Author PA Services
Why waste your time in managing your social media accounts and getting book reviews along with organizing book tours and writing newsletters when you can hire me as your PA?
I am currently working as a PA to a couple of authors, managing their social media and getting reviews for their books. Now they have nearly 100 members in their street team.
Eager to help more authors
- This is based on our mutual understanding on the work to be managed and number of hours required.
- Let me know the tasks in clear terms that needs to be done.
- 3 hours per week per author is my target to get the tasks done.
- I love all my authors and want them to do well in their literary journey and work very hard to help them.
- Please be super-kind as I have just come across unkindness from a couple from the Writing Community.
- TikTok is banned in my country, so I would not be able to work on it. Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Threads are the current social media accounts I haunt. Instagram is my jam.
