Book Deal with Stillhouse Press

“If you’re like me you get so close to your writing that you can lose perspective. That’s when I was very lucky to have met and worked with book coach, Lisa Tener. She was helpful at several levels of preparation for my book proposal and book, American Snake Pit, a memoir about my work in deinstitutionalizing, Willowbrook, the worst asylum in American history. Her skill in organizing, shaping, editing, and honing the text improved the quality and readability. This was confirmed when the manuscript won honorable mention in Stillhouse Press contest, and became a finalist in The Southhampton Review, Frank McCourt Prize in 2016.

“I know that without Lisa’s help these honors would not have happened. “They were followed by a book contract with Stillhouse Press, with a launch at the AWP conference in Tampa. The screenplay for American Snake Pit has received a dozen honors at national and international film festivals.

“Lisa knows what she is doing and how to motivate her clients. I highly recommend talking with her about your book idea, proposal, or manuscript. Her clarity, sensitivity, and professionalism shine at every level. Let her take a look. Your book’s chances are better with Lisa on your team.”
