I only had a vague idea about branding myself as a dystopian author. After a brainstorming session with Karina, she created an identity and brand for me that I wouldn’t have ever considered. Karina is very easy to work with. She is very receptive to an author’s input and thoroughly explains how all the elements of the brand design work together.
Karina is an extremely talented designer she creates beautiful logos and social media banners that are not only original but beautiful as well
I’m very happy with the brand she created for me and I’d highly recommend her services.

Author Assist has been instrumental in finding my author brand and giving guidance on the best way to position my books.
Please let me introduce myself I am Martin Karl Gardiner artist-illustrator and now the author of the children’s book the Little Ones’ Great Adventure.
I am new to the world of Publishing and have no idea so when I’m was approached by an American publishing company and they offered me the world I was so naive and ignorant I just accepted, and in time I noticed that I am just been ripped off because there was no help how to get in touch with and when I did want help wanted hundreds off me each time I talk to them.
I was stuck in a dark place with no way out trying to get my book noticed by the world. By myself, I was getting nowhere and Karina just happened to love my work and asked me to be on her podcast. After this, a door opened and light came in. This young lady has done everything for me. She got the rights back for my book, she has taken my book apart page by page and edited it so that it actually makes sense and is suitable for children to read. She’s getting it formatted and edited and republished for me. A great weight had lifted off my shoulder. What this lady has done for me is beyond words. I can not express how I feel at this moment.
I can only tell you that if you need any help with your book get in touch with Karina. She’ll touch your book and transform it into gold. The knowledge and skill of this lady are phenomenal so please get in touch. Karina has taken me out of a very dark hole and shown me the light.
Hopefully, my book will start selling now with all the help that Karina has done for me. I will certainly be using this lady again and on all further books.
I can not thank Karina enough. The lady is a godsend.
Martin Gardiner – The Little Ones’ Great Adventure
If you need someone to help you as an author as well as promote your book or books, this is who you should use. Karina is FANTASTIC at what she does and though she lives on an island off Greece, she is easily accessible and easy to work with and frankly makes a great friend. Then Karina went about fixing up my Facebook as well as making me an author’s page on Facebook as well as a web presence. She’s working now on getting me reviews for the books as well as interviews on radio and podcasts. Seriously, I can’t think of anyone that could do this better than Karina!!!

Karina Kantas, aside from being a fine author in her own right, is an energetic and diligent marketeer. I’d recommend her for any author who wants to ‘offload’ social media and book marketing to a seasoned expert
Author of The Life After Life Chronicles
“Karina is wonderful and a delight to work with. I had requested a radio ad, book trailers and narration from Karina and she definitely delivers. Her work is phenomenal. I even had her read a narration for my book trailer and do the voice over for my radio ad. Her British accent and pronunciation make everything sound very polished. Her creative side in designing my ads make them eye-catching and entertaining. She does everything you ask plus more. She realizes time is of the essence and her sense of urgency has your product there before you know it. I enjoy working with Karina and will continue working with her to help publicize my children’s book series, Les Cinq Eiffels/The Five Eiffels.”
What can I say about Karina Kantas? Let me count the ways…Karina is a lovely woman, who is incredibly talented and hard-working. Her assistance is always prompt and professional. She never flags, is always eager to help with anything, and will listen to every suggestion from my crazy brain. Although I must admit, I don’t get away with every idea because she is not afraid to shoot down something that won’t work. She’s a multi-tasker and can do voice-overs, book trailers, book covers, graphics for social media, interviews, newsletters, ads, promotions, postings…you name it, she will do, and do well. And what she currently doesn’t do, she will find a way to do it. Did I mention she’s an incredible, hard-working woman? Oh, yes, I did. Her voice-overs are beautifully done and her interviews are a ton of fun to do. She’s constantly trying to find new and inventive ways to promote your work and is indefatigable in her efforts. She’s very patient. Very patient. And she is an enthusiastic cheerleader, which keeps me going in down moments. Keeps me on my toes, too. Through our years of working together (already years?), I have seen my readership increase, my sales go up, and my horizon expands worldwide. More importantly, I’ve also gained a trusted friend. What else can I say about Karina except, you won’t go wrong if you chose to contact her? Well, that. Exactly that.

I enjoyed working with Karina during this month. She helped me promote my book and manage my social media. This allowed me time to create more awesome content, as she took half the load off. She is very helpful and resourceful. I highly recommend her for new (or any) indie authors, I need of assistance in launching their books.

I have really appreciated the support Karina has given me through her Author Assist program. She delivers what she promises and offers a true value-for-money service. So I always feel comfortable going to her for advice, and would not hesitate to recommend her to other new authors.

I’m happy to take a few moments to share my thoughts about my friend and personal assistant, Karina Kantas. Over the past 4 or maybe 5 years, she has contributed so much to getting the word out about my Beta-Earth Chronicles series.
To start with, every month she shares news about my books using social media, mainly Facebook. She edits and distributes my newsletter. She has interviewed me twice on her various online radio shows. She has contributed or arranged most of the videos, especially the readings, on my YouTube channel. She has plugged my books at a number of sites and blogs over the years, especially book magnet promos. She has arranged interviews and reviews for me.
That’s just the headlines. We frequently talk via Zoom where she offers me guidance and inspiration to keep going, and keep writing.
Oh, she has a warm and embracing singing voice as well.
So if you’re looking for an honest, dependable, knowledgeable PA, I’d say give Karina a try. She’s a trooper and absolutely indispensable for my book marketing and promotions.

My wife Jackie and I met KK through the infamous Facebook page of EE, ‘Electric Eclectic.’
We chatted for a while, and she told us some of the amazing things she could do for us as publishers and full-time authors. The day you find out about KK is the day you find out ALL you were missing as a book promoter. There is just so much knowledge in the area of marketing and promotion she can assist you with that you never even knew existed. Our books immediately began to skyrocket towards the top of the Amazon Ranking List, and our company
began to be noticed worldwide through other channels. If you are stalled, need a boost in your writing career, or just want to promote a novel or two, KK can get it done. One of the great things about Author Assist is that you can keep writing, knowing that she is out there on the other side, promoting and marketing your hard work, so you don’t have to. It is one less thing to worry about while you are on your way to becoming the most celebrated author you can be.

I’ve used a few of Karina’s services now. Promotions for my book to proofreading and editing a personal statement (which got me the interview which got me the job.)
Would highly recommend Karina.

Karina Kantas is a terrific VA. She’s dedicated, quite knowledgeable, and hard-working. Her talents are multifaceted. She creates graphics, records narrations, and launches marketing campaigns. The best thing that happened to my writing career was to connect with her.
Award-winning, multi-genre author
I’ve been using Karina as a Virtual Assistant for over 3 years. She is great to work with. Nothing is too much trouble and her advice to me has been invaluable.
She has also made me some great trailers and teasers.
So if you are looking for help, Karina is the one who will do an excellent job!
Karina is a pleasure to work with. I’ve used many of her services and she’s given me the knowledge and the know-how to try many things myself. You won’t be disappointed, try her.’

I met KKantas through one of her advertisements, posted on Facebook, offering Marketing services to improve the presence of my independently published ebooks on social media.
I was impressed by her apparent skills, subsequently learning that they had been developed through a personal experience of over twenty years of writing and promoting her own books.
As well as being an accomplished author, KKantas is also a marketer of distinction. She has a deep instinct for highly effective presentation of all aspects of an ebook and she understands and can employ social media better than most.
She worked with me for one month and an extra week, and during that time she totally revised the presentation of my books. She showed me how to understand and use all the social platforms, and now I am able to self-market with confidence, and I think with a certain degree of skill.
KKantas is a thoroughly honest and trustworthy person, and the quality of her work and her deep commitment to her client are outstanding. Engaging her as my virtual assistant was one of the best decisions I have made.
I shall re-engage KKantas from time to time, and I now count her as a colleague and friend.
I most highly recommend KKantas
