We partner with you and support your efforts to promote and publish your books.

We learn the tools, study the industry trends, and perform the tasks so you don’t have to spend the time.

We take on a limited number of projects so we can give personalized attention where you need it.

We work with you to ensure you’re ready to proceed without us once our portion of the work is done.

Time and Money

We authors have two core currencies: time and money. You spend these two assets to get your publishing career off the ground and then grow it.

I’ll lean on a cliché and say that time is money, but money can also buy you time.

There are so many things that consume your time:

  • Learning new tools and tactics. The teachers are out there. The knowledge is available and free, but is the time you’re spending learning taking away from the time you could be creating?
  • Setting up tools and implementing tactics. Iterating through your mistakes. These are time-intensive as well.
  • Monitoring tools and maintaining tactics. Your job is never done, and your time continues to be pulled away from what you love most: writing.

Is there a way to streamline these processes?

Let’s be real. One could argue that your #1 priority as a writer is finding/buying time to spend “ass in chair,” writing. Without a product (your books!), it won’t matter how strong your social media presence is.

I know how this is, because what I’ve described above has been my path. I’ve learned the tools and tactics over years of study (and neglecting my writing). I’ve set up those tools for myself and others, and I’ve developed strategies, shortcuts, and systems for monitoring them in the most efficient way possible. These are the assets I bring to the table.

When I left my cubicle in the corporate world—where I was a game writer, narrative designer, and project manager for decades—I rededicated myself to my own fiction-writing career and to helping others be successful, efficient authors.

Angels for Authors is my bridge between the corporate world I left behind and the novelist career I see in my future. I may not be doing this forever, so take advantage of my hard-earned skills and knowledge while you can. My own writing career will, at some point, take me over. In the meantime, we’re here to help.

How valuable is your time?

Let Angels for Authors help you get set up for success. Let us save you time for writing!

Loren Rhoads - Author, LorenRhoads.com

During the five years that I served as the President of the Horror Writers Association (HWA), I thought of Angel as one of my secret weapons. Whether the organization needed a website overhaul, installation and configuring of a new platform, or just routine updating, Angel was always prompt, polite, and hard-working. Angel's skills and attitude took the HWA to the next level, and she can do the same for your web presence.

When I recently merged two of my websites, what should have been a seamless transition turned into a mountain of rare complications, leaving even my hosting service at a loss. After contacting Angel, she was able to identify the problem, repair the damage, and merge the websites into one within a matter of hours. Her expertise — and assurance — was invaluable at a time when I was ready to throw in the towel. If you need technical support, a call to Angel is the only call you’ll need to make.

As a writer herself, Angel understands the unique goals and challenges authors face and how technology can really help their writing career. Whatever your tech needs, you'll be in excellent hands with Angel Leigh McCoy.
