They say, “You are who you associate with,” and at Book Elves, we know full well the value of surrounding ourselves with people who bring a wealth of skill and insight to the table. We have worked hard this past year to put together a solid team of partners who provide a full range of services to our clients in an effort to make the writing and self-publishing process flow as naturally as a mountain stream.
We are pleased to announce the addition of two new author media partners to the Book Elves Partners Team. Book Elves has negotiated special rates with both of these service providers that are available exclusively to our clients. These media packages are designed to provide you with professionally produced results at a significant savings.
