If you’re here, then you’ve at least been thinking about writing a book. I’m sure you have lots of questions though.
How do I begin? How can I make myself finish? When am I ready to publish? How do I know if my book is good? How do I publish a book? Will anyone read it?
All those questions are enough to stop your creativity in its tracks and slam the brakes on what could be a beautiful manuscript!
Writing is hard. Writing your own story can be even harder. Not only are you trying to embark on an unfamiliar journey, but you are also putting yourself out there in a big way. Your story is personal. Your experience is special. Sharing it with the world brings up self-doubt, fear, and other road-blocks that can derail you.
You can easily imagine yourself—your own book in hand—speaking to crowds, addressing students, talking one-on-one with someone you inspired, or helping a client get through a crisis. You know that your personal story can make a difference in someone’s life or in someone’s business. You want to help. You want to educate. You want to inspire.
Now how do you make that dream a reality?
You could dig around online every time you have a question, hoping to run across an answer that makes sense . . . and doesn’t involve a half-hour YouTube video. (Funny how you soon find yourself frustrated, reading your Facebook feed and giving up on your precious writing time, though.)
Or, you could work with an ally in the writing and publishing process who can help reduce your stress, direct you along the author path, keep you writing, and ensure you reach your goal with a polished, fabulous book—the best you could possibly write, better than you could have imagined.
Hi, I’m Cori. And I help people just like you crush their writing fears, complete their manuscripts, publish their books, and finally put their own books in the hands of excited readers.
If this sounds like your dream, then let’s set up a time to chat about your book! I want to help you make your dream a reality!
For ten years, I was a technical and scientific writer for the Department of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory, where I enjoyed telling the story of how products were developed for cleaner energy production and what scientists are really like, as well as the Department of Justice. I continued my career by starting my own business to help writers become authors.
An author myself, I have written six books: four in middle grade fiction, one chick lit, and one children’s lit, all self-published. I am also the executive editor and a contributor for the quarterly publication Inspiring Lives Magazine. I am a member and secretary of the Global Sisterhood and a board member for Passages and Prose: A Gathering of Authors.
I work out of my home office in Washington, Pa., a city just south of Pittsburgh and north of Morgantown, W.Va. I’m the proud mommy of two little girls, and I’m a fashionista and craft junkie who loves dry wit. My favorite books don’t have pictures—I love Salman Rushdie’s Midnight’s Children, Wilkie Collins’ No Name, and Christopher Paolini’s Eragon Cycle, among many others.
