Following our Publishing Checklist, we will guide you through every phase of the process, from concept to publication.

 Need help building an audience?
 
 
     
  A huge mistake many first-time authors make is waiting until their book is finished to begin marketing it. By then, you're already seriously in the hole when it comes to finding readers/buyers for your book. Sure, your mom's going to love it, but if only she and you know about it when it comes off the press, you're going to have a tough time selling many books.  
     
 

The best time to start marketing your book is while you are still writing it!

 
     
  We can help you create and implement a marketing plan for your book, working backward from your anticipated publishing date. Articles, public speaking, autoresponder drip campaign, and social media are just a few of the ways we can help you start promoting your book so that people are eagerly waiting to buy it on your launch date!  
     
    d
 Wait — what's a launch date?
 
 
     
  Savvy authors plan a date on which they launch their books — think of it as your book's birthdate. This is the date you bring your book out into the world, making it available for sale to the public. We'll help you plan the date and do all the prep work that goes into a successful launch.
