Do you have what it takes?
AFTER PUBLISHING SERVICES
How you market your book depends on what your goals are. Maybe you’re looking to become a thought leader and influencer in your field. Or you’re already there and need a further boost to reach a broad audience?
Your book is your calling card to your audience.
Once your writing has been thoroughly edited and proofread, the final proof is ready for print. Our team of freelancers creates the book cover and sleeve design. They will format your book for delivery in hard, softcover, and e-book formats.
Our team will write your bio for the back cover and get it in shape to market. Design services are billed as a one-time fee.
AMAZON #1 POSITIONING
Everyone wants to be number one on Amazon. It involves choosing the right keywords, creating backlinks to your website and external sites, while pitching the right Influencers who will jettison your book way up in the rankings.
We use your database to touch base with your friends, colleagues, family, and anyone else who may be early adopters to purchase your book. Positioning Services are billed as a one-time fee.
THE MARKETING PUSH
After your book is published, you, the brand, and you, the author, will want to promote it to your target markets. A well thought out marketing strategy is needed to guide you over the long haul, especially if you’re using your book as a calling card to promote a new business.
Marketing can take many forms, like launching a social media press campaign, booking speaking engagements, or embarking on a tour to sign your finished work. Marketing is billed monthly for a minimum of six months.
I have had the pleasure of working with Elise for the last six months as my book coach, editor, and guide. She’s a seasoned professional who leads with her heart, and has helped me find my voice. I am indebted to her for her guidance and her wisdom in taking on this challenge.
She was patient when I needed the space, stern when I needed a push and empathetic when I needed to be understood. For almost 30 years I have carried the dream to ink my thoughts in a way that would make an impact for my audience. Elise’s skills and experience translated into making my book a reality!
It’s not just grammar and punctuation with Elise. After she edited my manuscript, her guidance was instrumental in assisting me to complete the project. She asked the questions to pull the emotional story out and offered some excellent ideas.
I am grateful for that guidance and recommend her services to other authors.
The subject matter of my non-fiction book is highly specialized and challenging to get the complex concepts across to an audience who has never experienced the program we offer. I thought only another practitioner in my field would be able to edit such a manuscript. Yet Elise has worked miracles with the entire document: from content clarification, revisions, suggestions, and line editing, she can pinpoint exactly what needs to be added or removed.
She expertly recommended changes that bring my co-author and me closer to the reader in ways I couldn’t have done on my own. I highly recommend working with Elise if you are a thought leader who needs an editor or ghostwriter. She understands marketing and how your book can best reach your intended audience. I have found her take on our ideas invaluable.
I was born with a talent for writing and was first published in my teens in Circus Magazine, the leading American rock music magazine of its time. I later became the Tokyo Bureau Chief of Billboard Magazine and New York correspondent for New Musical Express (NME) in the UK and Canada.
For most of my career, I worked in the fields of public relations and communications. People began asking me for advice on how to write their books. I finally turned my attention to helping others learn the craft I perfected decades earlier.
I am the coach I never had when I began writing my first book decades ago. I just sat down and did it, and so will you! Except you’ll have the benefit of an expert with decades of experience. I coach you to determine and then craft your book’s theme, summary, chapter outlines, and content. If you’ve already written all or part of the book and seek a critical eye to evaluate it for content, marketability, or both.
I’ll discuss who your audience is right from the outset, so your message is on target and something readers want because when you write to your audience, they will hear you.
Along with bringing marketing insights to your book, you’ll benefit from working with a big picture thinker, accountability mentor, and writer with a hawk’s eye for detail, organization, and structure.
