Publishing Consultation


There are great options for getting your book published in today’s marketplace.


Choose Your Best Publication Route

Today, you can self-publish digitally and/or in print with a reputable print-on-demand publisher, or you can hire a hybrid publisher. If your book has commercial potential and you’re interested in finding a traditional publisher, I can help you take the necessary steps.

A 1-hour consultation with me can save you a lot of time. I’ll outline the pros and cons of the different publishing paths—traditional publishing, self-publishing, and hybrid publishing—and help you understand and begin to navigate the field.

Besides considering your prospects and guiding you in the best direction to suit your needs, I provide consultation on your book title. Book titles are essential in the sale of your book no matter what publishing route you choose.

By the end of our call you’ll have manageable and specific next steps in place to get your book published.


What’s Needed for Marketing and Promoting Your Book?

In a 1-hour call devoted to marketing and promotion we’ll cover strategies that can benefit you regardless of the publishing option you choose. We’ll address book launches and what’s recommended for a successful one and review the timeline for pre-publication so you can be prepared. I’ll share useful resources, too, to help you get where you want to be.
