For all of you aspiring authors out there. I do eBook design and formatting work on the side. I haven't done any projects outside of CD yet (some of which you should be seeing very soon). I price based on length / complexity of the work, prices range anywhere from $50 to $200 per project. If you are interested in this sort of thing feel free to send me a email at danhocker@dhdigitaleditions.com (don't try to go to the website yet though, there isn't one).

I can't submit the stuff to amazon, b&n, and apple for you. But what I do is provide you with files formatted properly to pass their validation checks and what not. You will need to be able to obtain / provide the following for this service. 1. A book cover or un-designed cover art (will design for an additional charge) 2. A ISBN number and 3. the general copyright information. Then I will return 2 files to you, the first formatted for the kindle store and the second formatted for apple / b&n. I can provide other formats on request, but those are the 3 most popular stores.

Very good prices. If I give up on getting traditionally published, this will be a very good route to go. Thanks for the info. The rates are much better than others I have seen.


QQ: Does Cemetery Dance ever open its submissions for new authors, or is it all done via referrals?

I think Brian said it somewhere else, we do, but we are closed because we are still working through the backlog of things we purchased the last time we opened for submissions.

Sounds cool, Dan. A friend of mine does covers. He just did the Spinetingler anthology I'm in, Speedloader, which is an eBook. Boden Steiner.

Well since we're live with the CD stuff I thought I'd give this a bump since you can all see my work now.

I'm currently looking to expand my eBook design work outside of CD, so I've recently started compiling a list of small publishers to contact offering my services. If anyone has any suggestions as to whom I should contact, please let me know. Thanks!

Having purchased the e-book of DARK FORCES over the weekend, I can attest to the fact that Dan's work is first class.
