What is a book mentor?

Someone asked me today what a book mentor does. I answered, “A book mentor is someone who shepherds you through the book writing and publishing process.” Basically, I help new writers polish their writing, understand the publishing business, mentor them through the process of submitting proposals and manuscripts, and applaud their successes. I am passionate about helping writers realize their publishing dreams.

One way I do this is give away my services every day on Wannabepublished. I also mentor clients for pay through the Writing Spa.

I’m the author of seven traditionally published books (parenting, novels and one memoir upcoming). You can find out more about my books here.
