Ami McConnell offers a variety of services. “I often refer to myself as a book midwife. I help authors give birth to books. As a mother of five, I love this metaphor. Creating a book can be arduous work, but it's also an exquisite joy! I’m in my sweet spot calming, coaxing, and coaching artists through this mysterious creative process. My goal is to help bring the author's most authentic, vivid voice to life on every page.”
