I am looking for clients needing help with editing, writing, and publishing consulting.

About My Business:


According to the New York Times, ten,thousand books are published a year. That is not counting the print-on-demand or self-published books released. That's a lot of books. That's a lot of writers. This number doesn't include the thousands upon thousands of writers wishing to get their books published, but not having a clue about how to go about it or what is involved once the book is released. Mystery writer, Lauren Carr wishes that someone had taken the time to tell her what she has learned the hard way. "Six years ago, when I received my proof copy of A Small Case of Murder, I squealed with delight," Carr recalls, "I looked at it's beautiful cover. I ran my thumb over the pages. It looked great. So I picked up the phone, called the publisher and told him to let it rip." Days later, Carr received a frantic phone call from her mother. The copy she had received was riddled with typos. "No one told me that the author was responsible for reading the proof for errors. It had been edited. It never occured to me that the editor wouldn't catch the typos." At Carr's request, the publisher took the book out of print so that she could quickly correct the errors before re-releasing it to the public. Changes in technology have vastly changed publishing. Doors that used to be closed except for the few lucky enough to be accepted by big publishing houses in New York, are now widely open for any writer who wants to step thorugh and come out an author. but if an author wants to be successful in their venture, they need to produce a book that is salable to the readers. This is why Lauren Carr (pen name for T.L. Zaleski) established Acorn Book Service, whose mission is to help other authors achieve their dreams. Acorn Book Services offers help to independent authors via editing, interior layout design, and publishing consulting to mentor new authors through the overwhelming process of publication.
