Hello My Imaginary Friends,
This weekend I did a thing… I participated in a virtual convention. It was wonderfully run and a lot of fun. Super proud of the organizers and how awesome they are. The panellists were fantastic and despite my hate for Discord, the conversation there was impressive.
I look forward to the next one and I hope they are happy with how it went.
I was on two panels, which is fair since I’m not an expert in most of the topics. I know a little about a lot. One was my book launch with some other fantastic authors. I wouldn’t say I’m an expert on my book, I only wrote it. My wife read it three times so she’s more of an expert.
The one thing I know very well is layout. I ran a workshop on Saturday evening that was all about layout for authors. I’ve noticed dealing with authors that there are some large gaps in their knowledge of word processing and I wanted to make their lives easier.
I’m hoping to write a series of blogposts about it but I’ve been really low on energy lately and I have a novel to finish by September.
If you are reading this and want more information about formatting, here’s a short list of resources from me.

This is a short list that I hope to be adding to. However, if you have any questions feel free to contact me on the Layout Services page.
