Author’s assistants have been around for hundreds of years. But today being an author’s assistant has taken on new meaning and relevance with the increasing numbers of authors and the rise of self-publishing.
The self-publishing revolution made possible by Amazon.com and print on-demand (POD) technology has made it possible for writers, speakers and subject matter experts realize their dreams of being published—but they need help to do it in a professional way.
Author assistants have the privilege of knowing that they are vital to the important creative and artistic work of the literary world. Believe me, there is nothing more exciting and fulfilling than seeing a book you helped create sitting on a bookstore shelf or for sale on Amazon and available to the whole world! It is extremely satisfying to know that you were a big part of making it happen and getting it there.
