Vinnie Kinsella

Senior Designer, Ebook Conversion Specialist, and Publication Consultant

Vinnie’s love for book creation began in the second grade, when he worked with his fellow students to write and illustrate a story about the adventures of an ice-cream-loving giraffe. He’s been a publishing professional since 2006, working as a writer, editor, book designer, publisher, workshop presenter, and college instructor. He currently uses his broad knowledge of the publishing industry to assist and educate independent authors and publishers. He is the author of A Little Bit of Advice for Self-Publishers, and he curated and published Fashionably Late: Gay, Bi, and Trans Men Who Came Out Later in Life. Vinnie lives in Portland, Oregon, where he can often be found sitting in a coffee shop with a book in one hand and a cappuccino in the other. You can see examples of his design work here.
