AUTHOR SERVICES

PHILOSOPHY

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
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.

  – Soroya MacDonald, Lyrics and Love in Meadow Cliff Bay

I had been given the belief that publishing on KDP was simple – I found it anything but. Following attempts to design for myself, help from friends and a disastrous encounter with Fiverr, I found Robert. He took a messy manuscript and cover and elevated them into something beyond my best hopes. Robert’s communication has been warm, clear and patient and the expertise and experience he offers made me feel in very safe hands indeed for the production of my first book.
  – Jo Huntsman, Energy Medicine Symols
Bob Harrison went well above and beyond his pay grade for me. He had no idea a person with a severe lack of understanding anything having to do with Amazon along with a recent concussion could present him with the number of issues my book and I ended up handing him. I was impressed by his patience and professionalism throughout and I can't imagine going to anyone else, ever. But please keep him a secret, so I can keep him for myself.
  – Elvy Howard, Lady Guadalupe and the 
Sno-Kone Hut
Bob Harrison has been an amazing resource for me in publishing my book. I used his services in formatting, cover design, and uploading to Amazon. In all three of these areas, Bob’s depth of experience and technical knowledge are huge. More importantly, he is an excellent communicator and is able to explain things clearly. Bob is easy to work with, goes the extra mile to be helpful, and I will definitely use his services in all future writing/publishing projects.
  – John Frisbie, The Maine Caper
Every author could blindly trust Robert for formatting! He's reliable, kind and more importantly, efficient. Robert handles everything gracefully, ensuring the author's needs are met and also assists you with great tips! As a debut author, Robert became such a generous help for me. I value his insights and talent to format beautifully. Robert's skills is simply something I can't recommend enough. I'm incredibly grateful of him.
  – Avery Kane, The Ruthless Gangster
Robert has been a priceless aid to me in my journey to becoming an Author. Working with him to accomplish multiple different tasks was never too much of a problem, he is always accessible and has been amazingly helpful to me. No ask was too big or too tedious. His services are never ending and his style is timeless - Robert is always there to pull it all together and do what he can to help. A true professional in his field. Outstanding!
  – Elley Fletcher, Recipes for a Murderer
I can’t say enough about Bob’s professional abilities, but more than that, Bob’s patience, kindness, and optimism were key in reaching my goal of publishing my book. Our productive meetings revitalized my efforts. His rare combination of professional excellence and warm support was vital in helping me persist and bring my book to market. As a matter of fact, I am excited to be working with Bob again on my next book!
  – Carolyn Jarecki, Your Best Kid in 21 Days
Bob gave me new hope when I was struggling to get my book cover just the way I wanted it. I am a perfectionist when it comes to my own work, and Bob took on the challenge with both kindness and a drive to complete it in a timely manner. He knew I was frustrated, and he eased my stress while at the same time creating a beautiful product! Highly recommend!
  – Sarah Jessica Curry, Emerging Light
I was needing a lot of help in formatting one of my books and I actually didn’t realize that I was failing dismally in this department and didn’t actually have one clue in how to format.

I reached out on a writing platform on social media and posted a formatting query and within a few hours, the lovely Robert Harrison came forward to ask if he could help in any way. Well, he certainly exceeded in everything that his services advertise.

Robert is extremely humble in his skill and expertise for anything relating to writing and his knowledge and experience of editing and formatting are quite simply outstanding.

Robert is an absolute pleasure to work with, as he really listens to what you need and your vision for the finish line.

Robert has an extremely high work ethic and everything is completed in a very timely and methodical fashion, ensuring there is zero chance of a typo or any other glitches being able to pop up in your book without your knowledge. I wouldn’t hesitate to highly recommend Robert Harrison.
