If you have a book "inside of you," we can perform a "book appendectomy" to help you get that book inside of you out!

Why work with a book coach? Whether your idea for a book is in the idea stage, or you've written a few chapters or the entire manuscript, working with a book coach can provide crucial direction and professional expertise that you just can't get if you haven't been in the publishing industry for years.

For example, do you know what is hot and selling in New York right now? We do! If you know what's hot and selling and can slant your material to focus on what these mega-publishers want, you could be waltzing away with a hefty advance.

Or perhaps you have a great idea for a book and think it will sell well. How do you know for sure? Do you have a marketing plan? Do you know who your competition is?

What about acquiring an agent or publisher? Who is trustable? Who has a proven track record? We've been interacting with publishers and literary agents for years. We know how they work and what they're looking for.

In this 1-hour telephone consulting session, we will answer any questions pertaining to your book project, including;

  • The best angle to take regarding your idea to attract a publisher
  • What publishers are looking for now
  • Every component you need to put in place to sell your book to a publisher
  • The necessary market research you must do before you write a single word
  • Formats that work well for non-fiction
  • Book concepts for marketability and salability
  • Self-publishing vs. traditional publishing
  • Literary agents
  • Book proposal writing
  • Book distribution
  • The market for your book
  • Your title
  • Endorsements & testimonials
  • Book marketing & publicity strategies
  • Strategies to "upsell" your additional services via your book
  • How to embed a code in your book to make more money

By the end of the consulting session you will feel on-target, and confident in the direction you need to take in order to achieve the success you desire.

"I want to thank you for your encouragement. Before I found your site, finishing my novel was a personal goal; having it published a lovely, if unrealistic, dream. Now, in the past week alone, I've created a website for my novel, arranged for cover art design and portrait photography, created two video teasers to promote my work and completed a refined first draft of another full chapter. I feel positive, motivated and more than ready to take on the world! :D Thank-you so much, Randy!" -
