Publishing

Our publishing venture began in 2014 and is going strong with the independently published, award-winning Circle of Nine series. To succeed in the ever-changing publishing world, we learned early that you must stay informed and constantly educate yourself on what’s new and different. We’ll share in-depth and up-to-date industry advice with you, whether your goal is to independently or traditionally publish.

As your self-publishing coach, we can provide a draft-to-publication checklist and personal guidance to help you with the many steps and decisions on the way to your book release. Whether you need full-service assistance or advice with specific projects, we can help you survive the sometimes-stressful publication process and succeed in a competitive environment.
