Archangel Ink was created by authors, for authors.
Meet the team that can make your book launch a success!
The world of publishing has changed dramatically in recent years. The growth of self-publishing, and the commensurate explosion of resources designed to serve emerging authors, has shifted the industry’s center of gravity toward authors and independent publishers.
Entrepreneurs and thought leaders from any industry now have the ability to leverage their knowledge and share their ideas with the world. Originally founded in 2012 by Rob Archangel and Matt Stone, Archangel Ink was created to offer professionals the opportunity to navigate the self-publishing process as painlessly as possible. Rob has always been passionate about writing and communication. He worked as an assistant to the publisher of the longest running permaculture journal in North America and developed an appreciation for the power of the published word.
Working with Archangel Ink gives authors a wealth of options under one roof: from cover design and editing to ghostwriting and audiobook production. The process is designed to allow content creators to focus on their specific area of genius while the publishing of their book is handled with efficiency and professionalism.
Archangel Ink Team Members
Archangel Ink was created to provide the quality, professionalism and in-house services of a large publisher, while maintaining the ease and individualized service of a self-publisher.
Rob Archangel – Owner, Self-Publishing Consultant and Book Launch Strategist
Rob Archangel here, logophile, communication enthusiast and self-publisher. My goal is to help authors and entrepreneurs navigate the self-publishing landscape as painlessly as possible so they can share their story and build their brand. For several years, I worked as assistant to the publisher of the longest running permaculture journal in North America, and came to appreciate the power of the published word. In 2012, I entered into the world of digital ebooks, print-on-demand paperbacks, and audiobooks and haven’t looked back. Realizing a knack and a passion for the process, I founded Archangel Ink to help clients more effectively reach their audience. From cover design and editing, to audiobook production and ghostwriting, we provide support and let authors and professionals focus on what they do best, while we add efficiency and professionalism to the rest of the process.
Kristie – Executive Coordinator & Client Specialist
I’m Kristie, the Executive Coordinator and Client Specialist here at Archangel Ink. I handle the day-to-day operations and project flow between client and team at all stages of production. This requires a special skill-set (and sanity) with a health dose of OCD, and lots of patience. Fun facts: I’m an INTJ, a mom to three adult sons, mimi to two granddaughters, a wife to a traveling salesman, and a homemaker with a passion for coffee, theology, music, and mid-century culture. My broad background in billing/collections, insurance credentialing, real estate finance, sales, telecommunications, and more, give me the edge needed to keep things running smoothly (most of the time!). I love building relationships with our clients and helping guide them toward their personal vision of success. It’s so rewarding to witness their reaction to the finished book files! I’m deeply grateful and proud to work with such an amazing team that provides a rare quality of service in both production and client relations.
Tyler Derosier – Sr. Graphics, Website, and Book Designer
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 2023 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.
Erica Ellis – Chief Editor
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.
Greg Zarcone – Voice Talent
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.
