Press Release for announcement of certification for Professional Author Assistant.
Editors, Proofreaders, Professional Author Assistants, “500 Years of Lies: Discover The Extraordinary Number of Native Indian Gifts To The World”
One might wonder how they could learn so much history from assisting an author with their book. Colleen and Peter worked with Dave Patterson, the1492guy, through the entire process of manuscript creation, all the publishing details, and some of the marketing of his book. Peter did a magnificent job providing editing advice from beginning to end and Dave always said, “You aren’t going to hurt my feelings; that’s what I hired you to do.”
Colleen proofed the manuscript after all edits were completed and managed all the details to make sure tasks were completed in a timely manner. We held two monthly Zoom meetings with Dave to update him on the progress and answer any of his questions, he had access to us via email or phone when needed.
Dave worked with our team member, Wendy Dunning, Art Director, who assisted him on a bit of cover redesign and she designed the interior of the book.
This was a true team effort on all sides. It takes a village!
Professional Author Assistant, “Flip Flap Try… A Cardinal’s Journey” by Janet Kassalen
Colleen and Peter were honored to work with Janet Kassalen as her Professional Author Assistant from the early stages of developing Rainier’s journey through publication.
Peter and Colleen held regular consulting calls with Janet keeping her updated on the progress of the book and provided the necessary information for her to make informed decisions best for her book.
As Project Managers, we worked with team members to ensure all tasks were completed on time and in a professional manner, including, but not limited to, editing, book launch, and marketing.
Editor, “Activate Divine Creativity” by Kathy Rausch
Colleen copyedited and proofread the first two drafts of this book before it went to print. Exciting and thrilling. Colleen loves the written word.

I would like to thank whoever nominated me for this award. They would not show that information to me when I asked during the interview. Maybe I will write that book one day; I always have the words rolling around inside my head!
