Just Do You is now available

I am so thrilled to launch my first book project and join the Minerva Rising family of authors. It was such a relief to have such expert advice and guidance throughout the process. Kim's coaching and editing really helped me to turn this project from essentially a "series of blogs" to a polished product that tells my story authentically and encourages others. I am so happy with the results! Her team at Minerva Rising has been amazing. I get so many compliments on the cover alone. It was a relief to have a team that was skilled in design, layout, and very thorough copy editing. As a newbie to the field, this was a dream. Thank you Kim, Alison and Stephanie - I so appreciate you all! Let's do it again!  (smiles)

Price varies depending on length and “game-readiness” of your manuscript.  We are happy to provide a quote upon request.

"Therefore, I would ask you to write all kinds of books, hesitating at no subject however trivial or however vast. By hook or by crook, I hope that you will possess yourselves of money enough to travel and to idle, to contemplate the future or the past of the world, to dream over books and loiter at street corners and let the line of thought dip deep into the stream."
