A one-stop-shop to take your manuscript from start to published.
Hello, Authors of UpWork, and welcome to your one-stop-shop!
I'm the owner of Deviance Press (deviancepress.com), an indie publishing house based in Atlanta, GA. I specialize in editing, book formatting, publishing assistance, and marketing for authors. I studied creative writing at Indiana University, and am currently working toward my MFA in Writing at SCAD. I've held roles as a Digital Marketing Manager, Magazine Editor, and CreateSpace Contractor over the past eight years.
While at Amazon's CreateSpace (the marketplace's self-publishing branch) I created marketing materials such as covers, back cover copy, product descriptions, and taglines. I have an insight into the Amazon self-publishing world that's pretty hard to find on the UpWork platform. I can help you choose the right keywords and categories to get your book noticed. I'm also familiar with all aspects of Amazon Marketing Services, including sponsored product ads, headline ads, and product display ads. I can consult you on these services, or launch and run the campaigns on your behalf.
I use the award-winning formatting software Vellum to create beautiful books for both digital and print publication. You can choose from various custom styles and designs to suit your preferences. Your books will be compatible across all marketplaces, including Amazon Kindle, Apple iPad/iPhone, Barnes & Noble NOOK, and paperback publication.
Although I'm not currently the most...talented of illustrators, I have a group of artists that I work with specifically who have varying styles and talents. Many clients choose to hire me as a "project manager" who can take care of everything. Hiring one person to look after all aspects of your publishing process can save you an incredible amount of time and money with not only finding freelancers, but also managing them and acting as the "middle man."
