Why hire a Book Doula (Developmental Editor)?

I take your book’s vision from seed form to planting, rain, sunshine, and into fruition. Meaning, when you push I push, when you cry I uplift and encourage when you kick I tell you where, how high, and how hard. Just know you’ll never feel alone nor will your unborn baby book. You two will be well taken care of and I will help you to give labor to your manuscript until it’s ready to be shared with the rest of the world.

Just for the record, as your Book Doula, I will encourage you to know done is better than perfect. I will also help you to build your confidence for you to know that you are worthy of being a first-time book mother or father as well as a self-published author. I will reassure you of any plot holes, irregular pacing, uneven writing/characterization, or inconsistent points of view. 

Are you ready to give birth to your first book?
