“There are many wonderful books ideas out there, but the publishing process can be quite daunting. I became a book publisher to encourage others to share their gifts with others.”
Why did you become a book publisher? “After authoring books and publishing them through several companies I wanted to tap my experiences in helping others. There are many wonderful books ideas out there, but the publishing process can be quite daunting. I became a book publisher to encourage others to share their gifts with others.”
What do you like best about publishing? “I am thrilled when I am able to help someone bring their creative talents to print. Far too many professional educators and parents share their life gifts mostly with young people within a relatively small circle of others. I enjoy assisting these people in bringing their gifts to print so that they can vastly expand the number of young people they can influence.”
