When author Sherri Wilson Johnson ventured into the Indie publishing world after receiving her rights back from her first publisher, she carried with her the love for telling inspiring stories, a very small budget, and enough know-how to be dangerous. With a D-I-Y mindset and much determination, she learned from some of the best in the business and began to develop skills beyond what she ever imagined possible.
There are countless steps and often many hiccups to publishing a book, and if you’re just starting out, you often don’t know where to begin. But you can do it! How does Sherri know? Because she learned how and you can too.
Through much trial and error, Sherri learned the art of cover design, formatting interior files for paperback and ebook and how to upload those files to Amazon’s publishing (KDP). With those tools, she helps beginning and seasoned authors alike see their books come to life.
Maybe it’s time for a one-hour coaching call with Sherri to get your dream of becoming a published author off the ground!
Should you use Sherri's services for your next project?
Just so you know, Sherri is not a publisher, a vanity press or anything in between. You, as an Indie author, are your own publisher.
After publishing 13 of her own books and working on more projects than she can count, Sherri has become a publishing unicorn. She’d love to walk you through the steps that are required for publishing a book in paperback and ebook.

Sherri offers a one-hour coaching session for authors who simply want to get started and don’t know which direction to go. Coaching sessions begin at $100 per hour.
She also offers packages of 6 one-hour sessions that authors can use throughout the publishing process to tap into Sherri’s knowledge base regarding publishing. Send a message via the contact form to request current rates.
