Several people have inquired recently about self-publishing. Why self-publish instead of working with an established distribution channel is a common question. The truth is that I do not want to relinquish control over my creative product. It's really hard work--self-publishing means you write, hire editors, perform marketing functions and deal with misprints (yep. it happens). Yes, you can hire freelancers or others to help you. But at the end of the day...you have COMPLETE control over the finished product.

Does your company website put its best foot forward? If your website does not convert sales, collect donations, book your service, or convince subscribers to sign up, you might need to reconsider the language. I can help analyze your service offerings, product descriptions, and call-to-action verbiage to determine why. Once diagnosed, I can help you resolve these issues.

A word about the Rocco the Brave Toy Fox Terrier Tales

Years after writing the first Rocco stories in a spiral notebook, I finally decided to bring the series to life.

My husband encouraged me to do this for the past several years. I work full-time as a freelance writer and editor, but I primarily “ghostwrite” for other authors. I finally decided to step out and publish my children’s stories.

I wrote the first book about Rocco (yes, he is a real toy fox terrier) when my stepdaughter, Jessica, was very young. That first story was about coping with bullies. Rocco used courage to defeat the bullies and stand up for himself.

Thinking about it, there are so many skills children don’t learn in school any longer--writing in cursive and reading a map spring to mind. But there are other, more important tools children need for success--and those abstract concepts are more challenging for parents and teachers to demonstrate today. Principles like kindness, courage, cooperation seem to be disappearing.
