- Uploading the formatted books including the covers to the aggregator sites.
*Please note: My services do not include developmental editing or evaluation for fiction.
My career in editing and writing started with a Smith-Corona typewriter.
In college my first typewriter was a Smith-Corona portable. It had its own carrying case. You could lug it around. It weighed about 10 pounds. I used carbon paper and thin yellow sheets of paper with what literally looked like bark in it, to make duplicates. I still have some of those in a box in the basement.
