“Effrosyni has worked with me on several novels and her light, sure touch and understanding of the movements within a novel have helped to lift my works to a better level.” ~David Wind, author of fantasy, scifi and historical fiction

“Everyone knows you can read a book 1000 times and still find errors. That is unless you have Frossie proof it – She’s all you need! Only she can catch the tiny errors no one sees – until it’s too late!” ~Amy Vansant, author of fantasy, cozy mystery and romantic comedy

“Working with Effrosyni is both fun and efficient. She is highly skilled and will see even the tiniest mistake in the documents she edits and proofreads. Even on proofreading jobs, Effrosyni has been generous enough to do some edits when she felt it was necessary. I’m looking forward to working with her again in the future.” ~Chris Kallias, author of the Universe in Flames scifi series

“Before one of my books is submitted for publishing, it has at least 4 pairs of eyes on it. The last set of eyes being Effrosyni’s.” ~Monica Barrie, historical romance author

ARE YOU A NEW AUTHOR?

If you’re still learning the ropes, chances are you could use general advice from a knowledgeable author and even assistance with publishing your precious first book. Beware, though: not all options are safe. So many sites, for example, promise publication and distribution services to new authors but the pitfalls are in the small print. Next thing you know, you’re receiving a lot less for your hard work than you’d thought. Savvy author and blogger Nicholas Rossis can help you publish your book and even offers online consultations by the hour. Contact him here via his site for a friendly chat and see what he has to say. Other than being tech-savvy, he’s also one of the sweetest and most giving people we know. If you wind up working with him you can only benefit.
