The Book

‘‘I received ‘Smart Women Publish’ in the mail yesterday and opened it this afternoon. Wow Bev, it’s fabulous! Congratulations! Such an accomplishment, and abundant resource for aspiring authors. I had to put it down after 20 minutes because I was so excited I had to head to my laptop to keep writing! I’m so thrilled for you and I hope much success and many opportunities flow to you as a result of this book. Know that you have provided great value for your readers. Well done!’’

–Benita Bensch

‘‘Your book and your writing style impressed me most. Your book focuses on the reasons and motives behind writing and publishing a book and is very touching. I had tears when I was reading the first few chapters, because the way you felt in 1997 is exactly how I felt last year. I was struggling with my own unfulfilled dreams and all the challenges we need to face in our changing industry. I would like to feel the excitement I have felt before in my career. I want my book to both move people emotionally and also provide useful guidance and solve the problems. Thank you for telling your story through your book: that was inspirational.”
