Book Coaching

Big congrats—you’re going to write a book! I can coach you every step of the way from top-level brainstorming to publishing and sending your brave new message out to the world.

Why work with me as your book editor? I’ve been immersed in the world of publishing since 1988—the Stone Age of books created with rubber cement and an X-acto knife—and so have a seasoned perspective on both the processes and social impact of publishing. Over the years, I have edited 200+ books and worked with solo indie writers/publishers as well as traditional houses: Beyond Words Publishing, Book Partners, Collectors Press, Prentice Hall, Addison Wesley, Metamorphous Press, McGraw-Hill, South-Western College Publishing, Crown House Publishing Co., and many more.
