Did you notice how fabulous the cover is for 

Moon, Mist & Magic? 

Then, once you snag your copy (print or ebook!) you'll be able to enjoy the stories from five authors. It's been a joy getting to know these authors better and work on the an anthology together.

But...Moon, Mist & Magic would never have come together if it wasn't for one of the authors- Abigail Owen.

Abigail designed...well, just about everything for Moon, Mist & Magic from the cover to formatting, to—all the multitude of little things an author would need to know, to publish a novel. Since Abigail is well versed in all of these tasks, she completed them effortlessly. She made it look easy (take it from me, it's not easy, lol- unless you have an Abigail—and now you can!)

Look no further! Let's hear all about what Abigail can do from...

What We Do

We know how many different tasks can pull an author’s focus away from the important stuff (writing!). Let us help you out by taking on those tasks for you. Select from our à la carte services lists for editing, publishing, graphics, and social media. Or take one of our workshops to learn how to do for yourself. Let us help you!

We are authors with experience, both self-published and traditionally published. We’ve gone through the process of publishing a book from beginning to end. We are also professionals with 20+ years in web design, project management, business analysis, and editing. Add in a couple of MBAs and a Masters in English, and we have the skills to help you in your own writing and publishing process. Authors On A Dime is excited to share our skills and help out other authors!

How We Got Started

Like most writer's I've always been a writer, but I've considered myself an author for about nine years. In that time, I've published seven novels, two novellas, and several stories in anthologies. With more to come, of course. I love what I do! I consider myself a hybrid author as my path as taken me both through self-publishing and traditional publishing through a small press.

In addition to my writing, I've spent the last sixteen years in the tech industry, accumulating skills like web design, efficiency, project management, customer service, etc. A few years ago, I completed my MBA. One of the best experiences in my life.

Recently, the two halves of my life--my professional life and my author life--converged. I started a business! I admit this is both a terrifying and an exhilarating prospect. However, when opportunity presented itself, I found I wanted to blend the skills I'd accumulated over the years with my passion for writing and publishing. I've teamed up with several people who've helped me in my own writing career. Some are published authors, some not, but all with skills that help authors. I can't tell you how excited we are all to start this venture!

Isn't it cool when things come together like that! I'm still trying to figure a way to incorporate my love of napping with my love of chocolate. There's gotta be a way... Thanks for sharing your talents with us! And you're right, it's great to be freed up for writing while letting someone else handle the other stuff. Best wishes!

M.J.- lol! If you figure out how to combine chocolate and napping- please let me know :)
