The idea of this page is to give you all a little extra help if I can. I will update it periodically as new things occur to me. I hope you find it useful.

Spoiler Alert
Are you working on a story you would like to Publicize? Are you looking for a way to boost your sales? Why not use the spoiler Alert section of my Blog? There aren’t really any rules for this. I just ask that you are a follower of this blog or follow me on twitter @LincsDave. Simply email 400 – 500 words of the story you wish to promote and I will publish it and keep it on my Blog for one to two weeks (depending on demand) and promote it as I do my reviews and other blog items. Simples! Email me @ david@palmerland.co.uk and put Spoiler Alert as the ‘Subject’ of your email.

Other Resources
As an independent author you CAN do all the work yourself. But if you need a bit of help, here are some other options.

A couple of great cover designers for you to check out.

Personally I would read one of the numerous ‘How to Format for the Kindle’ blogs. These things are rarely as complicated as you imagine.
