    Crescent Moon Designs' transforms manuscripts into books and publications through detailed design layout and thorough editing. My goal is to create a beautiful and visually-appealing publication that reflects the author's personality and vision, as well as the contents, attracting a larger audience to create more sales, clients and speaking engagements. I work closely, one-on-one, with my clients beginning with our first consultation. During the editing and design phase I provide frequent updates as to the progress and, once your publication has been submitted for printing and publishing, I will stay in touch with you until the finished product is in your hand.

    P.S. I'm taking a break from BlitzTime to concentrate on completing some projects. If you need to get in touch with me, please e-mail me at
    Extremely proficient in Microsoft Office, and becoming more proficient with Adobe InDesign and Photoshop, which I am using for my current project. I also designed a web banner and badge using Adobe Illustrator, along with vector graphics I purchased. You can view the finished product at

    I started out as a word processor, working my way up through the ranks to my final title. Within a few years of first starting, I completed my first manuscript. After that, word got around and more professors and administrators came to me to work in their manuscripts. By the time I left this position, I had completed over 60 publications that became published books, articles published in scientific journals, and training manuals for students, employees, staff and administrators.
