Back from the Brink

It has been a while.

The summer was filled with boosting PaperBox Books, doing a soft launch for Fiction Therapy (both of which I’m partner) and maintaining SNB Consulting’s current clients. Unfortunately there were a few family tragedies (it’s been a bad year for Dads) that served to sideline business ventures for a while, as family tragedies are known to do.

PaperBox Books is booming. We have more submissions that we can easily handle which thrills us down to our tippy toes. Its sister company, Fiction Therapy is building steam and I suddenly find myself in the final planning stages of those seminars I’ve been promising.

Registration and price details still to come, but for now here’s a taste of what will be happening so you can mark your calendars:
