Years ago, when I began looking for a publisher, my first problem was finding one that would accept my work, the second problem was finding one that cared more about me and my needs and less about their own.

When my first book was published, I had little say so in how it was delivered. I couldn’t choose the cover or how I wanted the interior of my book to look; and I couldn’t choose what my book sold for. What I received was a beautiful cover, but one that would have better suited an adult audience and a price that was far too high for a middle-reader novel. I had a difficult time selling my $18 book.

Years after that first book was published, someone in my family helped me to buy the rights back to “A River of Stones.” I made some editing changes at that time, changed the cover to reflect a middle-reader audience, and began to sell the book for $12.98 with better success.

In 2009, after finishing a degree in Mass Communication and not getting what I believed then to be the job of my dreams, I decided to help other writers out. I became a mentor, an editor and an all-around rah-rah coach. And I loved it. Still do.

My second and third books, “Conquering Your Goliaths: A Parable of the Five Stones,” and “Conquering Your Goliaths: Guidebook,” (both self-published) were just that, choices; and let’s just say, I conquered.

When Idea Creations Press came to be in March of 2012, I knew one thing; ours was going to be a publishing company where the author would be more in control than the publisher. We would be a writer’s dream publisher and would include all of the helps and services I wanted but never got.

We have great technical gurus with the skills to create an excellent book design inside and out. Talk with them about the cover. Plan it and then do it. Choose your interior layout. If you want pictures, do it. Decide what readers should be paying for your book. Choose your price. Make the money—all of the money that is due you. Idea Creations Press will take you from idea to creation, but after that you own the rights to your work. When you are happy with your book we are happy.

Choices.

Life is all about that. And it’s all about sitting in that swing and dreaming up your next book.

Just a quick note to thank you for the terrific presentation you and your husband gave at the Oquirrh Chapter meeting last night. I am eager to investigate the "Book Review Yellow Pages" as I desperately NEED reviews. I am also intrigued by several other suggestions including setting up a PayPal account for book purchases, as well as marketing books in unconventional places.

Again, THANK YOU.
