She experienced publishing in the standard manner when ProStar Publications published No More Mondays and she’s well versed with the new print on demand method, which she used when self-publishing Andrea and Zeke.

LaVonne is willing to take speaking engagements for community groups in the San Diego area. There is no charge for her presentations but she requests the opportunity to promote and sell her books at and immediately following each event.

With the current print on demand capabilities, the publishing business has changed dramatically and it is now easier than ever to see your book in print.
