Of course not. I’m happy to work with all authors.
That said, I do believe in indie publishing. Indie authors put their heart into their work as much as anyone else. They deserve editing and layout services delivered with the same kind of passion.
Traditionally published authors typically benefit from in-house editorial services and professionally produced books with well-executed layout. Indie authors, however, are on their own in acquiring these services, which typically are outside of their skillset. There are some really great freelance editors and book finishers who do great work at a fair price. However, there are also a lot of scams out there, including self-described “publishers” who actually charge the author for everything, including print runs, and self-proclaimed “experts” who provide shoddy work. We as an industry need more of the good kind of services. I’m here to be a part of that.
