The road map for your author journey

Hello Author! Have you ever wondered if you were doing what you were supposed to be doing? Writing is tough work, and by the time you add design, editing, marketing, social media, promotion, distribution and more, it begins to feel impossible to take your beloved book to the masses. There are millions of books out there, can the market really bear one more?

You bet it can! Large publishers roll out new books every week that go on to win the hearts, minds and pocketbooks of millions of readers. So why can’t your book get the same acclaim? The answer isn’t only distribution, even though that is part of it. The main answer is processes. The people and publishers with track records of successful books repeatedly do the same things over and over because they know what actually works.
