Nurturing Your BIG Ideas - Your Developmental Editor and Book Coach
ready to help you write that book this year.
I'm a passionate writer and former book publisher who became a developmental editor and book coach when I discovered so many women who 'wanted to write a book' but didn't think they could.
Here's the truth - whoever you are, you CAN write that BOOK. You SHOULD write that BOOK. I will be your GUIDE and NURTURE you every step of the way - personally and PROFESSIONALLY.
And I have a talented, professional team behind me - for those little parts I don't do on my own.
Are you ready?
Look, you won't find anyone more passionate and committed to helping you create a product you can be proud of. I know what it's like to have that big book idea, and wonder, "Who am I to think I can write a book?"
I was there, not so long ago. Yes, I am a consummate writer, have been since grade school. But writing a book that will help other professionals be successful - who the heck and I to think I can do that? Read on...
BELIEVE IN IT...
Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine, or believe, I would be Woman of the Year for anything, anywhere, at any time! And then I was.
Woman of the Year, 2015
The picture from 2015 is from the night I was honored - awarded - the title Woman of the Year in the Pet Industry Network.
I will never forget it. I may have to write a book about it, someday.
I didn't plan on being woman of the year. But, I was. I didn't have a speech ready. I looked around the room when they called my name, and finally, my daughter gave me a nudge and said, "That's you. They're calling your name."
I didn't believe it! And that proved, later on, to be silly of me. Because I deserved it. I had built something wonderful in the pet space (BlogPaws, a pet influencer community that was acquired by a Fortune 500 company), with a lot of help, of course, and I had become a person to know, in that space. I was just too lost in it to believe I would win an award for it!
That award will forever be the most valuable thing to talk about on my resume, in public speaking, or anywhere else I share my story.
Why do I mention this here?
Because it taught me to believe in myself and in my leadership skills. It helped move me from inaction to action. Understand, I had already written a successful book, and been the founder of a successful publishing business, but this - an award announcing I was Woman of the Year - it opened my eyes to realizing I had the talent, the magic, and the know-how to be whatever I chose to be, from that moment forward.
You don't need an award to finally believe in yourself. You have me. I believe in you. I know there is talent and magic in you. I know there is a story to tell. I can nurture you gently and purposefully, to get that story out. It's a process. Simple and sincere, but still a process.
The best way to build it, is to get started right now. Email me and we'll have a quick call together. A Zoom. Or just a call, whatever you prefer. I'll send you my Questionnaire, to get better acquainted with your big book idea, and we'll go over it together to see what the next step should be.
Here's how building it works: you write, I edit and make comments, you make corrections, we talk it over, and we move on to the next chapter. Until the book is done.
It's more than that, of course. In fact, Download BookWriting-AShortOutline- to see all the steps involved in building your book. Yes, we cover them all. Some more deeply than others, but all of them are important to your new book as a product you can believe in and be proud to share with the world.
Oh, yes, there's an eBook on marketing, too.
Nurturing Big Ideas is here to mentor you, to guide you, to teach you how to get from big idea to published book to becoming "the author of".
Becoming is more than putting words to paper, until a book forms. It's fully embracing the believe and build process, until you become that person - the person who wrote the book that changed the world.
