Attn Writers! Do You Need Help with Your Platform?

As writers, all we want to do is write. Right? Yet in today’s publishing world, we are required to host a website, build our brand, market ourselves and our books, and more! No wonder so many of us are turning to self-publishing. But that opens a whole new Pandora’s box.

At this stage of my career, I’ve realized I can’t do it alone. And you probably can’t either. That’s why I want to tell you about a wonderful service run by two amazing Christian gals. They want to be here for you. So you can get back to your first love: writing those books or articles you feel called to write.

Meet Teri and Madison at Word & Design Co.! Together, you’ll want to work with this team! Here’s what they have to offer…
