Your Point of Contact.

I’m Dalene Bickel, founder of Lasting Legacies Press, an independent nonfiction book publisher that offers a complete suite of services for aspiring authors seeking tailored, professional self-publishing assistance.

You can read all about me and my credentials on my About page, but I want you to know how happy I am that you’re here.

Perhaps you’ve just decided to write a book or maybe you’ve been struggling to write one for years. Either way, I’m here to help you.

First, you need to ask yourself:

  • Why am I writing a book?
  • What do I want to accomplish with my book?

Maybe you’re writing a book to promote your business, transition from blogger to author, or to simply check it off your bucket list. Perhaps you feel led to share an important message, educate readers or document your life experiences.

Once you’re clear on your answers to those questions, it’s time to take action.

I invite you to browse through the website to take advantage of the free resources, learn what services are available, and develop an action plan.

Your Book Won’t Write Itself.
