GET YOUR BOOK OUT OF YOUR HEAD AND INTO THE HANDS OF READERS
You’ve written a book … now what?
Your book is amazing!
You wrote it from your heart and it can change lives.
But how do you get it into the marketplace? What do you do first?
Our publishing program offers author coaching, book writing workshops, guidance on marketing strategy,
professional cover and interior design
Our Quantum Shift Publishing program will guide you step-by-step through the entire complex process. In the end, you'll know exactly what to do, when to do it, how to do it, and you'll be holding a professionally designed book in your hand. We'll have coaching sessions where we can get our hands dirty and come up with a customized plan that works for you.
This program has three objectives:
One, to help you write a book that is a page-turner.
Two, to produce a professional book you can be proud of.
Three, to sell as many copies as possible so you can increase your credibility and impact.
There are five aspects of the Quantum Shift Publishing Program. They often overlap each other through the entire process. You can join the program no matter where you are in your writing journey.
Author Coaching - we meet twice a month to talk about your book and answer any questions about writing, cover designs, marketing, and more. The private Facebook Group is a great place to get feedback from other writers in the program and post questions in between our group calls. These coaching sessions are where we get our hands dirty and come up with a customized plan that works for you.
Writing & Revising - we will help you write the first draft of your book and give you feedback on your writing. We also provide a professional book assessment and will one round of proofing. We also offer editing services at a reduced rate.
Book Strategy - we'll help you formulate a comprehensive strategy for your book sales, where you can sell them, how much money you can make from each strategy and how you can use your book in your business to bring in more clients and open more opportunities.
Book Production - you'll get a professionally designed book delivered to your door. And people can order it online anywhere.
Marketing & Launch - we put together a detailed marketing and launch plan that you can customized and implement to ensure your book is wild success when it is published.
I have been working with authors for over 25 years getting their books written, edited, published, and marketed. I've worked on self-help books, children's books, young reader books, college textbooks, autobiographies, fiction, collaborative books, and coffee table art books. I've also ghost-written many books for authors.
I am passionate about helping authors get published because I know the impact a book can have not only on the reader but on your business. It can open doors to opportunities you never dreamed possible. When I work with you I connect to the energy of you and your book to create a quantum shift in your project so that you can have the impact you want.
Your book has a life of its own … and when you allow it, it leads and guides you where it wants to go. And that journey can be so fun!
