Author and Beyond
Ready to publish your book?
...holding your published book in your hand in 2021.
You will hand your book to your clients, family and friends.
Bloggers will rave about your book to their followers.
Most importantly, you'll share your unique message with the world.
We're not just publishing a book, we're taking a journey.
It's like walking a momentous trail, like the El Camino. You never know what will unfold along the way. You're not sure if you can do it.
You meet a new aspect of yourself around every corner.
Will it be exciting?
Will it be rewarding?
Will we be there with you along the way?
And so will our small community.
You walk with strangers who become family.
And at the end of the road, you find yourself and your new family in a cafe somewhere sipping coffee (or elixirs) and sharing stories.
What are you waiting for?
"If you are looking for an Angel to help you with your book – Stephanie is it!
As a new author I have truly enjoyed and greatly benefitted from working with Stephanie. The process and steps to getting me to my goal were laid out very clearly, making the journey seem manageable and gave me the perspective I needed. Every check in we did was always relevant to where I was in the process, as Stephanie was able to sense and anticipate where I was and what would be next. I highly recommend working with Stephanie, as you will receive the much needed guidance and support!"

The range of topics we cover include, but are not limited to:

- book back cover copy
- testimonials and support for your book
- crowdfunding campaign creation

We will discuss the best fit for your book and needs.
If, like us, sustainability and environmental stewardship are your passion, we explore publishing with the smallest footprint in mind.
As well as partnerships like the one I have with TreeEra, where Stephanie pays them to plant a tree for every print copy sold of her Anna children's book series.
You know the cost of the program. What about the costs of publishing?
There are many variables depending on how you publish your book.
Costs may include, but not be limited to: editing, photography, cover design, interior design/formatting, printing, launch and copyright registration. There is a wide range of pricing in these services, which allows you to set your budget and find the services that meet it.
Nina Heikkila, author of Leaving the Matrix, was able to connect with an interior design/formatter who did the work for free! That was a huge savings for Nina.
We encourage you to source from your networks and find services that fit within your budget. Don't worry, we'll walk through your budget and real costs during our kick-off. Of course, this is also why we cover crowdfunding during the program: to assist you in recovering your self-publishing investment while promoting your upcoming book to the public.
