You have a business plan and gathered your expected or actual costs.

But now what do you do with it?


The thought of working with Excel worksheets or numbers makes your head swim and your eyes cross.

You’re not sure how to create a budget from all the data you have available to you.

I get it, not everyone is financially savvy or a tech/Excel wizard.


You’re a writer! You like words, not numbers.

Trust someone with both publishing

AND business experience!


As an indie author, I’ve traversed the publishing world and figured it out. So far, I’ve published 7 books, with two more coming out soon.

Combined with my 25+ years of experience working with small businesses, including being a CFO of a multi-million, multi-national company, I know what you need to treat your writing as a business, manage your money, and use your accounting data to make better decisions.

I’ve used these same tools and pricinciples in my own indie author business.

I’m one of those weird people that like both. I find a certain joy in creating spreadsheets that provide me with usable data or helps me keep track of things.

Using my 25+ years of accounting experience, I help you develop your budget from your business plan or from your prior year’s data. By the end of the half-day session, you’ll have a budget you can work with for the current or upcoming year.

This consulting service is available if you’ve done your business plan with me or not. It is an optional follow-up for those authors who have worked with me to develop their business plan.

I love working with nonfiction authors, especially women, in the occult/pagan communities, coaches/guides, healers, thought leaders, creatives, and mystics. I believe you have wisdom to share in your books and stories, and I want to help you do that as an independent publisher.

  • Christian fiction or nonfiction
  • Memoirs
  • Children’s books
  • Hateful, racist, misogynist, anti-LBGQT+, white supremacist, etc.
