Self-publishing authors have a lot of work to do. I’m up for anything that makes life easier. How about you?
Self-publishing is probably the most time consuming activity you can do in writing. Not only are you writing your manuscript, you then also have to think about hiring editors and a proofreader, formatting, cover art, and back of the back blurb.
