In terms of self-publishing, the process of producing a quality book is a separate and distinct effort from marketing one. Beyond that, book publicity is an entirely different effort, requiring the help of a professional. While social media is an excellent tool for reach readers, it can only take you so far.
Right now, the book has 22 reviews on Amazon – 81% of them 5-star ratings. Most of the feedback readers have sent to me involves gratitude for having created a heroine who represents their values and experiences. Many readers have confided their own issues with panic and anxiety disorder, and how Madeline’s struggle and triumph gave them hope.
It occurred to me that there are countless others out there who would enjoy and benefit from reading Water Signs — if they only knew it existed. That’s when I got the idea to set up a Go Fund Me.com account for this purpose.
The person I want to hire is a professional with a solid track record of results. I’ve interviewed a few of her clients and even referred a few of our Writestream Publishing clients to her. She is worth every penny of the $5,000.00 investment.
Which brings me back to my reason for this post. If you’re willing to share or donate, please copy and paste the link below:

I came across Michelle’s profile on LinkedIn when I conducted a search for professional formatters. As Writestream Publishing grows, we know we’re going to need even more fabulous formatting pros to help out with client projects. Michelle responded immediately to my email, which led to a nice correspondence and an appointment to discuss her services.
Soon after, she emailed me with a wonderful review of Water Signs — an unexpected, pleasant surprise. When Michelle asked if she could feature my book in a series of formatting videos she was creating, I happily agreed.
Received this wonderful feedback via email yesterday from a reader after returning from my interview with John Ricciutti of Radnor Studio 21. No matter how many times someone reaches out with positive things to say about Water Signs: A Story of Love and Renewal, I still get the same feeling of exhilaration and accomplishment. Once upon a time, publishing a novel seemed like an unattainable dream. Then the internet and advanced technology came along and made it all possible. I’m grateful for the many doors this novel has opened for me, including becoming the co-founder of Writestream Publishing and Writestream Radio Network. Thank you to all who have supported me in my endeavors!
