Open Book Company Authors

The following are The Open Book Company clients that I have had the honor of walking alongside during their writing journeys. Our partnership together on these books has ranged 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."

I'm Not Bad! 
I just want attention...

by Yashekia Felder Matthew


"Kim was amazing at proofreading and editing my book. She made small changes that added clarity and had a huge impact in how key messages within the book were delivered to the reader. She was detailed-oriented and super thorough with her launch and communication plan for the book. Kim eased my fears (there are many with being a first-time author) by sharing past learnings and offering helpful tips that saved time and money during this ambiguous process. I'd highly recommend her whether you are thinking about writing a book or already have one written and want to take it from 'good to great.' She has my complete vote of confidence!

"I highly recommend working with Kim. She has helped me in the writing process in several ways. First, she is very knowledgeable about the writing and publishing industry, so my questions about what to do when, how much things cost, how to organize various parts of the writing process--these questions she answered with ease and helped me navigate. Kim is also a wonderful writing coach. She is just the right mix of tough love and kind encouragement. I am grateful and honored to be working with Kim." - J,  Author and Entrepreneur

"Thanks to Kim, I was able to finally publish a book draft that had been sitting around for years. Kim was flexible and very easy to work with. She never rushed me. Her input was very valuable and her editing skills top notch. If you have a book draft sitting around, call Kim. She'll help you get it finished and published." - Cassandra Truax, Tarot Educator

"I met Kim at a crucial time in my writing process. I had actually finished my book but did not like how it flowed. She was really easy to work with and asked me a series of questions that helped her learn more about me and my desired outcome for my project. That provided a comfortable working environment for me. Some editors I encountered only allowed you to submit one or two rounds for feedback. I appreciated that she was willing to go above and beyond to get my book finished. I recommend any author seeking professional editorial assistance to reach out to Kim. She is completely transparent about what she can or cannot do and is there to give you the best support possible. Her attention to detail and insightful feedback helped me to bring my book to completion."

"My book, Feel Good Finance, would literally not be in existence if it weren't for Kim. What started off as a little quip about writing a book quickly turned into something I needed to do. Kim was more than a support in my journey, she was more like a guide. I don't think I was prepared for the rollercoaster of emotions, but Kim was always there with a clear understanding of my voice, much needed validation and normalizing, and was truly grounded in why it mattered to share my point of view. Can't wait to do it all again."
