Why so happy?


Learn to self-publish your bookAlong with the release of my new book, The Self-Publishing Roadmap, I am launching a new business! The Happy Self-Publisher helps writers become authors and aspiring writers to put their thoughts on the page through workshops and one-on-one coaching.

Why so happy, you ask? Because writing a book is trans-formative experience and I get to help writers find the joy, satisfaction, and sense of accomplishment that comes with it. I have the privilege of helping people live their dreams and find the courage to put their name on the line. How cool is that?

With that, I am moving my blog to The Happy Self-Publisher website. Please join me there to continue the conversation about writing, self-publishing, and book marketing with tips and resources to help make the most of your self-publishing journey. Make sure you subscribe so you don’t miss a thing! I hope to see you there.


It Keeps Getting Better


In my last post, I announced the release of my second book, The Self-Publishing Roadmap. To make it even better, I found my book has been selected as one of Amazon’s Best Books of 2014!

The Self-Publishing Roadmap

The Self-Publishing Roadmap


How to self-publish a bookWoooooo! It was a year and a half in the making. Lots of coffee and trips to Panera. Writing and editing and editing and editing…. I am so excited! My first book signing was at Delaware Authors Day in Lewes, DE with more to follow.

After I wrote my first book, The Almost Perfect Birthday Party, people asked me about my self-publishing journey. I began to write a few notes, which turned into a few pages until I discovered that I had written a book. It has been a year full of research and discovery. Now, I embark on the second phase of the process with a book launch and promotion.

Here is a brief description of what you will experience with this book:

Whether you are a business professional looking to brand yourself as an expert in your field, a first-time novelist dreaming of seeing your name in print, or someone who wants to hand down a treasured family history, The Self-Publishing Roadmap will guide you through each step of the process. This book is designed for those who are new to the self-publishing world in an easy-to-follow format with numerous resources to help you on your journey. The time has never been better to tell your story.

In the days and weeks to follow, I’ll post more writing, publishing, and book marketing tips to help you along your way, too. Feel free to ask questions and join the discussion. I would love feedback on the book. Please leave your reviews on Amazon.
