welcome one's book into the world

A certain woman was reading a book written by her friend and she said: From that day to this, my job has been to welcome Sonia's book into the world. This was easy: I read it in nightly installments like a thriller. I got to ask all the questions I wanted. She had the answers.

--- What does she mean by saying: welcome her book into the world?

    I think the metaphor being used is similar to helping with a birth - welcoming the new child into the world. By reading her friend's book, she's helping to prepare it for publication or sending to a publisher perhaps(?).
