I work as an assistant for multiple authors and have done so for many years now. I’ve worked as an author assistant since late 2014. I worked for authors who wrote in the following genres: contemporary romance, science fiction (romance), fantasy (romance), paranormal romance, historical romance, middle grade mystery, cozy mystery and reverse harem. I have experience with a wide variety of tasks. On this page I’ve listed a variety of tasks I can do, but if you need help with anything else you can always ask me. You can email me at lola(at)lolasblogtours(dot)com
At the moment I am accepting recurring work (a set amount of hours per month every month) as well as project work (a set task that I complete).

Once you book any of these services I will email you with more questions and then try to give an estimate of how many hours the work will take so you can confirm that is okay. You can also set a maximum amount of hours you don’t want me to go over. Invoices will be sent once the work is completed or after 2 hours of work, depending on the task.
Please note there is a limit to how many of these I can accept per month, so there might be a wait list. If you’re looking for any other type of service, you can see if that’s something I can do for you. I hold the right to decline any request for these for any reason. Make sure to book these a few weeks in advance when possible.
Author Testimonials about my assistant work
“I love working with Lola! A few years ago, I got fed up with dealing with the Goodreads website and decided that this was a task better suited to someone who knows how it works. I hired Lola to take care of Goodreads for me, and I have never been happier with that decision! She makes sure my account is in good standing, uploads my books, updates blurbs, links, and covers… So many things that I just don’t have the time or patience for. Since we’ve been working together, I’ve also hired her to help with some website work and getting ARCs onto Booksprout when I was trying that out. What I love about Lola is that I can count on her to be on top of things. If I hand a task off to her, she gets it done. I hope that we continue to work together far into the future!”
– S.J. Pajonas
“I hired Lola for both marketing and assistant work, and she’s proven to be efficient, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. Thanks to Lola, I’ve already seen an uptick in exposure for my latest release. Lola is a motivated professional, her marketing ideas are fresh and innovative, and I feel confident handing over any project to her. I highly recommend her services.”
-Susan Furlong –What They Don’t Know and Shattered Justice, A New York Times Top Ten Crime Novel of the Year
“I’ve been working with Lola for several years now and she’s incredibly reliable, honest, and good at what she does, particularly with regard to social media and Good Reads management. I highly recommend her.”
– Mika Lane
“Lola is a fantastic VA. Very communicative, thorough, and on top of things. When you ask her to do something, you can rest assured it will get done. I have very much enjoyed working with Lola!”
– Traci Lovelot
“Lola has been my VA for several years and my life would be a lot more difficult without her. She maintains my author social media accounts and does a tremendous job. I trust her completely. She not only schedules regular posts but also engages with my audience whenever I need her to. I know I can always count on Lola to be there for me and my fans. She picks engaging and entertaining topics that pertain to my brand. When I update her on sales and promos, she always includes them. And most of all, she’s honest. I have a specific budget and she’s often under budget, which is not only greatly appreciated but a huge help. It’s one of the main reason when, at times, I’ve run low on marketing funds, I’ve kept Lola on. I seriously cannot imagine running my author business without her. ”
– Chloe Adler
“I always enjoy and benefit from working with Lola. She’s knowledgeable, organized, dedicated, and a pleasure to deal with. I especially appreciate her reliability. Thanks for everything, Lola!”
– Paula Berinstein

“I asked Lola to write some pitches for me and I was absolutely amazed by the incredible pitches she wrote. She went over and above my expectations and gave me a lot more options to work with. I will definitely be using her services again! Thank you once again for the wonderful services that you offer.”
– Lorraine M.L.M
“Lola is very easy to work with and very knowledgeable and helpful in her suggestions. She gets a lot done in a short time and her communication is excellent. Five star customer service and I have no hesitation in recommending her as a personal assistant. I’m busy thinking up all the jobs I need more help with. 🙂 ”
– Gina Wynn
“I commissioned Lola to write up some Social Media Posts for me and I’m extremely satisfied with her service. I love writing books. But I don’t like writing social media posts so when I found out that Lola was offering this service I was thrilled. I didn’t know what to expect and when I received the document with all the written posts, I was more than pleased.
My Facebook and Twitter posts had dwindled in the past few months but now I’ve resurrected them again. Lola worded the posts in such an enticing way and my posts are getting a lot more engagement than before. They are absolutely beautiful. I’ve now scheduled my tweets and Facebook Posts in advance and can sit back and concentrate on my main writing.
I recommend this service to all authors who could benefit from it. It frees up lots of writing time and you get posts that you can reuse and tweak at your leisure—all at a reasonable cost.
Thanks Lola for offering such a great service.”
