Open Book Company Authors

The following are clients of The Open Book Company that I have had the honor of walking alongside during their writing journeys, ranging from editing to book coaching to self-publishing support. To be clear, the success these authors have achieved is both defined by them and achieved by them. I am simply a partner to them on their path.

"Working with Kim on writing and getting my first book published was exactly the support that I needed. She is patient, knowledgeable and encouraging. She provides great accountability and is a great motivator. I would highly encourage anyone looking for book writing coaching to work with Kim."

"The first time Kim and I spoke, I felt the magic. I appreciate that Kim operates from a model of abundance rather than scarcity and that my most important values align with Kim's values. Kim made the whole process of self-publication much easier to navigate for me as a first time author. Having her walk with me each step of the way made all the difference. She has done so much to help me tell the story I needed to hear years ago. She is an advocate for me and my work, and I can’t wait to bring more books into the world with her."

"I had written five children's books and had not done anything to move forward to become a published author until I met Kim. [She] listens for understanding and provides the best coaching advice. Working with Kim has really helped my confidence and provided clarity on how to become a successful author. I will also be using Kim's services for my next book."
