    The conversation lights up whenever I tell someone I’m a book creation coach. Usually I hear, “I’ve often thought about writing a book,” and even more often, “I’ve been told I should write a book.” As we chat, questions come up about the whole writing/self-publishing world and it’s fun to give my perspective on the who, when and how books come to be published.

    It hardly seems possible that 10 years have passed since I began assisting authors–one of the great joys of my life.
