Publishing Guidance (for writers & authors)


1 hour


You'd like to finish your book and publish it but don't know where to start? You've traditionally published but would like to reap the benefits of self-publishing and having control over every aspect of the process? Let's discuss actionable and constructive guidance for traditional publishing, hybrid publishing, or self-publishing models.

“I appreciate everything you've done for me, but probably what sticks out the most, is your consistent follow up to see how things are going, even with your busy schedule. The fact that after you helped polish up my query and proposal, I finally had my first positive response from an agent shows me how valuable your work really has been.” —Scott D., Michigan

I will help you with:

• preparing your manuscript (organizing ideas, chapters, formatting, front matter, and back matter)

• planning and budgeting for your publishing process

• finding, vetting, hiring qualified services providers (copyeditors, book cover designers with knowledge of market trends, interior layout designers)

• making sure your book is accessible on every platform you want to publish in, so all your readers are included and that you hire an ebook coder with accessibility knowledge

• marketing your book

Join me on one-on-one personalized sessions based on your schedule and budget (weekly, bimonthly, or monthly). For a step-by-step guide on how to build your author network, don't forget to pick up a copy of my book Networking for Writers (free shipping and personalized dedication included!)

Let's meet and create a plan to get your book in the hands of your readers! To get an idea of what it is like to hire me for this type of work, visit my testimonials page.
