“You should write a book!”
Those five words make you feel like you’re on top of the world… until they don’t. They’re like a shot of confidence, followed by a dash of pure, terrifying vulnerability.
You know your story could help people, but you’re just not a writer.
And that’s a recipe for self-doubt.
Am I even qualified to write a book?
What if my book fizzles after the first chapter?
Do I have time to write…er…learn to write a book?
Will people come after me for what I want to say?
What if nobody reads it at all?
Take a deep breath.
These thoughts are all completely natural.
All of the authors you admire once stood where you are now.
They refused to let doubt derail their dreams.
And now, thanks to their book, they have a whole community of people who know, like, and trust them—most of whom they’ve never even met.
How did they do it? With a little help from their friends.
And a lot of help from publishing professionals.
That’s where we come in.

Bosnian refugee whose family founded a major transit company
I am not a writer! But I know that we needed to have our full story written down and professionally done, so that is exactly what we did.
I had a vision and Amanda brought it to life.
I thought it would be way more intensive and take a lot more discovery/research on my part but Amanda did all of that!!
She was flexible and willing to research and learn more about my background and Bosnia as a whole. She even came to Bowling Green to get to know our family and it was amazing!
If you do not have writing skills but have a vision for your book, Amanda is your gal!!
Your book could help so many people.
But if you want to reach the masses, you’ve got a lot of work to do.

Hello! I’m Amanda Nell Edgar.
I’m an actress-turned-academic-turned-author who found my purpose in helping others tell their stories.
I founded Page & Podium Press because I believe every story deserves the New York publishing treatment, regardless of what the gatekeepers say. And since I believe it takes a village to publish a book, I brought together some of the most talented, values-driven professionals in the industry.
Our clients are proof that you don’t have to be a professional writer to publish an impactful book.
Former Olympian and founder of a major national women’s health organization
I appreciated the very high level of expertise that Amanda had. I never realized the ins/outs of the publishing world and would not have navigated it effectively alone.
After working with Amanda, I landed a top tier, well-known literary agent in my first pass within 3 months of submission! Actually got an immediate response from them and then a true response of interest. They asked for some clarification and then signed!
Amanda is funny. Her writing is flawless and emotive. She lifted the details of my life into what will be a Netflix film. I would do it all over in a heartbeat. Many hours of work with her over weeks and months. So it is important to find someone who not only believes in you, but can make you be successful in an unforgiving industry. Amanda was ridiculously knowledgeable about helping me craft and write a story that my agent said stood well above anything that has crossed her desk.
If you’re nervous about anything with the work you want to see come to light or the money you will need to invest—talk to Amanda. Then you will understand why you would do well to hire her. She is Simply the Best.
Still feeling overwhelmed?
You are so far from alone!
Publishing is one of the most secretive, exclusive, snobby industries around. From the outside looking in, it’s hard to make sense of it all.That’s why we put together our Book Strategy Quiz to give you the inside scoop on the writing and publishing path that fits your goals.
When you work with Page & Podium, we invest everything we’ve got into helping you succeed.
Not sure what that looks like?
