a new author's guide to navigating the path from manuscript to marketing
Meet your guides
Hi I’m Donna! I am a two-time author, veteran, nurse, mom, wife, and lover of books!
I have been where you are…and possibly in a worse position. The first time I self-published I co-authored the book. The details are irrelevant, but the end result was I was left on my own to pay for and get the book to print. I made one mistake after another. However, I was fortunate to have people step in my path to help get me to the finish line.
My second time I was the sole author and a bit more seasoned. There were still things I learned and there were a few chaotic parts, but it went MUCH smoother.
Needless to say, I am adept at the pitfalls of self publishing.
After all was said and done, and I had a moment to reflect, one thing struck me. In the “wild west” of self publishing, there was an enormous gap…the educational piece. I felt if we had a team that not only provided services, but EDUCATED the author, they would have a safe place to learn and do it on their own the next time.
A few unexpected conversations with Glee and Kevin and the next thing I know, we have a team of five, fully believing in this mission, and eager to get it off the ground.
I cannot wait to work with you. I want my lessons to become your successes.
I will help you create a digital space where your readers can learn about who you are, the message you have to share or story you have to tell, and a way for them to discover where and how to obtain their own precious copy of your work.
