When you partner with Cheryl, she'll help guide you through your publishing project regardless of where you choose to publish your book!

As a professionally trained Author's Assistant, Cheryl is highly skilled at working in collaborative relationships in a virtual environment.

Cheryl's background in print production combined with her experience as a self-published author, means she has the knowledge and skills to coordinate your project whether you choose to utilize digital POD technology, or print your book on an offset press.

Regardless of where you are with your project -- just starting to write, or ready to publish -- Cheryl can help make your book dream a reality.
