How do you support the indie author community? Are you offering any services for writers? Two questions that I gladly answer with YES.

After being a member of the indie writer community for over three and a half years, I’m more than happy to support fellow authors. I know that many authors are mainly writers and not necessarily also graphic designers, illustrators, or PR and social media specialist.

Not only do I offer promotion in my online magazine Read My Mind, I also support authors with my design skills. My online magazine Read My Mind is also available in print. It is out three times a year (March, July, November). Authors can promote their books in my magazine for a reasonable price. I also feature guest bloggers/authors from time to time and offer personalized interviews and reviews.

I know from my own experience that many companies offer services for authors, but their prices are cost prohibitive. I’m not one of them because I’m one of you. I’m a self-published author. I know how hard it is to attain book sales. That’s why I offer fair prices for my design and promotion services.

I design book: covers, illustrations, banners, merchandising, catalogs, bookmarks, and social media graphic posts. For more information please
download my writer services file, and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to email me. I’m more than happy to help and advise you with your book publication and promotion.

Bunny & Turtle ebook is available!


Dear Blog visitor, summer is around the corner. I hope you are doing well and enjoying spring. My latest ebook “Bunny & Turtle, snob & shallow verses smart & slow!” was released in April. The print version with colorful illustrations will be available soon. We are still working on the images. So stay tuned….
While my other new book “Leo & Mousi, Refugees Unwanted!” is all about friendship and kindness, the story of “Bunny & Turtle” is about honesty and integrity. Unfortunately too many people make their way through life by fooling others with lies and cheats. Fortunately you can fool yourself and others only for a while, because lies don’t travel far. That’s a hard lesson that bunny will learn the hard way.
Even though these two characters have nothing in common, they do have the same goal. Two successful self-published authors, a turtle from Rome and a bunny from Napoli are competing at a writing contest in Florence! The winning prize is a publishing contract and a movie deal. Who is going to win the contest? The hard-working and honest turtle or the lazy charlatan bunny?
Bunny & Turtle is a timeless story with meaningful, educational, and inspiring messages for children and adults about honesty, integrity, and self-respect! 

Enjoy the read and dont forget honesty is the key to happiness! :-)

In 2017 the first three issues had over 150 000 readers. That’s why I have decided to publish an online magazine with the best of Lily Amis. These have been the most visited articles and interviews. It includes interviews with my beautiful and talented mum designer Sima, British actor Kevin Leslie, Welsh singer James Kennedy and articles like “What makes you think you are an author?” or “From Book to Audiobook”, “The true story behind Adidas and Puma” and much much more… I hope you enjoy the read.

Leo & Mousi, Refugees Unwanted!

Leo & Mousi, Refugees Unwanted is an educational, eye-opening, timeless story that connects with people of all ages. Inspired by the refugee crises in Europe that was created by greed for power by so-called modern western countries and has destroyed millions of innocent’s life’s and countries. Too many people lost everything they had and loved to become war refugees! A painful journey that leads to a future in misery and uncertainty.

The story of the little refugee mouse, Tobi, tells us that we should never judge anyone by their size, race, and looks! Because there is a little mouse in every mighty Leo and a mighty Leo in every little mouse. Never underestimate anyone! Treat everyone with kindness, understanding, respect and love.
The symbolic meaning behind “Leo & Mousi”
If you have read the memoirs, Destination: Freedom and Definition of Freedom, you don’t need an explanation/translation for this deeply meaningful story. You will figure everything out and get the message between the lines. 
This story is inspired by the memoir Destination: Freedom. The little helpless mouse, immigrating to a new forest, is how the author, Lily, sees herself and her mum, Sima, moving to a new country in Europe as war-refugees. The arrogant, selfish, power-hungry, judgmental, and unfriendly Leo represents the European countries and their way of treating refugees with rejection and disrespect.
Mousi’s desperate desire for acceptance and tolerance, a circle of loving friends and the feeling of belonging somewhere and of being integrated, is what many refugees/immigrants feel and struggle with. Some struggle just for a while, others for their entire life. But, as they say, there is always light at the end of the tunnel and this story, with a happy ending, is a good lesson to never give up on hope, faith, dreams, goals, wishes, and desires, despite the challenging obstacles, of destiny and our selfish, elbow-society!
