“You can think of freelancing as volatile and risky, or as flexible and opportunity-rich. … Freelancing lets you shift gears when the world does.”

Sara Horowitz, author of The Freelancer’s Bible

Publishing Freelancers Showcase

Publishing is an industry that relies heavily on freelancers for a variety of roles including book coaches, illustrators, editors, cover designers, interior content designers or typesetters, proofreaders, indexers and marketers. This showcase will introduce other freelancers that I have come to know since setting up Chapter One Book Production. I hope it will be helpful as a resource for authors needing help with the various aspects of publishing their books as well as being mutually beneficial for the freelancers and small business owners featured.


Each person who took part answered a series of questions and the results were published weekly with links on LinkedIn, my FB page and Twitter.


Please feel free to share with the hashtag #PublishingFreelancersShowcaseBlog.
