What others are saying:


“From having no idea what I was doing when I was thinking about writing a book, to now seeing the book come to fruition, none of this would have happened without Dixie’s very capable yet humorous and supportive guidance. Not only has she guided me through the writing of the manuscript, she has helped me to see a wide array of complementary activities that go hand-in-hand with the book. Tremendous vision, awesome attention to detail, passionate about her work! I am recommending her to anyone who is passionate about writing a book and to be guided and encouraged along the way”

“Dixie has been my awesome publishing coach over the past 4 months. She took my book, helped restructure it, edit it, organise the cover design and electronic and print publishing. Her knowledge of this complex area is exhaustive. But more than that, her support, enthusiasm and encouragement was fantastic. I can’t recommend Dixie enough to others going through a similar journey.”
