A bit about me … otherwise known by my married name, Liz Dexter, I’m an editor, proofreader, localiser and transcriber. I set up my business, Libro (very much part time) in August 2009 (and I launched this website on Libro’s fifth birthday!). When I went full time, I realised that there weren’t many resources out there for the cautious, risk-averse and perhaps older entrepreneur, so I blogged about my experiences, then turned that into a book. I’d already put together one book about how I lowered my high cholesterol naturally, so I knew something about the process, and I have gone on from there, learning as I’ve gone, and have written more books and guides. You’ll find pages on here in the Read My Books section about each book, including links for how to buy them from Amazon and non-Amazon suppliers.
In the rest of my life, I’m a keen gym-goer, I run and I volunteer helping community organisations with their social media. I read a lot (even though I edit a lot) and am doing some academic research at the same time.
I’m an indie publisher: I decided to go down the self-published route, while maintaining the high quality and values that I’d expect from any book I read. I am passionate about helping other people with their businesses, so I’ve kept the prices as low as I can and provided extras on my website: I’m never going to expect my readers to pay extra for additional material that I should be able to provide them for the cost of the book, and would rather give away free information than rip people off!
