Soulful, Strategic Support for Your Extraordinary Book
Hi! I’m Dawn Richerson. I am a versatile, award-winning writer who has been creating unique, content-driven offerings for visionary authors and organizations for more than 20 years.
My experience as a nonprofit communications consultant, marketing director in the for-profit sector with expertise in publishing (worked for online publishing companies and helped dozens of authors self publish) and public relations (accredited by the Public Relations Society of America) give me a breadth of experience not typical of most in the consulting field. Combined with my own experience as a successful, soul-inspired entrepreneur and author for more than two decades, this experience gives me unique insights that help you navigate the complicated process of bringing your book to life.
I’m known to be quick and thorough in my work, and I pack a lot of value into my writing, editing and publishing services. Bringing together my intuitive and creative gifts with my skills and experience as an award-winning writer and editor with a background in marketing and publishing, I help you bring Your Extraordinary Book and other projects to life.
I like to maintain the highest standard of service for a small number of clients, so I choose to work with 3 to 5 authors on editing and publishing projects at a time, bringing these projects my loving attention. I work with clients all over the world and love to meet in person or via online videoconferencing for my signature Your Extraordinary Book Soul + Strategy Session. I can also assist with creating a clear content structure or creating a visual map to bring your book to life or design an author platform. Contact me with interest in these services.
I’ve edited hundreds of books, and give each one my love and attention, seeking to honor your unique voice, message, and intended audience, bringing greater clarity and allowing your fine gifts of original design to shine through. I’ve written more than a dozen books of my own, too, so I know what it’s like to bring a book to life. It is always a labor of love, and there is a vulnerability to the process, regardless of the topic of your book.
Custom writing, editing, and publishing packages are available upon request in addition to help with other writing projects. Contact us with questions or to discuss your project.

You took my very rough draft and helped me create a wonderful manuscript. You made me show not tell. You made me describe my characters and explain to the reader what they were thinking. You corrected my grammar and punctuation. And you did so much more. Working with you was a great learning experience for me and a real joy. Thank you so much for your professional manner while editing my book. ~ Alayne Smith |Author of the young adult novel Ellen and the Three Predictions, semi-finalist in the William Faulkner William Wisdom Creative Writing Competition
You rock my world! Thank you so much, Dawn!! This book is my gift to the world to help others find their own light, to get busy living, to have everything their soul craves, to know their worth, to finally see how beautiful they truly are inside and out, to feel comfortable in their own skin! I couldn’t have done it without you. ~ Morgan Field | Author of Epic Sexy You, named a 2017 Top Motivational book by Next Generation Indie Book Awards
“So you have a truth, an awakening, an awareness that can truly change someone’s life, because what is within you is a gift the world and some specific somebody somewhere NEEDS. Would you agree?” Dawn posed this question during one of the sessions I had with her. The question hit my heart and really laid the first layer of the foundation for me to write my book. Dawn has the ability to sense the depth and intention of a person. She also has the right words to blast away any so called ‘writers block’! She is non-intimidating, empathic, professional, and very warm. What an awesome book coach you are, Dawn! Please continue birthing writers! ~ Bushra Salahudeen
Dawn created a phenomenal book marketing plan for me that will definitely keep me on track and help me reach my goal of becoming a best selling author! She is insightful, knowledgeable, and creative. I will definitely be using her other services. ~ Samantha Gregory | Samantha’s book is called No More Crumbs
