I wasn't looking for an answer. I hadn't a clue Rachel was a computer genius. (I later learned her university degree's in genetics. *gulps* That's tough stuff.) But back came an e-mail with simple (but not insulting) steps about how to solve my computer problem. You coulda knocked me over with a feather. Rachel had turned the complicated into something I could actually do on a computer. (If you're not a computer dinosaur this won't translate.) I was over the moon!
Anyway, one thing led to another and, I kid you not, within weeks Rachel was photographing a lit candle on her kitchen table when her mother walked in. This photo became the cover for "Remy Broussard's Christmas."
Actually, after brainstorming ideas for the cover, angels had won the day. All excited, I told hub. "Noooo," he said. "Not angels." (I know. I know. When you're on the two yard line, don't ask about kicking a field goal.) Come to find out, after Catholic schools all the way up, hub had had enough of angels. Something about being an angel in Sister Mary Catherine's school play and after school rehearsals when he wanted to be playing hockey. Guy stuff. (But he was right as the candle really worked.)
But Rachel understood. (Because she's very, very kind-hearted!) But we couldn't find a candle photo. So she took one. Then she had to work her magic on the computer so the flame wouldn't be blurry, like flames can be. But here's the real point: Rachel could've moved on, but she didn't. She stuck with me. As you can imagine, I'm grateful. As is my Marine Corps husband. Sempre Fi is a big deal in our household. We -- my soulmate and I -- really, really want Rachel's launch of Morgan Media to be a huge success.
But, okay, you say, there're a lot of computer geniuses out there. And, okay, you're probably right. But if you need help with the technical stuff that turns your hard work into reality, you need a computer genius who will work with you, something I can't overstate. Rachel's a successful author who knows the devil's in the e-pubbing details. And therein lies the key to what I think will zoom Morgan Media to the indie world's stratosphere: Rachel wants you to be happy. She's very sensitive to you, the person.
This includes budget friendly rates. If you're like me, you don't have a fortune to spend but want to step into the indie world with your best foot forward. I can tell you from experience that Morgan Media's rates are reasonable -- hmm, I think slang says it better: You get a lot of bang for your buck!
Morgan Media's launch blurb is below. If you've got a sec drop by and wish Rachel luck. Or send (virtual) flowers. Hey, you know the custom. (I sent yellow roses.) Don't be shy. Shower her with flowers from your spring garden. Spread the word about Morgan Media on Twitter and FB with each bouquet. Let's join hands with Rachel on this, her special day.
Morgan Media is a small business offering quality services to indie authors at affordable rates.
"I'm an indie author, and it's taken me many, many, MANY hours of work to figure out how to navigate every step from finished manuscript to published work. There's the ebook formatting and the print book formatting and the ebook cover design and the print book cover design. Then comes the marketing--of both yourself and your book--and for that you need blog tour buttons and blog headers and Facebook fan page cover images and artwork for bookmarks and button badges and postcards and whatever else you might want to give away as part of your book launch. All of this takes a spectacular amount of time that you probably don't have, especially if you're busy promoting one book and trying to write the next one. So why not get someone experienced to take care of most of these steps for you? That's what Morgan Media is for."
