Collaboration & Virtual Employee

While writing a book may be a solitary activity, producing and publishing a book is not. The best results are obtained when working collaboratively with a team. (And it’s more fun!) This team can be made up of: the author, the designer/production artist, illustrator, an editor (or two); the publisher (which is sometimes the author), a book publicist, a web developer or social media contractor, or other specialists. Not every book needs a full team—nor will every team have the same members. I’ve worked with and led many virtual teams—putting each contributor’s strengths to best use for accomplishing tasks that will help authors and publishers achieve specific goals.

For publishers, I can, and have worked as a virtual staff designer and production manager on specific projects—short or long term.

  • “Even if the book were never to get published this graphic of your cover tells the story. It is powerful. … the cover has to grab the viewer and scream at him/her “Pick me up and read me.” That’s the feeling I got when I first saw the graphic.”

  • “Sue did an outstanding job designing my book, Life with McDuff: Lessons Learned from a Therapy Dog. Her experience and expertise proved very helpful throughout the process. Most importantly, Sue was a joy to work with because of her patience, attention to details, and promptness.”

  • “… the high production value of 100 Years [In the Nevada Governor’s Mansion] for which both Jack Harpster and Sue Campbell are to be commended. With color photographs and illustrations throughout, plus the attention to graphic design …. In a word, the book is sumptuous, and it will serve as resource for Nevada history as well.
