Turning writers into published self-published Authors
What's in a NAME?
The name AnJoAlSe Publishing is made up of the first 2 letters of each of her 4 children's names;
'An' - Antonia, 'Jo' - Josephine, 'Al' - Alyssa, 'Se' - Sebastian, and represents the heart of Crystal's inspiration - her family.
Following the very tender and personal experience of writing her debut memoir, Boy of Steel, Crystal embarked on a self-publishing journey, leading to the establishment of her own publishing brand, AnJoAlSe Publishing.
Mentorships are available to writers of all ages, offering the following services:
Inspiration – designed to spark new ideas & breathe new life into the writing process.
Honest feedback – a fresh set of eyes can point out areas that need work or major plot holes.
Professional development – sharing experiences and pointing writers in the right direction, to succeed at both their creative and professional endeavor.
Accountability – assisting writers to set clear goals and maintaining momentum through to completion. Working through writing dry spells.
Emotional support – how to face rejections and feedback as a writer without losing creative flow.
Drawing on the knowledge of experts in each facet of publishing, Crystal quickly discovered which components needed professional input and those that didn't. This valuable and tried and tested tool allowed her to remain in total control of the publishing process and saved her thousands of dollars in publishing costs.
Through this experience, Crystal now has the tools to assist other Authors with several projects in the lead up to their own self-publishing journey. These projects include but are not limited to: ISBN & Barcode set-up, Copyright registration, website design, including host & domain name, social media profile, marketing, including promotional stationary, email signature, banners, etc. Amazon/KDP set-up. Crystal can also provide self-published Authors with guidance and recommendations for outsourced projects and their facilitators. Outsourced projects may include: editing, typesetting, graphic design (book covers & internal text) and global distribution (POD & ebook).
