Tips for Writing and Self-Publishing


“What a pleasure it is to have full control over the publishing process! Once I had my cover and my edited manuscript in hand, Debra showed me–in very clear, easy terms–how to get my novel onto multiple platforms in a matter of days. Best of all, there’s no middleman taking their cut of my hard-earned royalties.


I subsequently used Debra’s guidance to reissue my debut novel without a publisher. Now in its second edition.

“I had the pleasure of working with Deb to turn my paperback book, Hoopspeak, into an Ebook. Deb is an excellent resource armed with her knowledge of self-publishing and formatting software. As a new author, I had no idea how to convert my paperback into an Ebook. Deb told me what to do to prep the document and then she transformed it. Together, we made a few adjustments, and within a couple of hours, I had an Ebook ready for distribution. Deb is passionate about helping authors and has the knowledge of the self-publishing process to back it up.

I chose to self-publish because I wanted to keep 40-60% of my book sales as royalties vs 10% with traditional publishing. It is worth it to use Deb’s services so you can make more money on your book. When I write my next book, I will not hesitate to go to Deb for guidance!”
