Taking the stress out of book marketing


Work with a custom designed and proven book marketing program, using both traditional and online marketing strategies. 



Expand your basic book distribution to dozens of distributors and resellers in the U.S. and abroad.



Self-publish your book with an experienced, reliable and successful self-publisher. Enjoy personalized service with an attention to detail and results.



Self-publishing is a rewarding experience.

We believe authors should have creative ownership and control over their content, design, printing, marketing and how they get paid.  Even though it has become easier for authors to self-publish, creating and implementing a successful book marketing program still remains the more challenging, time-consuming yet necessary part of the process.

Since 2003 we have been successfully self-publishing books and other media. We have the knowledge, experience and track record to help other authors be successful. We will handle the entire process for you, saving you time and frustration. Your book, (physical and eBook) will be set up and available for printing and distribution properly and thoroughly. We guarantee your satisfaction!

Now that you're published, what’s next?

While your book is in the production phase, we will develop a custom marketing and distribution plan that will create awareness for your book well beyond the basic publisher setup. Our marketing program uses both traditional and online book marketing strategies, allowing us to quickly build a brand, increase followers, create relationships and promote your message.

While collaborating with the author, we launch these strategies within the first 4 months’ building a solid marketing foundation for the author. Our team of Top 5% Social Media Influencers will go to work for you solidifying the program to produce a constant flow of content and social media activity moving forward. Working with a custom timeline and analytics enables us to quickly recognize those strategies that are producing the best results, and make adjustments when necessary.
