Professionalism can be fun.
Over thirty years of business management have taught me the essentials of successful projects and lasting relationships:
- Clear communication
- Remembering to laugh
Crafting a book is like building a house.
The author / architect conceives the design. It’s their dream we bring to life. The editor / engineer inspects the nitty-gritty to make sure the structure is sound. The publisher / sales agent tells us how to meet the market’s demands. It’s well and good to write for art and passion, to tell your story from the heart. That’s what makes a book worth reading. Disregarding the need for editors and publishers is a shortsighted mistake. If you didn’t want to sell your story, you would simply write in a personal journal. Crafting a book is a team effort; we all learn from and support each other.
