What’s your story?

Perhaps you’ve overcome countless obstacles in your life and would like to share the lessons you’ve learned with others. Or maybe you have a brilliant idea for a contemporary romance novel, a paranormal thriller, or a compelling mystery.

Well, what’s stopping you?

Could it be that although you’ve got the content or the concept, you have no idea where to begin? That in spite of your rich life experience and boundless creativity, you’re stuck….and stumped. For a variety of reasons.

Maybe writing’s just not your thing. Or, maybe you haven’t a clue as to how to find a good editor, navigate through the independent publishing process and/or use social media to connect with your audience. The consequences?

You — and most importantly — your readers are missing out. Because even though technology has leveled the playing field for new and unknown authors, your fabulous idea remains locked inside your head or hidden away in private journals because publishing and marketing in the age of the internet is just too overwhelming.

That’s where I can help.

As a seasoned ghostwriter and editor, I know how to bring a client’s concept to life. Whether it’s a slightly fictionalized or straightforward memoir, or a creative work of fiction, I consult with each client to make their dream of writing and publishing a book a reality. All while remaining true to their vision and voice.

Speaking of technology, are you intimidated by the prospect of setting up a blog, Twitter account, Facebook Page and other necessary online marketing tools? I can do that, too.

Whether it’s simply set-up and training or ongoing social media management, I can help you create your brand, establish, and maintain important relationships with your readers, and ultimately attain your desired level of success.

Here a just a few of the services I offer. For a free, 30-minute consultation to discuss your unique project, contact me here.

  • Ghostwriting
  • Editing
  • Document Formatting
  • Management of Independent Publishing Process
  • Word Press blog set-up
  • Blog Content Creation
  • Social Media Sites Set-Up
  • Social Media Management
  • Social Media Training

Please note: In the slider above, I’ve included ghostwriting, editing, web content, and social media clients. While some of these services overlap depending on the client and book, all work together to help them reach their audience.

Water Signs on Kindle for $2.99

WaterSigns2.jpgBetter late than never, my 2008 novel Water Signs is now available on Kindle for $2.99. It’s been an interesting journey, navigating through this brave new media marketing world over the past six years. Although I haven’t actively promoted the book in a very long time, I recently realized that 1.) My network of contacts, friends and clients has dramatically increased thanks to platforms like Facebook and Twitter, providing a large new base of potential readers, and 2.) Now that I’ve completed two ghostwritten books and have a handle on social media projects for clients, I can make the time to (finally) finish Sea To Shining Sea.

One of the many benefits of being an independently published author is that you can never really penetrate your market; therefore, there are endless opportunities to reach new readers. And what better way to pave the way to sequel success than to have my audience fall in love with (or in many cases, all over again) Water Signs just before the sequel’s release?

If you would like to download Water Signs to your Kindle for $2.99, click here. For insights into the book’s various themes, literary techniques and characters, click here.

Thank you to everyone who supports my writing — I appreciate you! :)

“Ms. DiGiovanni is an impassioned champion of good old-fashioned stories.”

WriteStream_RadioNet_K60+285

Griffis__Cover-640x1024Very thankful for this wonderful testimonial:

“Writestream Radio” is the right place to go.  Ms. DiGiovanni is an impassioned champion of good old-fashioned stories.  Old-fashioned meaning they’re free of political cant, have something of a moral center, and are just plain entertaining.  She was a delightful interviewer who encouraged me to talk about my process and the story itself, something that I as an introvert don’t do easily, but Daria made it fun and I even learned things about my novel I hadn’t realized until her thoughtful questioning revealed it to me.  Short version:  she’s great.”

Miss Abigail Rich, International glamour model,  Playboy Playmate & 2015 Cover Model of the Year (1)After months of consideration and deliberation, I am thrilled to announce that the beautiful, inspiring Abigail Rich is hiring me to help her pen her memoir! In a surprise move, Abigail made the announcement during our interview on Love Liberty & Lip Gloss last Thursday night. To say I am thrilled about this project would be a huge understatement!

Abigail is not just a pretty face and hot body; she’s an incredible woman who has overcome tremendous obstacles in her life, including a nearly fatal helicopter crash that ultimately led to her unanticipated career. She is living proof that you can not only overcome and survive, but actually thrive — no matter what. Her can-do Texas attitude is inspiring and admirable.

At this point, we’re planning to produce a book within the next 12 months but as with all writing projects, that time-frame can change. I’m looking forward to assisting her with telling her remarkable story and sharing her unbreakable spirit with the world.

May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month

Karen_pp

Ah, spring is here, soon to be followed by summer! And for my northern friends who have endured another long, brutal winter no doubt plans of spending plenty of time outdoors are in the works for the warm weather season.

And why not — especially after suffering through months of cabin fever, thanks to endless snowstorms and biting cold?

But while you’re enjoying the balmy breezes, blue skies and moderate temperatures, be forewarned: the threat of Lyme Disease is even more prevalent this year, thanks to the abundance of snow this past winter. Via Karen’s Lyme Story, click on this must-read article on the topic.

Karen joins Lisa and me on Thursday, April 30 at 7 p.m. Eastern on Love Liberty & Lip Gloss to share her harrowing journey to recovery from Lyme and her advocacy work on behalf of both Lyme sufferers and medical professionals. Don’t miss it!

Read the press release below and contact me if you’re interested in interviewing Karen.

Although May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month, Karen’s Lyme Story.com radiates hope and awareness of Lyme year-round.

Karen Franks’ harrowing journey through the complex world of Lyme disease led to the creation of a comprehensive website where Lyme sufferers and medical professionals can discover practical information, help, and hope.

Broomall, Pennsylvania – Although May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month, former nurse and pharmaceutical rep Karen Franks has made it her mission to advocate, inform, and educate Lyme sufferers, their loved ones, and medical professionals about this little-known yet insidious disease 365 days a year.

She is the proprietor of the comprehensive site Karen’s Lyme Story.com, where she not only shares her own journey of diagnosis and recovery but also provides readers with the resources they need to overcome Lyme – a debilitating infectious disease spread by ticks that the medical community at large has yet to fully recognize and properly diagnose and treat.

Having finally located a Lyme-literate doctor and benefited from a successful, individualized protocol, Franks has now set her sights on helping fellow Lyme-sufferers to do the same. “Sadly, my Lyme story is all too common,” she notes. “Because I had not only worked in the medical field but also the pharmaceutical industry, I thought I would have been well-informed. Yet until I personally experienced Lyme — and consequently became a member of a highly misunderstood world — I hadn’t realized just how little I knew about this debilitating disease.”

Franks is also working in tandem with the International Lyme and Associated Disease Society (ILADS) in an effort to educate medical professionals. She spearheads the accreditation process for nurses who attend the Annual ILADS National Medical Conference, where they can receive CNE credits. The next conference takes place from October 15 – 18, 2015 at the Marriott Harbor Beach Resort in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Understanding the power of social media, Franks is a frequent guest on internet radio to talk about her work. She’ll appear on the women’s lifestyle show Love Liberty & Lip Gloss on Thursday, April 30 at 7 p.m. Eastern to share her thoughts on Lyme Disease Awareness Month and offer suggestions on how to prevent Lyme during the summer months when most people are happily engaged in outdoor activities. She also has a large presence on Facebook and Twitter where she shares information gleaned on the web in addition to her own blog posts.

To find our more visit Karen’s Lyme Story.com, where you can also contact Karen personally. She takes the time to respond to each and every email, with the intention of helping others to benefit from her own experience.

With the warm weather upon us, there is no better time to read up on how to prevent and treat Lyme disease. What do you need to do to protect yourself from Lyme?

Introducing Writestream Publishing LLC!

WriteStream_Pub_K60+285

I am absolutely thrilled to announce the formation of Writestream Publishing LLC with my dear friend and trusted business partner Lisa Tarves!

Author/metaphysician Lisa Tarves.

Author and Writestream Publishing Co-founder Lisa Tarves.

After much collaboration, our 2015 goal of expanding Writestream to include independent publishing services was achieved much quicker than we ever thought possible. I’d been promoting the concept on Writestream Tuesday as something we’d most likely accomplish in the 4th quarter of 2015, yet here we are already!

There are plenty of reasons for that including the fact that we already have several projects under contract just from publicly communicating our intentions to our Writestream listening audience. And since Lisa and I are both very creative, determined, ambitious, and intelligent women our combined efforts inevitably resulted in the early formation of our new company. To say we’re thrilled would be an understatement.

I am incredibly blessed to have discovered Lisa on a Google search back in late 2012, which quickly led to a good friendship, which led to my decision to invite her to become part of Writestream Radio back in 2013. Little did I know two years later we’d be teaming up to provide professional, affordable independent publishing services to everyone out there with a story to tell. In our experience, each individual has something valuable to share with the world and we’re elated by the prospect of facilitating the creation of books to educate, inspire, entertain, and uplift!

This past week we’ve spent countless hours setting up our website and creating publishing packages — a task that seemed monumental at times. But thanks to Lisa’s diligence, we now have a fabulous site filled with useful information about us and our services — which includes a price list and individualized payment plans. Whether you want to Twinkle, Sparkle, Shine, or Dazzle we’ve got you covered.

In a relationship with B.J. Quinlan.

For my part, I am indescribably thankful for the chance to apply my skills to a company I co-founded and co-own with one of the very best people I know. Being in business for yourself can get lonely, as much as I prefer self-employment to life in the cut-throat corporate world. Now I get to have the best of everything — the creativity and autonomy I crave along with the support of a smart, savvy business pro like Lisa.

Can life get any better?

Considering the fact that I’ve finally met the right man for me — one of the finest men I’ve ever known aside from male relatives (Dad, brothers, cousins) and am engaged in a loving, respectful, fun, supportive and committed relationship, life is absolutely amazing. Thank you, God!

I am humbled, grateful….and incredibly excited for the rest of 2015 and beyond.

Barry Lapes’ Amazing Weight Loss Journey

Skinny jeans, here I come!

Do you sometimes get stuck on your way to a goal, especially if it involves weight loss and improved health? I know I’ve been there in the past before discovering Isagenix, the same program the inspiring Barry Lapes employed to lose 237 pounds!

At this point in my journey, I am about two months away from my goal, losing steadily but not too quickly. I’ve learned that it’s really about the journey — the renewed energy, improved nutritional intake, better health — and NOT simply about weight loss. Yes, my desire to lose weight and my frustration at my lack of progress using every method that previously worked for me was my initial motivation for starting Isagenix.

I’ve since sponsored several people who are now enjoying the same wonderful health benefits. Like me, most of them were first attracted to the possibility of releasing pounds and inches, but now they are also experiencing even great benefits like improved sleep and reduced migraines. One of my associates is a committed athlete who researched the products diligently before getting involved and is now starting her own Isagenix business.

Whatever your reason for considering Isagenix, the video below featuring Barry Lapes on Dr. Oz will inspire and motivate you along your personal health journey. If I’m ever feeling “stuck” and/or upset that I still have a few more pounds to go, I plan to watch this video over and over again.

Congratulations Barry! Visit his website Barry Craig Lapes for more information.
