Ruth Schwartz, aka the Wonderlady, has been a member of the BAIPA board for more than four years and currently oversees the BAIPA website and communications. Known as a Book Midwife, she has helped more than 50 authors through the self-publishing process in the last four years, where they get clear about the steps needed to turn out a professional book that looks and reads as good as anything coming from a traditional publisher. Ruth has helped almost two dozen authors use IngramSpark effectively, especially in order to reach the bookstore and library markets. She also provides marketing, proofreading and book interior/cover design services, and helps clients set up basic author websites. You can find out more about her at thewonderlady.com.
