NOIS has brought together an incredible list of Partners to offer services and products at a discount to its members, and to help creative entrepreneurs find clients and content.
The Refinery is a partnership between freelance editors Crystal Burton and Alison Weaverdyck. We met while working for the same small publisher in 2016, but after it closed its doors we’ve come together to offer literary services to independent creators at reasonable rates. Find out more.
Over at Just Publish It Already, Laura Callendar is offering discounts on cover design. She primarily uses photographs and beautiful typography in her designs, and will work with you as long as it takes for you to be happy with the results. Plus, she’s extended her 25% on cover art to ads and bookmark designs, so even if you’ve already got a cover you love, you can give it a new lease on life as part of an eye-catching piece of promotional material.
Steampunk Parliament is both a blog tour Partner and a Steampunk artist offering discounts on hand-drawn design elements and book covers. At NOIS, we thought there would be lots of Steampunks who would like her quirky style. Bess Goden can also put your logo or emblem onto a variety of products such as pendants and charms.
Airship Ambassador is the steampunk community’s leading and longest running news and information resource website, sharing links to all aspects of steampunk creativity in a daily news feed, along with weekly interviews with established and upcoming authors, artists, musicians and more.
