“Archangel Ink was created by authors, for authors.”
Rob Archangel here, logophile, communication enthusiast and self-publisher. Several years ago, I worked as an assistant to the publisher of the longest running permaculture journal in North America and got my first taste of the publishing world. Long passionate about writing and communication, I partnered with my buddy Matt in 2012 to expand the reach of his site, www.180degreehealth.com
, and spearheaded his entry into the eReader, print-on-demand paperback, and audiobook world. Realizing I have a knack and a passion for the process, and that all my time spent learning the ropes could be of value to others, he and I founded Archangel Ink
as an umbrella outfit for all one’s independent publishing needs. My goal is to help authors and entrepreneurs navigate the self-publishing landscape as painlessly as possible. From cover design and editing to ghostwriting and audiobook production, we let the content creators focus on whatever it is they love to do while we add efficiency and professionalism to the rest of the process.
Hi I’m Matt Stone
, author of more than 15 books, my best a #1 Amazon bestseller in its category for more than 17 straight months. I’ve written, sold, produced, and published my books in every conceivable form: websites, paperbacks, book bundles, Clickbank, my own affiliates, audiobooks, foreign markets (translations), and sold books at just about every retailer on earth. I even sold a few books at Google Play. Trust me, that’s not easy! You name it I’ve tried it, and I’ve also published two books through the traditional publishing route. At one point, I also narrated
a book or two per week!
I must say, when I got out of Creative Writing school nearly 15 years ago, I had no idea how I was going to make a living as a writer. But now it’s actually possible to survive off of the written word. Still, there are some formidable barriers–mental, financial, and otherwise–that prevent a lot of really intelligent and well-spoken people from actually making this dream a reality. Rob and I decided to launch Archangel Ink and let writers write while we take care of the rest, sparing you from all the dumb rookie mistakes we made in the process of cracking the code.
Hi, I’m Kristie, the Publishing Coordinator here at Archangel Ink. Besides handling the day to day operations and coordinating all of our projects, I’m also an organizing ninja and email extraordinaire.
As a homeschooling single mom with a passion for psychology and the human experience, my background in billing, physicians credentialing, finance, sales, and telecommunications make me just OCD (or crazy) enough to keep this machine running smoothly. I love building relationships with our clients and witnessing their success. We have an excellent team that provides quality personal service and I couldn’t have hand picked a more amazing family to work with. I truly love my “job”!
Hi, I’m Erica Ellis, Chief Editor here at Archangel Ink and owner of Ink Deep Editing. I took a rather circuitous route to becoming an editor via degrees in biology and wildlife biology and jobs as a dolphin trainer, veterinary assistant, sea turtle researcher, wildlife biologist, technical writer/editor (oooh, getting close!), stay-at-home mom, and chiropractic assistant.
Once I finally figured out what I wanted to do when I grew up, I quickly got educated in editing, obtaining a Specialized Certificate in Copyediting from the University of California at San Diego and training in developmental editing through the Editorial Freelancers Association and the Author-Editor Clinic. In addition to my work here at Archangel Ink, I work with private authors, helping them bring their stories to the world.
Hey I’m Tyler Derosier. I primarily focus on digital and physical book design and formatting here at Archangel Ink. I know I know, it’s 2016 and we live in the world of digital books now, but some people still like to have an actual book in their hands. As digital books keep growing, physical books will always have their place. Besides, who doesn’t like that trademark physical book smell?
I have a rich background in Information Technology and after serving some time in the dreaded corporate world as a consultant, I burned myself out. I now focus on freelancing from home as much as I can doing a wide range of nerdy things from web development and design to creating books here at Archangel Ink. In my spare time I like to take my nerdiness to new levels by researching health and nutrition, roasting my own coffee, doing creative photography, and trying to stay above “hipster” status listening to the latest new music.
Hi, I’m Josh Driver. After my Gucci sunglasses modelling contract was cancelled I became involved as a website developer and technical fix it guy at Archangel Ink. Being from New Zealand I’m also currently the sole southern hemisphere representative for Archangel Ink.
I enjoy problem solving and fixing things and it’s awesome being involved with such a great company with great people (except Buck Flogging, the ego on that guy is way out of control!). I also work with Matt on some other cool web projects including QuitN6. When I’m not up to my eyeballs in website stuff and being mistaken for an Australian, I’m busy trying to finish off university and avoiding having to get a real job that involves wearing a suit and tie and getting up before midday.
Greetings! I’m Nichole Kraft, and I’m so excited to be one of Archangel Ink’s proofreaders. I’m also a freelance copyeditor specializing in nonfiction. I love working with words, cooking up amazing vegan food, and doting on my husband and pets (a miniature horse, cat, and rabbit). I hail from a tiny town in southeastern Kansas, just a few miles from where I was born and raised. I’m a country girl through and through, but I love to experience the world through words, food, and friendships.
is rumored to be another author on this site writing under a different pen name. Lies. It’s all lies. Buck hails from the sausage family of Milwaukee. You know, Flogging Sausage. But don’t you go thinking that Buck didn’t earn all of his success just because he’s heir to a world-famous sausage supplier. He can do a lot more than handle a thick sausage. Buck is a skilled internet entrepreneur, dazzling writer with an unrivaled sense of humor (for those with a double-digit IQ), and plays both consultant and overseer to the entire Archangel Ink operation. Don’t let his relentless self-aggrandizement and sexual innuendo fool you, Buck is actually a very compassionate guy that would sacrifice his soul, not for the devil, but for the authors that enlist their trust and livelihood with Archangel Ink. Rest assured that with Buck on the team, each published title will get a sprinkle of Buck’s magic mojo, ensuring its greatness.
I’m Dan Culhane. Narrator here at Archangel Ink. I’m the author of more than 15 books. No. Wait. That’s Matt. I’m a logophile and communications enthusiast. Shoot. That’s Rob. I’m a recovering perfectionist with a passion for psychology – dang it. That’s Kristie. What I do is read aloud. Into a microphone. I channel stories from other people. Which explains my wife asking me why I mumble so much. I don’t have any words of my own. I’ve also verbalized many training, instruction, and sales videos. Valuable subject matter. Like 30 pages of information concerning the glue that holds body side-molding on cars. TV and Radio commercials, on-hold messaging, and more. Things like that. See the books I’ve narrated HERE
Hi I’m Joni Abbott, audiobook narrator here at Archangel Ink. I’m just a girl who figured out she loves people, digs great music from any genre, and talks WAY too much. I put all of that together and got into radio at 17 years of age. Once I started having kiddos, I figured out I had an inner gork (a girl-dork). Once I let her out-of-the-closet, I embraced studying various systems within the body and instead of the typical lust-in-the-dust romance novels next to my bed stand, I kept Anatomy and Physiology volumes. I’m a crunchy Mom (so much so, I am almost crispy) with a radio show (at www.naturalnewsradio.com) who also loves reading…. YOUR books. Doing voiceovers (TV/Radio commercials, intros for shows or YouTube channels, comedy, and audiobooks) is another one of the passions that makes me, me. You can listen to some samples of my audiobook work HERE
Hi I’m Greg Zarcone, one of the talking heads at Archangel Ink by night. By day, I’m an IT Project Manager trapped in a corporate cubicle farm poking my head above the divider like a meerkat every time someone screams “Leftovers in the break-room!” Nothing sucks the soul out of a body quite like florescent lighting. Weird combination, I know. 🙂 A little something for the left brain, a little something for the right. Anyway, Archangel Ink is a big part of the reason I was able to make my escape and I am glad to be here! I am now free to scamper happily across the countryside, recording audio as I go. If the voices in your head lead to paying work, you’re not actually crazy. Pretty much mostly. That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it. Check out the books I’ve narrated HERE
. Don’t look directly at them or you’ll get blinded by all the 5-star reviews.
