“Writing is the only thing that, when I do it, I don’t feel like I should be doing something else.” —Gloria Steinam
Just imagine, you walk into a bookstore, perusing your favorite section, when you see your book prominently displayed. There it is, your name in lights, so to speak. The person next to you plucks a copy from the shelf, smiles and takes it to the register. Welcome to the world of ear-to-ear grins!
If you’re like me, you have a passion for writing, but you think that scenario is just a pipe dream. The odds are stacked against you, bookstores close all the time, publishers are swamped with submissions and agents send out form rejections as if they were ticker tape. Besides, there’s never enough time to write a whole book, much less get one published.
I’m here to tell you, if you can dream it, you can make it happen. That was my dream 20 years ago. That became my book on the shelf. And that was my joy when a total stranger bought my book.
You’re probably like me and think you can do it by yourself. It didn’t bode well for me when I put my daughter’s crib together and had enough leftover parts to build an end table. Or when I thought I could rewire the ceiling lights and blew myself off a ladder. Everyone needs a helping hand, especially when it comes to one of the loneliest but most satisfying endeavors in the world – writing. You have a story to tell, a song to sing, a poem to inspire. But how do you translate those thoughts, desires, and passions to the written page? I’ve been there. I know what you’re going through. You have a dream, and you just need the right person to guide you along the way.
I’ve published over 17 books in multiple genres during the past 7 years with traditional publishing houses like Kensington Publishing (Pinnacle and Lyrical Press), Random House, Amazon, Severed Press and so many more. I’m also experienced with the unique world of self-publishing, creating my own imprint. I want to help you so your road to success is shorter than my own and even more rewarding.
