I understand the thrill of writing and publishing a book, and the frustrations that sometimes accompany it. I want to help other authors in their journey, especially those who pursue independent publishing, also known as self-publishing. As the author and publisher, you are responsible for everything, from editing, proofreading, cover design, and page formatting. If you don't possess these skills, where do you turn for them? And, more importantly, how can you avoid getting ripped off in the process? That's where I come in. My goal is to help other authors, especially first-timers. While I want to be fairly compensated for my services, I'm not looking to become fabulously wealthy on the backs of new writers. My rates are designed for new authors on a budget. Take a look at my menu of services, and contact me if I can be of assistance. Thank you!

WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING
Bob was an absolute pleasure to work with. As a first time self-publishing author, I needed to up my game when it came to my DIY book cover. I was referred to Bob and I am grateful that I was! He captured the essence of my book content and turned it into a visual masterpiece. I highly recommend Bob’s book cover design services. He is honest, trustworthy and very reasonable with pricing. Bravo Zulu aka Well Done!
– Randall Niznick, In Service to Others
I highly recommend Robert. He is a true professional who provided exceptional service. His attention to detail and care in formatting my book was impressive. A true gem in the industry.
– Mila Douglas, The Dancer at the End of His Bed
Robert Harrison was an absolute pleasure to work with! He is very professional, experienced, and knowledgeable in every aspect of the formatting and publishing process. He not only walked me through the entire process, but he also explained and clarified everything to me as we went along, which was amazing for someone like me who was publishing their very first book. I highly recommend Mr. Harrison for any and all of your formatting needs and if you need assistance or have questions about the publishing process, he's the pro to talk to. Will definitely work with him again in the future with my next books!
– Jessica Mailloux, Symphony of Steel
I recently was ready to format and publish my second novel and had lost touch with my original formatter. Bob came recommended to me in a publishing group and I am beyond happy that we were able to connect. The process was quick and so painless. I would never try to do this myself when there are people like Bob around to make dreams come true.
– Yvonne Avery, Yellow, Fix You, Triple Crown Kingpin, Long Shot Lola, First Edition
First rate technical support, delivered with politeness and a friendly willingness to help at all stages, and a very good price. Exceptional value for money, highly recommended.
– John Guthrie, One More World to Visit, State, and Guardians
Ten years of work came to life in 10 days thanks to Bob Harrison’s gifts and talents. Not only was working with him fun, it was educational and enlightening. He offers attention to detail in his editing work, anticipates issues and resolves them quickly while offering practical steps to take your project to the next level. Bob made sure all the details were in order and even helped guide me through the process of uploading my edited manuscript to the KDP website. After months of struggling to self-publish with another company, his guidance and support made my dream of becoming a published author a reality. His services are top notch and the insights he brings on target. If you are a writer, hiring Bob to format your manuscript, design your cover and walk you through the process will be time and money well spent.
– Jennifer Buss, Better, Not Bitter
All I can say is “Wow!” I dreaded finding a new format and design consultant. Dreaded it! However, I found Bob and hit the lottery. He made the entire process simple, quick and problem-free. Not only that, but his work was far beyond my expectations. Beautiful cover design and great formatting! His suggestions were spot-on and given freely.
Bob was extremely patient with all my microscopic obsessive changes. And corrections and edits were never an issue. In addition, I told him I didn’t need the finished product for a few weeks, yet I had everything within five days! His pricing was ridiculously reasonable for all that I received. And he insisted that he would not send me an invoice until everything was delivered and I was fully satisfied.
Honesty, sincerity, and integrity. Do yourself a favor and trust your project to someone who really knows what he’s doing!
– Laurie Evans, The Afterlife Dialogues
If you need an editor and book designer, I HIGHLY recommend Robert Harrison. He did a beautiful job designing my book. He is professional, has lots of patience, caring, and knows his stuff. He's been a joy to work with! Not only did he design and edit my book but also formatted and guided me through the process in uploading it on Amazon. I'm currently working on a chapter book and will definitely use him again!
– Stepfanie Romero, O, Woman...Daughter of a KING!
The help and support I have received from you throughout both the writing and publishing process has been invaluable. You produced the amazing book cover which I had in my head and formatted the manuscript, turning it into a professional book!
You even helped sort out my blurb and the about the author page!
I was a complete novice and thought I could never get to the publishing stage without someone doing everything for me. However, you patiently talked me through each stage, guided me through editing, and made it all doable.
I seriously could not have wished for better support and I just thank whoever was smiling down on me the day our paths crossed.
