The Sun Sisters Guide to the Girlfriends’ Perfect Beach Vacation

January 29, 2018

What happens when a creative group of women head to the beach and relax? They decide to write a book together!

The self-proclaimed sun sisters, Beth Gardner, Myra McElhaney, Pat Quakenbush, and Brenda Reese, did just that. Then they called me to put together their gift-sized book, perfect for a girlfriend’s birthday or hostess gift. I designed their book cover, formatted the interior pages, and coordinated with their publisher.

The Sun Sisters Guide to the Girlfriends’ Perfect Beach Vacation provides tips for planning future beach vacations while the stories will have readers laughing as they remember past beach getaways. The collection of stories from the seaside cover a broad range of topics from sunscreen to sharks, along with ways to maximize your fun.

I’ve also had the pleasure to work with Myra on three of her other books: Mama Always SaysMusings on Major and Minor Matters that May or May not Matter; and Building a Life You Love After Losing the Love of Your Life

I Love Books

October 26, 2010

I love books. I love the ideas I get, the things I learn and the adventures upon which I embark just by reading a good book. Books

My love affair with books started very young. I remember being thrilled when I could read a book by myself. I have many fond memories of carrying an armload of books home on the days the book mobile stopped at the top of our street during summer vacation.

My husband loves to read and we often share ideas or read passages to one another from one of the several books we are each currently reading.

I’ve taken my passion for books a step further. I now help authors transfer their knowledge, expertise and imagination onto the printed page and create their own book. I have nearly 30 years of experience as a graphic designer and marketing professional. In addition to my own expertise, I’ve accumulated many contacts who assist authors every step of the way, including writing coaches, editors, print-on-demand vendors, video production companies, PR firms, web designers, virtual assistants and more.

I’ve co-written a book called 30 Days of Gratitude and was the designer for both the e-book and the printed version. Download a copy of the free e-book at www.DaysofGratitude.com.

Improv to Improve Your Business is an example of another collaborative book project from idea through completion. I assembled nine authors, interviewed and ghost wrote the chapters, designed the cover and formatted the interior of the book. Through my connections, we had our first radio interview to promote the book a week after it launched. The book is now available on Amazon.

Contact me if you want to talk about your book. You can call me at 678-521-8820. I look forward to seeing how I can help you! You can find out more about me on my LinkedIn profile or check out my video profile.
