"Ann, my characters thank you. They were probably jumping for
joy when I found you. You know exactly what you're doing,
and I consider it a privilege working with you." Tanna Marie Angers
My specialty service is coaching New Authors who are unfamiliar with the publishing process. Ask yourself these key questions:
- Do I pursue the traditional publishing path or the self publishing route?
- What is the difference?
- What are their publishing guidelines?
- What markets should I apply to?
- What market does my project fit into?
- What do I have to know, do, be ready for, understand and decide before I publish, during the process, and when I am ready to market and promote my finished project?
- What about a web site?
I can, and will, coach you through the channels of the publishing process, no matter which course you choose. Review our "New Authors" section for more information. Coaching consultation and editing fees are based on genre, manuscript word count, work required, and the time involved.
NEW SERVICE - Are you an author who "just wants to write" and not be distracted by the labours of collecting quotes and details for production of your book? If so, we have experience and resources to do this on your behalf. You maintain control over all final decisions without having to stop writing to do the behind-the-scenes work.
As a published author, I wrote a collection of children's books, and a variety of business documents. As an English Assistance and ESL tutor, I have instructed editing skills courses for Delta Continuing Education, and have been a writing skills instructor for private organizations. I was under contract for fifteen years with Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Richmond, BC campus, working in the Adult Learning Center tutoring ESL students and those wishing to upgrade Grade Twelve and University course marks. I am a co-founder of a writer's support group in Delta, BC.
