I’ve been fighting doing this as just a testimonial post. I wanted to find a way to make it and informative and useful post for you guys as reqders, because that is really what this is all about.
I’m a writer and I like to think that I can write anything and make it what I want it to be. I’m really struggling with this though. I dont want it to be a bragging point. I’m extremely proud of this though.
A really good friend of mine, Alana Haase, is also an author. She’s written and published several books already, including a short story called Webs that I did the edits for and she was extremely pleased with. Its a powerful little story and the proceeds from sales of it are donated to domestic violence awareness. She’s also a strong advocate for child support enforcement. She is dynamite in a small package and I adore her, but even if she weren’t, you should check her out.
She recently published a new book called Bag Limit. Of course, she came to me for the edits again and we worked through all of that, but then she came to me again.
She ran into issues, and being a full-time nurse, she was struggling to find the time and the energy to work through the issues and get past all the glitches she was running into.
She called me at her witts end. She laid out what needed to be done and asked me if I could help. When I told her I could, she handed it over, and we had what she had spent months trying to do, done and she was live in 4 days.
A conversation with her afterward sparked the building of Save Your Sanity Publishing Assistance.
She wrote an amazing article about the process of writing and producing her book Bag Limit as a way to promote the book, but also as an inspiration for writers that might be struggling. This book took her over 4 years to write and publish. Most of us can relate to the information in it. You can find it right here.
