Rustic Studio Author Services
Need a self-directed assistant to handle the busy work so you can focus on writing?
New to indie publishing and need a helping hand?
We’ve got you covered…
Welcome to Rustic Studio Publishing — Here’s what we offer
- Formatting: E-Book — All retailers
- Facebook Ads: We can create and manage Facebook ads and set up BookFunnel or Instafreebie for free downloads, however, we cannot guarantee ROI for Facebook Ads.
- Uploading book files and metadata: All retailers. (iBooks will be an additional $30/upload).
- Newsletters: We use Madmimi and Mailchimp. If you use another newsletter service (i.e. Vertical Response etc.), we will gladly use it if the learning curve is short.
- Mailing list maintenance
- Website updates: WordPress
- Social media updates: Facebook, Twitter (can schedule both via Hootsuite), Instagram, Pinterest, and Vine.
- Goodreads: Set up, giveaways and responding to author questions.
- ARC list: Set up and maintain ARC list. We use Instafreebie and BookFunnel to provide books to ARC readers.
- Book Promotions: Scheduling and submitting promotions (including BookBub)
- Answering reader mail: As needed.
- Complete online setup for authors taking their first steps into indie publishing — YOU keep your royalties.
- We use Last Pass to access author accounts: This prevents authors from having to share their passwords.
- We use Wunderlist for Author Tasks Lists: This enables authors to add tasks in real time. It also allows authors to see when a project or task has been completed. This also allows us to add tasks for the authors (i.e. provide book metadata for new release upload, provide finished book draft by X date for formatting, and so on).
To enable us to provide the highest level of service to our authors, we must limit the number of authors we take on. We require a commitment of 4 hours minimum per month at $30/hour — we, in turn, provide a fully trained self-directed assistant who is experienced in working with New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors. *Any hours/money not used will roll over to the next month (or be refunded should the author choose to discontinue using our service — there are no contracts to worry about).
