Help For Writers!

Writers, do you need a little help?

Some people may not realize that I offer several services for writers and authors. There’s a brief listing under the tab above, or you can follow the links below. Whatever I can do to assist you in your author journey or help you to produce the best quality product possible, please let me know!

Private consulting for writers

Unsure what path to take or where to begin? I work with writers starting on the journey, providing them with information, links, and the knowledge they need to succeed.

Book formatting services

Need to prepare a book for your printer? Let me help you make it look professional and top notch!
I also do e-Book formatting - contact me for assistance! (Especially if you are struggling to get your book into distribution or a national catalog.)

Book cover design

A fantastic cover draws attention! For professional cover art/illustration/images, including full wrap around design, contact my husband Craig.
Also, inquire about professional book trailers and logos.

For services I don’t provide, I can point you in the direction of a professional - just ask!


  1. I knew that you did some of this, but didn't know you did cover design. You are one talented lady! Will keep this in mind for future reference, thanks!

  2. Good to know. I tucked this post into my "resources" folder.

  3. I didn't know you were providing services for writers, Diane. This is very good to know if I ever finish the current WIP, or decide to make my memoir into an e book.

  4. Great job, those are wonderful services to help authors.

  5. I had no idea you did all that along w/ writing & public speaking! You are a very multi-talented person. I'll make a note of this for my files--thank you! :)

  6. Being an author doesn't pay the bills! I enjoy doing this sort of work, as I'm a detail kind of person.

  7. You're amazing, Diane! I don't know where you find the time...and everything you do is always with an eye to detail.

  8. I find creative people generally have several creative outlets they enjoy.

    I do keep a folder on services, such as these, and pass them on to others. I need to find a way to set up a folder or page on my blog with this sort of information. I didn't realize Craig designed covers. I loved your covers.

  9. Hi Diane .. just recommended Glynis pop over and check your knowledge out .. hope she does -

    I didn't know your post was this!

    Cheers - I know where to come when I need some guidance .. thanks - Hilary

  10. Good tips as always. Thanks.


  11. You and Craig are pros for sure and we have often seen the evidence of that here and elsewhere. You've definitely got lots of experience to back you up and after seeing examples of Craig's video work I have no doubt about his artistic abilities.

  12. It always good to know people like you who provide a range of services for writers.

  13. You do offer a lot of services. I've been thinking about teaching classes. I'll start in an actual classroom I think. Anyway, I have so much critique experience it seems a good idea to share.

  14. Diane, you are a gem. I'll think of you the next time I need help with one of these.


  15. That's really cool! I'll keep it in mind because I love your stuff.

  16. Wow, all that and spunk! I fall in the first category so you may just here from me. :)

  19. Elizabeth, some days I don't if I'm coming or going...

    Thanks, Sia! And yes he does.

    Thanks, Hilary. I appreciate that.

    Lee, I'm blushing!

    Nancy, I started doing seminars through our community college - been doing it for several years now.

    Jules, let me know how I can help!

  20. Will consult with you when I decided to write my memoirs. Greetings.

    Best wishes for your consulting services. I'd be happy to put up something on my blog, an image and a promo line with a link. I can do that in a day or two.
