  • Developmental editing, structural editing, copyediting, proofreading, ghostwriting, and ebook formatting

  • I've self-published a successful book, and I've also published through a traditional publisher. I'm happy to offer consulting advice about both paths, including querying agents, developing a book proposal, and selling and marketing online.

  • My method of eBook formatting allows stylistic personalization, unlimited images, and internal and external links. I can also design a simple but beautiful cover. Other than the two Fast Times covers, I designed the covers for all the books on this page (other than the English and Turkish versions of my memoir).

  • Rates start at $25 per hour for students/activists.

  • You can limit me to a maximum number of hours after making it clear what your main objective is. There's a good chance I'll spend more time than the maximum, but you won't be charged extra if so.

  • Write to me at pamolson @ gmail if you'd like to discuss your needs and goals and see if my services might be a good fit for you. I'm happy to answer any questions and look forward to hearing from you!
