I love helping people, whether it's solving a technical problem or filling in the gaps of the publishing process. So if you are a creative business owner and you need help with your technology, you've come to the right place. Likewise, if you're struggling to make sense of your novel or non-fiction project, I can also offer some advice and counsel.Please feel free to email me with questions, or you can keep browsing all the different services I offer. I'm excited to help you!
I completed my first novel more than 25 years ago, and since then I have written around 40 more fiction books. That doesn't count the non-fiction projects I've worked on. So if you have a question about writing, I'm sure I have an answer. Topics open for discussion include (but are not limited to):
- Plot Structure
- Character Development
- Setting Description
- World Building
- Working with an editor
I can help you learn just about any program you will need on the computer. My advanced specialties include:
- Microsoft Windows
- Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint)
- Pixlr, Canva, Picmonkey, Paint, etc
- Internet Explorer, Chrome, and Firefox
- MailChimp, Constant Contact
- General computing
- CSS and HTML
I helped found an independent small press at the beginning of 2014. In my position of production manager, I am in charge of actually making books. So if you want to learn how to publish a book, I can provide direction on the following topics and more:
- Ebook formatting
- Softcover layout
- Book covers
- Distribution options
- Working with literary agents
- Working with authors
What Do I Offer?
If you can watch a video, you can learn how to do nearly anything on a computer. My tech tutorial videos are fun, easy, and never ever boring!
Videos can be fun, sure, but nothing can compare to an in-person workshop or seminar. So gather a group of friends, and let's learn about writing!
Group workshops are fun, but if you need more focused one-on-one time, a face-to-face consult is best. You can schedule a coffee meeting with me, or we can meet over video chat.
Don't take my word for it! Read what other people are saying about my services and decide for yourself.
"In a pinch, I called on Amy at The Creative Techie. Within 30 minutes she answered my questions about MailChimp and now I don't feel overwhelmed! Amy is quick, friendly, and very knowledgeable about technology. I will call on her again.”
