Candice Montoya (CJ Dodge)
Candice, a real estate agent and sales coordinator for Juice Plus, had a vision for the children’s book she wanted to create—a book that would educate children about the role of phytonutrients in our bodies and inspire them to eat more fruits and vegetables. When she came to me, she had completed the writing of the story/script. Together, we identified an illustrator who balanced the style of art she envisioned as well as her budget. We ran the production and managed an international print run of the hardback version as well as getting the paperback available for sale online. Phyto the Friendly Firefighter has been available since December 2015.
Bethany’s guidance got me back on track after my project had stalled due to life changes. With her help, I was able to move the book forward by hiring an illustrator that was perfect for the job. Bethany’s knowledge made all the difference; from editing, design for the front and back cover, ordering the ISBN numbers, printing to publishing. I would recommend Bethany to anyone serious about publishing their book. I’m so glad I didn’t try to go it alone.
