Wherever you are in your book journey, I can help guide you. All it takes is a willingness to be open and honest, to listen, do the hard work, and have a thick skin. Publishing ain’t for the faint of heart, but it can be a lot of fun. Are you ready? Let's get to work!
Got a book idea? Don't know how to make it a reality? Let's sit down and talk shop. I'll get to know you, your idea, your goals, and give you strategic, research-based feedback and direction.
Got a manuscript? Let’s look at your initial concept and the story vs. your goals. I’ll give you feedback on the content, your target audience(s), comp authors and titles, and where your book might sit in the marketplace.
Got a book? What about a marketing plan? Are you swimming in thoughts about how you’re going to sell it? I’ll work with you to produce a strategic, sales- and target audience-driven marketing plan that you or a trusted partner can execute.
This is your author platform. Personal brand development. We'll take a look at your current public presence, who you are as a person, a professional, an expert, and writer. We'll identify what your real value is to your target audiences and create a plan to get the word out.
Is your online listing ready for primetime? I can work with you to develop the most effective book description and author bio, identify the right book categories and keywords, and help ensure that readers (i.e., buyers) can actually find your book on platforms like Amazon.
Do you just want to spend an hour talking out your ideas and goals to get informed feedback from an actual marketing and publishing professional? I can do that! Email me and we'll set something up. NOTE: This isn't a new business call; I will offer you advice, direction, insights, and suggestions gleaned from my 25+ years of experience.
