We have many who work together to make your dreams come true, but here are a few names you'll want to know.

Founder: These people have been with us since the beginning, and know how to navigate AspenHouse Publishing.

Coordinator: These people know every piece of AspenHouse, and authors themselves. Their own novels have been through AspenHouse's system. They're your point of contact, and are there to answer your questions before your project even gets off the ground. Before anything else, you'll want to pick a coordinator, and the rest of your journey will be that much easier and smoother.

Editing

Proofreading Editor: Nothing discredits an author faster than an unintentional spelling error. These people are naturally perfectionists, and know all the rules. They are there to make sure nothing in the writing distracts from the story you want to tell.

Content Editor: The trouble with being an author is that you can never experience your book as a reader does - for the first time. Content editors want to help you tell your story in the best way possible. They are there to see your novel from an objective point of view, and polish it until it shines. This step is often what helps the truly great works rise to the top, and get audiences coming back for sequel after sequel.

Covers

Cover Artist: These are the people who make it pretty. If you don't have shelf appeal, then it's hard to get anyone to recognize the greatness of what you've done when they don't pick it up. The cover artist has spent a lifetime studying their craft, and are here to help you get yours recognized.

Cover Designer: Like a trailer for a movie, the cover designer takes the cover art and makes it tell the story. These are the people proficient with graphic design, combining the cover artist's work with ours. They're the ones putting a title and your name on the cover. They've studied the trends and know the fatal flaws to avoid in making your book stand out from the crowd.

Tech Stuff

Conversion: One of the appeals of self-publishing is doing it all yourself. We're happy to work with you if you just need to convert your novel to get it on all the e-publishing websites.

Pusher: This is the final step before you start making money. ISBN (recognition internationally that your book is actually a book) and formatting for digital books. Putting it online so the world can start buying it. This person does all the translating for you. If you choose to have someone help you with this portion, you don't need to bother with getting the conversion done. We've got you covered.
