ABOUT

Helping authors conquer technology

Optic Imprint is all about assisting indie authors in their daily trek through the jungle of technology—from updating their websites with their latest book, to setting up an email list to send out a newsletter.

How much time do you waste on figuring out services and technology? How much is your time worth?

If you wasted 10 hours last month on figuring things out, and you type at an average speed of 60 wpm, you missed out on 36,000 words. You could have finished a novella, and be selling it on Amazon right now, earning money, earning back what you spent on someone else (me) to “figure it out”.

So, maybe we should ask a different question. How much are you willing to invest in your business, if you knew it would pay you back with interest?

Elmi Raubenheimer

Designer, Copyeditor, and Tech Wiz for Authors

 

I have a Bachelors Degree in Visual Communication from The Open Window Institute, and have experience in many fields of visual design: video editing, photography, branding, interactive media, web design, graphic design, and even fine arts.

My great love, though, is web design, and my passion is WordPress websites. I have had blogs on every major blogging platform, free and paid, over the last 10 years, and still maintain personal blogs on both Blogger and WordPress.com.

I am a writer and avid reader myself, and have published 2 series (so far) under a pen name. I understand the unique challenges of author sites, and the ins-and-outs of e-book conversion. I have been part of the wonderful world of self-publishing for 5+ years, and regularly participate in different forums and Facebook groups.

I am the mother of 2 amazing children, and am not embarrased to admit that I’m totally addicted to chocolate.
