  • Do you dream of seeing your name on the cover of a book?


  • Do you dare dream of writing a best seller?


You can dream about both of the above bullet points, but first a dose of reality.


No one knows how many manuscripts are written each year that never find their way to a publishers desk.  It certainly is in the thousands, if not millions.  Therefore, becoming a published author requires a great deal of perseverance and hard work.  Are you up to it?


If you have a story, and are willing to put in the time to write, rewrite, and then rewrite some more send us a request for a consultation.





As noted in We, the Shamans,“Some folks have a knack for story telling, while others struggle endlessly.  Either way, putting the story down on paper is a learned skill, and as in most things, with practice comes improvement.”


There are many subjects, and ways to write a story.  However, to the novice, please buy a book on how to set-up and write a book.  If you are considering, or have written a family history, We, the Shamans will provide excellent guidance.

You might also consider purchasing The Soul of the Land to provide examples in how to tell your story.  If you buy both of them together, use the Shaman-Soul option for a special price.
