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

Since book marketing is the key to any successful book, it should begin during the creative process, and build as the book moves towards the release date. During the production phase, we collaborate with the author to develop a custom marketing program that will create awareness for the book well beyond the basic publisher setup. Our marketing program uses both traditional and online strategies allowing us to quickly build a brand, increase followers and create engaging content all while promoting the book.

We understand first-hand that achieving success takes careful planning, hard work, consistency, creativity and time. With these qualities in mind, we work tirelessly to position the author properly within their genre, and share the tools and knowledge for them to continue marketing their book.

  • "Rick was a great help in the pre-self-publishing through post publishing process. I think he would have been even more helpful if I had contacted him earlier and developed a social media presence months before publication. Nevertheless, he was a great help with my book description and bio and in mastering the complexities of IngramSpark and CreateSpace/Amazon. He offered a variety of marketing ideas from using Twitter and Goodreads to suggesting newspapers and magazines that might be interested in various themes in my book."
  • Rick Lite helped me launch my book Hidden Treasures in Secret Places with his creative and innovative marketing ideas. His knowledge of book promotions, marketing and distribution are valuable to any author. I was lucky to find him when I did and look forward to working with him again.

  • "As an author, I want to focus on creating the most compelling book possible and not worry about the mechanics of publishing. Stress Free Publishers not only took care of all the details, they provided valuable guidance on the print size, copyright language and other decisions I hadn't even thought to consider. I can honestly say, "Unleash Possible: A Marketing Playbook that Drives Sales" would never have reached production in time for an important industry event had it not been for Rick and his team."
