Book Consulting


A2Z BOOKS

 

One of the ways I give back, or pay it forward, is by assisting other writers to fulfill their dreams of seeing their creative work in print. As a book-publishing consultant, I created A2Z Books in the summer of 2011. I had my first client, 93-year-old Dr. Alex Willis, who had a book he wanted published. I work with a team, which consists of an editor, a book-designer and a printer. Meet the authors and their books:

Dr. Alex Willis

Your Path to Enlightenment (October 2014)

Your Path To Enlightenment

Your Path To Enlightenment

Regardless of where you are now, greater happiness is within reach. The only thing holding you back is your faulty belief system—“knowledge” which you adopted without any conscious thought, unaware some of it was inaccurate or, quite simply, untrue. Now you can learn to become aware of the self-imposed limitations chaining you down, and choose to break free.

Grandma & Papa Press

(See images above for pictures of these books.)

When our grandson, Eben Thorpe-Keith, was 2-1/2 years, he created a series entitled The Adventures of Hammer and Shadow in which he was Hammer and I, his trusted sidekick, was Shadow. For two years we played the adventure of Hammer and Shadow in Outer Space. I taped this adventures to make a CD and to play it at Eben’s wedding. I asked permission of his mom to write the first adventure into story format. My husband and I created Grandma and Papa Press and published the story as a children’s book in 2006, when Eben was four. Two years later, Hammer and Shadow Meet the Bubble Blowing Dragon was published. There is a third book in this series, Hammer and Shadow Meet The Crazy Scientist of Rock Island, where I, Grandma/Shadow, will be turned into a robot by the crazy scientist!
