I’m George Verongos of Literary Services and I provide authors and publishers with the services and support they need for the next steps to publication. My experience encompasses most genres including YA, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Literary Fiction, Memoir, Business, Education, Academic, and Literary Nonfiction. Those services include editing, development, proofreading, ghostwriting, content design, cover creation, and formatting for several self-publishing formats.
