Patti has lived through traditional publishing and self-publishing with her two novels. She has an understanding of what it takes to follow either path, and she understands the pros and cons of each.
She can help an author decide which path is right for them. If they choose to self-publish, she can help them navigate and manage the ever-changing world of self-publishing.
With the exciting new opportunities of print-on-demand (POD) and ebook publishing, writers are seeking new ways to get their work out in the world. Patti has helped several writers see their dreams become reality by designing their manuscript into both POD and ebook formats. Recent clients include Lorna Landvik (Mayor of the Universe; interior book design).
Copyediting and Proofreading
Patti has been copyediting and proofreading for more than nine years. She understands how to strengthen a manuscript without changing the author's voice. She knows where to add and remove commas, hyphens, and other pesky punctuation. She can see the big picture and the small details. Recent clients include Michelle Ray (Lead Yourself First: Breakthrough Strategies to Live the Life You Want).
