As a mentor to female entrepreneurs, I always recommend that my students consider writing a book as a way to share their expertise and passion with the world. Self-publishing has become an excellent way to get your book out there more quickly, but the whole process feels intimidating. Deborah demystifies the entire process —all in a helpful, cheerful manner that makes you feel confident about self-publishing your book. If you’re an entrepreneur who wants to self-publish, be sure to grab Deborah’s book – you’ll be thankful you did!

When I self-published my first book, You’ve Written Your Book. Now What? wasn’t available guide me! As I read this book, I found myself saying, “I should’ve done that” and “that would’ve been easier.” Most people aren’t aware of the many facets of publishing—Deborah has laid it all out for you. This book is a must for anyone considering the self-publishing route!

About Debby

inspiration and all

Deborah Kevin loves books. Ever since she taught herself to read at four-years-old, she’s had her nose stuck in a book. The day her mother taught her to draw her signature, which enabled her to get her first library card—well before her non-cursive-writing friends—was a magical day as it unlocked biographies, histories, and romance novels (ooh la la). Never in her wildest little girl imagination did she envision a day that she’d become an author and a publisher.

Long before she launched Highlander Press, friends came to Debby for editing and writing advice. Only then did she start to dream of a different life for herself—a life surrounded by books!

As part of the Stanford University’s Creative Writing cohort, she wrote Finding Grace, an historical fiction novel about two children solving the mystery of their mother’s disappearance. The book will be published in 2022 under Highlander Press. A second novel, Free Skate, is under development.

She lives in Baltimore, Maryland, with her family and their rambunctious pup, Fergus—that is, when they’re not off discovering the world.
