Fully Booked EP7: Do you need an author assistant?
Play • 48 min

Whether you need help with social media, book formatting, mailing list setup and automation, or any number of other things, a versatile author assistant has a range of skills and tools that allow them to take over not just the tasks an author doesn’t have time for, but even the ones they either don’t enjoy doing or don’t have the knowledge to handle themselves.

Erin Tolbert has worked as an author assistant for years, and today she sits down with Fully Booked to go through all of the things that she or her peers can help with, an idea of how much you can expect to pay, and even provide tips on what to look for when you hire them.

So whether you need an assistant on a continual basis, for one-time tasks, or even just to get you organized, the sooner you get the help you need, the quicker you can get back to the part of being a self-publisher that actually earns you money – writing your next book.
