Techie Muse — Greater NYC Area, New York, USA As a professional speaker, YOU ARE BUSY! You are probably traveling a lot.

Techie Muse — Greater NYC Area, New York, USA
As a professional speaker, YOU ARE BUSY! You are probably traveling a lot. You have a lot of moving plates in the air in that not only are you doing what you do best…speaking, but you are also providing interviews, writing books and eBooks, developing other products, and constantly researching, honing your craft and marketing yourself.

How Can Techie Muse Help You?
I can help you develop a visual brand and cohesive online presence, as well as design and develop a website that can be the hub of your online business and marketing efforts. I can create online videos to promote and market your services, and design a speaker one-sheet as well as other graphic design collateral. I can train you or your virtual assistant with personal technology training. And as a former eLearning developer, I can help you produce online courses or workshops you’d like to sell.

Hi! My name is Kary Dunham and I am the owner and designer at Techie Muse. I want to provide my 20+ years expertise in technology and design so you can spend less time doing the things you don’t want to do, and more time doing what you do best, motivating and inspiring others! Throughout my varied career I have been an art therapist, art teacher, multimedia and design teacher, technology trainer, web and graphic designer, and e-learning developer. I received my B.A. in Fine Arts and M.S. in Art Therapy. When I moved to NYC almost 25 years ago, I started taking classes at The School of Visual Arts in graphic design, illustration, typography and page layout.

Computers and technology came into my life over 20 years ago when I taught myself how to use Adobe Photoshop. I was instantly hooked. Eventually I also taught myself how to use programs for multimedia, digital video and audio editing. I also became very interested in web design and earned a certification as a web master over 13 years ago. This led to working as a part-time freelancer in web and graphic design for many years.

I earned a Master Technology Teacher (MTT) certification, and after several years teaching high school multimedia, I moved to the district level to train teachers how to integrate technology into their classroom. It was about this time that I started hearing about blogging, podcasts and Web 2.0, and trained others how to use these technologies.

After 20+ years as an educator, I decided to change careers to work as an eLearning developer. For several years I worked in the IT department of the largest school district in the U.S. and a Fortune 50 company developing 100s of online trainings.

Now my desire is to take everything I’ve learned and experienced over many years, and lend my extensive technology and design expertise to speakers, authors, coaches and professional bloggers.

Hello, I’m Janet Morrison, owner of The Writer’s Site and I specialize in helping you – the author – through the writing and publishing process. As a Virtual Author’s Assistant, my services provide administrative order for all the writing and publishing tasks ahead of you, in the right time frames. In the early stages of writing, this might include: creating an inventory of your intellectual property, researching your potential audience, researching potential publishers and assisting with the book proposal, fact-checking, obtaining permissions, overseeing the review process, organizing front and back matter, and finding reputable book and cover designers and printers that are right for you. Later on, I can assist with preparing the manuscript for submission, handling proofs, and coordinating the many details of publishing (obtaining the ISBN and bar code, registering the copyright, sending copies to the national library) . In addition to creating a task list and tracking tools, I will oversee a plan of action and coordinate the flow of information as it comes in, ensuring that nothing is missed in the publishing timeline.

AdminiSmith/PublishingSmith — Austin, TX, USA
We provide services to authors, speakers and entrepreneurs through two branches of our company — PublishingSmith and AdminiSmith. Through AdminiSmith we support authors, speakers, and other entrepreneurs who have better things to work on than administrative details but know that ignoring those things can really hurt their business. Things like:

  • Bookkeeping
  • Mailing list management
  • Newsletters and eZines
  • Blog maintenance
  • Information product development
  • Travel arrangements
  • Calendar management
  • Other administrative details

Through PublishingSmith, we work with passionate, creative people who want to become published authors. We guide authors through the entire publishing process from start to finish. Our first step is to discuss the author’s goals for the book and the advantages and disadvantages of self-publishing and traditional publishing. Most of our clients choose to self-publish and we help them form their own publishing company so they are publishing under their own imprint. We put an end to the anxiety of publishing by handling all the details, connecting our clients with vetted book professionals and making sure they avoid the many scams, mistakes and pitfalls that can derail self-published authors.

We are committed to helping authors retain maximum control and ownership of their intellectual property while maintaining the highest standards of quality publishing.  It is our goal that our clients will hold their self-published book in one hand while holding a traditionally published book in the other and not be able to tell the difference.

Let us help you focus on your genius work while we handle the details of your business.

A Novel Space – Inglewood, CA, USA
I work with fiction authors who struggle with finding time to write, research, locating speaking engagements or handle the paper work. Through A Novel Space, I am their behind-the-scenes right hand that takes these important, but time-consuming duties off their shoulders and give them the freedom to create the stories their readers enjoy.

As a result, my clients receive the support of someone who shares their love of fiction writing, and can provide the assistance they need. The final result is a writer who has time to write, showcase their passion, and interact with their readers.
