I have been doing these workshops in person, I have decided to offer them online too. So I am offering Skype sessions, during which I will go through the process in detail, and I will send the materials needed to complete each step. The sessions can be spread out over a few days, or even over a few weeks.

To book your sessions and choose your time slots, simply click here to pay via paypal then you will be taken to my online diary. If you wish to book one session to begin with, then book your next session afterwards, that’s great. If you want to book your sessions in advance, let me know, and I can arrange for a one-off paypal payment, (so you don’t have to pay for the sessions individually)

If you have any questions at all, please do email me at theamethystangel@hotmail.co.uk. I can usually go through the process of publishing print books in about 4-5 hours, and then ebooks would be 1-2 hours extra.

Would you like to be an Independent Author?

the journey

I never intended to begin a business helping authors to publish, but after publishing several of my own, and seeing authors being ripped off by companies that really didn’t have their best interests at heart, it seemed like the right thing to do. Now, since May last year, I have helped several authors, all featured on my website, to publish their work, in a manner that means they retain the copyright, all rights, and all the royalties.

As an Indie Author, I know how important it is, not only to create a professional, polished product, that is at the same standard as a traditionally published book (if not higher), but also to retain all control over the work. Though I need the help of different professionals to publish (cover designers, proofreaders etc.) it’s important to me that once I have paid for their services, that nothing more is owed. Which is exactly what I offer to authors with my services.

It’s also important to me to be not just a publishing mentor to my clients, but also a supportive friend and cheerleader. Being an Indie is pretty lonely sometimes, and the guidance and support of someone who believes in you and your work is so very valuable. At any one time, I don’t take on more than three clients, so I can ensure I have more than enough time and energy to give to each.

I also do workshops, for the Indie Author who doesn’t want the full publishing package, but needs some guidance on how to complete the process, and which companies to use so that they don’t sign away any rights to any companies.

I offer the workshops in the UK, to groups no larger than 6 (a high level of interaction is important) and I also do short talks (approx. 1 hour) on the publishing journey. So if you have a writer’s group, or you know several people who want to learn how to publish an eBook or a print book, get in touch and we can arrange something.

I have posted my brochure on The Amethyst Angel website, if you are interested, and have further questions, please do get in touch. (And if you need a brochure designing, get in touch with madappledesigns.co.uk!)

eBook Workshop in West Wales

I will be holding a workshop in Lampeter, West Wales, on the 6th May, in which over the course of a day, I will take the participants through the process of publishing an eBook. It’s going to be a mad, jam-packed day, as there is quite a lot to cover!

For the course fee, each aspiring author will receive the day’s tuition, a comprehensive manual, and follow-up e-mail support. There are only 8 places left, so if you live in West Wales and would like to learn how to publish your own eBook, get in touch. You can e-mail me at theamethystangel@hotmail.co.uk or call me on 07910946573.

I will be holding more of these workshops in other areas of Wales and England, so if you are interested in attending one, please get in touch and let me know where you are.
