the other contributors. This is a dynamic way to make a
difference in others as well as yourself.

of months. Typing, reading and re-formatting. You’ll need a designer
to create your cover, select fonts, and layout the book. Don’t forget
to get an ISBN# so you’ll be listed in all the book buyers and library
computers. Co-authoring gives you an efficient and cost
effective way to publish now!

potential to buy.
