Authors should have a professional media kit to send to agents, publishers, media sources (journalists, advertising agents, etc.), and to have on their website. However, writers are often the worst at talking about themselves concisely and professionally.

Short and Long Bio
Social Media About Blurb
Press Release Template
Sample Q&A Press Sheet

Indie authors can write the most beautiful and creative book possible, even hire the best editors (ahem, me), but if their book formatting is unprofessional, you will lose sales. Book formatting takes approximately two weeks from submission, depending on the size and nature of the manuscript.
Book Formatting includes:
Perfectly placed page numbers,
Chapter and section headings,
Running headers (where included),
Copyright and acknowledgement pages.
Print and digital book formatting.
