I don't have ads on here. I have me. I use this space to plug me. Wait... Let's rephrase that: I don't assault you with ads you couldn't care less about and that only serve to clutter up the website until it loads slower than an elderly hooker. No, if you see something on here, it's either topical or my own promotion (which usually means it's tangential to the general theme anyhow).
To that end, if you self-publish or know someone attempting to do so, I'd like to take a moment to let you know that, in addition to writing, I am also a freelance graphic designer--on a mission. I want to save the world one book at a time. So, if you want to avoid the mess illustrated here (no offense to this author), then by all means give me a shout. My rates are reasonable and I think you'll find the product more than satisfactory. To see more of my work, you can check out www.fresheiredesign.blogspot.com
And if you're not writing a book, I can also design corporate graphics for your business (cards, brochures, etc...) or perhaps your paranormal investigation team is looking for an interesting promo. Let me know!
