I love books. I love words. Once upon a time I thought my love affair with books was just about reading them. Then the evolution of books began changing everything in the publishing world - and in mine, too.
My career started in advertising and media, where I spent nearly 10 years, then evolved into publishing where I've been since 2009. In providing publishing services, I've had the privilege of working on hundreds of books and ebooks and assisting dozens of authors and small publishers through the publishing process. I've followed the trends in self-publishing and the developments in ebooks - and enjoyed every minute of it.
Print book or PDF for web distribution - I love both because of all the design possibilities! Kindle file or epub - I love the challenge of HTML and knowing that ebooks can (and should) be beautiful too! Most of all, I love helping people create books, love helping people share their ideas, stories, lives in print - actual AND virtual - and I'd love to help you.
Self-publishing can be a confusing landscape. Get help from someone familiar with the terrain - an advocate and guide for turning your manuscript into a real, live book!
