"I don't know what to do."
That's what Barbie wrote when she contacted me about her book.
She'd been working on her memoir for years. The writing was done and she wanted to move forward, to publish the book, but she had so many questions.
Should she find someone to edit the book? Where could she get a cover design? And what about the inside?
She had no idea where to begin.
Writing a book is a huge accomplishment. Getting it into book form and publishing it is another.
Together we reviewed her manuscript, edited and organized what she'd written, talked about titles, cover designs ... and how and where to get it published.
As we worked through the project, Barbie often thanked me for my guidance and told me she was learning so much about the process.
I was learning, too. Learning about how hard it can be for writers to share their work, to hand it or and trust things will work out.
After Barbie's book was published, she sent me a note.
"Thank you, thank you, thank you. You have been a dream to work with. I am so happy with my book. I could NEVER have done it without you."
