Editor's Corner September 2012

I am constantly moved by the many WITS clients who are dedicated to helping others. Yes, of course they want to sell books, but their primarily goal is to spread a message of hope and healing to the world. Why, just last month I had the pleasure of working with two new clients who have completely different approaches, but get their respective messages across just as powerfully. Sherri Starr, author of Mia and Jake: Finding the One (and our guest on the August 31st episode of the WITS Podcast) is on a mission to help singles find their soul mate with humor. Sola Olu’s inspiring memoir, The Summer Called Angel: A Story of Hope on the Journey through Prematurity, aims to support other parents struggling to save their newborns. Indeed, this is one of my favorite things about WITS: the opportunity to collaborate with, and learn from, a very diverse group of writers.

Our clients work so hard for others that it’s always a pleasure to make their lives a little bit easier. Author, blogger, and chocolate aficionado Doreen Pendgracs feels the same way; that’s why she recently shared this juicy tidbit (and godsend), The Espresso Book Printing Machine (I don’t think it makes coffee, but a girl can dream, right?). In any event, check out Doreen’s post, and let her know what you think.
