Virtual Assistant in Independent Publishing- We help authors succeed


Signature Author Services

 What do we do?

     We help authors by being a virtual assistant for independent publishing. We do most of the things that you hate to do…chores that zap your time, energy, even your creativity so that you have more time to write. See our list of services and we are adding new items too. If you need help with something you don’t see listed, ask us! We might just haven’t thought of offering it yet and will be happy to help in any way we can. If we don’t have the expertise, we likely know someone who does.

Who are we?

     We are authors too. Signature Author Services was founded by author Scarlett Braden, also S.J. Braden. She knows what authors need. Especially indie authors. Scarlett is adding staff as needed to cover new and additional services.

How do we charge?

     We offer a variety of options to fit your needs and budget. Nearly all services are available a la carte fashion with either an hourly or set price. We also offer monthly hourly discounted packages. We can help you during book launch, for specific platform building, formatting, or continuous monthly social media management. It’s all up to you.

Why are your prices so cheap?

     Yes, we actually are told all the time that we don’t charge enough. Is it because we don’t know what we’re doing? Or maybe because we offer crappy service? Nope. Neither. Just like when you sell the first in series for .99 cents or heaven forbid permafree it doesn’t indicate a lack of quality. We are able to charge less than other services or individuals because we call the majestic Andes mountains of Ecuador home, and the cost of living is quite a bit less than in the old country. But we have to make some money, to pay for our time away from writing too.

How can we help to keep your prices low?

     First and foremost, have all your information together and ready. Don’t make us send multiple emails requesting the same things. Those cost us time and you money. When you contract with us for services, we will ask you for what we need to get the job done, if it’s a bio, a photo, etc. Also, we work mostly through word of mouth. Tell your friends about us. We appreciate it. The more customers we have the less we can charge.
