THE most often asked question by writers and would-be self-publishers in Google searches: “How to publish a book”. This prompts to show up 288 Million answers – many from Vanity Publishers, who lay out their traps… but also useful tips. However not every advice is suitable for every book and author. Only the manuscript, the authors goals, their marketing knowledge (often zero) and the potential readership for the upcoming book is known, publishing advice can be customized – not one size fits all.
Over the Phone / Skype Consultation
It’s a budget-friendly way to get started with your publishing process, building your platform and marketing your book(s). Consider discussing your book with an experienced (30+ years) publishing and book marketing professional, in a personalized conversation. This package includes a meeting of up to 3 hours – or two meetings of 1,5 hours via phone in North America or Skype (worldwide).
Great Benefit for You:
- Are you thinking about publishing your own book?
- Do you have a book you think will sell but don’t know how to market it?
- Do you want to start seriously publishing in POD (Print-on-Demand)?
- Do you want to learn all the in-and-outs of navigating Social Media?
- Do you want to avoid costly mistakes and time-consuming “trial and errors”?
- Do you want to do it right from the beginning, publishing in a professional way?
How it Works:
As better you are prepared as more you will get out of our “meeting”. Write down all your questions you might have in regards of publishing and book marketing. Prior to our conversation, you’ll fill out a comprehensive questionnaire, designed to familiarize us with your opportunities and audience. We will buy and read your e-book or go through parts of your manuscript if it is a print book only and study / evaluate the questionnaire, once it is filled out and returned to us.
After the consultation session you will get an analysis of your book or your concept.
Practical, Results-Driven Steps
Your consultation will focus on your most effective strategies for your book marketing and will help you prioritize practical, results-driven steps to best promote you and your book. If you haven’t published before we will help you to become familiar with all the possibilities available and their pro’s and con’s, so that you can make an informed decision.

We will provide a comprehensive introduction to book marketing as well as more targeted feedback on specific concerns and questions, including but not limited to:

After your consultation, we’ll send you a follow-up guide with hundreds of tips and links as a guide for your future publishing and book marketing activities. This way you don’t have to get distracted by taking notes while we are talking, and you will always have a “blue print” for future book publishing.
