Occasionally I get asked, “How did you get so interested in books?”
I guess it’s always been in my blood. As a child, I remember dreaming about living in a castle which had a floor-to-ceiling library in one of the turrets. I can still see the room in my mind and the vast green countryside out the stone window. After college, I took jobs as they appeared – not really having a plan – but grateful that I was always able to work in an artistic, creative environment. Looking back, I learned a lot in each job I had – valuable communication, design, branding, and printing skills – and can clearly see the path which led to where I am now. Once I let go of the job/career I really did not like, all-the-more books just started showing up.
One of our clients recently called me the “Book Doula” . . . because I help people “birth” books. Not a bad destiny to have.
No matter where you are on your path to publishing . . . REACH OUT . . . I can help. And I promise to not recommend using brass brads to bind your book! (Do they even still make those?!)
