Peak behind the curtain


Hi, I’m Rachel, a professional beta reader and cover designer, owner of Boxed Romance Bargains & Steamy Book Bargains, and I’ve been in the book world for over a decade. A couple of years ago, I convinced my friend Perrin that her 16+ years experience as a web & graphic designer would translate beautifully into cover design, and we partnered to create The Author Buddy.

Let us use our years of experience to help you along your author journey!
