Literary & Publishing Consulting Inquiry
Before you answer all of my questions, I'm sure you want to know a little bit about me. If you don't remember my name, it's Samantha Sali. I'm a published author, I work as a local journalist, and well, consulting! I've been married for four years and have an adorable 19 month old boy. I live in Wisconsin and when I'm not writing or working with clients, I'm binge watching Netflix, gardening, reading, spending time with family, swimming, crocheting...

Now I'm sure you're wondering what my qualifications are and things like that. I dropped out of college in 2014 for a few reasons, one of the main ones being I felt I was wasting my time and money because I didn't know what I wanted to do. That was a wonderful decision for me because it got me to start writing more, which got me to self-publish my own book, which led to tons of emails from friends and strangers about how a college dropout from Wisconsin published a book. I was spending so much time answering questions and giving as much advice as possible and don't get me wrong, I love helping people out, but my time is valuable. By helping others for free, I was glued to my phone and I lost some opportunities for other paid work (yeah, I know, I'm a huge people pleaser) so I decided to make consulting part of my job.

We can talk about more about me later, whatever you want to know...let's get into talking about you.
