Not only do I have 30+ years of experience in the publishing industry, but I am an author. I have nine published books with four different publishers, and I have been on hundreds of shows (for a partial list of the hundreds of thousands of people I have reached, feel free to check out my media credentials).
Have you always dreamed of publishing a book?
Everyone has a story to tell. Some people decide to put theirs down in writing. If this is you, you have come to the right place! I have over 30 years experience in the book publishing industry, including acquisitions, product development, editing and proofreading, marketing and publicity, and sales. I consider handling a person’s book an honor and want to help you get your message out!
If you have a book idea and/or manuscript, contact me today! I welcome the opportunity to confidentially discuss your project and identify the next steps to getting you published and helping your dream come true.
Product Development & Coaching
I know how ideas can get stalled in the developmental stages. I come along side of you to answer critical questions regarding the intended audience and purpose of the product. I then assist you with product content (what should be included, what should be left out), flow, format, and order.
Once the insides of the product are on the right course, I will guide you toward the right title and cover to convey the correct message to the proper audience. A book’s title, subtitle, cover, and packaging are paramount for its success.
I will ensure your book gets seen and purchased.
- Book coaching $180/hour in office; $250/hr on site
- Book review $500 for small or children’s books (two weeks)
- Book review $750 for medium-sized manuscripts (four weeks)
- Book review $1,000 for larger-sized projects (six weeks)
All prices and timelines subject to change based upon scope and complexity.
Even those who write well can use a little coaching to improve their work. I am a master at coaching on how to write better. Although many writers don’t put the extra effort in, a noticeable difference is seen when sentences are active rather than passive. I will help you avoid empty words and delete redundant phrases while maintaining your unique voice within your project.
Let me help you enhance your writing skills and stay focused and motivated with your book!
- $3,500 comprehensive edit for a small book
- $5,500 comprehensive edit for a medium-sized book

For those who wish to submit their manuscripts to publishing companies for consideration, I can guide you through the pitch proposal and make recommendations for how to get published.

Once your book is out, you will have the opportunity to promote it via radio, TV, blog talks, and podcasts. You have a short amount of time to establish yourself as the authority and gain the trust and respect of your audience. Your sales depend upon it, and you don’t want to blow any free publicity.
