Vanessa Swanepoel - Designer

Hermanus, Western Cape, South Africa

An aspirant author who earns a living designing, writing and editing anything from websites to books. Project management and advice.

Overview

Over the last 30 something years I have worked in the media industry as a strategic planner, designer, writer and marketing consultant. For the last 16 I have focused more on web design, social media marketing services and my own information portal approached by author Harvey Tyson to assist him in publishing his "last" 3 books, I have turned my hand to self-publishing and stopped doing anything except this and overberginfo. I manage the entire process from assisting the author to achieve milestones, to editing, typesetting, proofing, and getting the book to print.

I also hope to be able to classify myself as an author (rather than aspirant writer) after participating in this year's NaNoWriMo!

I am available to help others with advice, book cover design, proofing and typesetting.
