It’s time to add some words
to that blank page.


You’re stuck at the start of your book project, unsure how to organize your ideas, outline your content, define your goals and expected outcomes, profile your ideal reader, and figure out what comes next in the publishing process.

One false start after another trying to move forward in your author journey feels like trying to swim in quicksand (and getting the same result). 

Lots of authors struggle at the start of their book journey. What that results in is pretty much nothing. Either no book at all, or no sales and a whole lot of disappointment.

I don’t want that for you. Why?

Because, when authors struggle like this, they:

  • Lose confidence
  • Waste time
  • Spend way too much money
  • Give up before they achieve the rich results they expected


Let’s make sure you don’t have to go through this. Why?


Because, as a successful author, you should:

  • Use your book to extend your brand and your credibility beyond the board room
  • Be confident in your knowledge and expertise
  • Be clear about how your book will serve you and your readers
  • Enjoy writing your book . . . and every other aspect of being an author
  • Define the ideal outcomes of your author journey
  • Create multiple ways to leverage your book 
  • Work with me, and you’ll get all of this and more!

Your book isn’t going to magically be awesome. You have to make it so.
And I can help.



I’ve worked with dozens of successful authors to produce award-winning books that gained them media visibility, more clients, paid speaking invitations, and industry respect and recognition.
Who doesn’t want that?

Anyone who is ready to finally write a book and get it published should work with Anita because she knows how to flush out ideas, what it takes to produce a quality book, keeps you on task, and is so fun to work with. Her support and publishing guidance were invaluable. Hiring Anita is one of the best decisions I’ve made. Without her I could not add author to my list of accomplishments.

~ Terrie Hudson, author of Leave a Legacy That Counts


Anita helped me through every single step of this intimidating process to ensure that I did not give up or put out a book no one would want to read. She even helped me with the over whelming task of trying to market my book.

~ Heather Rogers, author of A Simplified Life


[Anita] provided clarity where there was none, order where there was confusion, and valuable insights into how to transform my manuscript into a book I feel proud to publish. She is an essential resource for a first-time author.

~ Shelley Hammell, author of You Think You’re Coaching But You’re Not: How Great Leaders Build High-Performing Teams


Thank you for sticking with me on this project. Your patience, sense of humor, guidance and compassion enabled me to complete it. You are a true professional.

~ Mike Pitcher, author of The Seven eLements of Leadership for a New Breed of Leader


Anita obviously knows the business of being an author and a speaker inside out. Her guidance and insight helped me navigate my blind spots and pushed me to improve my process dramatically. Her thoughtful approach also raised the bar on my branding and messaging. I cannot say enough about how pivotal her influence has been as I launched my new career – even after 25 years as a business owner in other markets.

~ Stacey Ruth, author of Truth & Dare: Inside Out Marketing

If you’re ready, I’m ready to help you become “author of”.
