About Me

I have experience in qualitative and quantitative social research, education, creating written materials (both fiction and non-fiction), medical imaging (both X-ray and Nuclear Medicine), the military, web design, and some programming experience. I am also a frequent presenter and panelist at both literary and academic conventions, and professionally format ebooks in both ePub and Kindle formats as well as print layout.

I am also a small publisher as Alliteration Ink, and I am a member of several professional industry organizations.

Client Testimonials

  • Steven Saus has been where you are. He's gone through the steps and has a genuine interest in teaching others to avoid the pitfalls of beginners everywhere. His input can be firm, yet fair. He'll tell you what you need to hear.

    Patrick Tomlinson, author of The Children of A Dead Earth series
  • When I ventured into my first e-book conversion, I dreaded the learning curve. So I was delighted when I found that Steven Saus could handle it for me for a reasonable fee. He was prompt and professional and delivered a trouble-free e-book conversion. I am grateful.

    Alma Alexander, author of Shoes & Ships & Sealing Wax

  • I found Steven Saus on Wikipedia, under "E-book conversion" services. Call it good intuition or damn good luck but Steven replied swiftly to my request and offered the most equitable quote. He answered my novice technical questions with astute professionalism and in simple, easy to grasp terms. His turn-over time was superb and his eye for detail was excellent. I could not have found a better conversion consultant and someone who was genuinely interested in making my book look and feel as close to the real book as possible. Best of all, he was friendly, prompt, and a pleasure to work with. Steven has my highest recommendation!

    Wendy-O Matik (author), Oakland, CA
  • Steve's critiques are always timely and insightful, and cover the range of both grammatical and style elements. In other words, he'll tell you if your t's are crossed and i's are dotted, but he'll also tell you if some aspect of your writing needs improvement, if the perspective shifts are warranted, if the story is too choppy, etc. His critiques are not for the faint of heart, however; Steve is honest and unafraid to point out flaws. Of course, that's what you should want from a critique if you're trying to improve your writing!

    Sarah Hans, editor of Steampunk World and Sidekicks

  • As an author lacking knowledge in converting rich media content into an epub arrangement; I needed to find an expert. Through a great deal of internet searching, I found Steven Saus. Steven did more than his required obligation. He dispatched visual epub and pdf examples engaging straightforward views. He conveyed to me the logic for which my book was not adaptable as an eBook since it is one written in epistolary and rich in pictures. Steven could have taken my money, and delivered an end result that didn't look very "pretty," but he doesn't roll that way. His honesty speaks highly of a person with character, and I would endorse his expertise to anyone. Thank you for the education.
