Why should our community members hire you?
My focus is on supporting authors who want two things: to publish the most professional book possible and to avoid the overwhelm that comes from trying to navigate the publishing process. Authors want to know the “right” way to publish, but it’s not a one-size-fits-all business. With my 20+ years of experience, I can help them understand their options and publish a book they are proud to share with the world.
What do you enjoy about working with nonfiction authors?
My clients are often first-time authors, so walking with them through the process and providing the clarity and creativity that transforms their manuscript into a book is so rewarding. By providing answers to questions they don’t even know they have yet, I allow them to enjoy the process, rather than be frustrated by it. And in many cases, I am helping them achieve a bucket-list dream, and it’s such an honor to be a part of their publishing journey.
What is the origin of your business? When did your company begin and why?
I started as a freelance graphic designer in 1990, and several years later, started working with a film industry publisher designing their trade books. That relationship led to work with other publishers, and within a few years, self-publishing began to take off, so I was well-poised to service authors directly.
What piece of advice would you like to offer authors?
I encourage authors to commit to publishing a bookstore-quality book and to do that by collaborating with experienced professionals who are committed to the same goal. Focus on providing an exceptional reading experience every step of the way.
