Do you dream of seeing your sacred work become a book?
You are a smart, talented, creative Being with a body of your life’s work. You have notebooks full of ideas and several shitty first drafts. You can see the pages in your mind's eye, but can't find the time, there are way too many distractions, and the tech stuff gives you a headache. You feel a little bit fascinated and a lot impatient. 
That's where I come in! 


I work with artists, writers, healers, and magick makers who want to turn the essence of their sacred work into something they can hold in their hot little hands. I specialize in self-published, non-fiction. I offer packages for:

  • Ideahhh! Generation & Magick Making

  • Supportive one-on-one writer coaching

  • Editorial review & feedback 

  • Book layout design & file management


Book Witching may not be a fit if:

  • You don't have an idea for a book

  • You need a book cover illustration 

  • You need a proofreader 

  • You are working on any type of fiction, children's book, or YA/Middle Grade reader

Still not sure? Contact me and let's chat.

Ready to stop struggling and get some support for your sacred book project? 

There are 4 ways for us to co-conjure some magick for YOUR powerful words. 

In my work as a Creative Manager with traditional publishers and a judge for the Writer's Digest Self-Publishing Book Awards, I saw so many authors struggle with their words, voice, consistency, and targeting the right audience. Many books were...well, sad to say, "unprofessional," not just in small ways, but with major problems with writing and design. There were some great ideas, but they just needed guidance. This broke my heart.


As a book witch, I work one-on-one with writers (yes, you!) to help you overcome the challenges standing between you and a book to hold in your hot little hands. I support you through the publication process from manuscript to final files and help create a schedule for success with magick thrown in for good measure. Most writers come to me with previous experience in healing, art workshops, art therapy, and best-selling courses, but they feel overwhelmed and uncertain about the next best steps to move their sacred works into book form, or they can't handle one more thing on their plate.

I'll help you stir the cauldron of your fabulous idea. I know the edges, the lay of the land, and the magick to guide us. It will be like having a little "book witch" on your shoulder.
