My book After the Innocence is Gone was a hard story to write because it was about me. I hesitated for several years to attempt publishing until I worked with my book coach Paulette Harper. As a first-time author I needed huge amounts of basic information, the importance of skillful editing and a ton of encouragement. Paulette provided it all and guided me every step of the way. She had so many great tips I had to type them down quickly during each of our sessions. I came away from our sessions with a renewed sense of accomplishment and most importantly with the confidence that I was in fact ready to publish! Paulette walked me through each step, from editing and proofreading, to formatting and cover design all the way to self-publishing. She offered me insights on my personal website and set the stage for what was to come even after publishing. In addition to her creative ideas and marketing skills, she’s fun to work with. Paulette was instrumental in helping me to promote my book, by posting on my YouTube vlog, Facebook, and Instagram. All of which were a huge success! Once my dream became a reality, I could do nothing but shed tears of joy. Thank you, Paulette, for your encouragement, guidance and continuous support.
