Do you have a great idea for a book, but are not completely confident of your own writing and editing abilities? Or, have you written a book and need to format it for a self-publishing company (such as Lulu, Blurb, AuthorHouse, Lightning Source, etc.)? Does your book need a great front and back cover that is both contemporary and timeless? Or maybe it's brochure, postcard, and newsletter text and/or design that you need.
You've come to the right place. I am a writer and graphic artist with a workspan over twenty years. I have written articles for several publications, wrote a paperback biography of civil rights leader Medgar Evers, as well as two of my own ebooks. I am an experienced Adobe Creative Suite user, and I can also take great pictures - visit my portfolio at Behance.net and see my photos of Venice Beach, the farmer's market, and all sorts of sundry things. Whether I am at home, in the park, sitting on a train or at the coffee shop, my mind is an active factory of ideas and words - a factory that can work for you, too.

I can also help with:
Books (printed and digital, including covers)
I will not assist in projects that promote racism, sexism, discrimination against sexual orientation or gender identity, cruelty, fundamentalist religion, fraudulent or dangerous ideas, undeniable medical quackery, libel and slander, stupidity, and anything else that pollutes the mental marketplace.
I will not work for free unless it's for a cause I believe in, or a tiny low-profit, high-visibility publication. Nor will I work for five dollars an hour. Working for wages too low to support my household devalues not only my own work, but that of every other freelance writer/graphic artist. My fee will be competitive but fair for both you and me.
Note: A deposit of 50% is required for all projects. No exceptions.
