This is a great list.  It keeps everything in one place.  I'm curious about a few of these services, and can't wait to see what everyone recommends. :)

  • Publishing Experience:Journalist covering U.S. nonprofits, foundations, and life in general. President and Chief Elephant Officer of Elephant's Bookshelf Press, LLC. Since establishing the company in 2012, we have published ten books, including short stories by several AQC writers and debut novels by AQC authors A.T. O'Connor (aka Cat Woods), "ScubaSteve" Carman, and R.S. Mellette. Heading into 2016, we're aiming to publish at least two books, including the second Mellette novel and an anthology. In 2015, I saw a few memoir/nonfiction pieces published in Red Fez. I expect to do more of that in 2016 and beyond, while also looking to add freelance editing and writing clients.

I'd add to the list of editors: Robb Grindstaff, (http://www.robbgrindstaff.com/), Laura Carlson whose firm is American Editing Services (http://www.americaneditingservices.com), and our own Jean Oram. Each of them copy edited a season of EBP's anthology series. I'm doing much of the current anthology, and I expect to be soliciting more editing work in 2014 (sorry about the shameless plug).

Also added a section listing AQC vendors looking for work. If you are recommended by another person here, I'll move you to the other list. :)

 

If you would like for me to add you to the AQC vendors, post here and include your contact info or website.

Bump.  Does anyone have a WordPress developer to recommend?  I notice that category was blank on the original list.  I could sink hours and hours in figuring it all out, but I'd be better off writing.  My website is functional, but could be much better.
