In 2012 Gail Woodard, publisher at Dudley Court Press, asked me to write a book about my methods after she had a pretty cool healing experience with me. I didn’t know how to write and wasn’t even sure where to start. With Gail’s help I wrote Live Pain Free without Drugs or Surgery, which quickly became a top selling book at Kripalu Institute for Yoga and Health. My second book with Dudley Court Press, Yoga for Pain Relief, led to my work being featured in three PBS specials. I trust Dudley Court Press. I know that they are looking out for my interests as an author

Our VIP Program is unique. We partner with our clients and we’re here for the long term for you. Like traditional publishers, we have high standards and don’t publish everything that comes through our doors. And unlike many unscrupulous publishing services companies, we’ll tell you the truth about publishing today and what you can expect from your book project.

Our process is different from most. We start our VIP Publishing Program with a conversation with you, the author. In today’s publishing world, the author is key to the success of a book. We want to know what YOUR goals are, what your definition of success is, and how you are positioned to achieve those goals. Then, if it makes sense to both you and us, we work with you as partners to help you achieve your dream.
