What to Expect:

Hi Everyone!  I know the satisfaction of having a story worth telling and being able to share it publicly.  I am self-published, an independent author and this is what you can be too.  I am not a publisher. I am a personal coach who will work with you 1:1 to get your story into print. I do not collect any of your royalties. I charge reasonably for my services that take you from manuscript to publication on Amazon and/or Amazon Kindle. Charges are based on the length of your book and complexity (illustrations etc). We will work together to create a plan and a price to achieve your specific personal goals.  Let's make that dream come true!  All you need is an Amazon account, a computer/laptop/tablet, an internet connection and the determination to share your story.

An initial investment of $99 covers assist with set-up of online account and process, review of manuscript with feedback and actual publication.  A list of optional services can be viewed HERE.

Some of the optional things I can assist you with at extra charge:

1) Designing, Sizing and Formatting your book for printing;  

2) Creating a professional cover for your book;

3) Proofing/Editing your book pre-release;

4) Consulting with you on issues of ISBN, copyright, marketing, publicity;

7) Setting up your Amazon Author Page, Landing Page and/or one-page website/blog;

8) Other services you may need that are not specified;

9) Encouraging you every step of the way!  (no extra charge!) 

Click the "SUBMIT YOUR STORY" button above which will take you directly to my email address where you can submit your completed manuscript (preferably as a Word Document) which I will then review and send you an estimate of what the cost of the project will be.  Feel free to write me if you have questions! 


"I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Kate McGahan for all of the help and guidance she gave me regarding my book "The Twelve Trees of Christmas." I have always enjoyed writing short stories but never thought for a minute they would ever be published but with Kate’s encouragement, I finished the stories with the intention of giving them to family members. I sent my stories to Kate and couldn’t believe what she turned them into, the most beautiful book, she proofread my stories, corrected all of my spelling and grammar mistakes, the cover is absolutely beautiful, better than I could ever have imagined, she turned a dream into reality. She suggested I put it for sale on Amazon and to my surprise I have sold quite a few copies. I am now working on my second book of short stories which I hope with Kate’s help will be as successful as my first effort.  Thank you Kate."  Teresa Barker
"Hello, Kate and I are lifelong friends, both from Upstate New York. We are separated now by many miles. A few years ago, I asked her if she would help me write a book which had been hidden away for a long time. Writing a book let alone publishing one was something totally foreign to me. Well, I just published my third book and could not have done this without her help and guidance. Kate is the most patient person I have ever known. She will take care of you every step of the way. She knows her stuff and will help you; no worries about working with people who may try to take advantage of you. She is more than fair with pricing too. You will have a very pleasant and positive experience with Kate. "  Sincerely,  Joanne Patterson

"Ms. Kate McGahan's willingness and enthusiasm to help get an aspiring author started is magnetic. Her approach makes the whole operation seamless and her expertise guarantees a no-fail safe experience especially in the technical "ins and outs" of publishing for the first time. With each easy to follow step fear dissolves and confidence builds reaching a crescendo when the cover is created and you see your creation on line and available to the world. Kate is a wonderful energetic teacher who is willing to share what she has learned in the publishing business to give the novice a decided edge up on the rest of the newcomers to writing. I can attest working with Kate Mc Gahan can guarantee you a place among the published authors in the world; where you go from there is limited to your ability and imagination! Let Kate help you gain what you need for recognition and publication."
