Website Management

Whether you need help with your existing site or a brand new site, I can help you with a variety of website publishing services. Services include updating and maintaining your existing website, installing and configuring a new WordPress website, transferring your existing content to a new WordPress installation, custom theme development, proofreading and copy editing your existing website, and website housekeeping, which will optimize your content for search engines and keep your site running smoothly.

Text Layout & Proofreading

I am very detail-oriented when it comes to text being accurate, consistent, and well-presented, and can help you with a variety of text services. These include copy editing, proofreading, formatting, page layout, and conversion to the media of your choice, including print, pdf, and ebooks that are ready for placement on major retail sites like Amazon, iBooks and Barnes & Noble. Whether you need someone to help prepare your masterpiece for publication, or simply to give your website a good look-through, I will be happy to help.

Online Shops

There are multiple avenues to sell your product or service online, and I can help you get started. I specialize in WooCommerce for WordPress, and can install a fully-integrated estore on your WordPress website, complete with shopping cart, customer accounts, and integration with your merchant provider and shipping carrier. I can also set up a shop on a third-party service like Shopify or Squarespace or help you sell products on sites like Amazon and Ebay.

Additional Content Services

I offer a variety of additional publishing services, including product photography and image editing, technical writing for products and procedure manuals, data entry and organization, audio transcription, podcast publishing, online mailing list management, social media set up, online marketing, and more. I maintain the latest software to handle all of your digital publication needs.

  • I have had the pleasure of working with Celeste on two different projects. First she did the layout, design and final editing of an Ebook I wrote, it is perfect! Second she completely redesigned my website and online school, and even though there were some unexpected problems Celeste kept me informed and explained everything that was going on. When Celeste works on your projects you can tell you are her top priority, she is efficient and very skilled. I love that she gets things done right on schedule. I hope to work with her for a long time!
