Description

I am a children's author and owner of a small publishing company. I am looking for help with preparing my books to be printed on-demand using Createspace and Ingram specifications. It is a series of about 6 books, and each book is approximately 24 pages. I also need help setting up an interactive business and personal website. I need someone who has experience and loves to be creative and has a warm spot for animals. The first book is specifically for nonprofit, while the other books will have a nonprofit component. I need someone who is willing to give 100% of their time to this project (2 books currently) and is willing to commit to them until completion which I am hoping won't take that long since the first book is almost done, and the second is over halfway complete. There is a format that needs to be followed but I am open to suggestions and originality. Please apply only if you can get this done within the allotted time (1-2 months). Honesty is a must! I need a fully committed and capable person. This can be done by telecommuting, so it doesn't matter where you live! I would love someone with a lot of experience, but as a student I totally understand and am open to quick learners! These books are a huge passion of mine because they are all about educating children and raising awareness to difficult "life issues" like acceptance, facing fears, homelessness, inclusion, and saying good-bye to loved ones. I need someone who shares in this passion and believes that books can make a change in the way a person thinks about their life and the lives of others, both human and animal. I have been working on this series for the past two years and am still looking for the "right" person who can help me get these books print-ready. Social media marketing is a plus! If you are serious, interested, and dedicated to this cause please feel free to contact me! I look forward to your calls and will answer any questions you have.
